Lighthouse Gin
Distilled with Yen Ben Lemons

Inspired by the Cape Palliser Lighthouse at the southernmost remote tip of New Zealand’s North Island, Lighthouse Gin offers wanderlust flavor seekers a bright, balanced, and unadulterated beacon – an essential gin experience from a remote corner of the world.

Every drop of Lighthouse Gin is handmade by Rachel Hall, New Zealand’s first female Head Distiller, and crafted in small batches using natural spring water from the Remutaka Range’s ancient aquifer. Lighthouse Gin contains nine botanicals including hand-zested Yen Ben lemons that gives way to a low juniper, citrus forward taste profile that is clean, fresh, and vibrant.

Subtle citrus, clean pine, and hints of herbaceous notes

Initial brightness for lemon zest, juniper, and coriander accents, spicy mid-palate of cinnamon and cassia bark

Soft lingering finish of cinnamon, liquorice root and almond

The Process

icon grain

Our gin base is made from high quality grain combined with pure spring water that filters down from high in the Remutaka Ranges. Head Distiller, Rachel Hall, collects this pristine water herself from an ancient aquifer found on the Wharekauau Country Estate.

icon lemons

Our nine hand selected botanicals are prepared, including hand-zesting the Yen Ben Lemons, which is then macerated in a copper-pot still overnight to extract the flavors before the first distillation.

The gin is re-distilled without the botanicals. This double distillation process creates a gin with a much more refined, smooth and elegant palate.

icon bottle

The final product is bottled at 40% ABV – an approachable proof that let’s the botanicals shine through.
