Little Biddy Gin – Classic, 700ml

New Zealand Botanical Gin (40%abv)
Regular price $84.99 NZD

Created in honour of Reefton legend Little Biddy, a gin-toting, 4 foot tall gold prospector. Our search for native botanicals takes us deep into the same West Coast rainforest where Biddy once fossicked for gold, to craft a uniquely New Zealand selection of small batch distilled gins with attitude.

Like its namesake, Little Biddy Gin – Classic, is robust and hardworking with a striking aromatic bite. Native Toatoa endures the harshest winter conditions without losing its fresh, vibrant tannic character. This versatile, easy drinking gin has a complex palate of spiced citrus with a lingering warmth.

Serving Suggestion: Can be enjoyed neat, or with a quality tonic or soda water.

Best Gin Ever!

I finally got my hands o this gin in January. My mouth is watering as I write this. It's the best gin ever. The flavour, the lightness, the whole experience. I drink it with Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic. Brilliant by itself. Goes fabulously with mandarin peel and juniper berries, lime, rosemary, cucumber. Whatever mood you are in! Congratulations guys on this brilliant drop!



Phyllocladus alpinus also known as mountain celery pine is an inhabitant of Reefton’s lowland to sub-alpine rainforest.

This native plant delivers a vibrant resinous tannic character to our Little Biddy Gin range crushing leaves between your fingers releases subtle citrus elements that are quickly followed by rich, fresh pine resin notes.


Pseudowintera colorata grows freely in the rainforest surrounding our distillery. Horopito is also known as the New Zealand pepper tree because its leaves have a hot peppery taste.

Horopito combines with old world spices to provide our Little Biddy Gin with a complex spicy sweet aromatic finish.


Pittosporum eugenioides also known as native Lemonwood, gives a bright palate of citrus to our Little Biddy Gin range.

Familiar and yet completely new, distilled Tarata adds a fleeting green, woody, floral brightness that lingers.


Dacrydium cupressinum grows in the ancient rainforest surrounding our distillery and is just one of the thirteen botanicals in our Little Biddy Gin range.

We only use fresh Rimu which adds to the strong pine resin note that characterises our Little Biddy Gin range.

Douglas fir

Pseudotsuga menziesii adds a strong pine resin note to our Little Biddy Gin - Classic

Although not a native to NZ, we include Douglas fir in our Little Biddy Gin range as a nod to the early settlers who like this majestic tree put down their roots here on the West Coast.
