Reefton Distilling Co. creates a range of international award winning spirits.
Learn about our Reefton Distilling Co. history, the story of our Founder and why we established a distillery in the Tai Poutini West Coast rainforest. You will relax in the Lounge at our Cellar Door and original distillery, in the historic Haralds General Store and get a glimpse of where our story began and the 380L column still that created our international award-winning spirits until September 2022. This still has now been been turned into a time capsule, which will be opened at our 100 year anniversary in 2117.
You will enjoy a complimentary tasting of a selection of our products and have an opportunity to shop in our retail store before self-driving - 2km – to our new distillery. There you will be given a tour of our brewhouse, stillroom and bottling area and an overview of our sustainability initiatives.
This tour covers the distilling process for our Moonlight Creek single malt whisky and Little Biddy Gin.
Duration: 1hr 15 minutes
