A STORY OF ADVENTURE
George Fairweather Moonlight was a legendary gold prospector and discovered New Zealand’s largest gold nugget at Moonlight Creek. With gold nuggets the size of potatoes, it was soon crowded with fortune seekers. George wasn’t one to stick around for long, and soon moved on in search of new goldfields. For him, the thrill was the adventure of locating the gold, not gaining wealth.
Like Moonlight, we don’t seek to follow the crowds.
From the Southern Ocean
Reefton has the key ingredient for great whisky in abundance. The prevailing westerly winds bring warm, moist air thousands of kilometres across the great Southern Oceans to New Zealand, cooling and condensing as it hits the West Coast. Thick dark clouds move up over the land before dropping heavy rain, filtering naturally through the native New Zealand rainforest before being released from hidden springs near Moonlight Creek.
