Hand crafted and small batch distilled in a bespoke copper pot still, Reid + Reid Native Gin is a unique New Zealand gin created in Martinborough by Stew and Chris Reid.
After a two year mission to forage the landscapes of NZ for aromatic native plants that best compliment a classic dry gin, the brothers settled on Kawakawa, Manuka and Horopito making it a quintessential New Zealand gin.
Tasting Notes: Juniper and floral notes followed by citrus. Peppery and ginger spice on the palate and a vibrant, aromatic finish.
Reid + Reid Barrel Aged Gin combines two great aspects of the Wairarapa: native bush and pinot noir.
Distillers and brothers Stew and Chris Reid take Reid + Reid Native Gin, which uses three native botanicals (kawakawa, manuka and horopito), and age it for three months in ex-Martinborough pinot noir French oak barrels. Not only is this gin truly reflective of the region it is produced in, but it challenges your perception of what gin can be.
Tasting Notes: Red currants, juniper and savoury oak. Light, peppery and floral spice on the palate followed by a sweet red fruit finish.
