Pinot Barrel Sloe Out of Stock

Hey everyone, sorry but our ever-popular Pinot Barrel Sloe is just gone out of stock for online orders☹️

Never fear though, there is a new batch in the barrel, only about a month away from being ready. We also have new Sloes on the way from the UK, which should arrive any day now, so more will be going down soon!!

You can of course back-order on the website and there are a couple of bottles still available at the distillery shop if you are visiting!

Sorry again! Growing pains!!

Founders Celebrate First Anniversary

Founders Meeting on 1st Anniversary

On Friday the four founders of The Spirits Workshop (Antony, Rod, Bernard and Sam) got together to discuss and celebrate the first year of operation. It was a fun evening looking back at some of the achievements of the past 12 months;
– releasing two gins and a vodka
– building a great stock of ageing whisky barrels
– winning a Gold, two Silvers and a Bronze at international competitions
– Selling our first private whisky cask
– making our first export order

and looking forward to the next twelve months and the things we have planned;
– release two more new gins before Christmas
– add the first “special” barrels to our whisky ageing program
– more than double the volume of whisky ageing
– to set up and run New Zealand’s first gin festival
– expand our distribution in New Zealand and export markets

And of course continuing to have fun and make fabulous spirits!
