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!!

GOLD for Curiosity Negroni Special!

GOLD for Curiosity Negroni Special!

Great news! Our Negroni Special won a Gold Medal at this year’s prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Recipe #23 and Pinot Barrel Sloe also picked up Bronze medals giving Curiosity Gin an exciting Medal Haul for 2018.

New Zealand’s First Sloe Gin!

Our Pinot Barrel Sloe is a strictly limited single batch. Made the traditional way, we brought from the UK the finest Sloe Berries available and steeped them in Curiosity Gin for several months in a barrel that was previously used to age Otago Pinot Noir. Sweetened with natural sugar before bottling, the resulting liqueur is a luscious red colour and exhibits the smooth and slightly bitter, intense sweet fruit flavours of a classic Sloe Gin with an added back note of the fruity Otago Pinot from the barrel in which it was made. his is New Zealand’s first and only Sloe Gin (as far as we know anyway!) and only 274 bottles were available from this one and only barrel.

Serving Suggestions: Fabulous in a long drink with Tonic, as a Sloe Gin Fizz or with Champagne as a Sloe Gin Royale it’s the perfect drink for a Kiwi summer
