New Zealand

A boutique event supporting the amazing array of incredible
gin distillers in New Zealand.

In 2018 the Curiosity and Ilam Homestead teams joined forces and created Gindulgence, New Zealand's boutique gin experience. With its beginnings in Christchurch, the aim was to support the burgeoning gin industry and growing number of distillers in New Zealand.

The 2024/25 festival season will see us in four locations around New Zealand.

For gin lovers it means a day to delight in gin tastings, explore the craft and flavours of different botanicals, chat with the distillers, indulge in some fresh and exciting cocktails and take home a bottle or two of your favourites at the end of the day.

It's a fabulously relaxing day out celebrating all things gin!
