Reid & Reid gin is uniquely Kiwi, in that it is produced with three native New Zealand botanicals: kawakawa, manuka and horopito. Along with classic gin botanicals: juniper, coriander seeds, fresh orange zest, orris root, angelica root, liquorice root, cassia, nutmeg, fennel and cardamom . Reid & Reid gin is distilled in a 200 litre, custom-made copper pot still in its Martinborough distillery.
Red currants, juniper and savoury oak. Light, peppery and floral spice on the palate followed by a sweet red fruit 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.
