A MODERN DISTILLERY FROM AN AGE OLD TOWN
Reefton Distilling Co. is a modern distillery at the forefront of spirit production in New Zealand. Our distillery is housed in one of Reefton’s original buildings which has been carefully restored to accommodate our working distillery, tasting bar and retail store.
The Reefton Distilling Co. team are inspired to provide you with a truly unique West Coast experience; as they share the story behind the crafting of their local botanical gins, fruit liqueurs, vodka and whiskies.
Created in honour of Reefton legend Little Biddy, a pipe-smoking, gin-toting, 4 foot tall gold prospector. Our search for native botanicals takes us deep into the same West Coast rainforest where Biddy once fossicked for gold, to craft a uniquely New Zealand selection of small batch distilled gins with attitude. Like its namesake, Little Little Biddy® Gin, is robust and hardworking with a striking aromatic bite. Native Toatoa endures the harshest winter conditions without losing its fresh, vibrant tannic character. Blended with elusive Tarata, Horopito, Rimu, and majestic Douglas fir, this is a versatile and easy drinking gin with a complex palette of spiced citrus and warm resin.
