National Distillery Company was founded by Blair and Ricardo, two friends with a shared passion for creating the finest New Zealand spirits. With their extensive bartending experience, they understood that the best beverages tell stories about their ingredients, process, place, and people.

Housed in the iconic National Tobacco Company building in Napier, the National Distillery Company uses state-of-the-art copper stills to distill gin, vodka, rum, and whisky. They source the highest quality ingredients from around New Zealand and the world, hand-selecting and blending to create spirits that tell captivating stories.

With the stunning golden woman artwork on the label and flavors of orange, lemon, and lime, this gin is a tribute to the city's architectural gems. The company generously donates 15% of Art Deco Gin sales to the Art Deco Trust, supporting the preservation of Napier's stunning heritage buildings.
