Drawing inspiration from the stunning landscapes surrounding the distillery, Sandymount creates premium spirits using locally-sourced, environmentally-friendly ingredients. A beacon of sustainability, the distillery proudly operates as New Zealand's first and only certified carbon-zero distillery, powered by a newly-installed solar array boasting 20 panels.

Introducing Tī Kōuka Forest Gin: A Tribute to Nature's Bounty

In the heart of Sandymount's creations is the exquisite Tī Kōuka Forest Gin. This masterpiece pays homage to the native flora, meticulously foraged from the distillery's surroundings. Infused with botanicals like Kawakawa, Horopito, Tarata, Ti Kouka bark, Harakeke seed, and Manuka, this gin captures New Zealand's vibrant essence. With warm juniper notes, underlying earthiness, and a refreshing pine freshness, Tī Kōuka Forest Gin presents a herbaceous and classic flavor profile. Every sip is a tribute to the land, as 100% of the gin's proceeds go back into the noble cause of replanting native species.
