Rifters Gin is a rising star in the booming world of the New Zealand premium gin game. Their Original Dry gin is an absolutely perfect example of what can result from combining the best ingredients and water our planet has to offer, with a serious amount of talent and hard work.
Started in Arrowtown by a couple of avid-gin drinking, kiwi builders. One day in the workshop, they decided they might have a nudge at creating their own gin. After a few years and a whole lot of trialling, they've nailed it beyond belief.
A "Rifter" is a term to describe a forager from the early gold mining era, specifically in reference to those who explored the rifts around the hills of Arrowtown, searching for that elusive nugget. After a hard day on the hunt, whether gold was secured or not, a gin was always found in their hands.
The distillery writes "An enhanced dry gin full of botanical flavour, pure, clean and balanced. Made to be enjoyed in good company."
