What you can expect

Imagine sipping gin in a dreamy alpine postcard setting. Join New Zealand's first gin tour from Queenstown and you can make it a reality with visits to three incredible cellar doors in Cardrona Valley, Arrowtown and Arthurs Point in the famous Central Otago region.

Known for its cool climate wines and more recently craft beer, the gin industry in Central Otago is now booming. On this 6 hour gin experience from Queenstown, discover a range of smooth gins as you visit the Cardrona Distillery for a full sensory tour of the facilities and guided tasting in the private tasting room.

The tour continues with a scenic drive to the historic gold mining town of Arrowtown to visit ‘The Winery’ for a self-guided gin tasting paddle and shared grazing cheeseboard. The final stop of the day is the Gin Garden by Broken Heart Spirits for a hosted tasting of the local Broken Hearts gin range. Combining sightseeing, delicious food and refreshing gins – this tour has something for everyone.
