The Reid brothers - with backgrounds in engineering and wine making, have found something new to set their curious minds to - the distillation of fine gin.
The Reid + Reid gins have the usual botanicals - coriander, juniper and lemons, but it's the addition of unique New Zealand botanicals that make it special.
Martinborough brothers, Stew and Chris Reid take their signature Reid + Reid Native Gin, which uses three native botanicals, kawakawa, manuka and horopito, and age it for three months in Martinborough pinot noir French oak barrels.
Not only is this gin truly reflective of the region it is produced in, but it challenges your perception of what gin can be.
Red currants, juniper and savoury oak flavours combine with light, peppery floral spices on the palate, followed by a sweet red fruit finish.
