As a collaboration between Miss Gee’s Bar & Eatery and the upcoming gin festival, Gincredible, 50 ginthusiasts attended a special gin tasting evening sampling the quality range of gins The National Distillery Company are currently creating.

The National Distillery Company is located in a 1930’s landmark building in Ahuriri, Napier, and is fast becoming a big name in NZ’s distilled spirits. Using modern distilling techniques with time-honoured traditions, their spirits are exciting, creative and high quality. Their current range of products available to include gin, vodka, rum and whisky.

Miss Gee’s gin tasting evening gave a large group of ginthusiasts the chance to taste of the range of gins currently available including the Verdigris Copper Distilled Dry Gin, the Adorn Beauty Gin in original and limited Rosé edition and the Hemp Gin. For those who couldn’t make it, here’s a quick wrap up of each product and why you should add these to your gin collection.

Four gins were available to taste at Miss Gee's

Verdigris Copper Distilled Dry Gin

This baby is based on a classic Juniper led London dry gin but has a supporting duo of lemon peel and native NZ flax seed. Verdigris may just become your new go-to. Approachable, easy drinking and a great all-rounder to be the base of those summery cocktails.

Adorn Limited & Adorn Rosé

Not only are the bottles gorgeous, but the aromas that bounce out of the bottle on opening are so dreamy! The flavours are curated based on botanicals found in luxury skincare including organic rosehip and chamomile to produce a beautifully balanced botanical gin with hints of luscious, sweetness and a lingering, floral aroma. The limited-edition gorgeous Rosé gin gets its pretty pink colour from rose petals – definitely a bouquet of roses we’d like to receive!

Hemp Gin

Could be a popular choice this April. The National Distillery Company have added Hemp Hearts and citrus to the botanical line up of this baby to create a gin that is bursting with flavour. Amazing flavours and once again, the bottle looks stunning up on the shelf. Beginner gin drinkers might want to warm up to this one.
