Stay in High Spirits

Hastings Distillers East Block 200 Gin - This is our go-to gin for all occasions at the moment. Hastings Distillers are New Zealand’s first producer of certified organic artisan spirits and liqueurs. East Block 200 is a bold and aromatic gin containing 10 organic botanicals, of which 9 are from Hawkes Bay. 

Terra Sancta Aperitivo Botanical Spritz - If you want to support local this summer, start making your spritz this beauty - a good splash of this mixed with half a cup of white fizz makes for a lovely start to an evening. 


We’d also like to recommend something for our friends and family that don’t drink alcohol. A lot of these people endure being offered orange juice at 8pm on Christmas Eve or have to BYO. We don’t hesitate to turn up with a good bottle of wine at this time of year and we don’t think those who don’t drink alcohol should miss out on a special seasonal drink. That’s why we’re delighted to be stocking Non. Non is a zero-alcohol wine alternative made in Australia by ex-noma chef, William Wade. It comes in three varieties: Salted Raspberry & Chamomile, Caramelised Pear & Kombu and Toasted Cinnamon & Yuzu.
