Papaiti Gin Distillery

Whanganui Tours


Award-winning gin, artisan distilled in Whanganui.

Ever thought about making your own gin? Here's your opportunity: take a peak behind the scenes of Whanganui's first Craft Gin Distillery and learn everything there is about botanicals, distilling and, of course, crafting gin.

This is as hands-on as it gets: you'll be introduced to a wide range of botanicals (and can even bring your own, if you have a special flavour in mind), pick your own mix and learn how to use a 5l copper still. And yes, you definitely get to take home your very own bottle of gin. Our master distiller Adrian will guide you through the whole process.
