Welcome to our new boutique distillery, where craftsmanship, sustainability, superb ingredients and natural beauty converge to create an unforgettable gin experience. Nestled just 30 minutes from the vibrant heart of Auckland City, our idyllic small farm is home to something truly special- welcome to Little Lottie, our new commercial 150-litre gin still.

The Artistry of Little Lottie

Little Lottie is not just any still; it's a masterpiece of quality, precision, innovation and sustainable operations. Crafted from the finest copper and stainless steel, this remarkable still embodies the essence of our commitment to excellence. Little Lottie was designed with small batch distilling in mind. At circa 200 bottles per run, you can be assured that every batch is carefully prepared and managed.

We take pride in using key botanicals and ingredients sourced right from our farm to infuse every bottle of gin with the essence of Lavender Hill. It's a farm-to-glass journey that elevates our spirits to a level of quality and flavour that's truly unique.
