LIGHTHOUSE

The Lighthouse brand was inspired by the spectacular Cape Palliser Lighthouse at the southernmost tip of the Wairarapa and the southernmost tip of the North Island of New Zealand. Greytown Fine Distillates is the brainchild of Neil Catherall, the company’s distiller and master craftsman, and Andrew Wright, a local businessman. Their vision and drive combine with the energy and enthusiasm of distiller James Graham to form the core team responsible for bringing Lighthouse Gin to you.

For Lighthouse Gin, Neil took pleasure in researching and experimenting with many botanicals, and, among those finally selected, after several years of trial, are the dried leaves from the unique New Zealand botanicals kawa kawa, together with the fresh zest of New Zealand-grown navel oranges and Yen Ben lemons, the intense-flavoured descendant of the famous Lisbon lemon. These components lend herbal and citrus notes to the gin, distinguishing it from its English and American counterparts.

INSTAGRAM LIVE | LIGHTHOUSE GIN WITH LIZ

High atop a windswept cliff at the southernmost point of the North Island the Cape Palliser Lighthouse stands lonely watch over Cook Strait. Its light has served as a waypoint for seafarers since 1897. Lighthouse Gin, inspired by the famous landmark, has similarly been lighting the way for lovers of great gin since 2005. This makes the gin a much more recent arrival than the actual lighthouse of course, but places it nevertheless in the very early days of New Zealand’s obsession with craft gins. Join Liz LIVE for a tasting of Lighthouse fabulous hand-crafted gins. She'll be tasting both the Small Batch and Hawthorn Edition gins.
