Waitoki Washhouse Rhubarb Gin 700ml

$78.95

The name Washhouse Distillery is a nod to where it all began - a backyard laundry - and the home of Waitoki's very own gin. It started with three neighbours, living in a quiet cul-de-sac joined forces to make vodka in their laundry. Several failures and many batches later they began to combine science and art, and detail everything they were doing - all the while improving the quality of the vodka using a simple reflux still. And this continues today - the neighbours meeting up in the laundry, distilling vodka. It wasn't enough to quell the curiosity of one, and Steve went onto attend distilling courses and explore different botanicals.

In 2019 he purchased a beautiful handmade alquitar copper still, to which all our recipes are developed today. His ultimate goal was really to make good tasting gin which was an enjoyment to make and to drink - and without pretence. Along the way the family joined the journey and every part of the Washhouse Distillery is handled by us.

 Waitoki Washhouse Rhubarb Gin is small-batch distilled in the distillery's handmade copper still, bringing together a blend of traditional and New Zealand native botanicals. Combines traditional botanicals of Juniper, Coriander and Angelica Root, along with the citrus explosion from locally grown grapefruit & orange. After distillation, the original Waitoki Washhouse Gin recipe is steeped with fresh, locally grown rhubarb for a sweet, but decadent, fruity finish.

On the tongue, a fresh peppery spice from Kawakawa & Horopito, and a sweet but tart smooth finish on the original recipe from fresh rhubarb. Best enjoyed with the neighbours.
