Gin Tour

Welcome to NZ’s first gin tour. In the 1980’s it was wine, then craft beer and now the gin-dustry is making its mark in Central Otago - let us take you on a journey into the world of gin.

This 6 hour gin experience departs Queenstown daily at 1pm and returns at 7pm. You will be picked up from your accommodation in one of our Mercedes vehicles by your guide and transported in luxury to our first location, the Cardrona Distillery. This beautiful distillery is located a few minutes past the famous Cardrona Pub and opposite the entrance to the Cardrona ski field. Here you will be taken through a full sensory, tactile tour of the facilities including gin & spirits tastings in the private tasting room.

Your next stop is an easy drive down the Crown Range into Arrowtown, to visit a wonderful cellar door experience called ‘The Winery’ where you will have a self guided experience, using the knowledge you have just gained to select your gin tasting paddle along with shared grazing boards. There will be time here for you to buy an additional drink, whether that be gin, wine, cocktail, beer or other. This location has the largest range of wines in all of Queenstown and is a delight to walk through and explore.

The last stop is a 15 minute journey to Arthurs Point where we visit the “Gin Garden by Broken Heart Spirits”. Here you will be guided through a range of local Broken Heart gins in a private room with traditional German Tarte Flambee to share.

This gin experience has been designed to be a nice mix of education, sightseeing and fun. It is perfect for couples, groups and there is some flexibility to try other spirits such as vodka, whiskey and of course wines throughout if you want to balance or restrict your gin intake.

Join the Gin revolution with Altitude Tours!
