Reid + Reid Barrel Aged Gin combines two great aspects of the Wairarapa: native bush and pinot noir. Distillers and brothers Stew and Chris Reid take Reid + Reid Native Gin, which uses three native botanicals (kawakawa, manuka and horopito), and age it for three months in ex-Martinborough pinot noir French oak barrels. Not only is this gin truly reflective of the region it is produced in, but it challenges your perception of what gin can be.
Tasting Notes: Red currants, juniper and savoury oak. Light, peppery and floral spice on the palate followed by a sweet red fruit finish. (Producers notes)
