The Humdinger Way
The term ‘natural’ is often overused, its real meaning obscured and diluted by hackneyed hype and folk jumping on the bandwagon. For the team here at Humdinger Gin, a natural product has to be something genuinely recognisable in nature – the seed of coriander, a juniper berry, the root of ginger. These aromatic natural components add true value in producing our fine New Zealand-made gin.
Our obsessive gin distiller Andy, can be seen hand-preparing all these aromatic botanicals to release the natural flavours slowly into each small batch of handcrafted Humdinger Gin. Attention to detail and honest naturally sourced ingredients is what sets a Humdinger Gin apart from the masses.
Obsessive passion, research, and development are the ingredients for our successful New Zealand gin. Sourcing our botanicals both locally and from from a specialist UK spice trader, diffusing our gins not just with flavour, but also with history and culture from around the world.
We proudly use only natural botanicals in our gins, consciously chosen for their character and flavour.
Depending where each botanical is grown they have very different aromas and flavours too, so we have sampled botanicals from all over the world and found the best of the best.

And best of all NZ Gin has made a resurgence throughout the country and the world. Why New Zealand Gin is so good comes down to our can-do attitude. New Zealanders don't rest on their laurels and always challenge the norm, which is obvious in each Humdinger Gin.

Our distillery is located in what locals call "The Old Morrison's Garage". We could see the building has great bones so the site has been affectionately repurposed as a gin distillery. Handily located right in the heart of Geraldine, there is a great community vibe shared with like-minded local businesses surrounding us.

“Called in today to see what they had to offer. Very quickly fell in love with the pink gin. Great gin for those summer holiday picnics. Other flavors of gin were also very great and highly recommend. We will deffinatly be back for more and keeping any eye for the new ranges to come. Thanks”
“I was lucky to be gifted this at Christmas. What can I say aside from it appears to have evaporated. Absolutely love it. The hint of ginger just perfect.”
“Gave this gin to my son as part of his Christmas gift and we tried later in the day.We both loved it and fought over over who should keep it.He won so Im coming to buy a bottle just for me.Great product thank you!”
“This is the second bottle we have purchased and the flavours can be seen as complex. With a fine tonic there are hints of lemon as well. A fine gin and well worth trying to add to your repertoire of fine NZ made gins. This is my top one for this season for sure.”
“I didn't get a chance to try this years batch as it was a gift for the father in law in the UK. The review back from him has been very complementary! I'll have to be more selfish next year and enjoy it myself.”
“Shared this gin with adult family and we all agreed that it was delicious. Mixer was Fever Tree tonic. So good that I ordered another bottle.”
