We're creating an award-winning global buzz
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 orris. These aromatic natural components add true value in producing our fine New Zealand-made gin.
Our obsessive gin distiller Andy, can be seen hand-crushing 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.
However, these botanicals that we celebrate at Humdinger, would not be possible without the humble worker bee. Those buzzy little guys who begin nature’s cycle. Bees are vital to pollinate the food we need to survive. They pollinate many of the trees and flowers that provide habitats for wildlife and also contribute to the seeds, herbs, roots, and fruits that we harvest and infuse into our ‘humdinger’ of a Gin.
We recognise the brilliance of the humble bee and have chosen to salute the many wonderful attributes of the bee on all of our Humdinger Branding.
Humdinger Gin - Quality First
Gin is back! 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 the water quality. New Zealand works hard at protecting its water quality and it shows just how good it is in a Humdinger Gin.
One of the most versatile spirits is Gin. The diversity of gins makes tasting each one more intriguing for gin lovers. Our Humdinger’s Gin Distillery is producing award-winning gin that can match any international brand for sip-ability and can be used in a very wide range of cocktails.
Obsessive passion, research, and development are the ingredients for our successful New Zealand gin. Sourcing our botanicals from a specialist UK spice trader, diffusing our gins not just with flavour, but also with history and culture from around the world.

Rather than producing gin from a sterile factory, we chose the disused site of what was a bustling garage workshop. We could see the building has great bones and with a lot of cleaning and redevelopment this site has now been repurposed as a gin distillery that is handily located right in the heart of Geraldine, which has a great community vibe with like-minded local businesses surrounding us.
