Humdinger Citrus Gin

A vibrant burst of Gisborne citrus leads into a subtle juniper body, rounded off with a warm ginger finish.

This is clean, crisp, and unmistakably a contemporary gin.

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.

Botanical Gin

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.

    Quality First

    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.

    The Distillery

    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.

    “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.”
