Fenton Street Distillery Gin is hand-crafted in genuinely small batches. No rigid timings, no automatic cuts, their stills don’t have nick names, their recycled bottles aren’t uniform, the labels aren’t machine applied, and they are not after accolades or awards -because the journey and the people that come for the ride are their reward. It is their craft; it’s not unique but they just have a flair and passion for making great Gin.
The Vintner is bottled at 46% ABV having rested on oak staves that were immersed in red wine for 24 months. The pepper and spice from the traditional botanicals and Horopito, Kawakawa and Tarata are beautifully complimented by the oak and the tannins from the red wine - all gently touched by the hint of honey. Hard not to marvel at the craft!
