Sea kelp is the main botanical in our Hector’s Long Harbour Ocean Wash Gin. Our kelp is sustainably sourced and managed from NZ Kelp under New Zealand’s world renown Quota Management System. Certified organic with AsureQuality, NZ Kelp is freshly hand gathered from the ocean. Nothing is added and only water is removed through air drying and gentle dehumidification. Every piece of NZ Kelp can be traced back to the area it was harvested from. The addition of kelp in our gin adds a beautiful minerality and umami soy flavour resulting in a silky smooth finish.
