NZ Whale and Dolphin Partnership
We named our first gin series Hector’s after the Hector’s Dolphins that habitat in and around Banks Peninsula. These endangered dolphins are as native to New Zealand as the Kiwi. About 1,000 live around the Peninsula and they can easily be seen on one of the many tourist boat offerings available in Akaroa.
We are proud to partner with the New Zealand Whale and Dolphin Trust and for every bottle of Hector’s Gin sold out of the Akaroa Craft Distillery Tasting House, we donate a portion of sale proceeds back to the trust to aid with their continuing good work in the conservation and preservation of wildlife in Banks Peninsula.
It is our way of giving back and to help preserve the beauty of this place for future generations.
