French Farm Petit Pinot
Named for the Hector’s dolphins that swim off Akaroa, Hector’s Gin comes in flavour profiles foraged from Banks Peninsula.
Pinot Noir from vines in French Peak Vineyard, syrah, kelp, thyme, lavender and lemon myrtle gathered by local foragers are blended with classic botanicals to create a vibrant yet velvety smooth ruby red gin with notes of a fruit forward pinot noir. Bright, silky and elegant with a dash of spice. The addition of Waiheke Island Syrah adds a tannic structure to the gin while maintaining a slight sweetness on the front palate.
We are delighted to announce a partnership with the New Zealand Whale and Dolphin Trust. The trust is a world-class, research driven organisation who are totally committed to the conservation of New Zealand’s whales and dolphins. Their research includes population surveys, studies of whale and dolphin reproduction, survival and human impacts.
We are proud to be giving back to the conservation of the Hector’s dolphins by donating a portion of our Hector’s Gin sale proceeds from our Tasting House to the New Zealand Whale and Dolphin Trust to aid their continuing good work with the preservation of our Hector’s dolphin friends.
