Collection: REEFTON DISTILLERY CO.

Reefton is a modern distillery in an age-old town. They take their inspiration from Reefton’s rich history of adventure, innovation and gold to create a range of small batch premium distilled spirits with a distinct West Coast flavour. Founder and CEO Patsy Bass was born and grew up in Reefton, she remembers the simplicity of life on the West Coast, picking fruit in the garden, riding horses and sipping on milkshakes at the milk bar. Her love of the region has been a constant and decades later when Patsy’s work as a project manager saw her return home, she began to look for ways that she could contribute to the revitalisation of her home town. Having spent her early years living on the site of the Westland Brewery, establishing a distillery was a natural step. Patsy and her team see Reefton as the perfect place for making fresh, handcrafted spirits, with its plentiful supplies of rainfall, spring water from pristine sources and lush rainforests full of key botanical ingredients.

Reefton have drawn on local characters of old to build their brands, their Little Biddy Gin range pays homage to Reefton legend Bridget “Biddy” Goodwin a pipe smoking, gin-toting, 4ft tall female gold prospector. Making a commitment to use as much locally foraged ingredients as possible, their search for native botanicals takes them deep into the West Coast rainforest where Biddy once fossicked for gold. Once collected, the fresh botanicals are sorted, rinsed and then introduced to old world classic botanicals such as juniper, lemon peel, angelica, etc. before being vapour infused into spirit to become Little Biddy Gin. Horopito, Kahikatea, Rimu, Tarata, Toatoa, Watercress and Snow moss each contribute to that distinct West Coast flavour. Head Distiller Nick Secker fondly recalls “One of my clearest memories is of the first full production run, walking in and tasting the rainforest coming out of the still - it is something that I will never forget.” View the full range below
