This dry gin is spice forward with notes of cardamom, coriander, and peppercorns. Balanced with manuka leaves on the nose and almonds for mouthfeel, the gin is double distilled and vapour infused with 8 carefully selected botanicals. It is blended with water sourced from the aquifer that feeds the clearest spring in the world, Dancing Sands Spring.

Ben and Sarah Bonoma moved to New Zealand after falling in love over a long distance relationship and found themselves in simply the most stunning place on the planet: Golden Bay, New Zealand. They traded in their corporate careers for a still and a plan: to bring the most stunning place on the planet to the world by creating an attention grabbing range of spirits and break all of the rules in the process.

From the natural landscapes with marbled mountains to golden sandy beaches to the beautiful water, everything is a little bit better in Golden Bay. Where the aquas are more aqua and blues are more blue, even the light gives us a brighter beginning. The Dancing Sands Spring at Te Waikoropupu Springs is the clearest spring in the world, with incredible under water visibility at a crisp 11 degrees C, and the purity of the spring serves as inspiration for everything they do.

Ben and Sarah use the name Dancing Sands to remind themselves to never take for granted the gifts that nature has bestowed upon us.
