"Three years of recipe development have taken us on our own journey to create this gin. Packed with flavour and using a range of seasonal botanicals, along with a generous rate of junipers. This has led to a gin bursting with aromatic essential oils. Like the Kea that adorns the label - this is our bold and cheeky expression of a London Dry gin. Given the choice to tone it down, or chill filter and remove some of the essential oils, we made the choice to release a proudly cloudy gin. We believe the haze (technically known as louche) gives our gin an extra dimension of mouthfeel and complexity." Lacey & Tim, Dr Beak
"Dr Beak crafts bold but balanced premium gin that will take you on an intrepid journey, awaken your senses and expand your taste horizons.
Dr Beak is based in Martinborough and our gin is small-batch distilled at a craft distillery in Marlborough, New Zealand. With environmentalism at our core, we aim to give back while producing a premium quality gin so you can feel good with every sip. A portion of each bottle sold is gifted to protect our precious biodiversity. We rely on selected growers from within New Zealand to provide us with exceptional raw ingredients. By using botanicals grown here in New Zealand, this helps us to keep our footprint small, and of course, supports the locals. Currently, all but two of our botanicals are grown here. This gives us traceability of our ingredients straight to your glass.
The Face behind the Beak - Dr Beak gin has been lovingly crafted and developed by Lacey, along with her winemaker husband, Tim. Lacey, a mother of three, and a Health Science graduate, has been asking herself for the last ten years, “What will I do when I grow up?” She has always been passionate about making, creating, repurposing and growing. The idea to make gin was born whilst studying horticulture and came from the desire to look for a new challenge. Alongside that, came the realisation that she could grow or source all the botanicals here in New Zealand. Gin-making seemed to be the perfect bridge between science and craft. The seed was sown. This brave thinking has led to this exciting venture.
Juniper Shrubbery - We have a number of Juniperus Communis plants from which we hope to harvest the berries (they’re actually seed cones) and use in our gin. We are hugely excited by this project, as this will be one of the first Juniper shrubberies in the country. Only time will tell what these beauties will deliver us, but our goal is to achieve a single site botanical gin, with 100% of all botanicals grown on our home block in Martinborough. Watch this space!
Our sustainability promise - At Dr Beak we care deeply about the earth that our children will inherit. That’s why we only use materials and ingredients with sustainability in mind. We love this land, so a portion of each bottle sold is gifted to protect our precious biodiversity." Lacey & Tim, Dr Beak
