"Rifter is much like that of a forager or a fossicker from the early gold mining era; they explored the rifts around the hills of Arrowtown, searching for that elusive nugget. At the end of a long day, a refreshing gin was always welcomed." Rifters

"Rifters is a small batch boutique gin. Handcrafted in New Zealand using flavourful botanicals and pure New Zealand artesian water. Made to be enjoyed in good company.

The Land - The mountains, lakes and rivers that surround us have captured our imagination for years. They provide the purest ingredients used to make our gin. They also provide a place for us, locals and visitors to explore, discover and play.

Our People - Rifters was started by a couple of kiwi builders who are pretty fond of gin. One day in the workshop, they decided they might have a nudge at creating their own. A couple of years later and a whole lot of trial, they figured things out.


Care For Our Land - The land is a pretty good mate of ours and provides us with all sorts of good things day to day. We do our bit to ensure we leave it in good shape for future generations.

Yarn - We’re pretty fond of yarning, so give us a tingle and say hello anytime – ideally at a reasonable time of day. Cheers.

Get Immersed - There’s nothing quite like being immersed in the thick of life.

Enjoy It - We enjoy the work we do and drinking our gin with friends and family. We hope you do too!


The land that surrounds us here in Arrowtown, and the greater Central Otago region, plays a huge role in our operations. It provides some of the best water in the country, a selection of unique botanicals and an enjoyable environment for us, the greater community and visitors from all over the world. We are constantly searching and implementing ways to improve the sustainability of our business:

Become Single Use Plastic Free - We made a decision early to become a single use plastic free company. We work closely with our suppliers to eliminate single use plastic from the packaging and products we use.

Water-based Inks - The inks used to print our boxes are water-based, minimising toxins and other harmful stuff.

20% + Recycled Glass - Currently, our bottles are produced using 20% + recycled glass. Our goal is to get this to 60% + by 2022.

Recyclable - We focus on using recycled products and processes, to minimise and eliminate non-biodegradable landfill waste."
