Chris and Elliot spent the good part of 18 months searching for the perfect oak aged Caribbean rum. Many taste tests were conducted with friends and family before finally settling on their first cask. It was an exciting day when the rum had landed. They then started tinkering spicing the rum right here in New Zealand, blending the rich history of the Caribbean with the adventurous spirit of New Zealand.
Blush was brought to life by two passionate wine, spirit and food lovers, Elliot and Chris.
Elliot, is the Passionate Restauranteur. He loves to experiment with all sorts of spirit infusions and concoctions. Chris, is the Engineering Professional that spent ten years in London running pubs, falling in love with hospitality industry. Elliot and Chris’s vision for Blush is simple, they want to change the perception of Gin away from the mother’s ruin to something that is lively and pleasant and can be enjoyed over Ice.
Their first gin was a beautiful Rhubarb gin made in true Kiwi style in a 500ml jam jar, thankfully their batches are slightly larger today. Some suggested they should make vodka, so they crafted a mouth-watering honey infused vodka. They then released a second gin, infused with Boysenberries, which happened to be the first boysenberry gin in the world!
