The palate begins with notes of candied orange, apricot, and honey comb, leading to a dry, peppery finish with hints of lemon and pips.

Over 10 years, using just 3 ingredients, the Waiheke Whisky team have produced award winning whisky from beautiful Waiheke Island. 

THE BREWER

The Waiheke Whisky Distillery truly came to life in 2010, thanks to the invaluable guidance of Tony Denny. As the former chief brewer for Lion Nathan, Tony brought with him a wealth of expertise, teaching the Waiheke Whisky team the art of mashing and the secrets to a perfect ferment. Having Tony on the team has been an extraordinary stroke of luck, and his influence continues to inspire the team every day. 

THE BEEKEEPER

Meet Richard Evatt, Waiheke Whisky's dedicated beekeeper and production manager, who dives into his work with enthusiasm, like raking a mash with passion. Richard and Mark embarked on the Waiheke Whisky journey together, infusing the process with practicality and a profound love for nature. Richard's touch adds a special sweetness to everything they do. 

THE ENGINEER

Eric joined the Waiheke Whisky adventure in a moment of serendipity, over a fireside chat about crafting whisky. With a mind that dances between Newton’s principles and Crowley’s mysticism, Eric’s innovative ideas on distillation and design have shaped Waiheke Whisky stills and, ultimately, their distinctive character.

THE STILLMAN

Calling Paddy Newton merely the stillman is an understatement. As a multiple Winemaker of the Year awardee, he is a virtuoso of fermentation and flavour, as well as a forklift maestro. Paddy ensures daily production runs smoothly and maintains impeccable quality control.

THE DREAMERS

Mark always envisioned a distillery on Waiheke, a place to share with friends and create memories. With Ro's unwavering support, that dream has blossomed into a vibrant reality, filling their lives with joy and endless possibilities.
