Juno Extra Fine has won eight national and international medals, and our Summer 19 and Spring 20 Seasonal Gins have won Gold medals (actually all of the 2020 Seasonal gins are medal winners!) But, if your palate is king, then choose one that suits your style – citrus, spicy, herbaceous, woody, floral. The choice is wide and may depend on the occasion and how you would like to drink the gin.
Well, technically speaking, all our gin comes to you fresh from our New Plymouth distillery. However, if you’re in the region and you are looking for more of an old-fashioned face-to-face gin purchase, our cellar door is open from 10am through to 5pm most days, so pop in for a visit!
Please be aware that weekend availability is currently limited so it is best to make a booking to avoid any disappointment.
The EU definition of gin describes it as a clear neutral spirit of agricultural origin, predominantly flavoured with juniper, and having an alcohol by volume (abv) of 37.5% – 45%. Juno Gin ranges between 40% abv and 44% abv, with a 55% barrel-aged and a 55% Navy Strength available.
Technically all gin should be gluten-free as gluten is not carried across from the original fermented product during distillation. But if you want to be extra sure, then choose a gin where the base alcohol is made from lactose as opposed to a grain. Juno Gins are all gluten-free!
The base alcohol for gin is a neutral spirit of agricultural origin. This includes any of grains, vegetable, fruit and lactose. These are fermented (by yeast) and the alcohol produced is then distilled. At Juno Gin, the base alcohol is made from lactose.
We are currently working with Massey University to develop a Juniper industry, and we anticipate that in 2021 we will be looking for potential Juniper growers. We are still at the propagation-stage in 2020. For the other botanicals, we are always interested in a conversation. Please do contact us through the Contact page.
Unfortunately, not at this stage. As a company, we are required to have an importing agent (to pay the Excise duty). If you liaise with a friend, they would be able to mail it you as a private individual.
For the North Island, Monday – Thursday orders placed before 4pm usually arrive the next day.
For the South Island and for rural deliveries, add an extra 24 hours.
Please note, all of the courier companies are experiencing extra peak pressure (e.g. Christmas, post-lockdown etc) so deliveries can take longer. We do have tracking numbers and our courier broker (Zend) are very happy to respond to enquiries about delivery status.
