A brief introduction to Pōkeno, New Zealand

Nestling in a warm, misty, humid valley with the surrounding volcanic hills providing all the pure, natural spring water they could need, is the state-of-the-art Pōkeno distillery. Batch production, long fermentation, slow distillation and long rests to regenerate the copper are just a few of the things that allow the team to experiment - they even have their open cooperage! Combined, these things allow them to control the process from end to end - resulting in the sweet, smooth single malts with exceptional body & flavour that capture the pure spirit of Aotearoa, New Zealand.  We're excited to have them as part of our Official Distillery Partner offering as of today - why not check out more on our website here >
