Welcome to
Cardrona Distillery

Creating the finest spirits with pure alpine water sourced from the heart of Mount Cardrona, from New Zealand’s Southern Alps, and locally foraged seasonal ingredients to produce an unparalleled signature taste.

From grain to glass

Every aspect of Cardrona’s products is of the highest quality, from the pure Cardrona Valley Alpine water, the rich malted barley and the foraged ingredients to the handpicked oak casks from Spain, America and Central Otago.

The Distillery

Our products

Cardrona proudly distils four artisan spirits from grain to glass – The Cardrona Single Malt Whisky, The Source Gin (awarded Gold at the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition), ‘the reid’ Single Malt Vodka, rich and character filled, and Rose Rabbit liqueurs which marry Cardrona Single Malt Spirit with New Zealand oranges, elderflower and fruits resulting in a delectably powerful range of sipping liqueurs.
