Lammermoor Whisky & Gin Distillery are proudly family owned. A unique farm distillery handcrafting New Zealand Whisky & Gin from paddock to bottle, from grain to glass. One of few distilleries to grow their own grain, malt, mash, ferment, distill and mature on site.Read Our Story
Welcome to Special Reserve , Single Malt Whisky!
Our whisky begins with natural spring water sourced from right here on Lammermoor Station.
Our home grown Organic Barley is also used in our Whisky.
Our whisky is aged in locally sourced Central Otago Pinot Barrels which are made of French oak!
Our climatic conditions are dramatic and this encourages Whisky to breath in the wood depending on the weather! On a hot day the wood expands allowing the whisky to breathe more, whilst on a cold day it contracts. This all helps in the ageing process of our whisky!
This Whisky has fabulous colour and maturity for its youthfulness, but our extreme hot and cold climate accentuate and in fact accelerate these complex processes.
Once again this is a limited bottling!
All bottles are individually numbered!
NOSE - hints of sweet caramel with hints of toffee in a lightly peaty fruity surround!
TASTE- smooth and sweet up front with hints of caramels building across the palette to release a fruity luscious lightly peated malt!
Relinquished “spring laden” water, high on the Lammermoor’s,
Begins its profound journey, to the valley floor’s,
Cascading Aqua tumbles through “silver tussocks” and matagouri,
“Brookside burn”, has the rightful contour to carry,
The crystal clear liquid enters the Distillery of sort
Nearly captured, but never caught,
Consummated marriage, with Barley and yeast,
Commences its process, to tame this beast,
Distilling the amber spirit awakens each dawn
“Water of life” is soon to be born,
Port bloodied barrels, steadfast in anticipation,
The “new make” inaugurates its maturation.
Climatic seasons unfold, yielding the aromatic flavor,
Judicious connoisseurs, gratefully savor
Unleashed and enjoyed, the golden glow is set free
Lammermoor Whisky, distilled illegally, since 1863
A selection of hand crafted artisan gins distilled right here in Central Otago, New Zealand.
GIN & BARE IT
Embrace “Gin and Bare it” if you dare,
Seductively enjoy flavours to share.
Uncloaked Botanicals yielding their aromas of measure,
Married together with passion and pleasure.
Lovingly “distilled” caressing essences to desire,
Captivating congenial zests that we love to require.
Junipers, corianders and many more spices anticipate their plan,
While Central Otago’s Thyme “waits for no man”.
Unbridle your palate to taste the “Bare Gin”,
Perceptive inhibitions will be laid within.

"I just wanted to say how much our group enjoyed visiting the Distillery last weekend. The drive to Lammermoor Station was just amazing for a start and then to hear of the road you have travelled to get the Distillery up and running was quite incredible. Even the non spirit drinkers enjoyed the opportunity to have a taste and as one who enjoys gin I have tucked my bottle away until Christmas. We all loved the story of Gin and Bare it.
Best wishes for your venture and when the opportunity arises we will be back, Hopefully when the peonies and roses are in bloom."
