Dancing Sands Distillery

Distillery in Takaka

Here's a surprise – an award-winning distillery tucked down a laneway off Takaka's main street. Its Sacred Spring gin is crafted from water from the same aquifer that feeds the pristine waters of the nearby Pupū Springs, and variations include NZ's first barrel-aged gin, and gin flavoured with chocolate or saffron. Other standout Dancing Sands tipples include rum and vodka.
