the process

how we make our whisky

Making whisky by the sea from fresh, salty rainwater, combined with organic Canterbury Malted Barley, gives us our unique taste profile. If you like salinity and seaweed with sweet nuts and cigar smoke with a toffee or two, you're in the right place. Our Island is our biggest ally. 

cask selection and maturation

Traditional ex Bourbon casks rub shoulders with Chardonnay and Syrah ex wine barrels. Learn about our wood philosophy and experimentation.

We come from an island
walk on the sky, the ocean above
lends its briny tang to sleeping casks

They age in dog years
peat-touched spirit breathing life
into the new world whisky fabric

Our horizon glows copper
distilling the past and the future
We Are Waiheke Whisky
