NZ Gin – Lyttelton Distillery Company

Coming very soon (subject to licensing) and a first for Lyttelton (we suspect there may have been some in 19th century) a craft small batch distillery offering for a start Peninsula Gin and Straddle Crane vodka. Later will come brandies, schnapps and other beverages – we will be guided by what our customers want. LDC was formed in 2016 and we spent the time since in recipe testing and market research.

In November 2017 we were granted our manufacturing licence and since then we have moved in to our modest premises underneath the outdoor deck at Fat Tony’s Bar ( accessible from the carpark off Canterbury Street behind Lyttelton Coffee Company, Wunderbar and Supervalue supermarket).
