About Us

Aurora Distillery produces small batches of craft gin and liqueurs. We are in Maungaraki, nestled in the Western Hills around Wellington, New Zealand. Our team is Mark and Caroline – but we are helped from time to time by various friends and family. Mark is the Duty Manager.

We love making gin – the smells, the warmth, choosing the botanicals. It’s a wonderful blend of science and art. We want to share that experience.

So we set up our distillery with the aims of making great gin and helping other people do it too. We run sessions for up to eight people where we will take you through the process and help you make your own bottle of delicious gin. read more about it on the Gin Experience page.
