Premium New Zealand barley-distilled Gin and Vodka

Welcome to the world's smallest commercial distillery. Each batch of Vicar's Son single malt spirits is hand crafted by us from grain to glass and has a maximum of nine bottles. We zealously control every step of the distilling process to create completely natural gin and vodka. Kiwi ingenuity and Swiss attention to detail!

From Grain to Glass right here in New Zealand

Our goal is simply to produce the highest quality small batch gin and vodka possible.

We undertake the entire distilling process beginning with sourcing the Barley from Gladfield Malt in Canterbury through to cutting the final spirits with  Antipodes water. Each bottle of gin is distilled with 15 botannicals which are sourced locally and internationally. To help ensure the highest quality we only produce very small numbers – each batch is a maximum of nine bottles.

That’s why we sell by the batch, because of the hand-crafted nature of what we do each batch of Gin and Vodka is slightly different. You get to choose your preferred characteristics.

We are also keen on waste minimalisation - the nutrients and spent barley from the fermentation process get fed to either our lemon and lime trees or to the sheep and chicken at a mate’s place. All water used for cooling the stills is reused for watering the garden - no waste leaves the property. You can also reuse your bottle and box by using our refilling program and further minimise waste.

Each Premium Bottle of Spirits is delivered in a custom designed presentation box which makes our Spirits suitable as a gift or for a special occasion.

If you are making a G&T with our Gin please always mix with a quality tonic, we recommend and use Fever Tree Natural Light


I selected your Gin because of the flavour profile, smoothness and the story that goes with it.

Amazing Juniper Vodka, so smooth! This is something really special. You are an artist.


Your Gin tastes like a forest! It smells beautiful and is so smooth. I have been sipping it with ice.


Mate, this is a nice Gin! Well done to you guys!


I was gifted a bottle of this most delicious gin & was SO impressed. The complexity of flavour is perfect & allows the delicate botanicals to shine through the taste buds in the most refreshing way. Beautiful boutique liquor as it should be.
