Humdinger won two silver medals in the London Spirits Competition, 2021; two bronzes in the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC), 2021; and in the New Zealand Spirits Awards, 2021, for Dry Gin in the Gin Category, a gold medal.
Andrew says paramount to the brand is that people know exactly what goes into each bottle. “We have big glass doors at the distillery, so visitors can see everything. The truly natural botanicals are on display. We’re fully transparent in everything we do.”
Andrew and Saskia never forget those championing them either.
“The support from locals, friends and family means we can run the still frequently, which enables us to really refine our recipe, the process and equipment, to the point where our gins are consistently winning awards. Without that tremendous support, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
Visitors can sample Humdinger Gin at 3a Talbot Street, Geraldine.
