This 6-hour gin experience departs Queenstown daily at 12:15pm and returns at 6:30pm. You will be picked up from your accommodation by our heli partner and transported to their heli base in Frankton where after a safety briefing you will be whisked away on a 15-minute scenic flight to Mt Sale located in the Cardrona Valley. Here your pilot will open the hatch, present and pour your first gin of the day. This location on the mountain top provides privacy and panoramic views, a truly remarkable experience and a great way to kick off your afternoon. You will then be transported by helicopter to the Cardrona Distillery, landing right inside the grounds out the front of the property. Here you will meet your gin guide and be taken through a full sensory, tactile tour of the facilities including gin tastings and drinks in the private tasting room.

Your next stop is an easy drive down the Crown Range into the historic gold mining town of Arrowtown where we visit a wonderful cellar door experience where you will have a self-guided experience being able to use the knowledge you have just gained to enjoy your gin tasting paddle along with shared grazing boards. 

The last stop is a 15-minute journey to Arthurs Point where we visit the “Gin Garden by Broken Heart Gin”. Here you will be guided through a range of local Broken Heart gins in a private room with traditional German pizza to share.

This gin experience has been designed to be a nice mix of education, sightseeing and fun. It is perfect for all types of people and there is some flexibility to try other spirits such as vodka, bourbon, whiskey and local wines throughout if you want to balance or restrict your gin intake.
