Gin, chocolate, peanut butter and movies......
Published 18 Dec 2019
Wow, pretty busy week last week with three tours. Two brewery tours and our artisan tour or, "Craftisan Tour", as we call it. This tour combines, peanut butter tasting at Fix & Fogg, then chocolate tasting with the awesome team at the Wellington Chocolate Factory, up to Mt Victoria to take in the 360 degree views of Wellington, a visit to Weta Cave for a 25 minute documentary on the amazing TV & Film projects they have worked on including Avatar and Lord of the Rings, then finally.......what better way to end the tour with some very fine gin tasting at Southward Distilling on Cuba Street while owner/distiller Frankie tells not just the story of gin, but her own personal story too.
Nina and Lukas from Stuttgart joined us on our journey through Wellington's artisan community. Both big Lord of the Rings fans, they really enjoyed the Weta Cave visit but highlight by far......Frankies gin at Southward Distilling. "Cin-cin".
