The Rogue Society Distilling Co
The Rogue Society Distilling Co are pioneering the world of distilling down under. Where the UK, USA and Spain have seen a huge resurgence in gin distilling in recent years, the Southern hemisphere has been slower to adopt the spirit. Daniel Mclaughlin, Mark Neal and Richard Bourke, gin fans from New Zealand, set out to rectify this situation.
The trio brought on board Master Distiller John Fitzpatrick, and worked with him in his distillery in the New Zealand Southern Alps, chosen for its pure glacial water source, using a 19th century John Dore copper pot still to properly represent New Zealand on the world's gin stage.
