Otago’s hidden gem: Lammermoor Distillery

In the Otago countryside sits a family-owned distillery crafting gin and whisky with uniquely Kiwi flavours.

Local farmers John and Susie Elliot distill delicious spirits, and have also created the perfect distillery experience. Lammermoor Distillery offers affordable tasting tours and on-site glamping with magnificent views of the countryside, making for a perfect gift, trip or stop-off on any journey to Central Otago.

Dive into the world of distilling and experience the rarity of entirely on-site whisky and gin production.

From paddock to bottle, the distillery grows and makes everything from grain to malt, before fermenting, distilling and maturing its spirits on-site. The harsh climatic conditions allow a completely natural ageing process, developing crisp, delicious tasting spirits.

With an almost non-existent carbon footprint, the Elliot family is proud to ethically produce New Zealand spirits. Visit, wake up in their on-site glamping accommodation and take in the stunning views and Otago air before enjoying a tour.

Susie says the area is “remote but fantastic” and the rich history, passion for distilling and purely delicious creations are a must-do on any Kiwi’s travel bucket list.
