Southen Distilleries Ltd was formed by Malcolm Willmott
and Peter Wheeler to consolidate the distilling operations
of their two companies, leaders in boutique distillation
in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific for the past
Located in Timaru, South Canterbury the new distillery
complex takes over all the Hokonui Moonshine production
previously centered in Otago and combines the rum and
corn whiskey production from the North.
Our spirit range is specialised to collectors,
enthusiasts and those who just enjoy a fine spirit. While
SDL Whiskies and rums are produced in the traditional manner,
all have characters different to other distilleries and are
proudly labelled Spirit of New Zealand.
|Both the still house and cask
room are housed in century old brick buildings ideal for
moderating the -5C to +25C Canterbury climate.
While distillery tours are planned, visitors to the region
must see the Hokonui Moonshine Museum in Gore., details
are given in the Hokonui section.
Our motto is Taste and Enjoy,
so be it!
