Cambridge Distillery is the passion project of a couple of good mates, full of good ideas. For all the grand ideas, they just want to make a good gin. Cambridge Distillery are James and Will
Seeking a more family friendly lifestyle, shorter commutes and a greater sense of community, James and Will moved out of the big smoke with their families to the picturesque town of Cambridge, in the heart of Waikato, New Zealand.
They didn’t start out with a plan to become distillers. But their fondness for the town and its people cultivated the idea of making gins that would remind them of their new home – using botanicals foraged from amongst the many gardens, lakes and woodlands of their community. Sensory memories – a lasting reminder.
“We feel Cambridge has given us so much that we aim, in some small way, to enhance its story and for The Cambridge Distillery Co. to become a very small, but very enjoyable, part of its history. Our endeavor is to produce spirits that remind you of a certain place, a terroir, a homestead? Premium spirits, each with their own distinct taste and provenance.”

Saturdays 12pm – 6pm
