Imagination gin is the passionate adventure of good mates Simon Wilson and Chris Charteris.
After 2 years of scheming and experimenting (and a bit of drinking), in 2018 we established our distillery on the site of the original Tuatara Brewery in the lush Reikorangi Valley on the Kapiti Coast in New Zealand. Being in the shadow of New Zealand’s pioneering craft beer makers is a constant inspiration to us to be the very best we can.
We distill in an 8 plate fractionating column still using pure rainwater captured on the property. The secret to our flavour profile comes from the distinctive yeast we use in fermentation, charcoal filtered rainwater, the delicate balance of botanicals in distillation and of course, very active imaginations!
We source many of our ingredients locally from family owned and operated farms and orchards and from backyard home gardeners. These people, their families and communities we consider to be a hugely important part of what we are doing.
The name imagination represents the ingenuity and anything-is-possible attitude that epitomises the New Zealand spirit that binds us together as one people. We hope you’ll enjoy the fruits of our imaginations.
Cheers, Si and Chris
