Thank you to everyone who visited our gardens and attended our events for the 2021 Taranaki Garden Festival.

SOLD OUT! Behind the Scenes at Juno Gin

Self Drive 

Back by popular demand as this multi-award-winning gin is made right here in Taranaki.
To celebrate the 2021 Taranaki Garden Festival, Dave and Jo James, the Juno Gin team, offer an opportunity to come and meet the makers at their New Plymouth distillery. The tour will give you a welcome cocktail, a behind-the-scenes look at how gin is made, the key botanicals, and glorious tastings of a range of their gins, including the yet-to-be-released Ltd Ed 2021 Spring Gin.
The distillery also offers a cellar door for off-premise enjoyment.

New awards to add to their bounty were SILVER – 2018 International Wine & Spirits Awards (Hong Kong) and BRONZE – 2018 International Wine & Spirits Awards (London) and their 2019 Summer Gin Winner: GOLD at the 2019 NZ Spirit Awards and their Juno Styx Barrel-Aged Gin 2019 SILVER at the same awards.
