Our Whisky

Our ingredients connect us to our culture, our history and our environment; our passion and expertise enable us to honour them. We are privileged to have our own source of pure spring water that has trickled down over centuries from our surrounding volcanic hills. Our New Zealand Barley is grown by three family-owned farms in the rich and fertile South Island. Unburdened by expectation, unhurried by nature, we craft bold, creative single malts that capture the pure spirit of Aotearoa New Zealand.


Our Place

Nestled in a warm, misty, humid valley, protected by the volcanic hills from which we source our pure spring water, Pōkeno is for us a hidden treasure of our remote and beautiful land - and the natural choice of location for our state-of-the-art distillery.
