Started in Arrowtown by a couple of avid-gin drinking, kiwi builders. One day in the workshop, they decided they might have a nudge at creating their own gin. After a few years and a whole lot of trialling, they've nailed it beyond belief.
A "Rifter" is a term to describe a forager from the early gold mining era, specifically in reference to those who explored the rifts around the hills of Arrowtown, searching for that elusive nugget. After a hard day on the hunt, whether gold was secured or not, a gin was always found in their hands.
