A New House Gin in Town

weekender gin

Weekender, the new house gin that delivers a premium, craft experience without breaking the bank. Weekender captures the essence of sun-kissed kiwi summer days, and long warm playful nights. Crafted for everyday enjoyment or creating memories with friends on your weekend adventures.

Weekender’s appeal lies in its local craft character and affordability. It was conceived by Chris from Blush Gin, who identified a gap in the market for a local, affordable gin that resonates with younger, price-sensitive consumers.

“International entrants to the segment seemed out of touch with Kiwi consumers and their needs, so we created the Weekender range and brand to better resonate with our local customers and deliver a premium local craft product that was affordable. And so far the reception has been exceptional!”

Weekender underscores that premium local craft doesn’t need to be expensive. Its reasonably priced range offers a quality gin experience without reaching for the top shelf.

Infused with real flavours and botanicals, the Weekender range is vibrant and approachable, catering to both traditional and non-traditional gin drinkers. They’re designed to pair well with a variety of premium tonics and sodas, both local and international, to enhance the flavour profiles and reveal hidden nuances.

We believe in simplicity and accessibility when it comes to cocktails and mixers. No need for obscure ingredients; just pure, delicious simplicity. From a robust Negroni with our Orange gin to a surprising blend of our Peach gin and East Imperial Thai Ginger Ale, each combination promises a unique taste adventure.
