Queenstown Heli Gin Tour
$559 NZDBook Now
Visit 3 different and unique cellar door experiences
This 6-hour gin experience departs Queenstown daily at 1pm and returns at 7pm. You will be picked up from your accommodation by our heli partner and transported to their heli base in Frankton where after a safety briefing you will be whisked away on a 15-minute scenic flight to a secluded mountain location. Here your pilot will open the hatch, present and pour your first gin of the day, a very exclusive and special gin to start the day. This location on the mountain top provides privacy and panoramic views, a truly remarkable experience and a great way to kick off your afternoon. You will then be transported by helicopter to the Cardrona Distillery, landing right inside the grounds out the front of the property. Here you will meet your gin guide and be taken through a full sensory, tactile tour of the facilities including gin tastings and drinks in the private tasting room.
Your next stop is an easy drive down the Crown Range into the historic gold mining town of Arrowtown where we visit a wonderful cellar door experience called ‘The Winery’ where you will have a relaxed self-guided experience being able to use the knowledge you have just gained to select your gin tasting paddle along with shared grazing boards. There will be time here for you to buy an additional drink whether that be gin, wine, cocktail, beer or other. This location has the largest range of wines in all of Queenstown and is a delight to walk through and explore.
The last stop is a 15-minute journey to Arthurs Point where we visit the “Gin Garden by Broken Heart Gin”. Here you will be guided through a range of local Broken Heart gins in a private room with traditional German Tarte Flambee to share.
This gin experience has been designed to be a nice mix of education, sightseeing and fun. It is perfect for all types of people and there is some flexibility to try other spirits such as vodka, bourbon, whiskey and of course wines throughout if you want to balance or restrict your gin intake.
This tour runs daily but needs to be booked at least 24 hours in advance, the minimum number of people required to run the tour is 4 people.
