Welcome to

d:STIL PROJECT

home to New Zealand's only GIN SCHOOL

Forged from a love of spirits, botanicals and distilling, we offer craft spirit and distilling experiences where you learn and have a whole lot of fun at the same time.  Held in Coatesville there's plenty to enjoy - food, cocktails, gardens and alpacas.

Events can include distil-your-own-gin or rum, distilling demos, gin tastings and gin-inspired food. Birthdays, hen parties, groups over 8+ talk to us about a private event.
