Dancing Sands Distillery is based in a beautiful and remote corner of New Zealand’s South Island: Golden Bay, home to the clearest fresh water springs in the world. The purity of the springs serves as the inspiration for everything we do.
Our distillery is located down the road from the Dancing Sands Spring, where our team distills, bottles, labels, and packages every single bottle of Dancing Sands’ Gin by hand. Quality is at the centre of everything we do and has helped us become New Zealand’s most awarded distillery.
We take our name from the Dancing Sands Spring, one of the fresh water springs within Golden Bay’s Te Waikoropupū Springs — some the most clear, fresh water springs in the world. Each bottle of our gin is blended with the water from the aquifer that feeds Dancing Sands Spring, allowing us to make the best possible gin and perfect its taste.
The spring pumps water at an amazing 14,000 litres per second at a crisp 11ºC. The purity of the spring serves as inspiration for everything we do.
