The National Distillery Company is honoured to be the new custodians of a historic art nouveau 1930’s landmark building in Ahuriri, an old maritime town steeped in history and character.
Positioned on the corner of Ossian Street, The National Distillery Company (Formerly home of the National Tobacco Company and Rothmans) is the diamond in Napier’s architectural crown. Considered an architectural rarity, our Distillery is an impressive example of the birth of modernism in New Zealand Architect, Louis Hay’s original drawings were based on the idea of an ‘arch within a square.’ Hay’s entire design reflects the influence of Art Nouveau and Modernism on the architect. It’s the perfect setting for tasting our handcrafted selection of copper distilled New Zealand gin, vodka, rum and whisky.
We blend modern distilling techniques with time-honoured traditions. We celebrate an exciting play between expansive creativity and an unbending commitment to making spirits that will stand the test of time.
This duality defines us, inspiring our approach to crafting the finest selection of copper distilled New Zealand gins, vodkas, rums and whiskies available.
