History

South Pacific Distillery was incorporated November of 1982, in Queenstown, New Zealand. Established in Kelvin Heights, in somewhat humble beginnings, this being a converted garage.

The first seven years were dedicated to research and experimentation, until the products were to the exact taste, colour, and consistency, which now deserve the "Roaring Forties", label.

In 1997, Nelson was chosen as the ideal location, and with the purchase of the historic Anchor Shipping & Foundry Co. Ltd. building, the company began its expansion program.

South Pacific Distillery has built and installed a large Rum Distillation plant,which is now producing a very high quality Rum. To compliment this, a large grain distillery, designed and built by Jacob Carl of Germany, has also been installed. A bottling plant, which will fill, cap, and label up to 3,000 bottles per hour, is also on premise.
