Feijoa is a true Kiwi classic and now the iconic fruit is hitting our shelves in alcoholic form...

That's right. Kiwi company 1919 Distilling have just introduced another incredible gin to their Kiwiana range.

After record sellouts of Kiwi classics Pineapple Bits, Chocolate Fish, Raspberry Lamington, Pavlova, 1919 have released another stunning flavour, this time Feijoa, just in time for those backyard BBQs or relaxing by the pool.

Head Distiller 1919 Distilling Soren Crabb said, "Finding the right Feijoa flavour that complemented our gin was always going to be a challenge, but after chatting to numerous kiwis and making the most of the feijoa season, a clear winner emerged, and we are proud to showcase it in this year's release."

“In the end, we infused the perfect feijoa to showcase while not losing the integrity of the London dry gin. It worked beautifully. We were pretty blown away; the aroma filled the whole distillery so much so the neighbours wanted to pop over for a taste test.” 

Want to try it yourself? The new flavour can be found in Glengarry stores up and down Aotearoa, or you can head to 1919 Distilling directly to check out all their other epic Kiwiana flavours! A bottle retails for around $75 each.
