Our Gin is made using a number of internationally sourced botanicals. The wild Manuka flower is handpicked from the coastal banks of the Matakana region. It was 1769 when the explorer James Cook first stepped onto New Zealand shores. He encountered the indigenous Maori who introduced Cook to the native plant, the Manuka. When Cook learned that its leaves could be used to make tea, he named the plant the Tea Tree.
Seville Orange peel, Croatian Juniper, Bitter Almonds, Coriander, Angelica root, Orrisroot, Portuguese Lemon peel, Liquorice Root, Black Pepper, Cardamom and Cinnamon join our base notes of Vanilla and Coconut.
South Seas purity and quality are integral to the taste profile, lending Ariki Gin a Pacific edge.
Our Vodka has hints of Vanilla and is crafted to perfection. The Manuka flower of Aotearoa, New Zealand sets a unique keynote to our spirits. Only the purest New Zealand water is used. The Vanilla is carefully selected by the women of Rarotonga and Mangaia, the southernmost islands of the Cook Islands. These precious beans take a considerable amount of time to mature and develop the depth of flavour required for our vodka. Coconut used for the Vodka comes from the Kingdom of Tonga.
There are no additional flavours, additives, softeners, essence or foaming agents involved in the production of Ariki Spirits.
Imagine the spirit of paradise.
Enter Ariki, an inspirational spirit with a Polynesian heart reaching out to a global audience.
We take immense pride in producing ultra-premium gin and vodka, spirits that need to be extraordinary to carry the name of Ariki, a traditional chiefly title.
Sustainability in business and doing our part in advancing the people of Polynesia is, and forever will be, an enduring priority for Ariki Spirit. We are honoured and proud to announce that we have now become members and supporters of ‘We the Reef’
We The Reef unifies businesses to make impactful change for the ocean that connects and sustains us all. We want the next generation to experience the ocean as we know it – to surf its waves, to dive with its creatures, and breathe the oxygen it produces. Coral reefs are the foundations of a healthy ocean, and it is only in coming together that we can save them.
Our goal is to show the members of our tribe the great work that is being done in ocean conservation and creating a global movement to save the reef through coral reef restoration, awareness activities and innovative solutions.
