What you need to know

Book the world's first helicopter gin tour in Queenstown with a magical scenic flight, visit three boutique cellar doors and embark on a distillery tour, generous gin tastings and a shared grazing board are included.

The gin-tasting adventure begins with a 15-minute scenic helicopter flight over Queenstown. Be whisked away to a secret location before landing on the top of a mountain. Here, the pilot will present, pour and serve the first gin and tonic of the day, a very exclusive gin in a remarkable location with complete privacy and stunning panoramic views of the snowcapped alpine landscape.

Next, it’s time to fly to Cardrona Distillery where you’ll land right in front of the property to enjoy the VIP experience with hosts as you tour the facilities and sit down for a gin tasting in the private tasting room. The tour continues with a visit to the historic mining town of Arrowtown to visit ‘The Winery’ for another round of gin tasting and a shared grazing board. The final stop of the day will see you sampling the local ‘Broken Heart’ gins at Arthurs Point before returning to Queenstown.
