KIWI FRUIT


We start with a delicate ZESPRI® GREEN Kiwifruit, but end with this sophisticated, multi-layered, truly sensational liqueur.



The technical bit...

The ZESPRI® GREEN Kiwifruit is washed and hand-sorted, using only fruit that has the ripeness and sweetness to achieve the high quality of fruit distillate we need for this liqueur. The pulped fruit is infused with neutral spirits, a product distilled in New Zealand from fermented whey. This pulp is, after a few days, batch distilled in our copper still. The traditional form of the pot still and the skill of the distiller combine to yield a small amount of pure fruit essense - the natural flavours and aromas of the fruit.

Only the heart of the kiwifruit distillate is aged for a minimum of 6 to 12 months before it is blended into 8thTRIBE Kiwifruit Liqueur, using only fresh spring water from our own deep spring, sugars - no aritificial flavours or aromas - only the delicate bouquet of ripe kiwifruit.

Once blended, our Kiwifruit Liqueur is aged for another few months, before being presented to you for drinking.
