You will immerse yourself into the wonderful world of gin. We will guide you through the botanical plants and spices which are used to create gin. We will then invite you to fashion your own two gin creations to sip, sit back and relax with.


Our Fragrance Experience is the ultimate way to relax, rewind and reward your special occasion. Perfumery is the art of blending fagrant botanical essential oils to create a perfume designed especially for you. This is the perfect way to celebrate special occasions such as wedding, product launches, birthdays, hens’ parties or family-get-togethers – all with a unique and natural twist. You will take your fragrance home with you.

For lunch, a glass of bubbles is served before Batch Winery’s signature offering of High Tea offers a taste of New Zealand vintage dishes created with a contemporary twist. Their three tiers of great tastes means you can linger and enjoy the views.

The complimentary Batch Winery shuttle bus will return you to Matiatia Ferry Terminal for a leisurely cruise back across the Hauraki Gulf.

“Just a quick email to say that the Gin and Tonic Open Event was AMAZING. The whole hens’ party was buzzing from it and it made my sister so happy!

Thoroughly enjoyed it, you guys are fantastic!” 🙂 Emma, Head Hen

“We had such a great time! Thank you and the team so much. It was a lot of fun and we all enjoyed it.

I will be recommending it to others and can’t wait to come back some time and do it again.” 😊
