September at Pembroke Wines & Spirits

Spring into September

Can you feel it? Spring is in the air, and we couldn't be more pleased to see daffodils popping up and lighter mornings!

We'd like to say a huge to everyone who attended one of our special 'Free Friday' events this August. We were lucky to have some amazing guests, including Bernie from Rifters Distillery, Dan from Pyramid Valley, Sandy from Hazledine Brothers Wine, and Lucie from O Naturel Wines. It was wonderful to share their passions and learn about their craft!

Don't forget - Father's Day is on Sunday! And if you've left it to the last minute, no worries. We have the perfect gift for every dad in-store at Pembroke.

Read on to find out more, and to hear about a very special event coming your way later this month!

Wine, beer, meats and cheeses? Sounds like a pretty good gift for Father's Day! Choose from our pre-packaged giftboxes, or build your own hamper to match his unique tastes. We've got everything from single malt whiskey to port, sherry and bourbon - and, of course, local wines and craft beers.

News from our bottle shop & lounge bar

New spirits on the shelF

We're welcoming some great new gins this spring. First off, we're very pleased to introduce Third Island Gin from Rakiura Distilling on Stewart Island - made with Rakiura rain and Rakiura botanicals!

This is a traditional dry gin with the spice of rainforest botanicals, hints of fresh citrus peel, and cassia bark. Locally foraged manuka, rimu, and horopito dance with juniper and coriander seed in a shower of the freshest rainwater on the planet. This delightful product of New Zealand’s southernmost distillery celebrates the culture, histories and pristine environment of Stewart Island.

Why not come and have a try?


Picnic in the Park is back

As the weather warms up and the days get longer, we're pleased to welcome the return of Pembroke Picnics in the Park! Our gourmet grazing boxes are available to takeaway, whether you're headed off on an adventure or relaxing by the lake. Order from our platter menu, and the team will make it up fresh for you while you wait – or call ahead and collect.
