Southern Distillery

Manufacturing of bespoke washbacks and infuser housing for imported stills for the world's most southern distillery, Cardrona Distillery.

The Cardrona distillery was a family project, that entailed building a commercial distillery, the first of its kind in New Zealand. Farra was contracted to manufacture washbacks and infusers to specified dimensions to be installed in the distillery.  Within the distillery, there was two whisky stills as well as a column still that would be used to produce hand-crafted spirits such as vodka, gins and liquors.

As the photos show, the delivery and installation was made more difficult due to a heavy snowfall creating conditions that were tough.  These factors were overcome for a successful delivery.
