Take flight with Garden City Helicopters and experience the taste and tales of the Akaroa harbour, told in gin with Akaroa Craft Distillery. Take in unique views of Canterbury and Banks Peninsula from the air, look down on gathering grounds of the many botanicals that make up the flavours of the gin on sample. Every bottle sampled is a taste of Akaroa and surrounds. A short drive from the hilltop helipad to the Akaroa Craft Distillery Tasting House. Your tasting experience is followed by a food platter between two people whilst enjoying a G&T each. A complementary bottle per couple of Hector's Gin - Named after the Hector's Dolphins that swim off Akaroa, Hector's Gin comes in flavour profiles foraged from the Banks Peninsula.
