Due to planned renovation/upgrade, the Moonshine Museum is closed temporarily.
A trip to the Illicit Past... Gore’s colourful past as a centre for illicit whisky distilling and bootlegging is brought to life at the Hokonui Moonshine Museum.
The adventures of the Scottish settlers and their exploits to avoid run-ins with the law are kept alive through dioramas, audio-visuals and artefacts. You can taste Old Hokonui made to the original recipe at the end of your visit, or even take a bottle home with you.
Old Hokonui whiskey, made to the original recipe, is among a range of merchandise available to buy online at GoreNZ shop.
