Puhoi Organic Distillery is the only distillery in Auckland region recommended by the Lonely Planet Guide’s ‘Global Distilleries Tour’. It is also the only distillery that can be visited by the public in Auckland by Invitation.
The Private Luxury Buffet Lunch & Tasting at Puhoi Organic Distillery is not what one can expect! Designed to restart your alcohol understanding and consumption experience. The celebrated Master Distiller Alex Kirichuk with the Degree of Nuclear Power Engineer and many years of experience will totally reboot your perception of alcohol during this highly entertaining and educational event. You will learn many dirty secrets of the mainstream alcohol industry, which give alcohol a bad name. You will obtain memorable experience and lots of sensational and true anecdotes to tell. On top of this, you will find out a lot of valuable information regarding responsible yet enjoyable alcohol consumption in a very unusual yet entertaining format during 1.5 hours. For the educational and entertaining purposes, a number of breathalyzer tests are conducted during the event.
This event is a private function reserved for your group only, conducted on a private property. This event’s format is totally unique, based on the legendary Ukrainian hospitality, and not offered anywhere else outside of Ukraine. Expect more food and drink than you can consume, many hilarious jokes, and the discovery of special spirits-matching food, known as ‘Zakuski’. The plentiful gourmet ‘Zakuski’ are specially selected for each presented handcrafted beverage. The fantastic range of handcrafted beverages includes:
Aperitifs by your choice (range of Medicinal Bitters, Oak-aged Vermouth, Raspberry Amaro, Chernobyl Martini Cocktail, etc). Prepare your appetite for the main show during the introduction to the only Solar-powered Distillery in the World;
Neat strong spirits matching Cold and Hot Zakuski (a range of rare & exotic Vodkas including award-winning Ukrainian style Manuka Honey & Chilli Horilka and Oak-rested Starka). Discover the true cossack traditions of alcohol consumption;
Digestives to be selected from sophisticated cocktails made by non-conventional recipes and innovative technologies. Get educated about the unique science of Enotherapy – the philosophy behind Puhoi Organic Distillery’s all-natural beverages;
ONE FOR THE ROAD – the final drink by your choice before leaving; and the last breathalyzer test to prove that your level of enjoyment is much higher than the level of alcohol in your breath.
A pleasant bonus in the end – 25% discount on any purchase before you leave.
The price only for $150 incl. GST per head (for groups from 10 to 20 people).
