Dancing Sands Distillery

We began as a love story and ended with one of New Zealand’s most established distilleries – Dancing Sands. Our founders Sarah and Ben first hit it off when they met through their corporate jobs. After managing a long distance relationship between New York and London they decided to start a new chapter together in New Zealand.

Eventually, Sarah and Ben Bonoma both left their corporate careers and took a leap into the unknown to establish Dancing Sands Distillery in 2016.  

Dancing Sands Distillery is in Tākaka where they offer free tastings from their Tasting Room.  Dancing Sands makes their gins using a vapour distillation technique to craft their five gin flavours: Dancing Sands Dry Gin, Sauvignon Blanc Gin, Sun-Kissed Gin , Barrel-Aged Gin, and Wasabi Gin.
