Under the banner of 'Spirits Worth Sharing,' 5 Mile Distilling represents more than just creating world-class spirits. Our purpose is built around the power of sharing — sharing the stunning beauty of Taupo, Aotearoa; sharing in the responsibility of preserving our environment; and sharing in the prosperity and growth of our community.
We exist not merely to distil spirits, but to craft connections and contribute to sustainable local growth. Every bottle we produce isn't just a beverage; it's a vessel carrying our shared vision, a testament to our dedication, and a part of the spirit of Taupo.
'Spirits Worth Sharing' is not simply a catchy slogan—it embodies our purpose. It echoes our values, tells our story, and invites everyone to join in this shared experience. This is our 'why'. This is the essence of 5 Mile Distilling.
To inspire the Taupō community to achieve extradentary things, enriching shared experiences and fostering a greener, more connected future.
