Late last year Denzien Urban Distillery arrived on the block — Lombard Street's laneway, to be exact. This year the craft gin distillery has opened its doors to the Ginification Sessions, weekly gin tasting sessions.

Every Friday evening from 4-8pm, Denzien will be offering tasting sessions with a cocktail mixologist and Denzien founders, Eamon O'Rourke and Mark Halton. O'Rourke and Halton will be on hand to spread their knowledge and love of gin to anyone who walks through the door. They'll also be mixing up the best kind of tangs for you to sip on.

Denzien is a distillery with a bit of a twist, as it creates small batch gin from rainwater and native botanicals. O'Rourke and Halton's early business discussions of Denzien took place at Hanging Ditch on Leeds Street over a glass of gin, thus pathing laneways as part of Denzien's foundation. Pickle and Pie will pitch in on the food side of things.

There's no need to book, just show up ready for taste explosions to play on your palate.

Find Denzien Urban Distillery at 10 Lombard Street, Te Aro.
