We’re Growing Again! We're Taking Our First Steps Into The Spirits Category

Announcing our partnership with Long Cloud Spirits.


Wine industry pioneers Giesen Group are moving into the spirits category in partnership with Long Cloud Spirits.

Long Cloud owner Shannon Dimbleby joins the Giesen team to head up the family-owned business’ journey into distributing spirit brands. The Long Cloud portfolio includes craft, family-owned companies that align well with existing brands under the Giesen Group umbrella.

Four imported gins will be available nationwide through the well-established and growing Giesen Sales Team. Warner’s Distillery, Rock Rose Gin from Dunnet Bay Distillery, Chase Distillery, and Lind & Lime Gin will all be distributed by the Giesen Group.

Globally the Gin category has seen strong consistent growth, with New Zealand no different – the category leads the charge in spirits growth with over 28% MAT July 2020.

Giesen Group General Manager, Kyle Skene, says the company is excited about this further growth and innovation. “We’ve been watching the huge growth in gin around the world so working with Shannon is a fantastic next step for us. The craft and hand-made aspects of this category really suit the rest of our portfolio. Having other family producers to represent in our New Zealand portfolio alongside the likes of Peter Lehmann Wines, Kaiser Bros Beer, and Konrad Wines is exceptionally exciting. We all have in common that we’re exceptionally passionate about what we’ve crafted and can’t wait to take these brands to new heights.”

The Giesen Sales Team will be distributing these brands from February 2021; please contact your local Giesen Group representative or phone +64 3 344 6270.
