A trip to the Illicit Past...

Due to planned renovation/upgrade, the Moonshine Museum is closed temporarily. 

Gore’s colourful past as a centre for illicit whisky distilling and bootlegging is brought to life at the Hokonui Moonshine Museum.

The adventures of the Scottish settlers and their exploits to avoid run-ins with the law are kept alive through dioramas, audio-visuals and artefacts.

You can taste Old Hokonui made to the original recipe at the end of your visit, or even take a bottle home with you.

Purchase Hokonui Moonshine.
