Detour off the main touring route, out past Patearoa, towards the headwaters of the Taieri River.
Out here in this remote setting you will find Lammermoor Whisky & Gin Distillery a unique, proudly family owned farm distillery hand crafting New Zealand whisky and gin. One of the few distilleries to grow their own grain, malt, mash, ferment, distill and mature all on site.
While you are out in the countryside, take the opportunity to visit Clachanburn Gardens, a lush botanical oasis within the heat and dry of Central Otago.
Or, if you want to take it easy, leave your vehicle in Ranfurly and enjoy a 4WD tour of the Maniototo. Sit back, relax and explore the rugged hinterland with a local guide.
