‘Hokonui’ is a legendary southern spirit first made in the bush clad Southland hills of the same name. Over 50 years of localised prohibition gave rise to this truly indigenous cottage industry and brought forth some legendary clandestine activity in the hill, gullies and farm sheds around Gore.

In keeping with this tradition, spirits from southern New Zealand providers will be featured along with matched tapas style food from the wilds of inland and costal Southland. As part of the Bayleys Tussock Country event, themed live country music by special guests will also feature. A complete ‘Moonshine’ package.

Where: Hokonui Moonshine Museum, Gore Arts & Heritage Precinct, 16 Hokonui Drive, Gore


When: Tuesday 28 May 2024, 6.00pm

Cost: $80pp + booking fee

Ticket includes food, beverages and entertainment.
