Welcome to Aqua Vitae

Aqua Vitae specialise in Home Brewing, Home Distilling and Home Winemaking.

We also sell Cordials, Sports drinks, Cheese & Yogurt making kits and Kefir & Kombucha products.

Whether you are a beginner home brewer or an experienced brewer, we have all the beer, wine and spirit supplies that you need.

Home brewing, home distilling and home winemaking can be cheaper than buying commercially equivalent beverages. It also allows people to adjust recipes according to their own tastes creating beverages that are unavailable on the open market.

Please feel free to just stop in and have a browse or email us at distiler@aquavitae.co.nz if you require any product not listed on our website. We will do our best to source it for you.


Location: We are located at 268 Lincoln Road in the Addington Village, sited 2.5 kilometres south-west of the city centre of Christchurch.

Our hours: Monday to Friday 10am - 5pm, Saturday 10am - 2pm.
