End of an Era

Our Cellar Door located in the grand old Loan & Mercantile Building in Harbour Street Oamaru was closed in May 2020, after being the heart and soul of New Zealand Whisky for almost 20 years!

Thanks to Warren & Deb Preston who originally set it all up with the help of the Oamaru Whitestone Civic Trust, our amazing staff was able to make it into a warm and welcoming place over the years.

But we would like to assure all you whisky lovers, that we are constantly reviewing creative solutions and best timing for offering you all the chance to do some tastings again. We are hoping to offer you more wonderful whisky experiences and familiar fun times in the Northern Hotel; in the near future.

For all your Whisky needs in the meantime,  please head along to our online shop (shop.thenzwhisky.com). We look forward to sharing a dram with you again soon!
