Garage Project

Garage Project was started by Pete Gillespie & Jos Ruffell with help from Pete’s brother Ian. When we started out we were tiny. Garage Project wasn’t even micro brewing… it was truly nano brewing. But what we lacked in size we more than made up for in agility and ability to experiment. When you’re brewing on such a small scale you can afford to take risks. That suited us. We wanted to try something new. A few years have passed and we’ve grown, but that same ethos still shapes how we do things at the Garage. Whether we’re brewing 50 litres or several thousand, we’re still here to take some risks, have a bit of fun, and try something new. Way back in the day, when we were just starting out, we wrote a little blurb about each other to shed some light on who we are, and what lead us down the path of starting a brewery in Wellington, (if you’ve ever written your own bio, you’ll know how hard it can be!).

Malfy Gin

Malfy Gins are made in Italy using the finest ingredients including handpicked juniper, Italian Lemons and a selection of Sicilian Pink Grapefruits and Sicilian Blood oranges. These are steeped in alcohol before cold-distillation to keep the botanicals fresh and flavourful and then artfully blended with Italian water from the Piedmont region in North-West Italy. This super-premium gin became part of Pernod Ricard in 2019 and expresses the sun-soaked spirit of the Amalfi Coast.



Čuvar Winery, the flagship brand from Fistonich Family Vineyards, was launched in 2023 by the legendary Sir George Fistonich. With inspiring energy and a lifelong dedication to pioneering progression in the wine industry, Sir George’s vision comes to life through Čuvar, a testament to his iconic status as a wine entrepreneur.

Founded with a commitment to preserving and nurturing the essence of New Zealand fine wine, Čuvar Winery is more than just a winemaking establishment – it’s a guardian of tradition and innovation. Sir George, renowned as the founder of the iconic Villa Maria, embarked on this new venture to contribute to the ongoing story of New Zealand’s rich winemaking heritage.

The name Čuvar, pronounced “chu-var,” holds deep significance, translating to “guardian” in Croatian. Čuvar pays homage to the Croatian wine & viticultural pioneers and many others, who played an important part in shaping what New Zealand’s wine story is today.

Čuvar Winery sits beside terraced vines overlooking the Pacific Ocean, planted by Sir George himself three decades ago in Bayview, Hawkes Bay.

Čuvar Winery is delighted to share its wines as the official Wine of Aotearoa Art Fair.

We want to make drinks that are for the everyday moments as well as the special ones. A drink to have at the office. With your lunch. After a workout. On the go. Or on the dance floor.

We want to help create a balanced lifestyle, and help support better drinking decisions. That’s why we make healthy, clean alternative beverages, which taste delicious and are made from all natural ingredients. Encouraging a balanced lifestyle and Almighty feeling good.

We believe in being moved, and encouraging people to get up and move in anyway for the better. Whatever it is that gets you moving and feeling good, Almighty helps you by hydrating, energising and refueling you with the best.

We care for the environment and want to contribute positively to the next generation. We only use recyclable packaging that is often made from recycled packaging. And from every Almighty drink sold we contribute a portion of our profits to edible education programmes in primary schools, helping to grow a new generation of engaged veggie-eating kids!
