Cocktail Merchant

If you are planning your destination wedding in Queenstown, Central Otago you won’t be disappointed, we live in paradise.

Connoisseur is a Queenstown owned liquor company with a decade of experience supplying the local bars, as well as national retail customers.

We also set up private wine cellars so our wine knowledge is top notch, and hold accounts with every supplier.  We are independent and not aligned to a large banner company and their products.

Connoisseur hold over 700 different products in stock, including many hard to find specialty ingredients, and locally made wines and spirits. If it’s for sale in New Zealand, we can get it for you.  Connoisseur can work with you to create a bespoke signature wedding cocktail to welcome your guests, and have bar tenders to hire on request.

We have a chiller trailer available so that your wine, beer and spirits will be consolidated and delivered to you on site nice and cold.

If you are wondering how to plan your beverages, and how much to budget per person, please drop us an email to [email protected] or call Nicolet direct on 021999473 our aim is to make your special day as easy as possible.
