Our Story

A Taste of New Zealand: One of the largest selections of top end New Zeland gourmet and gift products.  We comb the Country searching and sifting for the very best gift products we can serve for you, our valued Customer! 

 100% New Zealand product - 100% Guaranteed


A Taste of New Zealand offers a large variety of top-end gourmet gift products in New Zealand and we are thrilled to be the new custodians of that product range and service. 

We have considerable experience in the mail-order business and our intentions are pure!  We will continue to preserve the wholistic New Zealand flavour and high quality of the current product offerring while adding some innovation and excitement along the way.

The product will still be sourced from Northland to The Bluff from some of our most creative artisan producers who are sometimes boutique in size but huge on imagination.

We will stock top labels from Marlborough, from Central Otago, Hawkes Bay and all over New Zealand.

If you have a Corporate Order that requires particular labelling or packaging please ask and we will discuss your special requirements.  This is our strength.

We ship anywhere in the world. Some destinations have restrictions and a few items are prohibited, e.g. we are not able to send alcohol to the States, Canada, India or South Africa. In fact it is difficult to send ANYTHING to South Africa.

As well as the gourmet lines there are also some beautiful art-works, jewellery, and ceramics. and of course some Kiwiana. We can dispatch these to any destination, cost depends on weight ...... ask for a quote ...for anything.

We look forward to continuing to deliver outstanding Gifts and customer service to all A Taste of New Zealand customers.

Warmest best wishes

Kate King

A Taste of New Zealand has been owned and operated by Iris Spittle since 1993. Originally located in her private house, (the only liquor licensed garage in the country) then to shared premises, the business relocated to a showroom in Havelock North in 2002. Iris ran the business with a wonderful team of talented and hardworking people including a number of casual staff - some of whom had been coming back for years for the very busy Christmas, Valentines, Easter and Mother's Day trading periods.

Traditonally, the priority has been delivering satisfaction for all customers, striving to provide the best possible service at all times and to send gifts that will be suitable for the most discerning customer and recipient.

After twelve successful years Iris sold the business to Gourmet Direct Ltd in March 2006.
