Caretaker – Auckland, New Zealand

New Zealand has long flown under the radar of the world’s bar awards and critics. But there’s a growing energy and sophistication developing in the bar scene there, particularly in cities such as Wellington and Auckland.

In Auckland, Caretaker is one of the leading lights. It was founded in 2016 by husband-­and-­wife team Alastair Walker and Heather Garland, who previously worked under the esteemed Michael Madrusan, owner of Melbourne’s The Everleigh and a former Milk & Honey alumnus.

Their focus is on tailoring the perfect cocktail to each patron’s tastes, using fresh, seasonal ingredients and hand­-cut ice.
