They have proudly contributed towards the manufacturing of BeGin distillery (home of Taranaki’s award-winning Juno Gin) and more recently, the show-stopping Whisky Southland Distillery, Hokonui Moonshine Still.
With experience in hydro-forming spherical vessels and developing exotic metals like copper, stills are a natural centrepiece for Rivet. They provide a company that has the skills and inclination to make something special, with a platform to really showcase what they can do.
Corten is a robust, versatile and economical weathering steel. Because the material develops a protective patina of rust, it holds benefits over a more traditional mild steel as it prevents it from deteriorating.
Corten is commonly used for items such as planter boxes, architectural installations, fences, sculptures, letterboxes, signage, garden art and much more.
