Although based on a classic English style, we have used all NZ ingredients to add a kiwi twist. The malts have European lineage but to embrace NZ made products we have used Canterbury grown Gladfield Malts. We have also used a combination of NZ grown English hop varieties, including Sticklebract and Fuggles blended with some NZ native Taiheke and Wai-iti. The latter two (Taiheke & Wai-iti) are the main flavour and aroma hops.
We think the word ‘Elixir’ aptly describes this beer. An elixir is defined as a medicinal liquid intended to cure ones ills, while in mythological terms the ‘elixir of life’ grants the drinker eternal life or youth. Although we can’t guarantee these effects from consuming our Hop Elixir, it might just take some of your ills away!
