Cassels Beer Exports
The Back Story
There are very few breweries in the world that can boast of using glacier water from artesian wells to aid in the creation of exceptional beer Cassels from Christchurch, New Zealand is one that can.
Here at Cassels we source the highest quality of ingredients that are either produced from or grown in our own ‘backyard’.
These ingredients are widely known and respected throughout the world. Like the milk lactose we use in our award-winning Milk Stout that is supplied by the world-renowned New Zealand dairy industry. Or the current favourite of the hop-world, Nelson Sauvin hops which bring their gooseberry and wine-like flavours to our beers.
We are also one of the few breweries in New Zealand that prefer to use a high percentage of whole hops to ensure quality and character in all our beer styles. Using whole Nelson Sauvin in our Pilsner contributes juicy lime, sauvignon grape, and subtle juniper berry characters. In our NZ Pale Ale we use recently developed Wai-iti hops, which brings an excellent crisp and clean bitterness with a citrus character and fruit aroma.
New Zealanders are known worldwide for their Kiwi ingenuity. That can-do attitude here at Cassels is what got us through Christchurch’s post-earthquake challenges. But it is our uncompromising approach to quality and flavour which is winning us awards.
