Hakanoa Handmade Drinks was established in 2009 by Rebekah Hay. She brewed real proper home-made ginger beer and sold from her van on the roadside. Now sold in well over 200 outlets around NZ, Hakanoa soft drinks and spice concentrates are established artisan products requested by discerning baristas and fine food outlets.
Hakanoa Dry Ginger Beer is made exactly the way NZ'ers have made ginger beer at home for ever. Brewed with a 'bug' or 'plant, fresh ginger and lemon juice, no preservatives, not too much sugar, lovely and crisp and gingery. It took Rebekah ages to get the recipe just right, and it took another couple of years to get it tasting just right AND stop it from exploding! Once we cracked that, we won a Cuisine Artisan Award for it - hurrah!
Hakanoa's Lime & Chilli Ginger Beer, Ginger concentrates, and Chai concentrates are made with equal care and fine ingredients, and must be tried by ginger & spice lovers.
