HorseBox Brewing Co

HorseBox is an independent brewing company creating popular styles and experimental beers. Supplying quality crafted beers nationwide since November 2015, we are based in Nelson, New Zealand.

We endeavour to create well balanced beers which celebrate the amazing hops grown on our doorstep, and those from further afield. Our flavours range from hoppy bold experimental brews, to crisp clean Pilsner. HorseBox beers are available to enjoy and purchase throughout Aotearoa.

We continue to create new and exciting beers as we grow. We invite you to join us on this exciting journey.

THE GIN EXPERIMENT

To mark and celebrate our second anniversary, we decided to try something a little different. A delicious and unique Gin was created using 1000 litres of Ronin Pilsner, with a limited edition of 100 bottles available across New Zealand. The character of residual hop flavour profiles complimented by the infused additions resulted in a stand out spirit.

The Beer Lover's GIN - 44%

Infused with Juniper, Cardamon & Lemon peel to enhance the hop and malt profiles. The result is a sweet full flavoured GIN
