  • Supplier Profile: Palliser Estate

    As one of New Zealand’s iconic wine companies Palliser Estate has a prestigious heritage and exciting future. It is an unlisted public company, proudly owned by a small number of loyal and passionate New Zealanders, who believe in investing in super premium producers.

    “We are old school and we are proud of it, acting with honour, choosing to be strong leaders and practicing exceptional craftsmanship is par for the course at Palliser. We are avid pursuers of excellence. That’s never going to change. It’s who we are.”

    The most important part of any vineyard (besides the people) is the land.

    The Martinborough Terrace, where they grow their grapes, is a small but very special area of land located at the southern end of the North Island. Framed by the Ruamahanga and Huangarua Rivers which helped carve out the Terrace centuries ago. The land is a stony silt loam overlaying varying depths of ancient free draining river gravels. The climate is dry with frosts and strong winds challenging them at every turn but when the harvest comes all the hard work is more than worth it.

    Palliser Estate own seven vineyards on the Terrace. Although they are within walking distance of each other they are all producing quite distinctive wine styles reflecting the differences in soils and micro climates. It’s a perfect combination that, for them, creates perfect wines.

    Palliser isn’t just about their past, they are also planning ahead for their future history.
    After completing the process of converting the Winery and Wharekauhau vineyards to organic management, other vineyards will follow in due course (OmSanti vineyard has begun conversion).They feel this will provide the truest representation of sense of place as well as improving the soil for future generations.

  • Cassels and Sons

    Cassels & Sons Brewing Co is a family owned brewery in Christchurch, New Zealand, who have been brewing on a commercial scale since 2009. At The heart of the brand and the business is a belief in heritage and craftsmanship.

    With a lifetime of brewing, Alasdair Cassels along with son Zak and son-in-law, Joe Shanks built a wood fired brewery in the Old Tannery Buildings in June 2009 to serve the local community. In February 2011 the earthquake destroyed the original plant. However, not to be beaten, within 100 days, the family opened a brewpub, 'The Brewery', a place for the community to gather while the city dusted itself of.

    On the back of this Alasdair wasted no time in developing "The Tannery', a heritage focused Victorian retail arcade specialising in boutique fashion stores with a current registered value of NZ$31 million.

    Through the appreciation of traditional methods mixed with modern technical practices and a will to create the best beer experience possible, Cassels & Sons Milk Stout was awarded a trophy at the 2011 NZ Brewers Guild Awards and has, along with other beer styles, won medals since.

    In 2012. Simon Bretherton was hired as Executive Brewer (from Boddingtons Brewery in the

    UK and Little Creatures Brewery in Australia). Bringing Simon on demonstrated the passion and commitment Cassels and Sons has, to become the number one craft beer producer in New Zealand (and the World!).

    Cassels & Sons have recently invested in a Kosme labeller and a Moravek bottling machine and commissioned additional capacity. Their focus remains on quality and craftsmanship, using local resources with a 'no shortcuts' mentality.

    Milk Stout:
    A New Zealand interpretation of an Old English classic. The Milk Stout contains a non-fermentable lactose sugar derived from milk. Deep black and full bodied with mocha and milk chocolate aromatics, it is smooth with a slightly sweet, balanced finish. The Milk stout recently won a Silver medal at the 2018 Dublin Beer Cup, a Silver at the 2018 International Beer Challenge and a Country Winner for Sweet Stout at the 2018 World Beer Awards.

    Red IPA:
    Cassels Red IPA is full bodied, rich and vibrant. Our speciality malts add serious complexity with flavours and aromas including dark fruit, raisin, toast and light caramel, balanced by assertive, crisp hop bitterness and perplexing pine, citrus, lime, stone fruit, floral and tropical characters.

    Extra Pale Ale:
    Distinct hoppy, fruit characters from New Zealand's famous Nelson Sauvin hop, this golden Pale Ale is nicely balanced on a soft malt bed, smooth and refreshing from start to finish.

    Golden Age:
    A highly sessionable beer, light, refreshing and moreish yet overflowing with character. The Wai-iti hops are aromatic, elegant and bring amazing flavours to the nose and palate. The hop characters of citrus, peach, and apricot leap from the glass, finishing clean and crisp.

  • Sistema

    Starting his business in a garage in New Zealand 30 years ago, Brendan Lindsay has built a product line being exported to 82 countries around the world and counts its customers in the millions.

    Sistema’s Kiwi-made design, the paragon of plastic food storage, has been keeping food fresh in school bags, pantries and lunchroom fridges for the past 30 years, and now employ over 300 people and has a new manufacturing plant in Auckland, which uses the latest robotic technology in their art 200,000 square foot factory in New Zealand.

    Taking the simple premise that customers would want a well-made, beautifully designed, food safe storage container that would be stackable, the Sistema range was born.

    The Klip It collection with its distinctive blue clips launched the company into the Australian and New Zealand markets. That range has now been added to with the release of the Microwave and To Go family of products designed for added convenience.

    Sistema general manager Glenn Beattie says it’s the New Zealand-made print on the bottom that makes all the difference.

    “One of our major selling points overseas is that our products are made in New Zealand,” Beattie says. “The fact our products are made in New Zealand means they’re perceived as safer than, say, plastic products made in China.”

    Using BPA-free plastic has earned the brand the approval of the Food and Drug Administration in America, the penultimate tick for plastics manufacturers in the eyes of safety-conscious US consumers.

    When going into discussion with Us Fortune 500 Company Newell Brands regarding the sale of Sistema, Lindsay only agreed to sell his company if the new owner could guarantee that business would continue to take place in New Zealand for the next 20 years. He also demanded that they would guarantee all staff, inside and outside New Zealand, long term employment opportunity.
