New Zealand’s hop varieties

New Zealand’s hop varieties are available to brewers as natural oil extracts thanks to the partnership between New Zealand Hops (NZH) and Totally Natural Solutions (TNS). The two companies forged a joint venture last year, that combined TNS’s patented extraction technologies with NZH’s hops to deliver a fully soluble hop oil that enhances aroma and flavour in beer. The new HopInspiration Premium NZH’s range feature the Nectaron, Kohatu, Moutere, Rakau, Taiheke, Waimea and Wai-iti hop varieties.
