SPEIGHT’S PRIDE GOES NA­TION­WIDE

My Wedding - - REAL WEDDING -

Speight’s may have been es­tab­lished in Dunedin nearly a cen­tury and a half ago, but to­day its dis­tinc­tive south­ern taste has cap­tured the palates of Ki­wis up and down the coun­try, and has seen it ma­tured into a much-loved national icon.

The orig­i­nal Speight’s Brew­ery on Rat­tray Street, Dunedin, is un­der­go­ing ex­ten­sive re­de­vel­op­ment - timed to co­in­cide with the re-launch of the Speight’s fam­ily. The pack­ag­ing has been re­freshed while the liq­uid within re­mains un­changed. The fam­ily has grown to in­clude Speight’s Gold Medal Ale (the orig­i­nal ale), Sum­mit, Old Dark and Speight’s 5 Malt Old Dark, Cider – now joined by a new Golden Pale Ale, Triple Hop Pil­sner and Dis­tinc­tion Ale.

While Speight’s may have a new look in 2012, it has al­ways had a unique sense of hu­mour and wry tone run­ning through its ad­ver­tis­ing, and this “straight up” ethos also de­fines its ap­proach mov­ing for­ward. Speight’s has a long and rich his­tory, and the spe­cial ele­ments that have made it so strong, com­bined with the re-en­er­gised look and feel, will en­sure it also has a bright fu­ture.
