SPEIGHT’S PRIDE GOES NATIONWIDE
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.
