The Oddbins Take

The Mauri name for New Zealand is Aotearoa, which translates to The Land of the Long White Cloud. Apparently, this is aptly named as the formation known as a lenticular cloud is quite common in the skies of Aotearoa. Who needs meteorologists? Lenticular clouds aren’t the only thing to hail from New Zealand; there are also some wonderfully powerful hops. Tempest use Nelson Sauvin and Montueka which gives this extra pale ale refreshing flavours of passion fruit, mango and grapefruit. A beer worthy of a good haka followed by some cloud gazing we say!

About The Brewery

The Tempest adventure began when founders, Scotsman Gavin and New Zealander Annika, met working in a brewpub in British Colombia at the end of the 90's. It was here they found their inspiration, with Gavin working as a chef and seeing the kind of beers being produced there that just didn't exist back in Scotland. As he says, it was his ""Wow, here we go"" moment when he realised that he could be brewing beers that could be held to the same lofty standards as his food. With that, their journey took them to NZ where they built a kit in their garage, and learned everything from scratch. It was there that Gavin first brewed their flagship pale ale Long White Cloud.

With his creative flair and sharp mind for flavour profiles, the beers were tasting great and that gave them the drive to go even further. After another trip, taking them to Gavin's homeland, they poured their efforts into a gastropub (The Cobbles) in Kelso whilst looking for the perfect home for their brewery.

Having gained a high reputation, after 3 years they found a space in an old Kelso dairy and founded the Tempest Brewing Co in April 2010. In February 2015, they moved to a 30HL brewery in Tweedbank, in the Scottish Borders. They got a bottling line, new tanks, new team members, and it's allowed them to continue doing what they do best on a larger scale.
