When Chris and Nicola’s small orchard in Roxburgh, Central Otago began producing more fruit than they could deal with they started a brewery. Fed up with all the over-sugared products on the market, Gadoochi cider was made using nothing but fruit and yeast, which resulted in the famous super dry Gadoochi Ciders.
The beer brewing side of Gadoochi has come a long way from Chris’s first brew, which was made in an old washing machine barrel back in the 80s. The new state of the art brewery he has built at Tuatara café/bar in Invercargill could easily be described as a piece of art.
The gravity feed 300-litre brewery produces 4 types of Cider; Cry Baby, Mad Granny, 32D and Madder Granny. The beers include Porter, IPA, Hazy, Lager, Pale Ale, Pilsner and APA.
Where did the name for Gadoochi Brewing come from? It is named after Nicola’s most famous painting, Gadoochi Man, which hangs on the wall next to the brewery.
