A delicious honey mead liqueur, made with East Cape mānuka honey, French brandy and a unique blend of spices, Bendigo Gold (formerly known as Ambrosia) sparkles with gold flakes.
The Proposal reflects our heritage, dating back to the Central Otago gold rush of the 1860's, when Johan found just enough gold to make a ring for his wife Louisa.
Gold was discovered in the Bendigo Creek in 1862, and while some fortunate prospectors yielded great fortune, my Great Great Grandfather, Johan Hansen, secured just enough to make a ring for his future wife, Louisa. Later, in 1868, they moved to Thames in the Coromandel and set up the Hansen Bros. general store.
Five generations later we are proud to continue the family tradition of retailing great New Zealand made products to locals and visitors alike.
