about us

The Kvas Company is New Zealand's first kvas brewer. Kvas is a traditional Slavic drink brewed by a lactic fermentation process using a starter made from rye bread flavoured with coriander seed and sultanas. It is a low-sugar, highly refreshing and probiotic beverage with complex flavours.
Our Brod Traditional Kvas line is made up of Russian style kvas with traditional flavourings such as lemon and berries. 
Our Brod Original Kvas line is something different, unique combinations of kvas and other flavours - teas, cacao, spices, and seasonal fruits - that you won't find anywhere else in the world. 
We start by making the bread and use only natural ingredients, organic and local where possible, to lovingly make the very best product we can.

Brod Kvas has won a 2017 Cuisine Artisan Award, Highly Commended Best New Product in the 2018 Healthy Food Guide Awards, and was a 2017 Outstanding NZ Food Producer Awards Finalist.
