As much as we'd love to claim a long and prestigious New Zealand heritage, for Kubb Brothers, it all started in 2012, at a music festival, in Europe.
It was here, over a warm beer in a plastic cup, George Coltart – Kubb Brother Number One, discovered the little-known, largely-loved Swedish lawn game. He then returned to Hawkes Bay and showed the game to his younger brother Freddie – Kubb Brother Number Two.
Being the keen croquet and pétanque player that he was, Freddie was right into it. So, with the help of their older brother Sam – Kubb Brother Number Three, and dad – Kubb "Brother" Number Four, the boys crafted their first set in the family workshop.
Multiple prototypes and a few more beers later, they arrived at a design they decided not only played nice, but looked nice too.
Using sustainable NZ Elm, teak finishing oil and a family heritage of quality design and building, the result is a level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that ensures a premium experience with every use. One that will be cherished for many years (and games) to come.
Just watch your shins.
