Amathus Drinks has announced a new UK partnership with Greek craft beer brand Septem.

Septem beer is a range of premium unpasteurised craft beers produced at a microbrewery in Orologio, situated on Evia, the second largest island in Greece. Septem, which means seven in Latin, was founded in 2007 by chemist/ winemaker Sophocles Panagiotou and his brother George.

The pair adopted the same oenological philosophy to beer making by regarding the hop as the ‘grape’ of beer. The beers are deliberately unpasteurized to maintain the freshness, aromas and flavours of the hops.

Harry Georgiou, founder and managing director of Amathus, said: “We are very excited about the opportunity to introduce the Septem beer range to the UK. These exceptional beers offer consumers an attractive choice of styles to suit all tastes and occasions, and we believe that they represent the highest standards of craft beer available internationally, putting Greek craft beer firmly on the global map.”
