Khukuri beer (sponsor’s message):
Khukuri is Britain’s only distinctive, flavorsome and easy drinking lager beer which celebrates the pride and teamwork of the bravest Nepalese and British. Because only Khukuri is a golden lager with a great depth of flavour, brewed using pure water from the Lake District. The brand takes its name from the traditional knives used in battle by the Nepalese Gurkhas, a brave brigade of soldiers serving in the British army for nearly 200 years and which still used today by the proud, hospitable Nepalese in the homes and countryside of the world’s most mountainous country.
The Khukuri brand Monty ‘Bahadur’ Shrestha the founder is a Nepalese restaurateur and brought Nepalese food to the UK and Ireland 45 years ago. In 2003 he launched a Nepalese beer in Britain to celebrate the deep friendship between Nepal and Britain. He called it Khukuri after the famous fighting knife used for over 200 years by the Gurkhas, the Nepalese soldiers who, since 1816 continue to serve alongside the British army. They are known as the bravest of the brave.
Khukuri is enjoyed in over 10 countries around the world. In the UK you can find Khukuri in a small number of Nepalese and Indian restaurants where it is a favourite quality alternative to the usual brands
