About Huski

Huski is all about delivering the very best drinking experience possible, by creating world-class innovative performance drinkware that keeps drinks ice-cold or piping hot for hours. No matter what you’re drinking - beer, wine, coffee, tea, water, kombucha - Huski has you covered.

Our hero products are the multi-award winning Huski Wine Cooler, and the newly redesigned Huski Beer Cooler 2.0. These hand-held insulated stainless steel coolers keep your wine beautifully chilled and your beer ice-cold until the last drop.

Huski products are sold to consumers via our website huski.co.nz and through a network of 100+ retail partners across New Zealand. Huski products are also available through New Zealand loyalty platforms including Airpoints and Flybuys. Internationally we currently sell on Amazon.com and Amazon.com.au, as well as our US website huskicoolers.com.

With the ambition of growing the Huski brand both here at home and internationally, we’re on the search for a team member that is passionate about providing customers with the absolute best experience possible.
