How to pronounce Zeelandt

Abel Tasman and a bunch of keen sailors set out to discover the ‘Great Southern Land’. What they found was this little slice of heaven deep in the South Pacific.

Tasman was so impressed with what he saw on that summer’s day in 1642 that he described the country in his journal as ‘a very fine land’.

The country was later named Nieuw Zeeland after the maritime provence Zeelandt of The Netherlands.

Pronounced ‘Zay-Land’, Zeelandt literally means ‘Sea Land’.

Great name. Great Country. Great beer.
