America’s Cup Inspired Items Sail onto Macca’s Menu

As New Zealand has begun to rally behind Emirates Team New Zealand on their quest to win the America’s Cup in home waters, McDonald’s New Zealand have dived straight into cup fever by launching three mouth-watering new burgers that are only available on our fair shores.

The extra special range joins the ranks of other legendary burgers created to celebrate global sporting events and local cuisine, including the McBrasil, complete with special green mayonnaise especially for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and the Prosperity Burger released only in China for Chinese New Year.

Set to get Kiwis into the sailing spirit, the Sailor’s Double Beef, Skipper’s Spicy Chicken or Foiling Crispy Fish are available from today for a limited time only.

Each burger has its own unique twist:

Sailor’s Double Beef includes two juicy beef patties, crispy onions, beetroot, and smoky BBQ sauce.

Skipper’s Spicy Chicken has mouth-watering chicken, crunchy slaw, and spicy mayo.

Foiling Crispy Fish with NZ-caught hoki fillet, slaw, lettuce, and tartare sauce.

“As Emirates Team New Zealand Family Partner, we wanted to give our crew of Kiwis the chance to enjoy a range of burgers that are uniquely New Zealand, with familiar ingredients perfect for the summer months,” said McDonald’s NZ Managing Director, Dave Howse.

“Having the America’s Cup Regatta at home is a special time for New Zealand, and what better way to celebrate than with a limited-edition burger.”

The new burgers are joining the Emirates Team New Zealand range available at McDonald’s restaurants nationwide and through McDelivery.
