Karatina is a Kikuyu name for a "tree" that produces some fruits used to brew the famous Muratina beer, which was used by the Kikuyu to celebrate and perform rituals.  Within the vicinity of the factory, there is a town with the famous Karatina open air market and hotels that cater to visitors with a view of the snow-capped Mt. Kenya.

Fermentation is done with fresh river water from the Ragati river and then sundried on raised beds.
