Like its sibling Cicero, Dr Dragica Kralj at the Hop Research Institute in Zalec, Slovenia originally selected Cekin in the 1980’s. It is a cross between Aurora and a Yugoslav male. It is not currently grown in large quantities commercially due to a lack of interest from breweries. Its vigor and yield are great in Slovenia but to date it has not proven itself in Corvallis test plots in the US. It is said to have a pleasing, distinctive and continental aroma comparable to Styrian Golding.
