Save fruit. Drink beer.
Lowlander has been brewing for years with herbs, spices and fresh fruit, or botanicals, each of which brings its own unique flavor. Now the botanical brewer is going one step further, launching a rotating assortment of fruit beers. Brewed with fruit and botanical ingredients added to a white beer base. This not only results in deliciously complex new flavor combinations without unnecessary additives, but also reduces food waste. "We all grow up with the luxury of enjoying fruits and vegetables year-round. But with this convenience comes excess: half of all fruit produced is wasted, according to the UN. As a botanical brewer, we like to contribute to building a better food system, so we consciously choose to use excess ingredients. This way you can literally taste how much flavor there is in fresh, natural ingredients that would otherwise go to waste," explains Chief Botanical Officer Frederik Kampman.
Does good and tastes good
This first edition brings the taste of spring: Leftover Lemon & Elderflower is brewed with elderflower and surplus lemons rejected by supermarkets. A lively and refreshing fruit beer, with a soft floral finish and the natural taste of fruit, with no added sugars or artificial fruit flavors. Besides fighting waste, this beer also combats climate change, as Lowlander, as a member of 1% For The Planet, donates 1% of sales to Trees for All through which they support sustainable forestry projects in the Lowcountry and beyond for a healthier climate. Lowlander Leftover Lemon & Elderflower is now on sale at Albert Heijn and in the Lowlander webshop from €2.21 (330ml bottle). Good to know: Each release contains a small batch based on how much surplus fruit is available, so gone is gone. The fruit beer summer edition is already in preparation.
