While working in a gin distillery in the united kingdom i fell in love with the use of botanicals in distilling and the fascinating world of cocktails. Having basically grown up in beer in the netherlands i guess it was only natural that i started wondering what would happen if you would brew rather than distil with these botanicals. I grew curious about what kind of character these herbs, spices and fruits could give to beer.
To my surprise i discovered that the lowlands actually have a very intriguing history where it comes to brewing with botanicals. As dutch explorers travelled the globe they returned home with cargos brimming with precious herbs and exotic spices, which soon made their way into dutch beer.
And so the idea for lowlander beer was born.
My dream is to expand people’s horizon when it comes to beer. And with our botanically brewed lowlander beer i want to put the lowlands back on the map for great tasting beers full of both flavour and character.
