CAN 02


Sour cherry, black currant buds, young pine cones, walnut wood.


Just crack it open.

Our cans now come in multipacks. Please select your preferred size directly in the cart.


Effervescent, enlivening, fruity... Walnut wood gives a sturdy depth to the notes of zesty sour cherry, aromatic black currant buds and lemony maqaw pepper.

Not a cocktail. Not a beer. Not a hard seltzer.

Our cans are an expression of what we do; a blend of the different methods of fermentation, maceration, distillation and extraction we’ve come up with throughout the years.

CAN 02 happened because of Chris' obsession for fruit beers that have been aged in wood and more particularly Kriek beers. Chris had hop vinegar involved for this one for a while - it stayed in till almost the end, it was so close to being the right ingredient but it didn’t quite work.

It so happened that during this time Chris had got some young pine cones from Germany and had been making kombucha with them. The day we were due to sign off the can after maybe 50 different trials and a shit ton of stuff, he checked his kombucha and asked Lars to taste it. To which he replied "can you do another version of the can with this?"

We tried to sign off the can again a few days later, but then Sasha happened to get hold of a Maqaw pepper. Chris put some in alcohol and Lars tasted it and was like, "this is it".
