Craft beers inspired by five different cannabis terpenes — “Girl Scout Cookies”, “Pineapple Express”, “Mango Kush”, “Strawberry Diesel” and “Cheese”.
Old Boy used to be slang for beer in England in the 1700’s. And Mary Jane is slang for weed. And the beer names we picked from the map of Estonia and translated them into English verbatim.
Gypsy Tonic Water is a novel alternative to more traditional tonic waters when used in cocktails or being served on the rocks. A well-balanced quinine bitterness does not overpower the flavour of selected cannabis-inspired terpene blends that in turn add a new dimension to the flavour and aroma profiles of Gypsy Tonics Waters.
CLV Frontier Brands Pty Ltd are an international team gathered to develop and market a bespoke portfolio of cannabis and hemp derived alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages containing various ingredients, seeds, extracts and terpenes from hemp and cannabis plants.
Research and development work is underway in Switzerland, Estonia and the UK on a premium craft beer range containing unique terpenes mixes mimicking the terpenes of the cannabis plant.
Further research and development will identify other opportunities within the legal framework of the target markets, which focus on a range of premium beers containing cannabis and hemp derived components. CLV Frontier Brands plan to expand their portfolio into other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. We only market and sell our products with full compliance with local market regulations and only after securing all appropriate regulatory approvals.
Terpenes are essential oils (organic compounds) found in plants that carry flavour and aroma. The terpenes in the beer will carry the characteristic odour and fragrance of cannabis with the same taste and feel but will not contain THC or CBD or any other cannabinoids. The terpene mixes used to formulate the beers will have the smell and aroma of cannabis but, they originate from other plants mimicking the special mixtures. This is a huge advantage as it gets around the issue of regulatory restrictions. Terpenes are safe molecules and are recognized as GRAS (“GRAS” = Generally Recognized as Safe) as attested by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifying them as Food Additives, and by the Food and Extract Manufacturers Association and other world regulatory bodies classifying them as Safe. (see WHO1/ FEMA GRAS2).
