LONGMONT, Colo.— Left Hand Brewing and WAAYB Organics announced the upcoming launch of Present CBD-Infused Sparkling Water featuring all organic ingredients in three initial flavors: natural, lemon-lime and blood orange. Sprouting from Left Hand’s roots in brewing beer and WAAYB’s expertise in growing USDA Certified Organic hemp, Present is tended from seed to shelf in Northern Colorado and will be available for online ordering on August 12.
Present features 20mg of full spectrum CBD distillate from hemp grown at WAAYB’s USDA Certified Organic family farm in Northern Colorado. “We oversee the entire process from putting seeds into soil, to cultivation, harvesting, extraction and distillation,” says Scott Cusack, CEO of WAAYB Organics. “We firmly believe this is the only way to create CBD products our customers can trust.”
Left Hand Brewing will take their 25 years of knowledge from the beer industry and apply that to the growing CBD beverage industry with Present.
“At Left Hand, we always strive to put the best beverages possible out in the market – we’re committed to what’s best for beer and what’s best for the community,” says Eric Wallace, Co-Founder and President of Left Hand Brewing. “We look forward to offering an organic, zero-calorie option that’s free from artificial ingredients, additives or adaptogens and offers the same high standards and integrity of our beers.”
Community is of utmost importance to the Left Hand and WAAYB teams, so it comes as no surprise that the story of Present starts with community. “My father started farming the WAAYB farmland in the 1980’s and has visited the Left Hand taproom since they opened in 1994,” says WAAYB’s Co-Founder, Anson Mitchell. “The idea for an organic CBD beverage started while sharing some beers with Eric Wallace and it’s incredible to see that conversation evolve into a reality that consumers all over the country will enjoy.”
The combined effect of full spectrum CBD distillate and all organic ingredients, including Rocky Mountain water and organic essence, results in a premium CBD beverage the Present team is confident is best for the consumer. The Present team also includes Chris Lennert, Left Hand’s COO, as General Manager and Taylor Sarachek as Brand Manager, whose experience includes more than 10 years in the beverage industry.
Lennert added, “WAAYB Organic’s dedication to growing the highest quality, organic hemp paired with their expertise in distributing CBD products for more than two years was a perfect fit for the beverage experience we have at Left Hand Brewing.”
Present will be available for purchase online August 12 and in select Colorado retail locations later this summer. Follow along at drinkpresent.com and @drinkpresent.
