New producer Neitiv has launched the UK’s first coconut flower beer, in the form of a range of premium lagers.
The beer uses nutritious coconut flower drops as a key ingredient. Entirely vegan, it is sustainably produced in the UK and low in calories.
In the UK, only 17% of women drink beer,in comparison to 53% of men. That’s according to research by The Gender Pint Gap. Neitiv is on a mission to smash negative gender stereotypes and empower all people to enjoy beer without negative consequences.
The range comprises Ninkasi (sweet, with a rich coconut finish), Menquet (bright and light, with a hint of hops) and Dea Latis (crisp and soft, with a mild hoppy finish). ABVs range from 1.5% to 4%, with calories as low as 24/100ml.
High in protein and amino acids
The coconut flower drops contain more than 20 minerals and are high in protein and amino acids, as well as having a low glycemic index and calorie content.
Business co-founder, Vaani VetriKo, said: “As a woman from Malaysia, growing up I learnt that drinking beer was frowned upon and something I wasn’t able to enjoy. Neitiv was created to empower all people to enjoy great tasting beer.
“As part of this, we’re supporting projects such as All Yours Period Poverty as we want to enable people in all areas of their lives. We have exciting plans for the future, with new product launches and support for more projects that help to empower all people.”
