Today, an unexpected yet exhilarating “green ingredient” is generating significant ripples in the marketherbal infusions. The infusion of herbs into both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages is morphing the market landscape while unveiling an expansive horizon for global consumers.

Surfing the Herbal Tidal Wave

According to the robust data from Global Beverage Report 2022, the herbal beverage market is poised to hit a global benchmark of $20 billion by 2024. The rising importance of health and wellness has seen an array of brands actively unlocking the therapeutic elements of herbs and launching exceptional products. Not to be left behind, the liquor industry is swiftly embracing this wave, emerging as a significant player in herbal beverage development.

Under the Microscope: Facts and Figures

Let’s pivot our focus to some practical demonstrations; the brands that successfully infiltrated this nascent market, launching ground-breaking herbal-infused beverage products:

  1. Lagunitas Hi-Fi Hops from Heineken shattered traditional norms by weaving hops and THC into a harmonic union. This zero-calorie, zero-alcohol herbal beer venture with HerbalCraft catapulted their sales figures by a whopping 13% in Q3, 2018 compared to the previous year.
  2. Two Roots Brewing Co, with its non-alcoholic herbal beer, clinched the widest market share in California, 2019, and saw their sales figures soaring by 30% the same year.
  3. Venice Cookie Company’s Cannabis Quencher is quenching the consumers’ thirst nationwide for the past three years with a variety of juices, each infused with 10mg of THC.
