About us

You might already know our beers, but have you met our diverse team yet? Although we’re from different backgrounds there are two things that unite us: a ‘smash it!’ mentality and a great passion for everything flavour. Curious to see who we are? Get to know us a bit better through our personal favourite botanicals. They might surprise you.

Nettle is my favourite botanical because I am sharp and (Dutch) direct, and like to think I have got a pointed plan. But please don’t let nettle’s feisty sting scare you as I have a soft side too, which generally deep down would like to help with everybody’s wellness. Oh and I make a mean soup too.

My favorite botanical is basil. Besides being the main flavor enhancer of one of my favorite cocktails, this herb has several other positive properties. Basil gives you confidence and loads of energy. It has a refreshing effect on the mind and it provides colour, aroma, and character in dishes and drinks.

My favorite botanical is cardamom. First of all, because it is in my favourite Lowlander beer (the 0.3% IPA), but also because there is a strong link with the old Roman Empire, which I have always read a lot about. In this context, I have learned that cardamom was the most popular herb at the time :)

I compare myself to an artichoke (flower). At first glance, it seems a bit closed and maybe a bit stiff, but layer by layer you get to see more. If you let an artichoke continue to grow, it develops into a beautiful flower, which you can (hopefully) compare with my final development at Lowlander.

While I lived in the Dominican Republic, I was called Mr. Chinola – because I ate a passion fruit every day, so it’s the Passion Fruit for me. A delicious sweet & sour fruit with endless culinary possibilities (also in beer!) and of course a nice climbing plant with beautiful flowers.

The botanical mint is my döppelganger. Mint does not need much to flower very quickly and everywhere. If you don’t pay attention, it will proliferate throughout your herb garden. A free and enthusiastic botanical, just like me, that you have to slow down every now and then.

I compare myself to a chili pepper, which goes well with both sweet & savory dishes. Have you ever tried combining it with olive oil? The longer you keep it, the stronger and better the flavour. And don’t forget: don’t rub your eyes afterwards, or it will remind you of its presence. Just like me.

Orange peel would be my preferred botanical, primarily used to accent the flavors of any drink. Oranges reflect my character; they are joyful due to their color and mostly sweet, but can be sharp in taste depending on how they are treated. An orange also reminds me of summer sunsets, and who doesn´t like those?

Calamansi is my spirit animal. Eh, botanical ;). Don’t be fooled by its teeny tiny appearance, because this little citrus is a bright and bold explosion of good vibes. It blends in very easily, adds that little extra to both food and drinks and its splashes of energy are pretty contagious.

I instantly think of Cinnamon. A complimentary addition to all things savoury and sweet, which can also take the lead with its flair and impact. Of course, I add a bit of creative spice within my role at Lowlander, and not to mention that Cinnamon was once more valuable than gold!

Lavender reminds me of my home country Croatia. This herb relieves stress and makes you calm and happy. It’s very easy-going and best paired with sweet & savoury dishes and other herbs, enhancing their taste in exciting ways. That’s also what describes me best, a flexible team-player with a calm and relaxed demeanour.

Of course, you expected that I would choose hibiscus. But as a born and raised resident of IJmuiden, I had to choose a sea product. Samphire is my favourite. It’s salty, slightly spicy, and lovely spinach-earthy notes. Awesome to cook with! Try a lemon risotto, with shrimps and samphire. Enjoy your meal!

My favourite botanical is hop, because I love beer! All jokes aside: I’d go for lemongrass, well known for its great use of teaming up with other spices. In other words, a true teamplayer! I’m social and I try to be just as cool as our Cool Earth Lager, which is full of lemongrass too!

Ginger is the botanical I would compare myself to. An incredibly hip and trendy taste! Nuf said. No Haha! A spicy botanical which can be a bit much for people. However, it is also a botanical that can be used anytime, anywhere. And because of the distinct taste, you know exactly what you’ve got.

I identify with a padron pepper because I get along with a wide range of people. But once in a while, a padron pepper can be a bit spicy, and sometimes I can be unexpectedly sharp too. Padron pepper is a common snack on islands like Ibiza. And snacking is one of my many talents. ;)

My go-to botanical would be vanilla. Its strong scent and flavour brightens up a lot of drinks and dishes. I’d say vanilla is everyone’s friend, which I believe I am too. Besides, most of vanilla’s perks and beauty can be found on the inside. Just like me :-).

If I was a botanical, I would see myself as a Sechuan Button. At first, you don’t see this blooming flower bud as something very special, but once you’ve tried it, you will experience a refreshing, interesting and almost an electric and tingling sensation with a surprisingly cooling effect.

My favourite botanical is the red pepper. It’s not only a tasty, versatile botanical, but it also represents warmth and power – which sounds like me! I like to balance between creating a warm environment while giving it my all . And last but not least: when I eat too much of it, I start looking like one too :-).

Is ginger a spice or a herb? All I know is that it has a fantastic flavour that can be used for various dishes and drinks. It can add depth and flavour to a dish and can be used for both savoury and sweet dishes. Do not underestimate the strength of ginger. A little bit can go a long way.

I would choose elderflower. It’s a pretty flower that is very easy to grow. It’s known for its medicine but can also be used in cocktails, recipes, beers and a lot more. As a person, I am very easygoing and I can adapt myself easily in different situations, just like the elderflower!

My favourite botanical is Eucalyptus, known for its healing powers and its strong refreshing taste. It has been a herbal medicine for centuries and is currently used in lozenges for soar throats. Just like Eucalyptus I am always there to help and be refreshing to others!
