By popular demand: a set of 6 brand new Lowlander glasses, 33cl. Just like us full of life and botanicals and with a bit of ingenuity. The Lowlander O, a plimsoll, is etched on the inside bottom of our new glass, called nucleation*. This nucleation point facilitates the release of the beer’s carbonation, creating a steady stream of bubbles and maintaining a head on the beer. So top up and enjoy!
New glass 6-pack 33cl
No less than 152 (!) optional names were written down by our founder Frederik before he decided on Lowlander as the right name for our beers (it’s true, he still has the list).
It does make sense though: with much of its land below sea level The Netherlands – literally the low lands – became a nation of seafarers, returning with precious herbs and spices that found their way into beer. Which leads us to a question we often get about the letter “O” in Lowlander. Commonly mistaken with the Scandinavian letter Ø, it actually represents a plimsoll: a symbol found on ships, marking the weight of the ship and limit to which it may be loaded.
With our brand new glass, the plimsoll is etched on the inside bottom of our new glass, called nucleation. This nucleation point facilitates the release of the beer’s carbonation, creating a steady stream of bubbles and maintaining a head on the beer. Makes sense now, right?
* Wash the glasses well before use as new from the box the nucleation point can release minuscule non-harmful particles.
