Brooklyn, NY (May 17, 2019) – Brooklyn Crafted, a line of craft beverages under parent company, Brooklyn Food & Beverage, is proud to announce the launch of two new beverage lines, Calamansi-Ade and Liang Cha Herbal Teas at the National Restaurant Association Show at McCormick Place in Chicago from May 17 – 21, 2019. The launch of these new and all-natural beverages comes on the heels of Brooklyn Crafted’s rebrand this past year as it continues to grow and expand its portfolio in the craft beverage industry.
“With consumers constantly on the lookout for beverages made with real and natural ingredients, we are thrilled to add Calamansi-Ade and the Herbal Tea Line to our growing line of products under Brooklyn Crafted,” said Marcia Hu, Marketing Manager of Brooklyn Food & Beverage. “As Brooklyn Crafted continues to grow and expand, we want to introduce our customers to a fresh take on craft beverages made with time-honored, global ingredients that are brewed locally here in our Bushwick factory with small-batch brewing methods. The result is a group of no-frills, all-natural, endlessly delicious beverages."
Similar to the other products featured under the Brooklyn Crafted line, the new products and flavors feature simple and natural ingredients, without compromising delicious taste. All five SKUs within the Calamansi-Ade line (Original, Mango, Ginger, Pomegranate, and Original Lite) are made from the calamansi fruit – a kumquat-mandarin hybrid that originally hails from Southeast Asia. It offers a distinct, citrus flavor with a refreshing balance of sweet and tart, while boosting the immune system, detoxifying the body, lowering cholesterol, and providing an abundance of antioxidants.
The new line of Herbal Teas is available in five unique flavors including, Brown Sugar Ginger Tea, Hawthorn Tea, Hibiscus Tea, Chrysanthemum Pear Herbal Tea, and Prunella Tea, and targets millennials who are seeking the health benefits of wellness teas in an accessible and convenient way.
All of the new product offerings are made and bottled at the company’s revamped bottling facility in Bushwick, NY and are non-carbonated, still beverages that serve as a modern rendition of global classics.
Priced between $1.50-$1.99 per bottle, the new Calamansi-Ade and Liang Cha Herbal Tea Lines are currently rolling out into stores within the New York market, with potential for national distribution later this year.
