CAPE CORAL, FLORIDA, USA, September 20, 2023/ — Botanical Brewing Co. has launched Lychee Bomb, the first-ever kanna drink on tap in the U.S., the company announced today.

“We didn’t set out to completely change an industry, but that’s what happens when you’re focused on innovation,” says Jacqueline Rusher, CEO of Botanical Brewing Company and Kava Culture in Cape Coral, FL. “The introduction of kanna to the non-alcoholic beverage industry is going to make some serious waves. Talk about a plant buzz!”

Kanna is a South African flowering succulent plant. Botanical Brewing Co. is crafting 4 different types of drinks with kanna: Uplifting, Balanced, Heavy, and a Triblend mix of all three. The company boasts the mood-enhancing effects from all of its non-alcoholic drinks, and kanna is no different. From energy and love to relaxation and bliss, kanna is meant to deliver elevated feelings without alcohol to those 18 and older.

Lychee Bomb is a Triblend kanna with ingredients such as apple juice, monk fruit, and natural lychee flavors, that brings feelings of pure bliss. James Jones, master brewer at Botanical Brewing Co, is elated to be a part of a new beverage category.

“It is really cool that we have the chance to be the first to put kanna into a drink form,” says Jones. “Ready-to-drink alcohol alternatives are at the forefront of the industry, and we pride ourselves on being leaders and innovators, infusing new plant compounds with amazing new flavors.”

Lychee Bomb is available in kegs to wholesalers and retailers online. It’s also on tap at the Botanical Brewing Taproom in Cape Coral and all Kava Culture Kava Bar locations.
