Entourage Health Corp., a Canadian producer and distributor of award-winning cannabis products and The Boston Beer Company, Inc., (BBC) maker of iconic, high-quality brands such as Samuel Adams, Truly Hard Seltzer and Twisted Tea, are pleased to announce the Canadian debut of ‘TeaPot’, a new line of cannabis-infused iced tea beverages. Developed and formulated alongside Boston Beer’s cannabis subsidiary BBCCC Inc., and Windsor-based Peak Processing Solutions (“Peak”), TeaPot is BBC’s first infused beverage offering which will be available in select Canadian provinces commencing July 2022.
TeaPot blends real tea with unique cannabis cultivars to give each TeaPot blend a pairing that is cleverly named to correlate with specific times of the day. The brand’s first release is a ‘Good Day Iced Tea’, made with real-lemon black tea and infused with Pedro’s Sweet Sativa, a distinguished cultivar grown and sold exclusively by Entourage under its Color Cannabis retail brand. Each 12-ounce (355ml) can of TeaPot contains 5mg of THC and is crafted to minimize any cannabis taste or aroma. TeaPot will introduce additional varietals in the coming months.
“We congratulate our partners at The Boston Beer Company on the exciting launch of TeaPot – a unique iced tea crafted with natural flavours and infused with our most distinguished cultivars that we expect will land as the best cannabis-infused beverages in Canada,” said George Scorsis, CEO and Executive Chairman, Entourage.
“The BBC team has a storied history and pedigree for producing some of the most beloved craft beverages in North America and we’re thrilled to be introducing yet another consumption method for the canna-curious consumer and growing self-care market. Together, our consumer-savvy, quality-driven approach to product development has made for a complementary collaboration alongside Peak, our processing and bottling partner, ensuring every beverage is prepared with the highest care and excellence. TeaPot will be an instant hit this summer as it debuts in select provinces starting in July, with eventual nationwide distribution expected throughout the year.”
Since 2020, Canada’s cannabis-infused beverage market share has increased by nearly 850%(1), and is approximately twice the size of the U.S. cannabis beverage market, according to a recent report from Headset retail data (March 2022). BBC with its branding and craft beverage expertise; Peak with its robust manufacturing and processing experience; and Entourage with its strong Canadian marketing-sales distribution network are together establishing a partnership that is well-suited to capture a significant portion of this addressable cannabis-beverage market.
In 2021, BBC, Peak and Entourage entered into development, supply, manufacturing, marketing and sale agreements to develop cannabis-infused beverages using Entourage’s cannabinoid-rich input biomass cultivated at its centre-of-excellence in Strathroy-Ontario. The biomass is processed and formulated into beverages at Peak’s state-of-the-art Windsor, Ontario facility. Entourage is also the exclusive distributor of the cannabis-infused beverages in Canada leveraging its expansive local sales and marketing network on behalf of BBC.
