Global investment firm Canterbury Group has launched all-natural cannabis beverage company, Jamaican Brew House.

The company will be engaged in the production of beverages with benefits of cannabidiol (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and will be a portfolio company of Canterbury Group.

Canterbury Group founder and CEO Erin Winczura said: “We are excited to officially announce the launch of Jamaican Brew House and introduce our proprietary new botanical process to the beer industry.

“We saw a need in today’s current marketplace to create a great-tasting and natural cannabis product that could also be commercially distributed.”

Jamaican Brew House’s beverages are produced using a botanical process to create a neutral base, offering flavour and therapeutic benefits.

The base has been developed using cannabis harvested and refined in Jamaica, noted the company.

Jamaican Brew House’s cannabis beverage portfolio will include alcoholic and non-alcoholic beers, ciders and seltzers.

The investment company has appointed Jaime Jurado as Jamaican Brew House’s brewmaster, who will be responsible for leading product development.

Currently, the company is carrying out test productions. Once complete, Jamaican Brew House intends to release cannabis-infused beers, ciders and seltzers through commercial distribution in Canada and Jamaica, as well as other parts of the world where it is legal.

Jamaican Brew House will be engaged in the production of two different blends, one with CBD made from hemp containing only 0.3% THC and the other using marijuana plants, which will have a higher concentration of THC.

Canterbury Group has $6bn of assets under management and custody.
