Abnoba – a refreshing herbal beverage In a moment of tranquility and clarity, Abnoba, the Black Forest goddess of growth and fertility, spoke to us. People have become blind to her works, she said. As her messengers in the modern world, she called upon us to awaken the shrine of secrets that lay dormant. Abnoba bestowed upon us a gift. Boundless energy. A boundless energy that was meant to make you, the seekers, feel and sharpen your senses. This has become our mission. Our young, dynamic team of five disciples invites you to explore Abnoba, a 100% locally produced beverage. Designed to awaken the spirits of the Black Forest and deliver Abnoba's message, this beverage carries the essence and the elixir of the forest. With the power of regional forests, we look back and rediscover the ancient secrets of German forest herbs. In times long past, ground elder and nettle were highly valued as medicinal and culinary herbs. Today, unfairly largely dismissed as weeds, Abnoba lifts this veil of oblivion. With its strong herbal notes complemented by a woodsy aroma and earthy finish, Abnoba presents itself as a unique and innovative entry in the non-alcoholic carbonated beverage segment. These characteristics stem from the ingredients used, including ground elder, nettle, and fir syrup. Finally, a complex fermentation process lifts these flavors to new heights. Abnoba is a refreshing herbal beverage, which takes you on a journey through the enchanting flavors of nature.
