Why are Free Damm and Free Damm Limón alcohol-free beers?

Why are Free Damm and Free Damm Limón alcohol-free beers?

Our Free Damm and Free Damm Limón beers have been officially classified as 0.0% alcohol by volume. We make them using the same ingredients that we use to brew an alcoholic beer, by adding yeast and letting fermentation produce alcohol naturally. Then, using an advanced technique that we call vacuum distillation, we remove the alcohol until we obtain a product that is 0.0% alc./vol.

What happens to a beer when it passes its best before date? Can it still be drunk?

What happens to a beer when it passes its best before date? Can it still be drunk?

Beer is a product that over time loses its organoleptic properties. In other words, its flavour and appearance start to change, as it can become cloudy and darker. This alteration can be of varying intensity, depending on the storage time, conditions and temperature. In any case, an old beer containing alcohol might have a cloudy appearance and an unpleasant taste, but it is never unhealthy for consumers, because, with beer containing alcohol, pathogenic microorganisms do not develop because of its pH, the almost total lack of oxygen, the degree of alcohol and the presence of hops. The date printed on the label is a best before date, it is not an expiry date, so you can drink a beer after the date has passed, but, based on what we have just said, we recommend that beer is consumed as fresh as possible.

What are the ideal conditions to store beer?

What are the ideal conditions to store beer?

Keep it in a cool and dry location. Protect it from light. Keep it stored between 0 and 20ºC.

How long does it take to brew an Estrella Damm beer?

How long does it take to brew an Estrella Damm beer?

On average from 7-9 months, with the process divided into the following phases:

Barley cultivation: 5-7 months

Malt: 1 months

Making of the beer mash: 8 hours

Fermentation: 7 days

Storage: At least 2 weeks

What is considered a low mineralised water?

What is considered a low mineralised water?

It is considered that a water is low mineralised when the dry residue (content of mineral salts) is less than 500mg/l.

What difference is there between a natural mineral water and other kinds of bottled water?

What difference is there between a natural mineral water and other kinds of bottled water?

Natural mineral waters are microbiologically healthy waters with an underground origin, which can be distinguished from other ordinary drinking waters by:

-   Their natures, defined by their content of minerals, trace metals and other ingredients that they have acquired depending on the type of rocks they flow over.
-   Their chemical resistance. This is confirmed by the competent authority before granting the name, by carrying out 12 regular tests over a year. This requirement means that natural mineral waters have to include a quantitative chemical analysis on the label that lists its characteristic ingredients. (in the case of bottled drinking waters, the inclusion of the chemical analysis on the label is prohibited).
-   Their original purity. This is also confirmed through the aforementioned series of analytical tests.

These characteristics are maintained intact, because the underground origin of the water has naturally protected it from all risks of contamination.

What are the storage and correct use instructions for the product?

What are the storage and correct use instructions for the product?

-    Keep it in a cool, clean, dry location.
-    Protect it from direct sunlight and strong smells.
-    For your safety, the bottle should not be re-used.
-    Demand that it is opened in your presence.
-    Once opened, it should be stored in a cool place and consumed within two or three days of opening.

When is the best before date, and where can I find it?

When is the best before date, and where can I find it?

The best before date printed in each batch is two years from the bottling date.

Depending on the container, you can find it:
-    Glass bottles: the best before date and the batch number are shown on the back label.
-    PET bottles: the best before date and the batch number will be printed by laser in the area immediately above or below the label, on the shoulder or on the base of the bottle.

Why should PET water bottles for DAMM brands not be re-used?

Why should PET water bottles for DAMM brands not be re-used?

-    The bottles for our brand have been designed to be used once (just like any other PET bottle), and have been designed to contain our brand’s natural mineral water, guaranteeing the integrity and quality of the water throughout its useful life, until the best before date.
-    Any incorrect handling or use of the bottle other than for what it has been designed could lead to undesirable consequences.

Are Veri and Fuente Liviana waters suitable for low-sodium diets?

Are Veri and Fuente Liviana waters suitable for low-sodium diets?

Yes. One of the most distinctive features of the excellent quality of Fuente Liviana/Veri water is its low sodium content. That is why it is especially suitable for low-sodium diets.

Are Veri and Fuente Liviana suitable to prepare children’s food?

Are Veri and Fuente Liviana suitable to prepare children’s food?

Yes. Royal Decree 1798/2010 on bottled waters permits the mention of "Suitable for the preparation of children’s food” on the label, although it does not define the criteria based on contents.

A study commissioned by Damm and conducted by the Professional School of Medical Hydrology and Hydrotherapy of the Faculty of Medicine of the Complutense University in Madrid, following the criteria of the Spanish Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, concludes that they are suitable for the preparation of children's foods.

Which are the VERI springs?

Which are the VERI springs?

VERI natural mineral water is collected from three springs that VERI owns (VERI 1, VERI 4 and VERI 5) and although they are three different water sources they belong to the same geological unit, with similar hydrogeological behaviour and the same type of rocks, which means there is only a slight difference in terms of their water composition. The three springs are low in sodium and all have the same high Veri quality.
