Ayrloom is New York’s first weed beverage to hit the legal market

New York’s first legal cannabis beverages went on shelves Thursday, when Housing Works Cannabis Co in Manhattan began selling ayrloom’s THC-infused sparkling water.

Ayrloom – a suite of products that include beverages, edibles and vapes – is owned by Gen 5 Labs, which is owned by the family that operates Beak & Skiff, a well-known Central NY apple orchard that also makes and sells CBD products, and alcoholic beverages under their 1911 brand.

Beak and Skiff CFO Mack Hueber said the company is putting a lot of its energy and focus on cannabis-infused beverages, because they think it’s a segment of the weed industry that’s ripe for growth.
