Nautilus Launches Nicotine Beer: “NicoShot”, A New Brew Designed To Help Drinkers Stop Smoking
June 06, 2005 Lifestyle News(PRLEAP.COM) STUTTGART, Germany, — Nautilus GmbH Laboratoriumsbedarf announced today the
recent European launch of NicoShot™, the world’s first smoking-cessation beer
containing a shot of natural nicotine, about what you would get in a couple of regular filtered cigarettes. NicoShot is brewed to the German Purity Law of 1516 and contains 3 milligrams of naturally derived nicotine alkaloids, 63 calories and 4.5 carbohydrates, with
6.3% alcohol by volume per 250 ml shot can. The cutting-edge nicotine beer is fire brewed separately and a standardized herbal extract of natural tobacco leaf (Nicotiana tabacum L.) of the Solanaceae nightshade family is added at the end of the natural
NicoShot is cigarette satisfaction in a beer without the smoke. For most smokers, three
cans of NicoShot is comparable to an entire pack of conventional cigarettes. Best of all,
there’s none of the tar or carbon monoxide the comes from burring tobacco. Similar to
nicotine gum, NicoShot is considered nicotine replacement therapy that provides a steady,
controlled release of nicotine. It can be used to relieve withdrawal symptoms at the
beginning of quitting, to relieve urges from cigarette smoke (cravings) while quitting, or
to avoid relapse months after quitting when a new stress or situation may trigger a strong
urge to smoke. While NicoShot can lessen cravings, it is not a ‘cure’ for smoking. But it
can help you make changes in your lifestyle without having to walk out of the bar for a
quick smoke to deal with sudden withdrawal symptoms. Over time, when you are more
comfortable being a nonsmoker, the use of nicotine beer can be reduced and then stopped.
Sweden is the latest European country to ban smoking in restaurants, bars and cafes, but
Swedish smokers may find some reprieve in the European Court of Justice ruling which
allows for sales of nicotine patches and nicotine gum from outlets other than the state run
pharmacy monopoly, Apoteket. The loophole may also allow for distribution of other new
prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications including nicotine enhanced beer.
“NicoShot is a smoking-cessation brew designed to satisfy the nicotine urge whenever
you want a cigarette, but can’t smoke — providing a realistic way to quit smoking,” says
Richard H. Davis, President of Beverage Marketing USA, Inc., “NicoShot is a nicotine
enhanced beer that can significantly control cigarette cravings, yet it taste like a fine
imported European beer, but instead it gives you that extra shot of nicotine,” said Davis.*
