Over 140 years ago, the young brewer August Kuentzmann Damm emigrated from Alsace with his wife Melanie, fleeing the Franco-Prussian War. The journey took them to the Mediterranean coast, where they settled to fulfil their dream: to brew beer.
In 1876 they opened their own brewery and created a beer that was adapted to suit the Mediterranean climate. Lighter than central European beers that were designed for colder climates, we know it as Mediterranean lager.
Since then, Estrella Damm has been brewed following the original 1876 recipe, using only barley malt, rice, and hops. 100% natural ingredients, with no additives or preservatives.
Estrella Daura was launched in 2006. Since then it has won many prestigious international awards as the best gluten-free beer.
Daura is a golden colour with shades of amber and slight hints of green. It is clean and sparkling. The head is cream-coloured and long lasting. The abundant bubbles are delicate and lively. The generous aroma is of fresh spices. The flavours of toasted grains add to the beer"„¢s personality. The mouthfeel is smooth, thanks to the fine bubbles. Daura is a fresh-tasting beer, with a lively acidity. The finish is bitter, as it should be in beer, and long lasting.
