deep in the amazon rainforest
GUIDED BY ANCIENT RITUALS AND SACRED PLANTS, WHERE ALL TRANSFORM WITH MUSIC AND DANCE. TOGETHER WE UNCOVER OUR PAST & REVOLUTIONIZE THE FUTURE.
JOIN THE WATCH, ENJOY THE NIGHT. TASTE THE JUNGLE.
a revolutionary organic energy drink that provides focus and power!
About seven years ago, after an adventurous journey deep into the jungle, we brought back a special plant from the Amazon rainforest named: Guayusa. Back in our lab we started to do research, performed many extractions and realized that it had a surprising energetic effect. The idea was born to make an all-natural energy drink using only herbs, fruits and flowers. An energy drink that actually tastes real instead of like bubble gum, an energy drink which makes you feel good, not unbalanced and shaky. One that is not only healthy for you, but also supports the rainforest and its inhabitants who help us grow and collect the leaves. This entire process also helps to preserve knowledge that the ancient cultures hold. Every sip leaves nothing but a positive footprint.

story of nightwatch
At Nightwatch we value a culture based on creativity and feel responsible for reSTORING balance with nature. Thatâ€™s why we create artistic, interactive and transformational experiences where people can enjoy, learn and PARTY in a conscious way.
The Nightâ€™s Watchmen Amazonian Quichua tribesman drink the eco super-herb Guayusa to sharpen their instincts when standing guard at night. They say Guayusa has cleansing properties, provides a longer life and helps overcome day-to-day challenges.
Developed together with the Quichua The Guayusa herb used is grown and harvested exclusively for Nightwatch at a sustainable forestry project that we set up together with the Quichua tribe.
Quetzalcoatl It is referenced to as the God of wind and learning. This mythical deity, from which its name roughly would be translated into 'feathered serpent', is the protector and spirit of the Amazon Rainforest. It happened to take its own place at Nightwatch...
In order to manifest the vision of Nightwatch we entered the realm of festivals (the Netherlands, Germany and France) in 2016 with ‘The Nightwatch Bar’. Since then we’ve travelled around festivals such as: Mandala (NL), Into the Woods (NL), Beyond (NL), Wildeburg (NL), Art Lake (DE), Feel Festival (DE) and Chateau Jolifanto (FR). The Nighwatchers are familiar figures in the culture in and around Amsterdam and also regularly find themselves at one-day events at, among others, Ruigoord, Pllek (Sterrenstof / Sinchi) and Radion (vierentwintiguurcultuur).
resonate with your true nature! The summer of 2017 was the first season in which pre-filled bottles were sold. Before that, Nightwatch was poured out as an extract and diluted with carbonated water. Through the medium of direct experience, Nightwatch tries to (re)connect visitors with the power of nature by celebrating life in a (more) mindful way. Our (interactive) area takes visitors into a world where Nighwatch is captured in every observable aspect and detail. Offering to learn more about body and mind, existence and the possibility of another approach to consumption. 8

green matters foundation
Green Matters Foundation helps indigenous people to independently generate an income with the knowledge and customs of their own culture. Together they devise which crops are best used for sustainable cultivation and stimulate this with the help of techniques from Austrian organic agriculture and materials. With these projects they want to show that in addition to humanitarian and ecological benefits, it also pays commercially to grow crops in a traditional way, participating in sustainable companies and by inspiring other organizations to do the same. Our modern (medical) knowledge is often very satisfactory, but we still have no answer to many problems. At the same time, sometimes thousands of years containing old empirical knowledge about body and mind, environment, and in particular medicinal herbs, is lost. When you realize that most of our modern medication is still a direct copy or derivative of a naturally occurring substance, we may also realize the importance of preserving it. - Aldo Hakman
