Like many of us who grew up in the States, Mick, Brandon and Matt grew up drinking soda. Soda is uniquely American, and over the years, the bubbly beverage has become increasingly mass produced and not so good for you. Rather than giving up soda altogether, the longtime friends came up with the idea to create something better, something that was a little more grown up than the artificial beverage of their youth. With their backgrounds in craft cocktailmaking, the boys were comfortable working with fresh fruit, herbs and spices to mix up their aromatic sodas. Using some of the same equipment craft beer brewers use, each ingredient is juiced, steeped, stirred and combined in a pressurized tank. This step turns their sweet and savory concoctions into carbonated soda, to enjoy as-is or mixed with sprits for an extra-adult beverage.
