Our Flavors

Blackberry mint

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, popular soda  fountains would serve drinks called ‘crushes’ that used real fruit  muddled in soda water. Using only 100% fruit in puree-form, we’re  bringing back an authentic and amazingly refreshing natural soda/juice  hybrid. A great beverage to enjoy on its own or mix with your favorite  spirit. Real blackberries and marrionberry varieties sorted and washed  in Oregon, and organic spearmint for a healthy and nutritious beverage  that sparkles and shines.

Squamish Legend “Raven, the Brave Warrior”- Raven’s sisters needed  someone strong to paddle the canoe to reach an area to pick  blackberries. When they reached that place, Raven lazily offered to  watch the canoe and any blackberries they store on the canoe while they  picked more. He grew hungry and ended up eating most of the blackberries  while his sisters were gone, and squeezed the juices of the rest of the  berries on himself to pretend an enemy attacked him and took all of the  gathered fruit.

Lemon Lime Lavender

 Organic lemon peel, lime and lemon juice, with a subtle kiss of  lavender and natural honey, it’s the perfect refreshing beverage to  enjoy on a mountain trail or mowing the lawn. In winter, serve warm for a  reminder of sunshine. Jade has grown up and worked around Utah’s  lavender fields his whole life, and the idea sprung from using real  lavender essential-oil from Mona and raw honey from Mapleton for a  refreshing take on a light citrus beverage. Blends well with local gin  for a surreal adult libation. 

Ute “Creation Story”- The Creator was a wolf who tasked his younger  brother, the Coyote, to carry a bag on a journey to the sacred grounds.  Consumed with curiosity, Coyote tears the bag slightly, and many twigs  fell out which began speaking different languages. Only a few twigs  remained in the bag which were brought to the sacred grounds and were  described to be the chosen people of the Utes. 

Lemongrass Ginger ale

Fresh ginger, lemongrass and local raw honey. A  mildly spicy ginger-kick accompanied by the bright and refreshing notes  of Thai lemongrass, slightly and healthily sweetened by raw honey for  health and prosperity. An award winning beer recipe from Jayson and Mike  now in soda form.

“The Laughing Place"- a story of Br’er Rabbit leading his perpetual  enemies and captors, Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear, to “The Laughing Place” –  which turns out to be a cavern of bees. While not the biggest or  strongest, Br’er rabbit uses his cunning to escape.
