Crowdfunding NOW!


What?  Health-conscious alcohol?  Yes.  And a lifestyle to go with it.

Starting with water from California's High Sierra mountains, we take whole-leaf organic tea, a blend of raw, organic sugars, and the very best fruits, herbs, ginger, spices and hops, and craft a beverage that's naturally gluten-free, probiotic, and 5-10% alcohol.

Incredibly fresh, delightful to drink, and packed with health-enhancing nutrients.

Love begins with fully (and radically) accepting people and circumstances exactly the way that they are and exactly the way that they’re not.  This is not giving up.  It takes great courage and integrity.  Standing in “all is perfect”, we lovingly give ourselves over to that which inspires, touches, moves, and fulfills us.


We recognize and appreciate the interconnectedness of all things.  We strive to be empowering and honoring to all of earth’s creatures.  We foster open communication, collaboration, and a team-oriented dynamic.  And we are deeply grateful for the opportunity and fully accept whatever we get.


Creating something good is worthwhile.  Creating something awesome is divine.  We are out to awe, amaze, inspire, delight, and fulfill.  For this we must constantly innovate.  For this we must lead and create.  For this we must tap into the true, unfathomable, power that lies within us all, and just let that sh*t flow.


We stand for a world that works, where people trust each other, work together and thrive in community.  For this we need Integrity: Nothing hidden, being open and honest.  Doing what we say we will, what we know to do, and what others expect of us.  And when we fall short, dealing with the impact and cleaning it up.  :-)
