Tío Gazpacho Provides Ultimate Chill at the 14th Annual South Beach Food and Wine Festival



Miami Beach, FL (Feb 16, 2015) –  Can you imagine drinking the freshest chilled gazpacho out of a bottle? Tío Gazpacho can, and in fact, the company will be serving up samples of its award-winning chilled organic soups at the South Beach Food and Wine Festival, one of America’s most prestigious gourmet gatherings.


Based in Miami Beach, Tío Gazpacho will be right at home at this internationally renowned event where the company will showcase its three gazpacho soup varieties to more than 60,000 expected attendees as part of the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village.


A highly anticipated feature of the festival, the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village provides a one-of-a-kind experience for attendees to sample locally produced food products, gourmet cuisine, unique wines and tasty spirits right on the beach.


"The timing of this event couldn't be better and we are excited to be part of the Whole Foods Village," said Austin Allan, Founder of Tío Gazpacho. The company received a boost in December when it was recognized by industry peers at BevNET, the leading conference for the beverage trade. Tío Gazpacho was voted Audience Favorite and overall Winner of BevNET's New Beverage Showdown 8 (8th edition), and also took home the award for Best Smoothie/Meal Replacement of 2014.


"After being honored at BevNET, we felt that participating in this iconic consumer event would create an opportunity to share our products with a larger audience," said Austin.


Top food and wine experts and personalities from around the world will be featured throughout the show. This year's celebrity lineup includes Trisha Yearwood, Rachel Ray, Emeril Lagasse and Guy Fieri, among other internationally recognized chefs.

About Tío Gazpacho: Unapologetically cold. Deliciously bold.
The original savory gazpacho soup, blended with fresh, nutritious ingredients, boasts an exotic history with influences from Greece, Italy and Africa, and finally perfected in Spain. Tío Gazpacho takes this classic chilled mash-up and turns it on its head, with three bold, delicious variations - all organic and alive with flavor. Perfect for a healthy snack or lunch on the go. Ready to drink straight from the bottle. No bowl required™.

Tío is a new concept in refreshment and nutrition; it brings all the flavors and health benefits of Mediterranean eating to American consumers with a line of drinkable gazpachos. All crafted recipes are Certified USDA Organic, vegetarian and vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants - and they are free of preservatives, colors, artificial flavors and additives of any kind, and are never heat pasteurized.

The three fresh flavors include:

  • gazpacho clásico: Creamy and complex, with bright flavors from vine-ripened tomatoes, cucumber, green pepper and olive oil.
  • gazpacho verde: A rich blend of kale, spinach, cucumber and avocado with freshly picked mint, jalapeno, cumin and black pepper.
  • gazpacho de sol: A sweet summer variety that owes its distinctive color to yellow tomatoes, fresh carrot juice and yellow bell peppers.

Beer drone will deliver brews at S. African music festival

There's no word yet on what will happen if the parachuting beer drifts downwind and disappears into a mosh pit.

Not all innovations that combine booze and technology are good ideas. Consider, for example, the Buddy Cup.
Developed by Budweiser's Brazilian division, the cup's microchip links to your Facebook profile and broadcasts a new "friend" update each time you clink your Buddy Cup with someone as you stagger around a boozy keg party.
Some critics, however, have called this combination of alcohol-fueled recklessness and social media "terrifying."
But every once in a while, someone comes up with an idea that restores our faith in mankind and technology. Consider, for example, the Oppikoppi Beer Drone.
