Water Spotlight: Aura Bora Lauches a line of Sparkling Water Products


Herbal Beverage Brand Launches and Expands Distribution, from the Land to Your Hand, With Over 300 Natural Retailers

SAN FRANCISCO, June 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Can you imagine drinking a cactus or a freshly picked bouquet? How about sipping on the most aromatic herbs and plants on the planet? An herbal sparkling water is finally here, bringing clean labels, good feelings, and delightful tastes to consumers across the country. Meet Aura Bora, a craft sparkling water made from real herbs, fruits, and flowers, rejecting the conventional flavors of mainstream seltzers.

The San Francisco-based brand was created by sparkling water fanatics, Paul and Madeleine Voge. In their search for soda alternatives, they realized the market was filled with mediocre flavors, tired branding, and artificial ingredients. So, they began experimenting with a home carbonator and some crushed herbs to create truly unique flavors.

"It all started when my wife, Madeleine, and I were just messing around with our SodaStream," said Paul, now CEO and Co-Founder of Aura Bora. "We happened to have all these herbs and botanicals in our pantry. One thing led to another, and Aura Bora was born. It turns out when you combine real herbal extracts and sparkling water you get vivid flavors, floral aromas, and a more natural taste. Finally, consumers can enjoy beverages tailor-made to their palates. Sparkling water aficionados find solace in an escape from the norm."

The brand's pairing of herbs and fruits sets Aura Bora apart from other sparkling waters. The first five varieties are Cactus Rose, Lavender Cucumber, Peppermint Watermelon, Basil Berry, and Lemongrass Coconut. On top of the glorious tastes, Aura Bora is sugar-free, calorie-free, and sodium-free. Each plant-based variety is made with Non-GMO ingredients for an elevated sparkling water experience.

In addition to the appeal of innovative flavors, Aura Bora's branding has been a massive draw for consumers. Aura Bora partnered with Boulder-based creative agency Moxie Sozo to craft their unique look. Co-Founder and Creative Director, Madeleine Voge, drew inspiration from the Earth's natural wonders for their breathtaking packaging. Each can features whimsical illustrations including owls, crocodiles, porcupines, sloths, and chameleons to emphasize the earth-inspired ingredients and playful brand personality. "Having worked in the creative field for years, I knew our cans could be tributes to the ingredients inside them. The colors, landscapes, and cheeky haikus on each can help Aura Bora jump off the shelves the first time, and the taste sells the product each time thereafter."

Since its launch in January 2020, the brand has expanded to over 300 natural retailers across the country. The brand is sold via local DSDs in Colorado and Northern California, as well as national distributors, KeHE and UNFI. "We're blown away by how much Aura Bora has grown just in its first six months," said Paul. "As we expand into other retailers, we know Aura Bora will continue to stand out in new markets, even in this competitive arena."

Aura Bora's five varieties, Cactus Rose, Lavender Cucumber, Peppermint Watermelon, Basil Berry, and Lemongrass Coconut are available at select retailers and range in price per location from $1.99 to $2.29 per 12 fl oz can. Aura Bora 12-count single flavor and variety packs are also available for $30 with free shipping through their website.

About Aura Bora

With no added sweeteners, zero calories, and no artificial flavors, it’s a sparkling beverage you can feel good about drinking! And its bitter character is surprisingly refreshing, has a cleansing effect on your palate and provides a host of well-documented benefits for your digestive health. Scroll down to discover more.

Bartlett pear and ginger root come together in a panache of flavor! Compliments middle eastern and asian cuisine or any dish with soy sauce. Perfect in a moscow mule or any cocktail that calls for ginger or ginger beer.

Bitters, or amari as they are known in Italy, have been enjoyed in Europe for centuries, most notably as aperitif or digestif liqueurs. Cocktail bitters were also immensely popular in 19th and early 20th century America as a key ingredient in the perfectly crafted cocktail. Today, craft mixologists have rediscovered this indispensable ingredient that make their imbibing creations true works of art.

Specifically, bitters have been shown to:

• Prime the digestive system by stimulating enzyme production
• Soothe gas and bloating
• Relieve heartburn, upset stomach and nausea

About Vitamin Well
Vitamin Well was founded in 2006 by Swedish entrepreneurs, with the aim to broaden the range of healthy beverages. Up until then, there had been a noticeable lack of modern, healthy alternatives to sodas and juices. A contrast to both US and Asian markets where the range of drinks was much broader. We found drinks with less calories and healthy ingredients such as tea extracts, vitamins and minerals that inspired us.

Having failed to find a beverage that tasted good, was less sweet than existing products and contained enough beneficial nutrients, we decided to develop a drink that was completely new in everything from taste and ingredients to the design.

Water Spotlight: Hint Fizz Watermelon


Fizz is breaking soda’s grip on America. The world, it turns out, is sharply divided into those who like sparkling water and those who prefer still water. When we launched Hint water back in 2004, we immediately heard from happy fans who we had freed from the boredom of plain water. But we also got an earful from die-hard soda drinkers who craved something more. Today, we're proud to introduce Hint FIZZ. Outstanding unsweetened refreshment - now with bubbles - finally, an alternative to soda, without the diet sweeteners. To a world that is sharply divided, we offer this simple message: Set aside your differences, go out and play, and remember to Drink Water, Not Sugar


Sparkling water lightly flavored with watermelons for a fizzy, delicious and refreshing beverage
Made without preservatives or any artificial ingredients
Zero calorie flavored water made without sugar, diet sweeteners
Vegan and gluten free with no GMOs
Made in the United States


About the Company

despite living in a city focused on great tasting food and healthy living, san francisco’s Kara Goldin was amazed that she couldn’t find a delicious and refreshing drink for her or her family.

not one that didn’t have any diet sweeteners, sugars or other “functional” stuff added to it, anyway.

so, since plain water didn’t always quench that thirst for tasty refreshment, Kara created hint.

The idea behind hint is simple: Pure spring water + a splash of natural flavor

• no sugar

• no diet sweeteners

• no preservatives, additives or anything else that you can’t pronounce

by taking nature’s original refreshment as the main ingredient and enhancing it with just a splash of delicious natural flavor, hint is a refreshing alternative to sodas, juices and other sweetened drinks without the empty calories or diet sweeteners.

as one of the fastest growing beverages in the US, our drinkers now have a water that makes their mouth water.
