Spindrift is proud to be the producer of the first and only sparkling water made with real fruit. Our water is triple-filtered, and we source our fruit from family farms before squeezing and canning the fresh juice within days of harvest. The result is light, bright, and slightly pulpy beverages.
Our founder Bill Creelman grew up on a farm in Western Massachusetts where food was unprocessed, seasonal and fresh. Faced with the realities of living in a processed world, Bill found himself needing to kick a daily Diet Coke habit with a healthier sparkling alternative, and created Spindrift in 2010 as there was no other option in the marketplace with real ingredients he could understand and feel good about giving to his family.
Spindrift is committed to reintroducing people to the amazing taste of real ingredients. There are no secret recipes and no artificial ingredients you can't pronounce in our sparkling waters, just real squeezed fruit that is really delicious.
