Creelman started Spindrift in 2010 as a solution to kick his soda addiction, and to create something he felt comfortable giving to his young kids. The decision to use real fruit originated from growing up on a farm in Western Mass. where his food was sourced primarily from local farms. From the kitchen to the board room, Spindrift began in Creelman's house in Charlestown, Mass. and now has more than 30 employees. Spindrift is distributed in key retailers such as Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Target and Costco.
