The soda boys recently won Best Drink in Garden & Gun’s 2015 Made in the South Awards, and I could not be more stoked to see their labels in the magazine. Not only were the labels produced in time, these guys cranked on building their bottling line and completely customized their warehouse to get these bottles shelf-stable.
“‘My partners and I all worked in restaurants, and we saw great wine, beer, cocktails, and food,’ [Mick Matricciano] says. ‘Soda used to be an interesting thing, but it has gone downhill.’ They set out to bring it back to its more wholesome Southern roots, working with area farms and developing a rainbow of fresh flavors such as honey basil, strawberry jalapeño, and raspberry mint. Growlers of the stuff quickly became favorites at local farmers’ markets, and after three years of trial and error, their creations are now available in shelf-stable bottled versions that taste like soda might have a century ago.” - Garden & Gun
Over the past few years, I've had the honor of working with some incredible clients through Fuzzco. Three of these clients have had their labels appear in the Made in the South Awards: Bittermilk (2013), Bulls Bay Saltworks (2014) and now Cannonborough Beverage Co (2015).
