Here’s the best part, they participate in the Non-GMO Project verification program!  Did we “spike” your interest yet? Let’s learn more about their story, and why they choose to verify!

The Story

In the early 2000’s, industry veteran, Stan Rottell, wanted to bring a more versatile ginger beer to the beverage market. He wanted something that would wow your taste buds. This new ginger beer would go beyond the iconic ‘Dark & Stormy’ cocktail and mix creatively with a wider range of spirits. In 2006, Stan’s vision became reality when he launched Regatta Bermuda Stone Ginger Beer. This new ginger beer became an instant favorite among bartenders and bar owners.  It was even instrumental in bringing back the iconic Moscow Mule.

 In 2016, Stan retired and sold Regatta Ginger Beer to the current owner, Affinity Beverages LLC. Affinity is aggressively investing capital and infusing new resources and energy into product development, sales expansion and marketing, which is allowing their team to be more agile and reactive to the evolving beverage marketplace.

With the recent explosion of premium craft spirits and cocktails, they knew the time was right to offer other high-quality mixers that pair with today’s preferred spirits. Earlier this year they launched several new flavors! Royal Oak Ginger Ale – excellent when paired with Bourbon, Dry Citrus Sparkling Tonic that elevates the gin cocktail experience, Light Ginger Beer – great combined with vodka for a tasty yet slim version of the popular mule cocktail and Pacific Sea Salt Club Soda– sharp, crisp and refreshing, creating just the right balance of flavor and carbonation.  Now those sound like delicious cocktails to us!

Verification

Regatta Craft Mixers are made with only the best natural ingredients curated from around the world and then crafted in small batches – just as their award-winning Bermuda Stone Ginger Beer has been made since 2006. They contain no artificial ingredients, no high fructose corn syrup, are non-GMO, BPA and gluten-free and are all made right here in the U.S.

Currently, Regatta participates in the Non-GMO Project verification program.  Regatta says the Non-GMO Project verification is very important to them because it gives consumers (and them!) the guarantee that their ingredients are all-natural and not genetically modified. These know that these qualifications are important to today’s consumers and also to their brand.

“Where Food Comes From, Inc. was instrumental in helping us obtain our Non-GMO Project verified status, which is now displayed on all of the slim can products.” says Regatta.

They have since launched their slim cans in grocery outlets across the country, many of which require this designation to be considered for distribution.  Regatta is currently exploring other verification programs for 2020.
