    A lot of things are taken into consideration when starting your own drink line.
    Packaging, ingredients, size, graphics, etc. Also, How much will you be ordering for your first run? how will you get it to your warehouse? How far away are fom the contract manufacturer are you?
    You will need liability insurance for your drink. You will need a lawyer to set up a corporation, trademark rights, etc.How much cash will you need to have on hand so you can pay employees before the drink goes on sale? How big of a distribution network do you have? How many trucks will you need? How many employees?
    There are many more questions.
    I don't mean to burst your bubble but these are the things you will need to answer before you can gauge how much capitol you will need.

    I can't tell you how much it will cost. My company makes our own drinks in house.

    However, I would take the cost of the case and at least double it for a wholesale cost. Then you can discount it from there to higher volume buyers.
