Rising Star


It’s been a year of continued momentum and growth for Spindrift, a winner of BevNET’s Best of 2016 Rising Star award. The soda and sparkling water company kicked off the year with the completion of a $7.2 million raise, funding that enabled the brand to expand Spindrift’s reach and distribution across the U.S. Additionally, this summer the brand deftly executed a label revamp, which came with a transition for its seltzer line, now described as a “sparkling water,” a change that will better position the beverages as part of the surging carbonated water category. Spindrift also scored a huge foodservice win this summer, landing national distribution for two of its sparkling water products at Panera Bread. Led by a solid one-two punch team of founder Bill Creelman and CMO Strick Walker, the brand is in great hands and we expect 2017 to be another stellar year for Spindrift.
