AUSTIN, Texas — LIVE Soda Kombucha, the pioneer of better tasting Kombucha, has been recognized for its packaging, which won the BevNET Best of 2013 award for “Best Product Revamp.” BevNET, the leading beverage-oriented media company in the U.S., held its 11th annual awards on December 9, where it honored LIVE Soda Kombucha alongside other beverage industry winners.

“We are honored and humbled to receive this award from BevNET,” said Trevor Ross, CEO and founder ofLIVE Soda Kombucha. “Our mission to create a better tasting Kombucha that expands the category while offering a soda alternative has really been brought to life with our brand optimization.” The rebranding was completed by PTARMAK, an Austin-based design firm that collaborates intensively with a handful of clients each year. “The optimized LIVE Soda Kombucha branding evokes the energy, importance and benefits of Kombucha. We designed these for the shelf out to the consumer. So much of your marketing is off the shelf, we needed our product to pop and speak to what makes us different,” said Alicia Ward, Director of Marketing for LIVE Soda Kombucha.

BevNET’s Best of 2013 award winners were selected from thousands of products. “I thought this year’s selection process was the most difficult selection process since I came to BevNET,” said Jeffrey Klineman, Editor in Chief of BevNET. The products included were trailblazing brands in the beverage industry, and those BevNET expects to remain at the forefront of new growth in an ever-evolving marketplace. “The products that are on the best of list this year are the best products we’ve seen in the beverage industry,” said Ray Latif Managing Editor of BevNET.

LIVE Soda Kombucha is an Austin based company that hit the functional beverage market late in 2012 with a new spin on the ever popular drink. Kombucha is a cultured beverage made from a living blend of bacteria and beneficial yeast.

There are four delicious flavors to try:

Pure Doctor- Sweet with a touch of spice. It has delicious notes of sweet cherry, spicy clove, smooth caramel and deep molasses for lip-smacking flavor.

Culture Cola- We take the classic flavor known the world over and bring it to you with authenticity that can’t be denied.

Revive Rootbeer- It’s creamy, bold and refreshingly smooth. The undertones of vanilla and bright sizzle of sassafras will take you back to a simpler time.

Living Limon- It’s bright and fruity for a perfectly balanced zest. Pleasantly sparkling, this citrusy beverage is perfect for any day.

Try them all, we are sure you will find one you love!
