VANCOUVER, BC – January 4, 2016 – 10+ years ago on June 6, 2005, DD Beverage Co. launched Beaver Buzz Energy into the hot new energy drink category. The scrappy Beaver Buzz was ready to take on all comers including Red Bull, as well as the energy drink brands distributed by Coke (now carrying Monster) and Pepsi (now carrying Rockstar).
“Celebrating 10 years as an independent in the ultra-competitive energy drink category is an amazing accomplishment,” said Andrew Drayson, Managing Director of DD Beverage Co., “we’ve seen 100s of brands come and go over the past 10 years… it takes a special brand to compete on an un-level playing field to stand the test of time.”
Beverage media watchdog, BevNet.com, gave all three flagship Beaver Buzz flavours (Citrus, Saskatoon Berry, and Green Tea) a rare 4.5 out of 5 star review based on flavour profiles, and the clever branding.
Run by Andrew, and James Drayson, these two brothers continue to innovate. In June 2015 the company launched a new flavour called Canadian Punch… it’s a zero-calorie, zero-sugar offering to address this growing market segment.
DD Beverage Co. is proud that Beaver Buzz has been a top performer for its retail partners, and is a popular brand with both American and Canadian consumers.
“When Beaver Buzz is given a fair shot versus our competition in an account with equal shelf space and equal promotions, our brand is a top performer. Beaver Buzz’s longevity speaks volumes on the consumer brand loyalty towards our independent brand” states Andrew Drayson.
Beaver Buzz is available in thousands of retailers across Canada and the US… for more information, visit the Beaver Buzz website at www.beaverbuzz.com
