Gizmo Beverages to expand RTD tea beverage distribution in US

DBR Staff Writer Published 19 April 2013

Gizmo Beverages is set to expand the distribution of its ready-to-drink (RTD) tea beverage - Tea of a Kind – to new retail channels in Northern California, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico.

The company has secured a significant market share in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada, with Washington, Hawaii, Oregon, and Colorado rolling out in the next 60 days.

In collaboration with Southern Wines and Spirits, Tea of a Kind has secured new retail accounts, including BevMo with 130 accounts, Vons Pavilions, Bristol Farms and Albertsons in Southern California, Kroger including Ralph's, Fry's and Smith's stores, Bashas' and AJ's Fine Foods in Arizona, Walgreens in New Mexico and Andronico's in Nothern California.

The RTD tea beverage is available in Peach Ginger Black Tea, Citrus Mint Green Tea, and Pomegranate Acai White Tea flavors.

It uses the company's patented Gizmo cap technology, which holds functional ingredients in a nitrogen pressurized chamber until the point of consumption.

Tea of a Kind is 100% natural, contains only 20cal per 16oz bottle and is loaded with antioxidants.

Apart from grocery stores and high-end health food markets, Tea of a Kind is also available in on-premise locations, including restaurants and bars; hotels and resorts; golf courses and sports arenas.
