Veri Soda is the first certified organic, low-calorie soda in the U.S. While there are other organic sodas, and some no-calorie alternatives, the differences between Veri and its competitors in the industry are numerous, but most important is taste. Veri Sodas are made with the best quality certified organic, non-GMO ingredients including a proprietary blend of flavors plus organic cane sugar and organic stevia, to deliver a low calorie soft drink with only 60 calories per can. Consumers give the four flavors – Veri Cola, Veri Orange, Veri Lemon Lime and Veri Ginger Ale – a “thumbs up” for its clean, effervescent flavor without the “after-taste” often associated with stevia-sweetened beverages. As a further boost to its benefits, Veri Soda is “low glycemic load” which is tremendous for people with blood sugar management issues.

Solbeso_Tall_Straight_AN

Solbeso is the first premium, distilled spirit made from a curated, hand-selected blend of the world’s finest cacao fruit. At 80 proof, the category-defining spirit delivers a floral aroma and light taste derived from the creamy, sorbet flavor of cacao fruit – a delicate, citrusy sweet pulp that bears no resemblance to the cacao bean, used to produce chocolate.

A by-product of cocoa bean production, the aromatic cacao fruit used to distill Solbeso is sustainably sourced from family farms and co-operatives throughout Latin America, where cacao production has been a way of life for thousands of years. By pioneering every step of the production process – from cacao collection, to fermentation, to distillation – Solbeso has created the world’s first cacao fruit supply chain, benefitting local communities in remote regions of Latin America along the way.

The cacao used to make Solbeso is naturally organic, 100% pure, and rich in natural stimulants.

The taste of Solbeso is unprecedented, as it is a robust spirit that captures the character of the finest cacao fruit of Latin America. With hints of warm honeysuckle and dry citrus, the flavor profile is both zesty and full-bodied with a complex and unusually soft finish.

Solbeso adds a new verve to cocktails, infusing them with the benefits, taste and aromatics of cacao fruit. With a complex taste that both complements and enhances a wide range of flavors, the 80 proof base spirit comes alive in cocktails unlike few white spirits. To experience the nuances of Solbeso, try the spirit over ice or with a lemon twist.

Similarly to grapes, cacao fruit is influenced by terroir, a term that refers to the effect of local environment on quality, flavor and aroma, inclusive of factors like geography and climate. Just as the highest quality cacao beans create the best chocolate, the varietal of cacao also affects the final taste of Solbeso. Thus, Solbeso is made from a distinctive blend of aromatic cacao fruit that has been hand selected for intensity and character from a variety of regions across South America.

Because the cacao fruit originates in different regions, the collection, fermentation and distillation practices used in the production of Solbeso are tailored to local conditions.

The world’s first cacao fruit supply chain was built with the support and expertise of world-renowned experts. Those responsible for the development, introduction, and growth of Solbeso include:

Thomas Higbee, Original Distiller & Founder

Thomas Aabo, President & Co-Founder

Rafo Urbina, Master Distiller

Fernando Crespo, Horticulture & Cacao Expert

Clay Gordon, Cacao Expert

Dave Pickerell, Distillation Expert

Suggested Retail Price: $39.99 for a 750ml bottle

Availability: 

Solbeso is available at select retailers, restaurants and bars throughout New York City and Miami.

Rigoni_Nocciolata

 

Is the U.S. going “nuts” for Nocciolata? Apparently they are. “Nocciolata is much better than other hazelnut spreads and it’s organic” is the typical response from consumers trying Nocciolata for the first time.

TIME© Magazine recently defined Nocciolata as the #1 Organic chocolate hazelnut spread for taste and nutritional value.

Rigoni di Asiago believes the key to this delicious artisanal product starts with quality. In fact Nocciolata is made only with the highest quality ORGANIC and Non-GMO ingredients (sugar, hazelnut paste, sunflower oil, skim milk powder, cocoa powder, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, natural vanilla flavoring) farmed without polluting the environment and with minimal Co2 emissions. It is produced by working all ingredients slowly and carefully.

In particular Cocoa from the West Indies, Italian Hazelnuts (low-fat) from Lazio region and Vanilla Madagascar are the three main ingredients and with the addition of cocoa butter it becomes even creamier. Nocciolata contains only natural fats, with No Palm oils, No Hydrogenated fats or artificial flavors. It is GLUTEN FREE.

Founded in 1923, Rigoni di Asiago is located on the Asiago plateau, Veneto region (approx. 90 miles north of Venice) and is the leader in the organic honey and organic fruit-spread market in Italy (Mielbio Organic Honey and Fiordifrutta Organic Fruit spreads). The plateau is an area surrounded by nature where the Rigoni’s Family has always lived and worked.

“Our company, says Andrea Rigoni, current CEO and general manager, is still where it was founded on the Asiago Plateau and for us it is an ethical choice to stay where we were born and raised and where our grandmother Elisa began the beekeeping operations before the First World War.” Since then, Rigoni di Asiago has become successfully known everywhere in Italy and now in Europe. New facilities, farms, research & development and expertise are the only recipe for their success that provides great quality, organic products and it is driven by a great love for nature. “Organic products, says Andrea Rigoni, are not only healthier but also tastier. Choosing organic products means to preserve natural resources over the time for ourselves and for future generations.”

And through the guide of Miami, FL.-based Rigoni di Asiago USA, American subsidiary of Rigoni di Asiago, Nocciolata is becoming a nationally known brand. “There still a lot to do but we are going in the right direction” said Alberto Carli, President of the U.S. Company.

In fact Nocciolata is gaining fast placements throughout the U.S.A. Nocciolata also won the silver statuette at the 2010 Sofi Award Competition, resulting in “best of the best” in its category and since then it is more and more appreciated and recognized by the American consumers.

Nocciolata is available in the classic 9.52oz jars, in the new food service size 11LB pail and “grab & go” pouches.
