On Shelves Now At BevMo! and 7-11 in Southern California, with Upcoming Expansion into California’s Favorite Gourmet Supermarket Bristol Farms for January 2022
Caliwater, the trailblazing creator of the cactus based functional organic beverage, accelerates its 2022 expansion into sixty-five BevMo! locations and sixteen 7-11 stores throughout California. The two popular Caliwater flavors Ginger & Lime and Wild Prickly Pear are now available in the refrigerated beverage section of these major nationwide retailers, a huge accomplishment for the young company that officially launched less than one year ago.
Caliwater will further continue to grow its retail visibility with distribution into all Bristol Farms locations in Los Angeles, scheduled to hit shelves late January 2022.
Having launched in Spring of 2021 to much anticipation and positive reception, Caliwater is defined by a drive to create innovative, fresh functional beverages that connect us to the Earth and to one another. Inspired by the lush and varied landscapes of California, Founders Oliver Trevena (Actor/Host/Entrepreneur) and native Californian Vanessa Hudgens (Actress/Music Artist/Influencer/Entrepreneur) looked to their own desert regions to locally source Prickly Pear cactus fruit, known for its rare and potent healthful properties. Their vision - to sip on Cali in a can. Their key ingredient Prickly Pear is brought to life in beverage form in their quickly growing canned cactus water product, which is not only delicious and organic, but super hydrating and refreshing, and of course filled with rare antioxidants and digestion benefits. www.drinkcaliwater.com

We are passionate to be able continue to expand this important functional beverage’s retail footprint as the wellness landscape continues to evolve in the beverage category." - Oliver Trevena and Vanessa Hudgens, Co-Founders, Caliwater
