From answering the burning question, what is craft soda to showcasing our 4 flavours from ginger rebel to pink punk, we’re helping you get to know Gunna drinks.
We want you to get to know Gunna Drinks a little better. From our history to where we’re at now, our latest post is all about the journey of Gunna so far.
How Gunna started
We launched Gunna back in 2017 as an antidote to bland, sugar-packed ‘old school’ fizzy drinks. After years of graft, we’re proud to say we’re now the fastest-growing soft drink in the UK and we have no plans of slowing down.
Gunna was born as we were cutting down on alcohol and wanted to find some super-tasty alternatives to craft beer. As we sampled traditional soft drinks, we struggled to find something we really loved because the options on the market lacked personality and flavour. We also found it challenging to understand some of the ingredients in traditional soft drinks.
In response, we created Gunna to battle the bland and take on the soft drink giants. Our drinks are lovingly crafted from fruit juices, sparkling water and a little sugar. Add in a couple of extra ingredients, and that’s all you’ll find, no nasties, no unnecessary calories.
We’ve made it our mission to create vegan-friendly craft soft drinks that are full of multidimensional flavours. We achieve this by pairing fresh fruits and natural flavours such as ginger extract and bitter herbs to bring our consumers intriguing combinations of sweet, sour, spicy and bitter. If you haven’t already, you really need to try for yourself.
Today, you’ll find us in stores and restaurants all over the UK. You can find out where your closest stockist is here. Or order us online.
What is craft soda?
To us, craft soda is something that offers authentic flavours, quality ingredients and differentiated experience. We like to think of craft soda/craft soft drinks as a game-changer that is going to give ‘old school’ soft drinks a serious run for their money. In fact, Metro branded it a revolution back in 2016, and the market has only grown since then.
Let’s break it down. Soft drinks is an umbrella term for non-alcoholic drinks. Typically, consumers will refer to fizzy drinks as soft drinks. So, craft soft drink is a term that’s become an extension of that, only better.
Similarly to soft drinks, most craft soft drinks are a carbonated beverage. The difference? Craft soft drinks are manufactured in smaller batches with natural ingredients.
Why we think you’ll like Gunna
It’s our mission to battle the bland and bring customers healthier alternatives that are full of flavour. Our drinks contain less sugar (less than 5%), fewer calories and no artificial colours or preservatives.
All of our drinks are vegan-friendly and pack a punch thanks to fresh fruit, flavourful extracts and a hint of ginger. Currently, we stock four flavours: Raspberry Lemonade, Ginger Lemonade, Cola & Ginger and Mint & Lemonade.
Unlike many traditional soft drink brands, when you read our nutritional information, you’ll recognise every ingredient that goes into Gunna.
To put it simply, we make the soft drinks that we love. We’re big on flavour and true character. If you’re in search of an antidote to bland recipes, high sugar content and nasty ingredients, look no further. Join us on our mission, it’s going to be one hell of a ride!
