and slightly pulpy.
Spindrift is America's first sparkling water made with just real squeezed fruit. Yup, that's it.
It all started in Boston.
It all started in 2010, in our founder Bill’s kitchen. Bill wanted to create a beverage he could feel good about serving to his whole family. First, he made real fruit sodas and then, after lots of trial and error, the very first sparkling water in America made with real squeezed fruit.
Spindrift debuted in artisan Boston-area shops and eateries where it caught the eye of local foodies and craft beverage fans. Then, it grew from a cult-like following to a wide, diverse fan base. Today it’s available throughout the US in national retailers, grocery stores, and restaurants alike. The recipe, however, has remained the same: sparkling water + real squeezed fruit.
Headquartered just outside of Boston, the Spindrift team is obsessively involved with the entire process in the creation of our sparkling waters. From visiting the family farms where we source the best-tasting fruit, to being on-site for every single production run, to tasting each and every batch. We love the challenge that comes from working with real ingredients and making a product that stands out in a crowd.

At Spindrift, our favorite thing - besides real fruit - is engaging with those who drink Spindrift: our community of Drifters. They’re real, authentic, and 100% unabashedly themselves. They celebrate quality and craft. Like us, they always aspire to be just *a little* better. They try to make life better and more fun for others. They savor the good things in life.
They have the same qualities we seek out in teammates and friends. (In fact, we call our community “Drifters” because that’s the name we’ve long called our colleagues at Spindrift. It just felt right to extend the term of endearment to others who shared the same vibe.)
Since the beginning, they have supported us by buying our product, asking stores to carry us, telling their friends about Spindrift, and so much more. We wouldn’t be where we are today without them so, in turn, we’ve made the community our northstar. Our Drifters guide what we do at Spindrift and how we participate in the world around us.

Real ingredients are second nature.
Bill Creelman grew up immersed in a world of fresh, real ingredients. On a farm in Western Massachusetts, everything was unprocessed, seasonal, and fresh. In the summer, his family would head to Nantucket Island, where they’d forage for beach plums and catch the fish they’d eat for dinner. To Bill, real, whole ingredients were just second nature.
Fast-forward to 2010, when farm-to-table started trending and ingredient-conscious eating turned mainstream, Bill was introducing his own family to real, whole foods. But, like most people, he found himself reaching for diet sodas in an attempt to “be healthier”. The irony of pairing an artificially sweetened soda with carefully crafted, real farm-to-table meals was not lost on him.
But as he taught his young children the value of real homegrown ingredients, he couldn’t find a drink that fit. So Bill decided to make his own. Cue lots of experimentation, trial-and-error, and a whole lot of juicing in Bill’s kitchen; Spindrift Beverage Co. was born. The first sparkling water made with traceable ingredients and real fruit from real farms.
Today, Bill isn’t doing quite as much juicing – but he still works on the creation of every Spindrift flavor, tasting each fruit concoction our Innovation Team mixes up.
What's in a name?
Inspired by his formative years on the ocean off the shores of Nantucket Island, Bill named his drinks “Spindrift,” the refreshing spray that blows off of a breaking wave. For him, the ocean is the perfect symbol of real refreshment.
