Behind the Scenes: How We Crafted Our Unique Flavors

Jun 20, 2024Hooch Booch

Our commitment to quality and innovation drives us to create beverages that not only taste amazing but also offer powerful benefits through botanicals, teas and functional minerals. Here’s a glimpse behind the scenes at how we craft our signature flavors, deeply inspired by the botanicals used in the original Corpse Reviver cocktail.

1. Sourcing High-Quality Ingredients

The journey to exceptional flavor begins with the selection of high-quality ingredients. We prioritize real, organic, and sustainably sourced ingredients to ensure the best taste and benefits. When searching for our botanicals, we took inspiration from the absinthe elements found in the original Corpse Reviver cocktail. From exotic fruits to aromatic herbs like wormwood, anise, and fennel, every component in our beverages is chosen to reflect the unique elements of this classic botanical drink. Let’s be real, we all need a little hair of the dog every once and while.

2. Experimentation & Flavors

We could come up with a super sexy story here, however, it’s actually pretty simple. Our team shared with our brewers the flavor profiles we were trying to hit along with the functional benefits. They worked up a few options for us while we tweaked some things, think “salt to taste”… we then landed on what we deem the perfect balance of taste, aroma, and mouthfeel. By infusing the essence of botanicals into our recipes, we craft beverages that are as intriguing as they are refreshing. We are looking to craft trends rather than chasing them.

4. Real Sugar!!!

We are committed to using only real ingredients all the way down to how we get any sort of “sweetness” in our product. We use exclusively pomegranate juice in all of our three flavors because we believe real ingredients offer the best quality sips.

6. Quality Control

Quality control is an integral part of our production process. Every batch of our beverages undergoes rigorous testing to ensure consistency, safety, and taste. Our commitment to high standards means that you can trust Corpse Reviver for a premium drinking experience every time.

7. Enhanced with Electrolytes

We worked with a nutritionist to develop an optimal electrolyte blend to offer your body the revival it needs. After all this is a true, Corpse Reviver, not just a funny marketing gimmick. This blend includes essential minerals like potassium, sodium, magnesium, L-theanine, and zinc. Drinking our beverages daily provides several benefits:

  • Potassium helps regulate fluid balance and muscle contractions.
  • Sodium maintains proper nerve function and hydration.
  • Magnesium supports muscle and nerve function and energy production.
  • L-theanine promotes relaxation without drowsiness, improving mental focus.
  • Zinc strengthens the immune system and aids in metabolic function.

8. Sustainability and Ethics

We are dedicated to sustainable and ethical practices in our production. This includes minimizing waste, using eco-friendly packaging, and supporting fair trade practices. Our goal is to create delicious beverages that are good for you and kind to the planet. We believe it not only reviving your corpse but also our planet wherever we can.

9. A Founder's Passion

Corpse Reviver was founded by Anna Zesbaugh, who brings her rich background in hospitality and a deep love for beverages to the table. Anna's journey in the food and beverage scene has been extensive, with years of experience working in various luxury hotels and restaurants. She possesses a WSET Level 2 certification in wine and spirits, a testament to her expertise and dedication. Anna's initial foray into the world of wine ignited her passion for beverages, leading her to explore the endless possibilities within the realm of better-for-you beverages.

Our vision for this beverage is that every sip becomes a statement. Our brand revolves around wellness, crafting trends rather than chasing them. We pride ourselves on innovation that withstands the test of time, seamlessly blending into any and every occasion. We’re proud to be a woman-owned business that values inclusion and uplifts others through the tradition of bringing people together with beverages.
