READ WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

I cannot get enough of these! They are blended to perfection. What a brilliant idea! I wish you much success. You have a winner here!

I HATE flavored water with a passion…too sweet and tastes artificial…until I tried yours! So delicate, so delicious, so subtle, so PERFECT!

I just wanted to share my love of your Lemon Rose water. I’ve tried most of the flavors and, to be quite honest, find them all a needed breath of fresh air. This is great for me because I’m trying to drink more water, and the taste allows me to consume without sacrificing flavor.

Pomegranate Geranium is delicious! I am always looking for something that does not have a lot of sugar in it. I get sick of drinking plain water.

My daughter thinks the Lemon Rose is “happiness in a bottle!” After she drinks it, she says it makes her feel really happy.

All of your drinks are . . . delicious [but] I am completely obsessed with Pomegranate Geranium. I love any foods which are fragrant . . . and your drinks fit into that rare niche of being aromatic. The smell and taste of these beverages is very healing.

I bought a Plum Jasmine and the flavor is so wow I had to get more ’cause you have a drink that flows with poetry and music. Gonna try the others.

I just discovered Blossom Water, and it is the most amazingly delicious drink I’ve ever had. Normally, I admit, I’m not a water drinker. But I’ve just discovered your Grapefruit Lilac, and it’s the tastiest thing…I want to drink it day and night, bathe in it…live in it. It’s that beautiful!

Very sophisticated beverage, can be served at any affair.

My favorite is the Lemon Rose, although I’m currently sipping on the Pomegranate Geranium and it’s trying to sway me. You’ve earned a very passionate customer!

I have only tasted the Plum Jasmine one, but I love the taste. It tastes so clean and refreshing, especially when you need a drop of heaven in your life.

I’m a tough critic but I have to say your water is far better than most I’ve tried, especially because it doesn’t leave any aftertaste like others. Also very smooth and tasty.

OMG. The water of the Gods! I bought every bottle T.J. Maxx in Pensacola had based on the ingredients, packaging and color. I go back every week hoping more will show up :). Although I am ordering online, I am driving to Mississippi soon to stock up.

I love the bottles! Very pretty! I usually drink plain water but I have been looking for a healthy alternative and this is perfect!

I can’t believe how fresh and clean your products taste. With only a few grams of natural sweetness that EVERYONE can enjoy.

I am having a gathering tomorrow and this water will be perfect!

Flavorful but not overpowering.

I cook with edible flowers and I love these waters – great concept!

The Lemon Rose goes down easy – I could drink 10 of these a day!

This water is a good alternative to the other flavored waters on the market – healthier and unique.

I like the Lemon Rose – it has a calming effect on me.

This water is so good that I am speechless!

Just found your product. Cracked open a Plum Jasmine. Love it. What a treat!

I usually drink just plain water but this is light and refreshing with just enough flavor.

I make my own fruit infused water but this is truly wonderful!

These waters are good. They don’t taste like anything else on the market.

The Lemon Rose is probably my favorite, although I find myself just sitting and smelling the Grapefruit Lilac like a loon, LOL.

This water is great! I’m going to add some to my sorbet!

I have lost a lost of weight and have been getting healthy so I drink nothing but water now and this a great alternative to plain water.

I am familiar with fruit and flower infusions and this is a great product. I am impressed!

I like this flavored water because it is not too sweet, whereas many of the other flavored waters are.

Very different and refreshing!

I have cut down on my sugar intake. I used to drink Coke all the time. This water is a nice alternative because it’s not too sweet. I think it’s great!

I fell in love with the Lemon Rose the first time I had it. Outstanding!

I drink a lot of water but sometimes I want some light flavor in it. This water is perfect for me!

I love them all – I can see myself fighting with my kids over them when I bring them home!

This is amazing! I love the Lemon Rose – I’m going to drink it out of a wine glass!

I like the combination of fruit and flowers – it’s delicious!

I normally don’t like flavored waters but this water is incredible!

I think this water is really great. I am a gardener and I think this is a good product.

What a brilliant product!

You expect it to have a really strong flavor and be really sweet, but it is not – love it!

Pomegranate Geranium is delicious, what an incredible burst of flavor.

Interesting and very different – this water will go far!

I am looking to get away from drinking soda and drinking more water – Blossom Water is perfect for me!

I am looking for something different for flavored water. Thanks! I love this water!

This is perfect for when I have some girlfriends over the house.

I gave up wine and am looking for healthy alternatives – this water will be one of them!

It is almost as good as wine!

It’s so nice to drink a water that does not have artificial junk in it and tastes great!

I need to hydrate more; this is a wonderful beverage to use!

Amazing! I am not a fan of flavored waters but this one I like!

Sweetened perfectly!

The bottles are so beautiful I want to put one in every window with a single flower in each.

I play tennis, so this is a great drink before and after I play!

Really refreshing! I can really taste the essences in the Lemon Rose and Grapefruit Lilac. They have a “zip” to them.

Blossom Water Expects To Be in Full Bloom in 2017

January 11, 2017 ‒ “Within six years, the founders of Blossom Water, Trish and Steve Fortuna, have been able to take the floral essence beverage from their backyard garden to thousands of retail stores across the U.S. . . . Blossom Water takes floral essence flavors like rose, jasmine, lilac and geranium and combines them with a base fruit flavor with a touch of sweetness from organic agave nectar and non-GMO erythritol. . . . The Fortunas realized they could appeal beyond the niche foodie crowd: to a broader consumer audience who is not necessarily interested in the innovative aspect of floral essence water, but are nevertheless searching for an alternative to water. . . . ‘We have not lost our foodie appeal because . . . foodies love the concept, they love the innovation, and they love the cutting edge aspect,’ [Steve Fortuna] added. ‘[But] The beauty about this is being able to appeal to people who say, “This is just damn good.”’ . . . Since going to market in 2013, Blossom Water has doubled in sales every year, and is setting the bar even higher in 2017. ‘We expect a triple in sales in 2017,’ Fortuna said. ‘We think sales growth is going to accelerate starting this year because we are reaching a critical mass distribution.’” Read more

Strategic Plan for a Blossoming Brand

December 16, 2016 ‒ “Innovative beverage ideas can come from many places. For Steve Fortuna, the idea for a beverage brand might have been whimsical, but his approach to bringing the idea to fruition certainly was not. Instead, the computer engineer and Wall Street financier has taken a carefully considered, highly strategic approach to every aspect of the process, from product development to market expansion, when founding Blossom Water LLC, Westwood, Mass…It wasn’t until the middle of 2013, after about 15 months of development work, that the company launched its initial line of four flavors: Lemon Rose, Plum Jasmine, Grapefruit Lilac and Pomegranate Geranium…He explains that there were two criteria he used to develop Blossom Water’s four resulting flavors. ‘It was what I like as a foodie [and] what appeals to me in terms of fragrance, what flowers ‘speak’ to me,’ Fortuna says…All of the strategies have paid off. All four flavors of Blossom Water perform with nearly equal sales, and the company has not changed the formulations in the slightest, he adds. Since its launch, the brand has achieved distribution through more than 24 warehouses throughout the United States, including several UNFI, KeHE and DPI warehouses. More are expected in the near future, Fortuna says. As distribution grows, the brand continues to build a following among more and more consumers. ‘The product resonated from the beginning, and that popularity is only building in concert with the broadening distribution and retail footprint,’ he says.” Read more

Bottled Water Is Poised To Overtake Soft Drinks, Says Blossom Water

December 7, 2016 ‒ “Blossom water is a brand that created a flower-infused, flavoured water line, and today we have an opportunity to talk to Steven Fortuna, the founder and CEO of Blossom Water…” Following are a few Fortuna quotations excerpted from this comprehensive interview: “A mock orange shrub, with its captivating citrusy fragrance, was my humble muse. About five years ago, while planting in my Berkshire Hills cottage garden, head amid the blossomed branches, I suddenly thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could develop a water that was infused with the essence of blossoms such as these?’…We gradually began looking into it, and our research uncovered centuries-long use of floral botanicals in beverages across the globe…So, paradoxically, the concept is both novel and traditional. But as far as the U.S. market goes, its potential has been virtually untapped. I think you can make a fair analogy to coconut water…a successful model of bringing something with proven multi-cultural consumer appeal to the American palate…My first significant decision was to add the fruit essence, as a counterbalance to my inspiration for the floral one. I knew this would not only add an element of familiar appeal for U.S. consumers, but that marrying both fruit and flower would bring critical depth and nuance to the resultant flavour. That kind of dimension, a subtle layering of taste and aroma from start to finish with each sip, is not something typically associated with flavoured water…Bottled water is now poised to overtake soft drinks as the largest nonalcoholic beverage category in terms of per capita consumption. Obviously, Blossom Water stands to benefit from this market disruption, which creates two tailwinds for us. One is the fast rising demand for bottled water as consumers gravitate away from soda to healthy alternatives. The other is the opportunity for share gain in “value-added” water (flavoured or otherwise enhanced) that is coming from plain bottled water…It was quite challenging to achieve this extensive yet selective footprint in the mere three years of our existence, and speaks to the way our product and brand are resonating with consumers. But to use a baseball metaphor, we’re now at bat with bases loaded, and capable of hitting a grand slam in terms of major new grocery chain authorizations. The recent Kroger endorsement, which added over 1,000 stores across the U.S. to our retail base, was our first home run…We believe we are on the road to becoming a large national brand specializing in floral-infused water and addressing the entire U.S. bottled water drinking market.” Read more

Blossom Water

October 30, 2016 ‒ “I had absolute pleasure in trying all of their exotic flavors…[and] love every one. I liked the Grapefruit Lilac the best, I THOUGHT, but every time I tried the next flavor, it tried to sway me over, LOL…The flavors blended together are so tasteful and light. They are not over sweetened in any way like other flavored waters can be. A great idea would be to grab a bunch of one particular flavor, add into a beautiful punch bowl with some edible flowers floating, for a wonderful and delicious conversation piece. These will be your new water go to’s and you will never turn back.” Read more

Blossom Water

October 15, 2016 ‒ “New and exciting products are formed and created with aspirations of becoming that ‘one of a kind’ concept. That is exactly what President and Co-Founder Steve Fortuna had in mind when he created Blossom Water, a floral enhanced water that is sweeping across the country.” Read more

When Hydration Isn’t Enough: The Rise of Functional and Enhanced Waters

October 13, 2016 ‒ “U.S. sales of bottled water will surpass those of carbonated soft drinks for the first time this year, with much of the former category’s booming business coming at the expense of the latter’s…Here’s a look at [three] subcategories gaining traction in the functional and enhanced waters segment…FLORAL INFUSED…For Blossom Water, the brand’s recent authorization at more than 1,000 Kroger-owned stores – twice its existing distribution footprint – serves as further validation for the floral-infused essence water space. ‘The category has proved itself,’ says [President and Co-founder] Fortuna. ‘We’re beyond the question of whether floral essence waters appeal to the consumer. The answer is they do, so now it’s time to knock down more distribution points.’” Read more

A Range Of Natural Essence Waters Inspired By Nature

October 6, 2016 ‒ “This beautiful product line begins with an amazing and unique hand-painted fruit and flower design on every attractive glass bottle and ends with a delightful tasting, healthy floral drink. Pomegranate Geranium…The taste is very refreshing, as this drink is not overly sweet…After just one sip, one can definitely taste the flavourful floral note that subtly complements the pomegranate…Plum Jasmine…The aroma of this flavour is very well blended, with the jasmine slightly overtaking the plum fragrance…Sweetness and sourness are well blended with a perfect ratio…Grapefruit Lilac…A strong but well-combined flavour…After a sip, the lilac overtakes the grapefruit flavour notes. The natural essence of this flower gives not only a unique but refreshing feeling in the mouth…Lemon Rose…The sharp and clear citrus flavour is well matched with a slight note of roses. After the first sip, the rose overtakes the lemon flavour, and one can taste the clear and fresh floral notes…Such an interesting beverage category can become a great competitor not only to refreshment drinks, such as vitamin water or iced tea, but also a great example of a drink for adults. It can be enjoyed alone or used as a unique mixer for alcoholic cocktails.” Read more

Blossom Water: A Little Taste of Summer in a Bottle

September 30, 2016 ‒ “The weather is pretty dreary here in New Jersey today, and I’m missing those long, sweet days of summer. So I thought I’d share a little sunshine with you, in the form of an awesome new drink that I first heard of at The Fancy Food Show in New York. It’s called Blossom Water, and it’s actually pure water infused with natural fruit and flower essences. Yes, flowers!!…I have to admit, I was a little nervous to try them. I just had a fear that the flavors were going to be overly flowery or something, or that I would get some kind of weird allergy from them, since I have an allergy to certain pollens. Nothing could have been further from the truth!…They are low in calories and contain natural ingredients that you can totally understand when you read the label…The story of how the drink came to be is really interesting. I love the natural concept, and the innovative aspect of it. My favorite was the plum jasmine, which had such a nice, light fruity flavor with just a tiny touch of jasmine essence behind it. I can’t even explain what it really tastes like, but ‘fresh’ is the best word that comes to mind. You might have seen me post some pictures on Instagram of the lemon rose flavor, too, which again has such a nice, refreshing flavor. I almost feel like you could serve them at a tea party, instead of tea! Read more

Early Autumn Beverage Finds: Blossom Water

September 27, 2016 ‒ “Blossom Water is one of my most favorite beverages that I learned of this September, I only wish I learned about this premium line of floral-enhanced natural essence waters sooner. I was glad to see it sold at a Health Food store on 2nd avenue while I was in Manhattan over the weekend. The waters are available in four flavors: lemon rose, plum jasmine, grapefruit lilac and pomegranate geranium. Soft, essence of a wild lush garden, it is a sip of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean regions, where rose water is commonly mixed into lemonade to balance the refreshing tartness with nuanced taste and aroma. Rose is even thought to bring healing properties, both physical and psychological.” Read more

My Favorite New Fruity Drink Has Hints of Flowers: Why I Love Blossom Water!

September 2016 ‒ “I’m always on the lookout for soda alternatives ‒ and we all know that those fake fruit flavored carbonated waters with 0 calories are just blah and leave an aftertaste. So I am so happy to discover Blossom Water, which combines natural flavors of fruit and flower essences. A full 16-ounce bottle is 45 calories or less and there are absolutely no artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives. They’re truly 100 percent natural and non-GMO.

This report explores the growing interests in bottled water brands and water bars…MORE THAN WATER: Hydration is important but brands are looking at the power of plants and flowers for that extra boost…BLOSSOM WATER takes pure water and infuses it with natural fruit and flower essences. Essences are derived from the named fruit or flower, using a steam distillation process and tend to linger longer on the palette, providing for a uniquely enjoyable drinking experience.” Read more

Blossom Water in Full Bloom on US Beverage Scene

September 7, 2016 ‒ “For Steve Fortuna, staying sane while navigating bear and bull markets in the world of high finance was all thanks to his passion for gardening. A few years ago while tending to his garden in the Berkshires, Steve had a refreshing epiphany. ‘The inspiration was simple,’ Steve said. ‘Imagine if one could infuse water with the beautiful aroma and flavor of flowers.’ About fifteen months later, Steve and his wife Trish launched the original Blossom Water line in 2013 featuring Lemon Rose, Plum Jasmine, Grapefruit Lilac and Pomegranate Geranium flavored waters…Capturing the delicate alchemy of flowers in a refreshing beverage was challenging to say the least…’What’s complicated is the formulation. It’s complicated because you have to get the right balance of fruit and flower,’ [said Steve.] Once the Blossom Water team cracked it, they were left with a perfectly actualized drink, in four flavors no less. Steve believes that even though Blossom Water is a premium beverage, it has the power to become a massive national brand. ‘It is premium, but we believe that the product is mainstream,’ Steve said. ‘We’re very excited about the future.’” Read more

Nationwide Deal with Kroger for Blossom Water Reflects Growing Interest in Floral Beverages

September 1, 2016 ‒ “Can water with floral essences become the next coconut water? Blossom Water founder Steve Fortuna thinks so…The beverages’ flavor and aroma come mostly from essences ‒ which are derived from the named plant…’The challenge was in the formulation,’ [Fortuna] said. The company spent 12 to 15 months coming up with the right amount of ingredients before it launched in the autumn of 2013…Floral waters are novel, but not that novel…Because floral water has been consumed for centuries by other cultures, [Fortuna] thinks the flower water category’s growth trajectory here in the US can be similar to what happened with coconut water. ‘Coconut water has been used for centuries in South America. And a couple of smart guys decided to bring it to the US, and now coconut water is its own category, it’s not going to go away!’” Read more
