DrinkGP, LLC, which created and produces Mother Night™ presents: Garden Party Botanical Hard Soda is proud to announce that it has been named a winner of a 2017 Centric Indiana Innovation Award. Garden Party becomes the first beverage brand in the state of Indiana to receive this prestigious honor.
An executive panel of judges sorted and analyzed 48 finalists from this year’s applicants to select just nine of Indiana’s best new innovations. Already a recipient of Beverage Industry magazine’s 2016 Innovation of the Year award, Garden Party Botanical Hard Soda is revolutionizing the Flavored Malt Beverage (FMB) category in the adult beverage industry. The company is achieving this by taking the same craft approach to FMBs that has already been applied to every other category in adult beverages. Garden Party’s 100% all-natural ingredients, culinary inspired flavor profiles, and generous 8% alcohol content, along with its unique packaging and branding design, sets it apart.
Now in its seventh year, the Indiana Innovation Awards recognize key individuals and organizations who are successfully leading the innovation charge in the state. Winning innovations were judged on how well they fulfilled an unmet need in the market, the uniqueness of the product, the new value created for the end user and the financial evidence or market acceptance information the innovation has to support it.
Winners represent a cross-sector of Indiana industries including education, manufacturing, technology and consumer products. Garden Party will receive the award at Centric’s Day of Innovation conference on October 12 at Butler University. To learn more about the Indiana Innovation Awards, visit centricindy.org/awards.
