Vista Drinks, a new local beverage startup, has launched an innovative sparkling water that’s set to make waves in the New Zealand drinks market. The brainchild of three Auckland schoolmates, turned business partners Vista, was developed after the co-founders saw a gap in the market for a healthy, zero sugar beverage.

The sparkling water is available in three flavours – feijoa, berry and lemon – each produced with just carbonated water and natural flavour derived from fruit, which means it has no sugar and less than one calorie per can. Two years ago, the three friends realised there were no beverages available that appealed to them when they felt like drinking something other than plain water. so they set to work developing an alternative to sugary beverageS. Following the soft launch in August, Vista has been stocked at a selection of cafes in Auckland and is now available for purchase at a limited number of Countdown stores throughout New Zealand.
