Clad in vibrant full-body shrink-sleeve labels—each depicting a scene from nature—the polyethylene terephthalate bottles should have no trouble catching the consumer’s attention. Seal-It (Farmingdale NY) gravure prints the PVC label in 10 colors. Label application occurs at Lyons Magnus (Fresno CA) the contract packager responsible for filling.

According to Aqua Vie founder Tom Gillespie two unique ingredients set Hydrators apart from all other beverages: crystalline fructose an all-natural sugar that delivers more sweetness per calorie and “chill” an all-natural ingredient that creates a sensory perception of icy freshness to spring water beverages.

“The product needed an up-to-date appearance that would make it look less like a bottled water and more like the sophisticated beverage it is” says Gillespie. The flavored water product in seven flavors will sell in supermarkets for 89¢ to $1.29.
