The Navajo Fizz Craft Soda Company is a multifaceted business venture designed to produce delicious and unique beverages from ingredients sourced from the Navajo Nation and local surrounding communities. Our initial launch of flavored sodas consist of ingredients such as sumac berries for the strawberry soda sourced from Navajo Agricultural Products Industry. One of our most popular soda flavors is the Navajo Greenthread tea soda with a recipe based on the naturally growing Navajo Greenthread tea native to the Navajo Nation community. Navajo Fizz will launch its startup operations at the Navajo Blue Travel Center in Flagstaff, Arizona. Navajo Fizz is producing its craft soda with custom brewing and bottling equipment on a guest interactive platform with brewing and bottling systems visible to the travel center guests from behind the walk up glass panel walls. Navajo Fizz has a story unlike any other, a story rich in history, a company designed to strive to be self-sufficient, to be independent, a company at its core that preserves and utilizes the ingredients from where they originated from and how they were intended to be used.
Navajo Fizz was developed to pay tribute to the plentiful amount of natural ingredients grown and produced on the Navajo Nation, to be self-reliant, and to produce a delicious product highlighting the traditional way of making craft beverages. Navajo Fizz pays tribute to the story telling history of the Navajo people while producing a carbonated beverage with ingredients indigenous to the Navajo community. In the world of beverage development most beverage companies hire flavor houses to develop syrups that are most often chemically produced and lab created. This process yields a final concentrate with non-natural and artificial ingredients that contain very little amounts of actual fruit juice. Navajo Fizz takes the opposite approach to developing our sodas. We use a fruit forward cold press system with all natural extracts, local honey, pure vanilla, whole fruit, and ingredients native to the region. Navajo Fizz recipes will never require high fructose corn syrups or alternative sweeteners that have swept through the market place due to their inexpensive properties. The four images below showcase our initial four craft soda flavors and trademark registered custom labels.
