Do your drinks contain sugar?
Our PLM and ZST flavours have zero sugar. The HNY is made with 100% cold pressed raw Mornington Peninsula Honey so has natural sugars from honey. In comparison to many other soft drinks, HNY is relatively low in sugar with only 2.7g per 100ml.
Do you use Stevia or other sweeteners?
We do not use stevia in our drinks. The sweetener we use in the PLM and ZST beverages is Monk fruit, 0.0033% w/w. Monk fruits extract is derived from dried Monk fruit. The extract is 150-250 times sweeter than table sugar, has zero calories and carbs, and does not raise blood glucose levels.
Are ETCH Sparkling drinks Organic?
We do not have the ACO certification , however as the plants we use in our drinks are native to Australia they are known to thrive naturally in our climate and with minimal intervention, meaning no pesticides.
Are your drinks Vegan friendly?
Our PLM and ZST are plant based and 100% suitable for vegans. As our HNY is made with honey, this flavour is not suitable for vegans.
How much is shipping?
We charge $10 flat rate shipping across Australia….that means you can buy one case or 3 (or more) and you will only be charged $10 shipping.
If you are lucky enough to live on the Mornington Peninsula (where we happily reside) then shipping is completely FREE and if you are lucky you will get a special visit from Jason in the ‘bug van’!

Please note that during the current situation with COVID-19 there have been some instances where there are delays. Sincere apologies if your delivery is affected.
Can I track my order?
