ETCH Sparkling is a family run, proudly 100% Australian owned business founded by husband and wife team, Jason and Andy Quin based on beautiful Bunurong Land - Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
After over 2 decades working in the wine industry across Australasia and Europe, ETCH Co-Founder Jason Quin made the decision to stop drinking due to his growing reliance on alcohol to get through the daily stresses of life.
Making the shift to an alcohol free life, Jason and Andy noticed the lack of options available were limited for those looking for a sophisticated alcohol-free beverage without tonnes of sugar or preservatives.
So armed with the knowledge and insights from their beverage industry background, Jason and Andy decided to “create something they wish existed” and put their skills together to bring ETCH Sparkling to life.
NATIVE AUSTRALIAN INGREDIENTS
At the same time, the pair discovered a new interest in native Australian edibles. Walking on Country with Aboriginal educator, Lionel Launch from Living Culture, the pair became aware of the myriad of native edibles they would usually pass by. Being passionate foodies, Jason and Andy began to educate themselves on the incredible nutritional qualities and delicious flavour profiles of Australian native ingredients, many which are just emerging in the broader Australian vocabulary but have been recognised and cared for by First Nations people for many thousands of years.
THE ETCH SPARKLING VISION
As well as being a range of delicious drinks, Andy & Jason like to think of ETCH as a powerful message for social change and inclusion wrapped up in a bottle (or can!). Jason and Andy acknowledge how important presence is to people and how many are making a change to their drinking behaviours for their own health, aware that what we consume doesn’t have to impact our environment, families or how we feel tomorrow.
ETCH celebrates sustainably farmed native Australian ingredients and spreads a message of good health and social inclusion for people who are looking for a delicious sparkling beverage with complexity and sophistication, (without artificial sugars, colours or preservatives).
THE ETCH SPARKLING DRINKS
ETCH does not replicate a traditional alcohol style, Andy & Jason want to challenge the idea that an adult drink has to taste and smell like alcohol to be enjoyable. Satisfying mouthfeel, flavour, and presence and utilising uniquely Australian plants, you can feel proud sharing and enjoying ETCH and being included, during all occasions.
The ETCH Sparkling range is sugar free, preservative free and all natural (no artificial sweeteners in sight!)
The flavours are complex and interesting and will take you on a journey to experience the stunning native ingredients featured in each drink.
ETCH is the true taste of Australia and a drink you can really feel good about.
