The article, which touts drank(TM) as the category leader and face of the relaxation beverage category, goes on to peg the category as receiving, “increased media and blog coverage, alerts by trend spotters and thought leaders, and an-ever growing mass of companies making and marketing relaxation drinks.”

Pioneering the growth of the relaxation beverage is drank(TM), the world’s first extreme relaxation beverage(TM), a 16 ounce grape flavored drink comprised of melatonin, valerian root, and rose hips designed to naturally relax and calm the consumer. According to the article, drank(TM) is the perfect alternative for “beer and wine drinkers who haven’t been yet been turned on to the concept of a non-alcoholic” beverage that provides similar relaxing effects minus the inebriation.

“Beverage Spectrum is one of the must-reads if you going to have your finger on the pulse of the beverage industry,” said Bianchi. “I am honored and humbled by their decision to feature our company on the cover of the magazine, and look forward to increasing our role and visibility as the industry leader for relaxation beverages. It is sources like these and others that fuel my creativity and keep me passionate about the beverage industry. I start my day sipping coffee and reading up-to-the-minute industry news and info on BevNet.com. Their extensive knowledge of beverage categories and eye for hot trends further validates all of the efforts that my staff and I have put forward.”

Making the cover of Beverage Spectrum comes just days before Bianchi addresses soft drink industry leaders at the InnoBev 6th Global Soft Drink Congress, March 9 – 11, 2010 in Istanbul, Turkey. Bianchi, who has quickly become a sought-out industry guru and renowned innovator in the United States beverage industry, will host a session entitled “Health Through Science: Drank For Relaxation” on March 11, 2010. During his presentation, Bianchi will discuss innovation in the functional beverage category and the driving forces behind the relaxation beverage trend.

When the concept for drank(TM) extreme relaxation beverage took root in early 2008, an army of energy drinks were vying for prized market share in the hottest cold beverage trend in the United States. Rather than joining the masses, drank(TM) has changed the game. With a slogan of “slow your roll(TM),” drank(TM) is the antithesis in the herd of energy drinks crowding the functional beverage sector. Since launching in select markets in early 2008, drank(TM) has quickly become the go-to beverage for people looking to relax their mind and body with a calming blend of melatonin, rose hips and valerian root. Since, drank(TM) has been featured by scores of national magazines and newspapers as well as appearing on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, Good Morning America, The Today Show, and The View.
