Gusto have been producing unique craft botanical drinks since 1990 when they launched ‘Gusto Original’ the UK’s first organic certified energy drink. Gusto Original was created in the Portobello Road kitchen of legendary organic pioneer Craig Sams, who founded Green & Blacks chocolate and Whole Earth Food, as a party pick me up and daily dose of wellbeing. Sweetened with organic apple juice and blending 4 ginsengs, organic guarana, cola nut and Chinese herbs for focus and clarity, Gusto Original delivers sustained stimulation with a wonderful cola taste. Gusto Lemon Energy followed this innovative path and blends whole crushed organic Sicilian lemons with guarana, wonder herb Siberian ginseng and astragalus. Lemon Energy is taste, stimulation and wellbeing and the Gusto team believe, the world’s finest lemonade.
In 2016 Gusto launched Gusto Cola, the first natural low calorie Fairtrade cola and the first of a new range of natural low sugar soft drinks. Gusto Cola has less than half the calories of Coke, contains no artificial sweeteners, phosphoric acid or synthetic flavours and colours, Gusto Cola is a craft cola with African cola nut at its heart and organic essential oils and spices for an original cola taste. Blended with Alpine spring water and supporting Fairtrade projects in Paraguay and Madagascar, not only is it a world first, it’s quite delicious!
