“The response from the public has been overwhelmingly positive and because of that, we’ve landed some of the most premiere accounts in San Diego,” said Co-Founder of Melograno Cocktails, Shiva Mortazavi. “To be able to secure interest so quickly in our first market, and our home, confirms that we are truly a unique product. Customers see Melograno for exactly what we are – a high-end delicious craft cocktail that doubles as an artistic statement appropriate for any occasion.”
The creators approach
Founders– Reza and Shiva Mortazavi, a husband and wife team based in San Diego – were inspired and influenced by the current trending industry to create a product they have yet to see – so they took a creators approach – and one that aligned with their values and wellness philosophy vs a mass manufacturers approach chasing flavors and copy and paste design, and the result is one that is beautiful enough to carry around like a stylish accessory and cocktail recipes that are inspired from cultures around the world.
All four flavors (Pomegranate Cosmopolitan, Melon Margarita, Orange Blossom Martini, and Cucumber Lime Mojito) come in a variety of 12-pack, each with only 120 calories, 5 grams of organic cane sugar and 5% alcohol by volume in a 12 oz sleek can. The team plans to expand in Las Vegas and other markets in the coming months.
Among the best cocktails in the world
In addition to landing some prestigious accounts, Melograno Cocktails was awarded two bronze and two silver medals at the 2022 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition, a wine and spirit competition sponsored by the Tasting Alliance, validating that the new RTD product is among the best in their category.
