Company Description

The original Gusto Kola was developed in 1990 as a healthy, 100% natural alternative to carbonated drinks containing artificial flavouring, caffeine and refined sugar. Now Gusto has added two newly formulated fruit packed flavours to the family.

Gusto is available from all good health shops, fine food outlets, Whole Foods Market stores throughout the UK, Planet Organic and Ocado.  Gusto is now available in the Republic of Ireland, Sweden, the Netherlands and the Middle East.

Each bottle contains a generous dose of their signature ingredient Guarana for sustained energy, carefully balanced with fruit extracts, essential oils and exotic herbs and spices for a refreshing, sophisticated flavour. Sweetened only with organic fair trade apple juice, these lightly sparkling functional drinks provide a gorgeous tasting guilt free boost whilst at work or play.

Guarana is a natural stimulant derived from a berry native to the Amazon rainforest where indigenous tribes have used it for millennia to stave off hunger and provide energy and stamina whilst hunting. Siberian and panax ginseng are revered in the Orient for their medicinal properties and can improve mental clarity and cognitive function.

“Herbs, spices and plant extracts have long been harnessed for their healing, stress busting and immune-boosting qualities,” explains Karim Sams, Director of Gusto.  “Our original Kola was devised to enhance mental and physical performance naturally – we continue with that ethos, using botanical energisers for a chemical free pick-me-up. Gusto stands out as its all about great taste, natural energy and wellbeing – qualities rarely associated with soft or energy drinks ”.

Each of the three recipes has unique properties: Original Kola for Energy and Focus blends African kola nut with 14 rare botanicals and matured, forest grown Panax Ginseng; Sicilian Lemonade for energy, stamina and stress reduction combines crushed Sicilian lemons with aromatic lemongrass oil, astragalus and Siberian ginseng; Sicilian Orangeade for energy and vitality contains 7 botanicals including echinacea, elderberry, astragalus, turmeric and chilli. Gusto's ingredients are all certified organic and all our apple juice is Fairtrade.

The Original ‘Gusto Sparkling Kola’ was devised in 1990 by Craig Sams, founder of Whole Earth Foods and Green & Blacks chocolate. Craig wanted to create a great tasting organic soft drink that harnessed the energy and gentle stimulation of guarana, and decided to match this with a blend of botanicals to aid concentration and mental clarity. For 20 years Gusto has remained the original organic soft drink packed with natural botanical energy. In January 2012 Craig’s son Karim developed two new flavours: Organic Sparkling Lemon and Organic Sparkling Orange. These new flavours have created a tasty family of drinks that refresh and stimulate with great flavour, integrity and provenance. Each drink is priced to reflect the premium paid for the botanical ingredients – Gusto constantly strive to create the highest quality drinks at the fairest price. There are significant quantities of active ingredients in each bottle to deliver the best flavour and botanical stimulation.
