The Solution

Sed introduced a line of cactus water-based and zero-alcohol cocktails that pair beautifully with food, like a fine wine would.

The three main varieties each offer complex flavor profiles, and notes designed to blend well with different ingredients. SED also offers a special edition variety, packaged in an elegant gift box, designed to fulfil the brand promise of sharing with those around you. A tasting event was also created to educate consumers about the new product, and to show how the different varieties can be paired with gourmet food.

By opening the door for non-drinkers to pair special drinks with meals, ​SED offers the gift of being able to gather around the table with loved ones.
