Berczy's 2021 Highlights
2021, that’s a wrap: a year easily framed with the age-old cliche "full of ups and downs". It's been our first full year in business, and we've come a long way... From growing our sustainability credentials, introducing innovative packaging and becoming carbon neutral, through to winning amazing stockists, being at the UK's best festivals and winning multiple awards.
We wanted to say a HUGE thanks to every single person who’s been a part of our journey; our customers, team, suppliers and everyone in between – we’re lucky to have you. 2022 is going to be even bigger, so have a fantastic end to the year from all of us at Berczy.
First Limited Edition Flavour
Hard seltzer isn’t just a summer drink; so we introduced our Limited Edition Winter Cola. A flavour first, as we were the first to make a Cola drink alcoholic. But you won’t find any nasty sweeteners in this one! Made with Kola Nut and Lime, we created a version that is all natural, nut and caffeine free.
Planet Organic Launch
As a team, Planet Organic is a firm favourite, we’re chuffed to be joining them on their expansion across London. With 13 prime locations, they have the top food, drink and sustainable brands. If you’re in the neighbourhood, pop into the new stores in Hampstead, Bermondsey & Broadway Market.
Becoming Carbon Neutral
Very excitingly, all Berczy products are now completely carbon neutral! Sustainability is core to our brand, so we felt this was an essential step. Partnering with Climate Partner, we measured our total carbon footprint and fully offset 53,000kg of CO2 by supporting climate action projects locally and in Latin America.
A Great Taste Award
Out of hundreds of entrants, our Passionfruit & Turmeric came out top! A unique flavour, it’s the first time turmeric has been used in alcohol. Described as a “striking, fruity seltzer that’s delicately carbonated and smells of fresh passionfruit”.

Taste of London
Taste of London in June was our first big event, and my oh my was it fun! Two weeks of wall to wall sunshine, it was great to meet so many of you, tell you more about Berczy and hear live feedback on all our flavours.
We hope to see you again next year 🤩
Top Rated on Trustpilot
Thank you to every single one of you that has taken time to leave feedback. It really means the world to us to see how much you love Berczy.
Shoutout to Jamie, "Very quick delivery and the product is worth the money. Crisp, flavoursome and a lot less artifcial tasting than the hard sparkling waters found in most supermarkets."
Available on Gorillas
In September we sealed the deal with Gorillas, the UK’s most loved on demand grocer, making Berczy available to you in minutes! Now Londoners can get Berczy when they want it, where they want it – delivered straight to your doorstep.
This year we kicked off an exciting partnership with food rescue charity, UKHarvest: 1% of our sales are donated to UKHarvest.
The team travelled down to Chichester to get stuck into collecting surplus food and redistributing it to those in need and we can’t wait to do more visits in 2022. You can read about our UKHarvest visit here.
The Evening Standard's Green List
Featuring in the Evening Standard’s ‘7 things you can do to be more green’ article, was a proud moment for us. We’ve worked hard to become an eco-friendly company, from cutting out plastic in our supply chain to ensuring all our cans and boxes are recyclable. Find out more about our sustainability mission here.
We were so excited to launch in all CitizenM hotels in the UK at the beginning of December. CitizenM are a proud misfit among traditional hotels, and we like to think we’re the same when it comes to drinks! A match made in colourful heaven. Discover your nearest stockist here.
