Ugly Drinks cans

Created with a powerful mission to challenge the big beverage status quo, Ugly Drinks contain no sugar, no sweetener, no calories and nothing artificial. Co-founded by friends Hugh Thomas and Joe Benn, Ugly Drinks features sparkling water and clean energy drinks — both with bold flavors. The company’s flavor-of-the-month initiative, which has included butterscotch and strawberries and cream, demonstrates its striking approach to replacing the ordinary tastes of many sparkling waters.

“At Ugly Drinks, we know our customers and develop the products they want. Unorthodox Ventures has the same approach, and with the company’s expertise in selling direct, which has driven our rapid growth, we knew it was a perfect match.”
-Hugh Thomas, Co-founder & CEO
