Cloudwater x Yas Bean - Cherry Popsicle Soda 🍒

Aug 07, 2023

We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with the wonderful folks at Yas Bean, an independent coffee shop in Macclesfield run by husband duo, Mike & Dan. We reckon this was a match made in beverage heaven, and the roots of this collaboration run deep thanks to the long-lasting friendship between them and Mel from our brew team. 

Inspired by Yas Beans’ grape soda and the fact that Mika doesn’t drink booze, we put our heads together to create something that stirs nostalgia and brings forth the unadulterated joy of carefree childhood summers. Picture the quintessential taste of a sun-soaked day—now contained within a can. While we can't serve up actual sunshine, we can certainly transport you back to those radiant moments.

 Cherry Popsicle Soda is the reimagination of time-honored childhood treats like cherry ice lollies and tangy chewy cherry candy.  We used whole ingredients and infused it with mouthwatering aromatics. The result is a symphony of flavors—black sweet cherry, notes of vanilla, and the distinctive essence of tonka—united in perfect equilibrium with a spirited tang.

You can find Cherry Popsicle Soda now in our online shop as well as at independent retailers across the country.
