SANTA MONICA, CALIF. – Sept. 17, 2012 – Flavor innovations in carbonated beverages have been few and far between. MINTA® a new “magically refreshing™” mint-flavored soda, will soon be available to consumers this fall. The 100 percent naturally sweetened and flavored beverage provides consumers with a crisp, bubbly taste that highlights its unique mint flavor. MINTA will be sold in convenience and grocery stores across the United States, beginning in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and Miami.

“It’s all in the name,” said MINTA Founder Jenia Kokotuha. “MINTA provides a refreshing quality and a taste that creates a new soda category in-and-of itself. We’re excited to share MINTA with consumers in the U.S.”

Based on the famous European drink of mixing sparkling water and mint syrup, MINTA will be available in Original, with all-natural sugar, and Diet, which is sugar free and only five calories. MINTA Diet sodas are made with Stevia, a natural sweetener made from the leaves of a South American plant. The natural sweetener provides the crisp taste of the mint soda.

MINTA Original and Diet will be sold in custom, recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) 12-ounce bottles, 12-ounce cans and 355ml glass bottles. MINTA is packaged, bottled and distributed by local beverage manufacturers. In addition, Minta Beverages, Inc. has hired Blue Pacific Flavors to assist in developing original flavors and monitoring production quality.

“We’ve created a magically refreshing soda that is meant to be enjoyed every day. It also provides a great way to enjoy an after-dinner mint or can be used as a mixer for various drinks,” Kokotuha said. “MINTA’s distinct green bottle represents the mint flavor that captivates all five senses.”


MINTA is a carbonated, mint-flavored soda that was founded in 2011. MINTA is available in Original (Natural Sugar) and Diet (Sugar-Free) in 12 ounce Cans, 12 ounce custom PET bottles and 355 ml custom glass bottles. For more information on MINTA, visit, like us at and like us at twitter account.
