As mentioned before, what sets us apart from other beverage companies is our dedication to fine, specifically sourced premium ingredients. Let’s take a closer look at some of our partnerships with Montana farms and the premium ingredients they provide.
The common ingredient in all our shrubs is raw honey which we source from Wustner Brothers of Missoula, MT. Their bees populate hives in the secluded Sapphire Mountains of western Montana. That means their hives are surrounded by national forest lands where they are free to feed on wildflowers, knapweed, and other wild plants. All Wustner Brothers Honey remains unprocessed, unheated, and unfiltered. Therefore, their raw honey provides a myriad of nutritional value to our shrub drinks that processed sugar or cheap honey would offer.
Our cherries are gathered from the Orchard and Flathead Lake. Flathead Lake is the largest natural body of water west of the Mississippi River. Its shoreline provides the perfect landscape for small family-owned cherry orchards. The Orchard At Flathead Lake is home to children living among the cherries. Its owners are unwavering in dedication to organic and risk-free harvesting. Their growing practices ensure not only amazing fruit but also sustainable agricultural traditions.
Ginger is not what most of us think of as a Montana crop. But Montana’s landscape is so diverse, there are even unique areas, like Camas Prairie, where water pours from the ground at 87 degrees. That how we are even able to source our ginger from local Montana farmers. Deluge Farm is located in Camas Prairie and is the only commercial grower of ginger in Montana. Our partnership supports our commitment to showcasing Montana’s rich and unique agricultural heritage.
As you can see, what makes Shivelight Premium Beverage Company so unique is our partnerships and cooperation with Montana farmers. We are confident you will also enjoy sharing the magic of Montana.
