Frequently Asked Questions


  • What is a traditional Indian beverage?

    Traditional Indian beverages are diverse, flavorful concoctions deeply rooted in the country's culinary heritage. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, plays a significant role in these beverages, as they are often crafted with ingredients, including herbs, spices, and fruits, known for their functional benefits. They aid digestion, promote hydration and cooling, and provide essential nutrients. From herbal infusions to digestive aids and refreshing tonics, these beverages combine flavor and Ayurvedic wisdom to enhance overall well-being.

  • Is Ark an Ayurvedic drink?

    All of the Ark drinks have their roots in Ayurveda. While certain ingredients can be good for your health and have a functional benefit, and while we have been mindful of the calories and sugar, we didn't create them specifically to be served as health drinks. They're meant for having a good time and enjoying yourself. Just a friendly reminder: don't go overboard with anything because too much of a good thing can be bad for you!

  • How do I drink Ark?

    Ark is best enjoyed chilled, straight from the ready-to-sip can. Our drinks are intense in flavor. To tone these down, you could pour Ark over ice in a glass - and don't forget to add the garnish!

  • Does Ark contain any alcohol?

    Ark drinks are nonalcoholic but, like many drinks crafted using natural botanical extracts, that have trace amounts of alcohol, less than 0.5% alcohol-by-volume, as permitted by the FDA. FWIW, a ripe banana has similar levels of alcohol.
