About Victoria's Kitchen
Victoria's Kitchen is a specialty beverage company that makes exceptional European-inspired drinks. Our beverages are delicious, refreshing and come with clean and easy to read ingredients.
If you walk into a grocery store these days, you'll see plenty of new beverages with electrolytes, probiotics or caffeine. We think that's great but we are different in the way that we make traditional everyday beverages but better. All our beverages are naturally sweetened, delicious and not packed with calories.
We don't do ultra high calorie drinks but we don't do diet either. We focus on taste and refreshment but with natural ingredients and reduced calories.
About Almond Water
Inspired by a traditional and artisanal recipe from my grandmother’s kitchen in the South of France, our Almond Water is the perfect combination of delicate yet tasty flavors that awaken your taste buds.
Everything that came out of my grandmother’s kitchen was always full of love, and Almond Water was no exception. Infused with natural flavors, extracts, and a hint of sweetness, it is a refreshing alternative to lemonade or iced tea.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as our family does.
David, Founder & Grandson
Although the original purpose of Almond Water was simply to be a delicious refreshment drink and an amazing treat made by a grandmother for her children and grandchildren, when David grew older, he realized it also made for an amazing cocktail mixer! Check out a couple of fun cocktail recipes here.
How It All Started
My grandmother had this amazing recipe for what she called Almond Water. She was always making it for us (the grandkids) when we would come over. I remembered it was so refreshing and sweet; an amazing afternoon treat. When my wife and I came to the US (from France), we kept on making Almond Water when we were entertaining. People were always asking for more to take home, this is where the idea of putting it in a bottle, ready-to-drink and shelf stable came from.
We presented it to a few local Los Angeles retailers and it was a huge success. We then decided to exhibit at The Winter Fancy Food Show in January 2012, followed by Expo West in March and the brand really took off.
We are now sold at over 800 locations nationwide with a big focus on the West Coast.
Our company's secret is the love and respect of family traditions and recipes. And like any grandmother, Victoria's Kitchen uses only the best ingredients for you.

What Does Almond Water Do For You?
Pretty much nothing :-) Almond Water isn't a functional drink.
If you are looking for electrolytes, you came to the wrong place :-) Almond Water is a family drink and just like a lemonade or a sweet iced tea, it is made for taste and refreshment only. It will not give you wings, it won't make you more energized nor relaxed; it will simply quench your thirst and make you happy!
You drink it cold, you enjoy a little sweetness and that's it. To us, it's more than enough.
Who Drinks Almond Water?
David says: "I've been drinking Almond Water since I was a little boy and 30 years later, I am still drinking it! The original recipe comes from my grandmother. She has been making Almond Water in her kitchen for years. Now that Almond Water is available in a bottle, I am able to take it with me and enjoy it throughout the day! I drink it straight from the bottle or in a glass mixed with ice; I even like to put a drop in my morning coffee."
Almond Water appeals to all ages, it is for everyone looking for something new, a little sweet and most importantly, extremely refreshing and all natural.
