Refresh your tastebuds – Enter The DRGN – DRGN is the world’s first turmeric-infused ‘superdrink’, a fusion of ancient Asian wisdom with modern Western science. At just 53 calories per 250ml serving, this remarkable drink is both low in sugar and free from caffeine or artificial ingredients. Incorporating the ancient powers of turmeric, black pepper, and ginger with modern research, DRGN’s proprietary refreshment also brims with vitamins and electrolytes together with Austrian spring water and natural citrus.
Using a complex extraction process, the drink is packed with nutrient-rich botanicals to produce DRGN’s invigorating and healthy soft drink. Each serving contains 50% of an individual’s recommended daily intake of Vitamin C, 30% of B-Vitamins and 30% Vitamin E to reduce fatigue and tiredness, restore normal energy-yielding metabolism and support the immune system by protecting cells from oxidative stress.
Following DRGN’s launch, it quickly accumulated positive reviews. FoodBev Media shortlisted DRGN as a finalist in its World Beverage Innovation Awards and has been steadily gaining momentum within the beverage industry, winning the Gold Award for Innovation at the Lunch Show in late 2019.

While spending a near decade living in Hong Kong, DRGN founder Vishal Sodha had the opportunity to learn about the benefits of various botanicals, herbs, and spices used across the Asia Pacific region. In particular, Vishal was intrigued with turmeric and ginger, widely used in South East Asia as powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties. Japan, for example, has always used turmeric for its powerful detoxifying properties to help protect and improve liver function.
Upon returning to London, Vishal decided to pursue his vision of creating a product that incorporated the health benefits of traditional Eastern medicine – with a fresh and stylish twist. Using his knowledge and experience with Eastern ‘superfood’ ingredients, Vishal worked alongside a food science and technology team to conduct best-in-class research and development. They eventually perfected a functional beverage brimming with 15 health-boosting ingredients but with the taste profile of a refreshing and sophisticated adult soft drink.
