With limited production runs from time to time, cases of Clearly would sell for outrageous sums on online retail websites. Kind of like a fine scotch club for for sparkling waters. We thought, “Why don’t we put together a production run and sell it directly to our fans?” In February 2014 we launched the Clearly Canadian Pre-order Campaign.
In a matter of weeks, our fans and supporters in Canada, the US, and around the world preordered 40,000 cases of Clearly Canadian.
- A supporter in Sweden ordered 40 cases
- A super fan in Tokyo, Japan ordered 400 cases
- The most popular flavor was Mountain Blackberry
We were amazed by the willingness, dedication and tremendous patience of our team of loyal fans and supporters. That critical infusion of cash and support allowed Clearly to restart large-scale commercial production. We are growing distribution everywhere and could not have done this without you.
Anyone who’s ever participated in crowdfunding knows that it’s not all sunshine and roses. The costs and complexities of sourcing bottle manufacturing, ingredients, flavors, package design, trays, wraps, shipping, etc… all took longer than we’d hoped. Nevertheless, our pre-order fans stuck with us, and, after a small run of Country Raspberry in early 2016, you were able to enjoy your first Clearly Canadian in years.
Even though it’s been a bumpy road, we’ve been humbled by your messages of encouragement and patience. Many of you have reached out and we’ve been inspired by the friendships we’ve made.
If you participated in the preorder campaign and didn't recieve your product as expected, please email us.
The team at Clearly Canadian are a loopy bunch of geneXers who took on the opportunity to breathe new life into a beloved sparkling water.
We’ve brought your favorite Canadian refreshment back to more than 5000 locations across North America and we’re still growing.
We have done all of this with a tight budget, a dedicated team and a large and growing bunch of patient, understanding, inspired, AWESOME fans from around the world. You supported us, cheered us on, and are as much a part of our success as anything.
