Is HARD® Alcoholic? or like one of those one of those hard seltzers?
There is a night and day difference between “hard seltzers" and HARD®
Those that claim to be “hard” are seltzers mixed with some malt liquor at around 5% ABV.
Huh? ...... 5% what??
Barely something that you would consider “hard”
Putting aside the malt liquor, whats the rest made of?
Seltzer or "carbonated water" is just water and bubbles.. Nothing more.
The HARD® TRUTH?
seltzer is just a blank canvas for true artisans to paint a masterpiece upon.
(If they cared enough to try)
Inspired by You, Created for You ™
HARD® is that masterpiece.
HARD® is the soft drink replacement.™
HARD® is our brand name.
The single most meticulously crafted beverages available….Anywhere!
Oh..and by the way...
HARD® is Caffeinated and enhanced with B-Vitamins.
HARD® refers to an attitude, not the ABV.
HARD® is about your mindset, not malt liquor.
To compare others to HARD®
would be like comparing water to champagne.
Drink HARD® - Live HARD®
-We would however like to thank those "hard" companies for spending all that money on marketing and promoting the HARD® brand name.-
Is HARD® an energy drink?
First we must ask..
What do "energy drinks" have in common?
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Artificial Flavors
- Artificial Colors
- Artificial Stimulants
- Anxiety and Heart Palpitations
- And they taste like… _________
The answer is a definitive No!
HARD® is NOT an “energy drink”
If HARD® isn't an energy drink.. Then what is HARD® ?
HARD® is a family of
Premium Crafted Caffeinated and Enhanced Sparkling Beverages.
Yes, that is a mouthful... Just say HARD®
HARD® gives the health-conscious consumer a dynamic alternative to coffee and energy drinks.
Made with natural flavors, cane sugar, stevia, and enhanced with caffeine and B-Vitamins.
HARD® is FREE of Taurine, corn syrup, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, or colors.
HARD® is responsible, effective, invigorating, and crash free.... and without question, the best tasting drinks you will EVER have...Period!
Why doesn't HARD® use artificial sweeteners or artificial flavors?
In crafting a beverage from scratch, HARD® had at its disposal every sweetener and ingredient imaginable.
Then why not use artificial sweeteners and flavors?
In one word… Respect!
It’s believed by many that the motivation to use artificial sweeteners and flavors by the global beverage giants is due to cost savings and a way to make their profits skyrocket.
Artificial flavors and sweeteners are extremely cheap and the long term effects on the the body are very questionable.
Please do your own research, but did you ever wonder why diabetes and many digestive issues run almost in sync with the use of those artificial ingredients over the last 20-30 years? (It definitely makes you wonder.)
To the artificial sweeteners, flavors, and junk ….
We say no thank you!
At HARD® You're family!
We respect you and want you to be with us for a very long time!
Why does HARD® use cane sugar and stevia?
Let’s face it...Cane sugar tastes amazing when it comes to beverages.
At HARD® we crafted our flavor profiles in a dynamically unique and exceptional way.
By using our proprietary blend of cane sugar and stevia, we were able to maximize the mouthfeel and vibrant flavor you have dreamed of while simultaneously cutting calories by 15% - 20% compared to other beverages.
Why doesn't HARD® use any coloring?
Coloring used by other beverage companies come from sources that may surprise you.
Some of the coloring they use are artificial and some that they call “natural”
We know artificial coloring is terrible for you, but did you know that some coloring called “natural” actually comes from insects?!
Crushed bug shells may "technically" be “natural”, but do you really want that in your drink?
You’re right!... That is disgusting.
That’s why at HARD®, we don’t use ANY coloring.
Quality is not only what you put in, but also what you leave out!
(As a bonus... You can worry less about spilling and staining your clothes.)
HARD® makes a Club soda. What then is the difference between HARD® CLUB and a seltzer?
As you already know…. Seltzer is just water and bubbles. Club soda on the other hand is far more complex!
A pristine balance of premium salts and bicarbonates transform carbonated water into HARD® CLUB, its crisp, bubbly and effervescent the way a sparkling Club should be!
HARD® CLUB accentuates and opens up flavors in ways water and bubbles alone simply cant.
Now add to that the benefits of Caffeine and B-Vitamins!
Straight or mixed... HARD® CLUB is dynamically innovative and unmatched by every measure.
To drive home the difference between seltzer vs. CLUB.
Have you ever heard someone ask for a Scotch and Seltzer? (Neither have we)
Does HARD® make a sugar and sweetener free option?
Want caffeinated refreshment free of sugar or any sweeteners?
HARD® CLUB is the choice for you!

If HARD® is safe, why do you not recommend it for young children?
One of the most important things for a developing and growing body is a good nights sleep. It's during sleep that the human body grows and recovers.
It’s ultimately the decision of parents and guardians to decide if those in their care should enjoy HARD®
HARD® is as safe as a premium brewed cup of coffee, but equally, we want the youth of today to get the proper rest needed for them to grow strong!
If you're too young for a cup of coffee... you might have to wait... Sorry kiddo :(
Don't worry, we’ll be here for you to enjoy when you’re ready for the “HARD® Experience”

What makes HARD® Tonic the most flavorful Tonic Water in existence?
Tonic Water gets its unique flavor from Quinine, a natural extract from the Cinchona tree family.
Unfortunately most beverage companies use artifical flavors, and that just doesnt come close, neither in taste nor quality.
HARD® Tonic uses only ultra quality real Quinine.
Crafted with precision and attention to every detail, HARD® delivers the perfect balance of bitter and sweet to produce the best tasting Tonic cocktails ever!
Daddy would be so proud!
Is mixing caffeine with alcohol dangerous?
Caffeine can mask the effects of alcohol consumption, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that alcohol and caffeine together are dangerous.
People have been drinking “Irish Coffee” (whiskey and coffee) for generations.
There are many people who care about you, and you have a lifetime of experiences and memories ahead of you to create.
Be responsible, stay safe, and keep others safe as well!
If you're driving, skip the cocktail and grab a cold can of any HARD® flavor you desire and enjoy yourself!
