Szent, a Los Angeles, CA-based beverage startup innovating the water category, raised $2.2m in funding.
Backers included FirstMark Capital co-chairman Gerald Poch.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its presence into traditional retail, continue to bring awareness to the brand and invest in the next generation of its products.
Launched in October 2018 by Shawn Griffis, Szent is a flavored beverage brand using a reverse osmosis purification process to offer core still flavors including Passionfruit, Tangerine, Tropical, Pineapple and Mint, with plans to introduce a sparkling line later this year.
Currently available only on Amazon, a forthcoming national retail presence will debut individual bottles priced at $2.25 each.
