A blessing in disguise! On this day, Founder of Blüm Beverages, Candace Coleman, was literally dropped on her head. Ouch.
March - June 2014
During Candace's 3 Month recovery, alcohol consumption was out of the question. Absolutely appalled by her social beverage menu choices, she was inspired to brew her own healthy fine botanical blends. She chilled, poured into wine glasses and little did she know at the time, Blüm was beginning to take root.
June 2014 - February 2015
Life went on for Candace; family, work, yoga, travel, socializing & entertaining. While out socializing she found herself craving her botanical brews. She was also searching for an alcohol free drink to transition to after a glass of wine or two. Once again, the same dismal menu offerings for the transition drink.

Epiphany day! Candace knew she could not be the only one in the world that felt the same underwhelming feeling for current alcohol free "social" beverage offerings. She made a commitment to work on her formulas and start an alcohol free beverage company for those who are social, and can not or choose not to drink alcohol.

Resigns from her 19 year successful career to dedicate her time, heart & soul to Blüm.
May 10, 2015 - June 9. 2016
Blüm's Kickstarter is launched, successful and funds. Candace and team are eternally grateful to all founding supporters! Some important incredible honorable mentions go out to Melinda Bruskrud, Jim & Linda Wilhem & Robert Malyszek. All of the amazing supporters make the first production possible.

November 6. 2016
Celebration! Blüm's journey in product development took 20 months of twists & turns, peaks & valleys, but most of all joy & excitement. Candace and her highly regarded, incredibly talented and extremely supportive team are proud to be adding Blüm's Zen & Uplift Blend to the social menu. We hope more enthusiasm, healthy choices and smart conversations will be added to the social scene now that Blüm is available.
