Founder & CEO, Asarasi Sparkling Tree Water

Looking to enhance the customer experience shouldn’t stop at the plate. Having a unique beverage option that embraces renewability and sustainability can help you truly stand out. At Asarasi, we have pioneered the recovery and bottling of “naturally pure tree-drawn water”, creating new value added farm-based products from a truly sustainable and eco-friendly source. This is all accomplished at price parity with current bottled water products, making it easy for the customer to feel good about making a positive contribution.

A Way To Save The Planet, One Drop At A Time

Looking for a warm activity to do with his daughter in the middle of a Vermont winter, Founder & CEO Adam Lazar decided to attend a maple syrup open house. As the farmer went through the production process, Adam witnessed him pouring thousands of gallons of pure water down the drain. After talking about it with the farmer, it was realized that maple producers use only 3% of the saps they collect for syrup and maple products. The remaining 97% is pure tree water that is not utilized and discarded. The idea was born that this was a new source of incredibly pure water that had never been “tapped”!

The Most Unique Source On Earth

Asarasi has literally tapped into nature! Each year up to 1 billion gallons of incredibly pure, naturally filtered water is harmlessly extracted from living maple trees. We have innovated a way to carbonate, store and package this water for a great beverage experience! By sourcing water from living wells, trees, we have a brand new source of water that is the world’s ONLY sustainable and renewable bottle of sparkling water.

From Farm to Bottle

Now you can really trust your water. At Asarasi our mission is to provide the consumer a responsible, sustainable and healthy choice when it comes to bottled water products while creating an outlet for a farm by-product that adds to farmer prosperity. Our water is sourced directly from maple trees right here in the United States.

Water For The Future

Our drinkable water supplies are dwindling. We can all be a part of bringing a new source of water that helps add to our water supply. Having a commitment to sustainability, renewability and community will help us make a positive impact on the world’s water resources for generations to come. Join us in helping shape a new world of water responsibility.
