Mega-convenience-store retailer Buc-ee’s in November will begin carrying Golden Grail Beverages’ Spider Energy Drink.

Spider Energy Drink comes in flavors such as Strawberry Lemonade, Citrus Bite and Zero Citrus Bite. Another flavor, WidowMaker, blends 300 milligrams of caffeine, taurine, ginseng and guarana.

“Golden Grail Beverages and Buc-ee’s have joined forces in a strategic partnership that unites two iconic brands with a shared commitment to quality, value and excellence,” said Russell Kaffenberger, chief revenue officer of Golden Grail Beverages, Weston, Florida. “This alliance will allow Golden Grail Beverages to expand its distribution footprint and reach new consumers. At the same time, Buc-ee’s will be able to offer its customers a wider variety of premium beverages.”

Golden Grail Beverages is focused on driving innovation, promoting growth and managing a diverse beverage portfolio with responsible investment. Its portfolio includes brands in emerging and expanding beverage categories, such as Spider Energy Drink, Sway Energy Drink, Trevi Fruit Essence Water, Tickle Water, Sketch Can for Tweens, Cause Water, KOZ Water and Scorpion Energy Hemp/CBD. It is dedicated to eco-friendly practices and replacing plastic with more sustainable alternatives to reduce plastic pollution.
