SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. —Alkaline88 will soon be available in more than 400 United Pacific stores.

Core-Mark, Westlake, Texas, will distribute the bottled water to the Long Beach, Calif.-based convenience-store chain’s locations.

“Alkaline88 will launch in late August or early September in over 400 United Pacific, Rocket-branded c-stores. United Pacific is a market leader in California, Oregon, Washington and Colorado,” said Ricky Wright, president and CEO of The Alkaline Water Co. “The c-store channel remains a focus for us in fiscal 2022. We expect to see a significant increase in volume and revenue from this relationship.”

Alkaline88 is made with an 8.8pH balance and two ingredients: purified water and pink Himalayan rock salt. The brand was developed with a smooth taste that encourages consumers to drink more and fully hydrate, the company said.
