Taika Spirit Drink, a brand that embodies the rich flavors and cultural heritage of Kerala, is the brainchild of two visionary entrepreneurs, Saijesh Joseph and Ajith Kumar. With Saijesh‘s culinary expertise and Ajith’s IT proficiency, they embarked on a journey to create a world-class brand that would captivate taste buds and celebrate their roots.
Saijesh, a professional chef with an illustrious career in renowned world-class restaurants, had always been passionate about cooking. During the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, he found solace in rediscovering his great grandfather’s cherished recipe for vattu, a traditional Kerala drink. Saijesh’s friends were fortunate enough to taste this culinary treasure, and it was during one such gathering that he met Ajith, an IT professional with a keen eye for business opportunities.
As Ajith savored the vattu, he instantly recognized its potential to transcend boundaries and become a brand that could represent the cultural richness of Kerala. Envisioning the global appeal of this unique drink, they joined forces to bring Taika Spirit Drink to life. Their journey began with relentless research, experimentation, and perfecting the recipe to ensure that each sip would transport the drinker to the enchanting landscapes of Kerala.
In November 2022, Taika Spirit Drink made its grand debut. Initially, the brand gained popularity among their close-knit circle of friends and the vibrant Malayali community. As word spread about the exceptional taste and cultural significance of Taika, demand surged, prompting Saijesh and Ajith to expand their reach beyond the local community. Today, Taika Spirit Drink is available in the province of Ontario, with plans to further extend its distribution across Canada.
What sets Taika Spirit Drink apart is its ability to bridge cultures and bring people together. While it resonates deeply with the Malayali community, it has also found a warm reception among Canadians from diverse backgrounds. The brand’s presence at social gatherings and celebrations has become a symbol of unity, celebrating the harmonious blend of tradition and innovation.
Looking ahead, Saijesh and Ajith have ambitious plans for Taika Spirit Drink. They aim to make their product available in LCBO stores and establish partnerships with restaurants nationwide, ensuring that Canadians from coast to coast can experience the essence of Kerala. Additionally, they aspire to share the flavors of Taika with the world, with aspirations of exporting their creation to global markets, including their beloved motherland, Kerala.
Taika Spirit Drink has become synonymous with quality, authenticity, and the spirit of Kerala. The brand’s success is a testament to the dedication, vision, and unwavering commitment of Saijesh Joseph and Ajith Kumar. Through their unique blend of culinary mastery and business acumen, they have crafted a brand that resonates with both the Malayali community and the wider Canadian audience.
Taika Spirit Drink invites Canadians to embark on a sensory journey, embracing the vibrant flavors of Kerala and experiencing the joy of cultural fusion. With every sip, one can savor the passion, dedication, and love poured into each bottle of Taika. Join the Taika movement and elevate your drinking experience with the spirit of Kerala, blended with Canadian warmth and hospitality. Cheers to the success of Taika Spirit Drink, a testament to the power of passion, collaboration, and the celebration of heritage!
