Years ago I accidentally ruptured my inner ear scuba diving off the California coast and since that day I’ve found myself a bit more susceptible to the adverse effects of motion. Not liking how most of the over-the-counter medications made me feel, I sought out alternatives. In 1945, my grandfather, petty officer third class Glen Claypool, was a landing craft pilot in the South Pacific. Just after his 98th birthday I asked him what he and the soldiers he ferried to the beaches did about sea sickness. He promptly quipped, “Well, you just hung yer head over the side and let her go!”
Well, I don’t like to “let her go” so it became my notion to create a tasty, natural, soothing beverage to help tame the rough seas within. With the guidance of an herbalist friend and utilizing the picky palate of my soda-slurping teenage son, we blended ginger with other traditional, stomach- soothing herbs as well as a pinch of cane sugar. We then added some bubbles for sparkle and (after more test batches than I care to admit)…Voilá! SeaPop was born. Like a ginger-snap dipped in vanilla ice cream, SeaPop’s unique flavor profile and subtle sweetness is a taste to behold. In a world saturated with energy drinks, SeaPop is here to help mellow things out.
Ahoy and enjoy,
