Designing and producing your own energy drink or energy shot to market on your own is much easier than you think. Many canned and bottled beverage contract manufacturers are equipped nowadays to produce and package a drink for you, and many can help with both formulation and labeling, too.
If you've been in a convenience store lately, you've probably noticed a proliferation of energy drinks. Red Bull was the pioneer (founded by a couple of Austrians who drank the original, uncarbonated version, called Krating Daeng, in Thailand), but nowadays, Rockstar, BooKoo, and dozens of others crowd the shelves and refrigerators of your 7-Eleven and gas station mini-mart. What they all seem to have in common is:
- sugar (although some diet ones have sucralose instead)
- caffeine, and lots of it
- some herbs that are supposed to give you energy, like ginseng
- vitamins, supposedly to help give you energy, as well
- taurine, an amino acid; I think it was supposed to conjure an image of a bull (taurus)
- a pretty consistent, bubble gum-like flavor
Energy shots, like 5-Hour Energy, focus on smaller form factors, like small 2 oz bottles, and instead deliver the caffeine payload in a non-carbonated, more intensely-flavored beverage. Shots are not necessarily drunk refrigerated, either. (They've often sold at convenience store counters, near the point of sale, instead of in the refrigerated section, since they're not designed to quench thirst.)
A Bay Area energy drink
Why did Red Bull outsell Krating Daeng?
Krating Daeng came first, then Red Bull. Why is Red Bull a recognized name among twenty-something partiers, and Krating Daeng only known in Thailand? MARKETING. Red Bull founder Dietrich Mateschitz used to work in marketing for Procter & Gamble, one of the world's marketing giants.
Mateschitz gave Red Bull:
- a name and a brand
- a catchy tagline ("it gives you wings")
- a fetching design, based on the original logo
- carbonation; Krating Daeng is not carbonated, and thus tastes a little like medicine (the clunky brown bottle doesn't help, either). Ironically, energy shots are surging in popularity nowadays, despite their more medicinal flavor.
- distribution in the US and Europe, far bigger markets than Thailand
- advertising and promotion
How can I make one?
Two words: contract manufacturing. There are hundreds of companies that will make what you tell them to make. They'll produce and bottle it for you, and sometimes even help you formulate it. Many have standard energy drink formulas, that you can alter the flavor, color or ingredient profile of to make your product unique.
Here are a few companies that can do this:
- U.S. Beverage Manufacturing in Newport Beach, California
- Flavorman in Louisville, Kentucky
- Adirondack Beverages in Scotia, New York
- NVE Pharmaceuticals, Andover, New Jersey
- Monarch Custom Beverages, Canton, Georgia
Typical ingredient and flavor/color profile for an energy drink
- high fructose corn syrup
- crystalline fructose
- sucralose (Splenda)
Acidulants (makes it sour):
- citric acid
- phosphoric acid
- malic acid
- Vitamins B6, B12, C, E, Niacin, Riboflavin, Thiamine and Pantothenic Acid
- Taurine (an amino acid)
- Bee Pollen
- Herbal extracts, such as ginseng, guarana, milk thistle, ginkgo biloba, damiana, horny goat weed, yerba mate and rosemary
- sodium benzoate
- potassium sorbate
- no preservatives (pasteurization)
Colors: Range from colorless to dark brown (using caramel color) to bright red, yellow and orange.
Flavors (natural and artificial):

yakuzaspit on August 12, 2012:
I do believe if you check, you will find that taurine received its name from the scientist who first discovered it in a bull testicle almost 100 years ago. HOWEVER, it does not come from only bull testicles, or testicles in general, but is found in most mammals. I do believe it is synthesized now in mass quantities for things such as energy drinks and many other uses. Including medical uses.
Ive even heard some people adamantlyly insist Red Bull is made with real Bull urine.. which is totally false. And Red Bull believeve was actually invented in Thailand, then marketed and promoted as Red Bull by a marketing firm in Austria

Contary to what the author says about the thai energy drink being first, the first was actually a Japanese drink. I can't remember the name or if it is still in production. However, the second to market is a Korean drink called Bacchus-F which is still being manufactured. Actually, as a kids I used to sneak, what was then called Bacchus-D. However, these energy drinks are NOT for kids or for huge amounts of consumption. Also, if you have a lot of, what the chinese call "internal heat" then you shouldn't be ingesting very much of products that include ginseng as an ingredient. If you normally sweat a lot or get hot easily, then you may have a lot of "internal heat." Red Bulls marketing have created a billion dollar energy drink industry, which the west has swallowed hook, line and sinker! You won't find many kids wandering around town drinking energy drinks in asia.

Hello there Everyone I am trying to help my husband with his energy drink Idea and all the companies you have named turned him down due to the fact that they do not have the time or resources to do his invention. But however we have come up with another solution to market it ourselves but all I need is a company to help make the can design/finished prototype and development just a can. That's all does anyone have any ideas. Iv already been to many companies. And the 1 website i found to make your own can is way too expensive and i have a budget and besides we already have the design drawn all we want to do is transfer it to the can and get the ball rolling. btw this energy drink has a purpose unlike all the other energy drinks out there.
Any Suggestions would be great!

Muzi on December 04, 2010:
The reason I don't want to create a website 4 now is becoz I am still tryng to patent the idea with the lawyers. You are abolutely correct the name and branding sells more than the drink taste. Thus I have created one of the best name and brand since coke and red bull. And the markerting methods to use are out of this world. I already have orders from some countries and the production haven't begun yet. So I really need to start with the formula. Contact me on my e-mail: email@example.com, cell: 0732345022. I reside in South Africa has my own other small businesses and they are doing well. Contact me soon. thnx
Answer Dude on December 04, 2010:
Do you have a website - maybe I could help you with a little more information. I would keep the ingredients simple; water, caffeine, b vitamins, and a flavor. In my years of experience - the most important thing is the actual energy drink NAME (taste is second)! Before I forget - the web address I gave above is wrong - it should be www.get5150.com (or Google: Semi-Sweeetened Energy Mix). I knew it had 5150 in it somewhere.
Muzi on December 03, 2010:

Answer Dude on December 03, 2010:
Want to make an energy drink like monster, rockstar, or red bull? All you need to do is add liquid caffeine mix to sparkling Apple Cider (carbonated). You will hardly be able to tell the difference. Seriously, the taste, look, fizz, and energy, will blow you away.
You can purchase the inexpensive 5150 Energy (Semi-Sweetened Mix) at www(dot)5150(dot)com. The thing to remember is that powder caffeine will not work. It will not dissolve in cold beverages. And, even in hot beverages it will only dissolve slightly.
Another great advantage to making your own energy drink is that you control how much caffeine you want to add. Add a little or a lot – it depends on how much of an energy boost you want – you decide!

I have a different point of view on energy drinks. Energy drinks are artificial energy boosters. True energy is produced by our body. When we feed our body well, our body energy is at its optimum level.When the cells are well-fed,all of the bodily organs are working. Eating the right kinds of food is one key to achieving higher level of enery. You may check my hubs too.

Lets say you want to hire a company to create a custom formula. How can you protect yourself so they do not sell that formula to anyone else

Mr.Seymour - are you selling your energy drink in UK / EU market or US? Is it going well? Did you do your own development / flavour application? If so, well done. Iknow a bottling company in the UK that could perhaps help,what stage are you at?

Im seeking a partner to produce and distribute energy drink in East African region.
The demand for energy drink is still not met and this is good for those interested in exploiting this untapped market.
My e-mail is email@example.com and my company is Silopak Limited, established and legally registered in Nairobi, Kenya.

LMAO YES ITS THAT EASY EVERYONE.... lets make companies, yaaaay and become bazillionairs and make energy drinks and anything else we want. Woo throw some stuff into a glass and have energy drinks for millions.
Haha this article is hillarious, the writer has no experience in business sense. Just get ingredients and become bazillionairs. It will cost you about one hundred grand just for the lawyers necessary, in case your "energy drink" messes someone up and they decide to sue you for everything you have. :/

I've been drinking energy drinks sense the carbonated red bull was marketed i am very much into fitness and lifting weights if it wasn't for energy drinks i wouldn't have the ability to work out the way i do. Now, due to this fact I have a great idea to produce an energy drink that will overcome all the other products out now in the market. I am very confident that with the "Name and Ingredients" for my energy drink it will sale! especially to the American people but I don't have the experience nor the funds to make this idea a reality therefore, I would need an "angel Investor" and a company in Miami,Florida to please HELP me fund and market this idea. Thank you soo much! e-mail Apadroni@aol.com
