RootJack Makes Port

40 posts in this topic

'Tis me pleasure to present to all ye scallywags, lubbers, lads & lasses, bilge rats, deck hands, wenches, buccanneers, sea dogs an' honorable pirate cap'n's our latest concoction known as RootJack! I know this here be an abrupt introduction, but the brew be complete an' I would waste no time presentin' a drink what fights off the scurge known as scurvy.

That's right. RootJack has yer full daily dose of Vitamin C! Plus it's tasty to boot. RootJack be a Root Beer with a hint O'Orange flavor an' Vanilla, and enough of a kick to knock the barnacles off yer keel. We call it "The Pirate Energy Drink", an' any crew under the fair wind O'this brew would be hard to put down.

We nary hit ev'ry port yet. We've got just the one ship and a small crew, but RootJack would be sailin' yer way soon as we catch wind. In the mean time, check out our interport home. We'll be addin' new markets there as we find 'em. Yarrr.

A skull full of juicy, fleshy pulp. It's like cannibalism with vitamin C.

Can I order a sample to be shipped all the way to Utah?

Sounds interesting.

As someone who works in branding, I really like how the site works together and the Scurvy-related claims in particular.

Oh, and I say this linked on your site: http://www.pvkii.com/

-A pirates, vikings, and knights combat game.

Well, we know who will win THAT one, right . . .

-- I mean we've ALL know seen the pirate/knight episode of Deadliest Warrior . . .

Though, wouldn't the pirates and Vikings work together? I mean, the Vikings WERE the pirates of the 800-1100 . . .

Funny thing about this... Back when I was a Viking re-enactor and mocking the pirates I encountered, one of the quips I used to toss at the pirates was that they were the Vikings that showed up 1000 years too late and way too far south... :unsure:

Now I tell Vikings that they are the extinct pirates that never got it right.... :D (which is why they are extinct :o )

We are completing a deal with a site that will handle online sales. Once that is done, you'll be able to order 4 packs online from the U.S. and many many other parts of the world.

RootJack has been on the market a total of about 2 weeks. We're distributing out of an area near Chicago. The goal is to get it in to convenience stores all over the country, but that takes time.

Concerning Pirates, Vikings & Knights 2... yes, of course the pirates win! We have a co-op marketing program with that game. Their logo appears on the back of our bottle and RootJack...well, you'll just have to wait for the next version of the game to see what we are doing there.

Thanks for the comments about the web site. When it takes over a year to get a product to taste just right, you have plenty of time to work on marketing. :unsure:

The "energy" in "pirate energy drink" comes from boatloads of caffeine and guarana. There are 10 mg of caffeine per ounce which is about 30-40% less than what you get in a standard cup of coffee. It's still quite a bit if you are sensitive to it however.

:D I am glad I am not the only one who started as Viking and ended a pirate.

I hope that online sales site goes through soon. We need some RootJack in Vegas.

Indeed, and I can personally vouch for the "fights scurvy" claim - since drinking RootJack I've been 100% scurvy free!

Online sales will be available VERY VERY soon. In fact, they have had the product in their warehouse for over a week. Once it is in their system, we will announce it.

Thanks for the nice comments about our website. When you spend a year and a half working on the flavor, it gives you a lot of time to get the website the way you want it. :(

For those pirates that enjoy gamin' on ye olde personal computer, the game Pirates, Vikings & Knights II has been released on Valve's Steam game service. Not only is this a handsome game and a keg O'fun ta boot, thar be also a special bonus. The developers 'ave smuggled RootJack items throughout the game.

We're pretty excited 'bout this since this co-op marketin' agreement be the first O' it's kind. So now that PVKII logo on the back O'the bottle should make more sense. 'Twas a trade, fare and proper.
