Caliwater, the cactus based functional beverage, is now available in the refrigerated beverage section of all Erewhon locations, including their new Studio City location, across Southern California as of November 2021. Erewhon, LA's luxury health-food market, has been committed to providing organic, sustainable, pure, and nutrient-rich foods and products to the communities it serves, which aligns with the beliefs of the Caliwater brand and their origin.

Caliwater is defined by a drive to create innovative, fresh functional beverages that connect us to the Earth and to one another. Inspired by the lush and varied landscapes of California, Founders Oliver Trevena (Actor/Host/Entrepreneur) and native Californian Vanessa Hudgens (Actress/Music Artist/Influencer/Entrepreneur) looked to their own desert regions to locally source Prickly Pear cactus fruit, known for its rare and potent healthful properties. Their vision - to sip on Cali in a can. Prickly Pear is brought to life in beverage form in their quickly growing canned cactus water product, which is not only delicious and organic, but super hydrating and refreshing, and of course filled with rare antioxidants and digestion benefits.
