Recess began from a simple observation from the co-founders, that people tend to be the most creative and productive when they are calm. They set out to create a beverage that would do just that, essentially canning a feeling. Recess is a consumer wellness brand, creating products that aim to help people feel calm, cool and collected. Brewing real fruit with sparkling water, they have added a variety of functional ingredients such as hemp, adaptogens, or magnesium. Each can is hand packed in a small batch facility in Hudson Valley, New York. Recess takes transparency and accountability to the utmost of importance, even posting lab results on their website for customers to view.
