<p>Features in Globe and Mail and MacLean's Magazine have spurred hundreds of phone calls and e-mails to the company, looking for the product that comes in a tall purple can. Now that 7-Eleven has signed on, these thirsty consumers can rest easy, knowing relaxation is one grape tasting beverage away.</p>
<p/>
<p>"We have anxiously been waiting to provide drank(TM) to our eager Canadian consumers," said <span class="xn-person">Peter Bianchi</span>, CEO of Innovative Beverage Group. "When we began receiving customer service calls and noticed a 'Petition To Get 'Drank Beverage' In Canada!' Facebook group calling for drank(TM) availability, we knew we had to work hard to get this deal done. By working with such a prestigious company, such as PX Enterprises, widely known for their dedication and support in launching and distributing new products, as well as 7-Eleven, an internationally recognized brand, we give ourselves a great opportunity to share our Extreme Relaxation(TM) beverage with <span class="xn-location">Canada</span>."</p>
<p/>
<p>The 7-Eleven distribution deal was made possible through a partnership with PX Enterprises, a Canadian-based brand and management company responsible for bringing successful U.S. products over the border to further success in <span class="xn-location">Canada</span>.</p>
<p/>
<p>"We are thrilled to provide drank(TM) Extreme Relaxation(TM) to Canadians thirsty for a great tasting relaxation beverage," said David A. Leb, Vice President of PX Enterprises. "Like our American neighbors, we are busy at work, busy with our families, busy with recreational activities or just plain busy; it is important to remember that we all need time to calm down, and by drinking drank(TM) beverage, our consumers can now purchase a proven way to relax."</p>
<p/>
<p>drank(TM) is the antithesis of the herd of energy drinks crowding the functional beverage sector. With a slogan of "slow your roll(TM)," this lightly carbonated relaxation beverage is infused with melatonin, valerian root and rose hips to provide a relaxing effect for consumers. Since launching drank(TM) in select markets in early 2008, it has quickly become the go-to beverage for people looking to relax their mind and body.</p>
