S. Martinelli & Co. is a family-owned company based in California that has been making gold medal apple juice since 1868. Each bottle contains 100% pure, unfiltered apple juice that is pressed from fresh, whole apples and then pasteurized to preserve its natural flavor and nutrients. The juice is then carbonated to give it a bubbly, effervescent quality. It has a sweet, crisp flavor with a slightly tart finish, similar to regular Martinelli's apple juice. Sparkling apple juice is often enjoyed as a refreshing alternative to soda or other carbonated beverages.
