From Survivor to Entrepreneur, Abi-Maria Gomes Is Making a Splash in the Beverage Industry


San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/01/2013 -- GRC Beverages LLC, a leading California-based beverage company that specializes in upscale super beverages, has today announced the all new Xi Acai,  the ready to drink alcoholic cocktail in a bottle,  is now available in San Francisco, Las Vegas, Oklahoma, Hawaii, Montana, and now Connecticut.

Riding on a unprecedented high since its official launch earlier this year (March 2013), Xi Acai was recently awarded a gold medal at the 2013 Los Angeles International Spirits Awards  and named Best New Product at the 2013 Nightclub & Bar Show.

“The goal is to go global and share the exotic flavor and health benefits of the acai berry,” says an excited Abi-Maria Gomes, the Brazilian-born reality show star turned entrepreneur and head of the thriving GRC Beverages, LLC.

Xi Acai, which is an exotic drink  made of silver craft rum, acai berries, and blackberries sweetened with agave,  is very low in calories, full of antioxidants, high in omegas, and gluten free.

According to Gomes, the former CBS Survivor Star is making a splash in the beverage industry, Xi Acai is more than an exotic flavored drink.

“In fact, it has become a cultural experience that feels like a carnival in a bottle,” notes Gomes, whose “Life is this good” motto is spurring her on to bring a whole new variety of healthy yet fun cocktails, made with natural juices, to the market.

“People who enjoy the nightlife yet, like being outdoors, are healthy and adventurous, and want to celebrate and enjoy amazing cocktails, but don't want to worry about high calories, today are finding a true companion in Xi Acai, which is low in calories, low glycemic and gluten free,” notes Gomes, a student of business with a diverse professional background, business ambition, and experience ranging from private equity to real estate to technology.

Pointing that Xi Acai makes incredible cocktails, Gomes says it provides for a healthier way to party and have fun.

“It’s not so much about you simply serving a glass of Xi Acai cocktails that has been poured over ice or mix with other spirits, but when you also think about the experience of enjoying a bottle of Xi, it's like you're going on a different destination that comes with a whole lot of health benefits thrown in.  In other words,  it's basically an exotic trip in a bottle,” says Gomes, a native to Brazil who has full US citizenship and resides in Los Angeles. As a determined and persistent leader, Gomes’ passion for luxury, upscale products and global travel are evident in her strategic focus and work ethic. A former CBS Survivor Reality Show star, Abi-Maria is a spokeswoman and brand ambassador for the entire line of GRC Beverages products.

Like Carnival in a Bottle, but please enjoy Xi Acai Cocktails responsibly.
