Meet the Team
Miles Gotcher Soov Founder
Dealing with lifelong Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Miles has experienced plenty of doctor visits, medications, and all sorts of other remedies. When his stomach was feeling off (but not enough so to grab the strong medicine) Miles would drink several ginger ales a day. Unhappy with how much sugar and how little real ginger is in ginger ale, he set out to create a healthier alternative made with real ginger juice along with other ingredients with digestive benefits supported by research. After teaming up with food scientists, nutrition experts, and beverage pros, Soov was born! Check out the full story here.
