About The Ferm Fatale LLC: Ferm Fatale is the world’s ONLY wildly fermented zero-proof cocktail in classic cocktail flavors–Sugar free and non-alcoholic gut-healthy alternatives. Ferm Fatale was birthed in 2015 on stage at BevNet Live Start-Up Beverage of the Year Showdown as the only pre-market competitor when the term ‘social beverage’ was introduced to the industry by Julie, helping forge a global movement around ‘alcohol alternative’ options. Julie was inspired after feeling ‘left out’ of the party in her 20’s when she couldn’t have alcohol which spurred the idea 15 yrs later. She pitched the idea to seed investors back in 2014 but it wasn’t until 2019 Ferm Fatale made it to the shelf at Erewhon Markets in LA, later launching DTC with www.fermfatale.com January 2020. As we all know a global pandemic happened shortly after, but Julie was invited back to the BevNet side stage again Winter 2021 in Santa Monica showcasing a secondary line of fermented tonic waters, talking about how starting a new category has come with it’s challenges, especially as a woman. Julie has now raised over a million dollars and took the company through a total rebrand recently, focusing on the core line, reformulating, and repackaging from glass to 8oz sleek cans. The brand relaunched Oct 1, 2022. Julie has been a big part of what is currently a $739M industry and the fastest growing segment of food & beverage in the world right now. As we all know, startups aren’t for wussies.
