Solovey was born from an idea by Yasha Estraikh, a Ukrainian living in the UK. Seeing what the Ukrainian people and his family were experiencing, he found himself looking for ways he could offer meaningful support.
He quickly discovered that many brands were looking for ways to tell engaging stories to their customers and teams and raise money for Ukraine, but didn't know how. And so, a range of Ukrainian-inspired drinks collaborations were born.

"Your fields' glory has not yet perished.
Luck will smile and your family be cherished.
Chase your enemy away, like darkness from a sun’s ray.
And you shall love your land as free people who took a stand".
