Renowned for its cold-pressed Performance Juices, non-dairy Grown Up Milkshakes, first-to-market adaptogenic Hotshots and the UK’s first Cannabidiol (CBD) soft drink Dutch Courage, Botanic Lab
products are unapologetically taking over the shelves of Waitrose, Selfridges, Holland & Barrett, Ocado, Co-Op and EAT.
Since 2014, Rebekah’s strategic vision and business acumen have been the driving force behind
Botanic Lab, rewriting the rulebook on stereotypical ‘health drinks’ and catapulting the business to
success in a very competitive landscape.
Rebekah followed her studies in economics with a successful 10-year career as a city corporate
financier. She has a tough and pragmatic approach to business, developed and fine-tuned in a
challenging and sometimes ruthless environment. She is a firm believer that one of the key personality traits required in a successful entrepreneur is an abundance of resilience, preferably accompanied by a sense of humour.
Rebekah is also an experienced yoga teacher, having practiced traditional ashtanga yoga for many years. She knows the health and wellbeing sector inside out, both as a consumer and a business owner, but is unashamedly cynical about it.
She says, “I’m no health pin up. Our products were developed for someone just like me. Yes, I’m health aware, but with the best will in the world I drink, never restrict what I eat and don’t have time to devote my existence to food prep and gym selfies. I won’t feel guilty about that. I am also a stickler for quality. I want the best that my money can buy and I want it to be convenient, taste good and if it looks great as well, that’s a bonus. Life is too short for bad drinks, whatever your lifestyle choices. That’s why we create drinks that use ancient botanicals in a new way. Drinks that look to the future. Drinks that do something.”
