Every story has a beginning… this is ours.
Just months after my debut on Project Runway as the 1st Hijabi modest fashion designer, I was, to my dismay, back home in East Flatbush living with my parents. During this time I was disgruntled and questioning the direction of my life, until it became very clear to me that I needed a perspective shift and a heavy dose of gratitude. I needed to “Bloom where I was planted” (which were the words of inspiration that kept flowing through my mind) and also rediscover my roots.
So I took a walk…. No, I strolled through East Flatbush Brooklyn admiringly- which is something I’d rarely done- and I imagined again. I imagined and thought “what if there’s a beautiful and blessed reason for me to be here now and I can bloom here where I’m currently planted?"
And then I got thirsty, wanted some good Sorrel like my dad’s recipe, got my dad's recipe and simultaneously my new calling- a drink that connected me to my roots, would help people celebrate life instead of moping about it like I previously was and was made of hibiscus flowers! This is how I’d bloom where I was planted. And no it’s not lost on me that hibiscus flowers bloom!
“From being shared amongst exclusive circles of friends, colleagues, and family, to being shared and gifted at your celebrations, together with Brooklyn Brewed Sorrel we’ve proudly played an uplifting part in each other’s lives.”
Today, we’re starting a new journey and we need you to play your important role again.
As we’re growing and times have changed once again post-COVID we need to rise to the occasion of new challenges. During COVID we made a fast pivot that allowed us to continue to stand the test of time like our over 400-year recipe. Post-COVID has brought its new realities too like inflation spikes and wholesale/ retail demands. We must must level up to remain a viable business (hint: increase production to keep costs and our price to you in balance and beat the large inflation spikes + increase our distribution).
We’re taking over 500 preorders to help meet our increased production needs. Please visit our SHOP on this website to order and help expand Brooklyn Brewed Sorrel together.
