"We have become aware of misinformation being circulated about AriZona [Iced Tea] and we would like to make sure statements about our company are correct. As many of you know, AriZona Beverages proudly traces its origins back to New York. In 1992, two hard working guys from Brooklyn with a dream created AriZona Iced Tea. Since then, and despite the wonderful success AriZona has enjoyed throughout the United States and internationally, we have remained loyal to our family run business based in New York. For the last 16 years our headquarters have remained on Long Island where we continue to sell and distribute AriZona Iced Teas and beverages.
We are very proud to be an American company with roots in New York and we look forward to continuing to provide you with the high quality and value driven products we’ve been making for the last 18 years." – Don Vultaggio, the founder and chairman of Arizona Beverages, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY wants his customers to know that AriZona iced tea has NOTHING to do with the fascist state of Arizona.
