Arizona Beverages USA (stylized as AriZona) is an American producer of many flavors of iced tea, juice cocktails, and energy drinks based in Woodbury, New York.[2] Arizona's first product was made available in 1992.

Arizona is known for its "Big Can" drinks holding 23 fl. oz. (680 ml) of iced teas, juice drinks and other beverages that retail for around the price of US$0.99 in the United States and C$1.29 in Canada.

The "Arnold Palmer blend" of iced tea and lemonade has been commercially available since the 1990s, though Arizona has since risen to become the most popular primary distributor of the beverage, with over $100 million in sales in 2010.[3]

Arizona also distributes packed trays of tortilla chip products, consisting of "Nachos 'n' Cheese" and "Salsa 'n' Chips".[4]


The company roots trace back to 1971 when friends John Ferolito and Don Vultaggio opened a beverage distribution business in Brooklyn, New York. The company was a successful beer distributor. In 1990, they saw the success of Snapple (also a Brooklyn-based company founded in the 1970s) bottled juices and teas, and attempted to make their product. In 1992, they produced the first bottles of their own AriZona teas.[5]

The same products in 473 ml (16  oz) bottles are sold at a premium, roughly 2–3 times the canned price. Arizona Iced tea cans were briefly recalled in Canada in 2007 due to a can defect, before being re-introduced at the CAD .99 price. They sell a variety of iced tea and juice drinks. As of approximately December 20, 2014, the 680 ml (23 fl.oz.) canned Arizona beverages were unavailable until late January / Early February 2015 because the company sought to find a Canadian distributor, no longer using Coke for distribution. The company has a bottling plant in Mississauga and uses local distributors across the country.
