It all began when four guys who were beverage buffs sat down to have lunch on a hot Indian summer. They would always share their lunch and one of them would always bring a flask of delicious homemade aampanna with him. It occurred to one of these history enthusiasts that they could commercialize this raw mango ala. And thus began the journey of paper boat. A journey of going back in time and bringing to fore, liquid traditions. Drinks, that the many civilizations of this subcontinent inspired. Drinks, that are practical and delicious. Drinks, that are a product of generations of trial and error. Drinks, that are sadly being lost to the excesses of urban life.
Paper Boat, as its name suggests, stems from the idea of making people trace their way back to the good old days. Its name, structure and, tagline give a soothing, nostalgic feel that makes us miss home and the days of our childhood. It is an effort to revive the traditional Indian drinks that made our summers fun and unforgettable. Adding a perfect blend of creativity and innovation to make the beverages give us an essence of being at home. Paper Boat is a brand with a strong emotional connection.
The very logo of the brand is in the form of a sweet memory that is common to all the people of India. The warm and vibrant colours that they use in packaging make the products eye-catching .

The essence of summer was perfectly brought out through aamras. It’s not only the drinks but also the stories that people related to.
