When Sparkke Change Beverage Company set up shop, it tackled one big issue straight away: the lack of gender diversity in the alcohol industry. This Adelaide-based initiative was founded by and is led by women, something that's still a rarity in the field. And, that's not the only change that it's committed to.

Via its natural craft range of beers and ciders — including through its product names and packaging — Sparkke Change raises awareness for worthy causes and important social issues. Its apple cider draws attention to sexual consent, its alcoholic ginger beer sheds a light on Australia's treatment of asylum seekers and its hard lemonade calls out the difficulties women experience in securing start-up funding. Racism, climate change, saving the bees and banning plastic straws are some of the other subjects that have earned dedicated tipples as well.

Sparkke Change's lineup is available to buy from its via its virtual store.
