about

Aurora is a line of superior sparkling beverages made with sustainably grown hemp and hops from the Pacific Northwest. Bright, balanced, and refreshing, Aurora is made in small batches with a proprietary blend of whole plant extracts to deliver a layered experience that restores and rejuvenates the mind and body.

Female founded and operated by a team of beverage industry professionals and cannabis enthusiasts with decades of combined experience, Aurora is more than a fad, but an enduring and authentic new expression of refreshment. Born alongside the legalization of recreational cannabis in Oregon, Aurora's' beverages introduce the benefits of cannabinoids and plant alchemy to new consumers and enthusiasts in a thoughtful and inspired concoction.

Aurora's sparkling hemp beverages are delightfully smooth cloudy refreshers brimming with citrus, herbal and floral aromas and infused with 25mg of broad spectrum, organically grown hemp CBD. This year, Aurora's offerings have expanded beyond hemp to include sparkling beverages infused with Pacific Northwest grown hops extract. Hops and hemp both belong to the Cannabaceae plant family and share many flavors and aromas. Pleasantly bitter, piney, and citrusy, the hops infused elixirs are elevated, enticing non-alcoholic refreshments with wonderfully soothing benefits.

founding story

Born alongside the legalization of recreational cannabis in Oregon, Aurora's beverages introduce the benefits of cannabinoids and whole plant extracts to new consumers and enthusiasts in a thoughtful and inspired concoction. The flavors of the elixirs are built to evoke the aromatics of the best expressions of cannabis - citrus, floral, piney, and woodsy. Aurora’s inspirations are the Goddess of the Dawn and the Northern Lights- both the visually stimulating natural phenomenon in the northern hemisphere and the first strain of highest quality marijuana introduced to our founder in her youth growing up in Brooklyn. 

Aurora's mission is to offer thoughtful and inspired products that highlight the flavor, aroma, and efficacy of whole plant ingredients to redefine a traditional cocktail occasion. 

Bios

Victoria Pustynsky
Founder & CEO

Victoria began her career as a sales & marketing professional in the wine & spirits industry, after a decade of working in restaurants and bars. Growing up amongst the Brooklyn diaspora in a Russian immigrant family led to deep rooted interest in international travel and exploring culture through food & drink. This passion for travel led her to study and later, work abroad throughout the former Soviet Union in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kiev, Ukraine.

Her fluency in the Russian language gave her access to the kitchens of Moscow, cognac distilleries in Armenia, a new wave of wineries in the Republic of Georgia, and a historic vodka distillery in the Altai Mountains of Siberia. 

When she finally reached a threshold with vodka, pickled vegetables and cured meats, she completed her MBA and went to work for a French wine & spirits importer marketing and selling luxury spirits, champagne, and a global wine portfolio. 

After several years leading a team in beverage sales to New York City restaurants, bars, hotels and nightclubs, she sought a lifestyle change that was more fitting for a new mother. She left NYC for Portland, Oregon to work with the state’s rapidly expanding wine industry. In 2016, wine and weed were both blossoming in Oregon and Victoria was inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit and emerging recreational cannabis industries. A long time recreational cannabis user and beverage enthusiast, she was motivated to combine the two while applying refined sensibilities and savvy to elevate the category. Aurora Elixirs was created for an inspired ‘aperitif’ experience that evokes balance and restoration without intoxication. 

Victoria is mother to a 9 year old boy with an enviable imagination, a pre-Covid yoga and fitness instructor on the weekends, and a lover of fancy clothes that she finds occasion to wear while cooking, baking and entertaining at home.

Victoria has an MBA from Cornell University, a BA in Russian Language & Literature from Reed College, she was a Fulbright Scholar in Ukraine and a Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Scholar. She held management positions at LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton and at Suntory USA before becoming a beverage industry consultant and then entrepreneur.
