Red Bull, an energy drink, was born in the early '80s after an encounter between Dietrich Masteschitz, a toothpaste salesman from Austria, and Chaleo Yoovidhya, a Thai businessman. On tasting Krating Daeng, the local energy drink manufactured by Yoovidhya's company, Masteschitz went into partnership with Yoovidhya and spent the next few years perfecting the brew to launch it internationally.
