Non-alcoholic fermentation at its finest

Inspired by techniques going back over millennia, blended with processes from fine wines and craft beers, at Real Kombucha we really know our fermentation. Our unique brewing process builds on the delicacy of our teas with complex floral and fruity flavours, astringency and subtle acidity more commonly seen in the most carefully crafted alcoholic brews.

A quest to discover the Truly Exquisite

Real Kombucha is brewed from hand-picked, loose-leaf fine teas carefully selected from small gardens around the world. Working closely with our very own tea expert, we have experimented with over 150 teas to develop our three individual brews. Focused on complexity of flavour, our drinks have an ability, unique amongst non-alcoholic drinks, to pair with a wide variety of different foods.

Real Kombucha is now served at many of the UK’s top restaurants, bars, hotels and pubs, including the following locations
