10 ways to enjoy REAL Kombucha this Christmas

The merry time of Christmas is drawing on a-pace, and we’re encouraging all of our readers and customers to get their orders in ASAP. With so many people staying home for the Big Day this year, there are more delivery vans on the road, so we’re asking everyone to get their orders in by the 17th so that we can be sure to get your drinks to you in time. (We’re taking orders after then, of course, but we can’t guarantee they’ll arrive before the 25th.)

Should you need a little more inspiration, here’s a little list of 10 ways you can enjoy REAL Kombucha this Christmas. It’s a time of giving, and as you’ll see, we reckon that makes it the perfect time to share a REAL! 

1. Yule want to keep it simple…

We’re told time and again by those who drink REAL regularly that it’s the perfect alternative to a celebratory glass of bubbly. So, why mess with it? Chill it down, pour it into a flute or a classy wine glass, and enjoy it au naturel. As far as celebratory non-alcoholic drinks go, we believe there’s none finer. Order Royal Flush online here

2. Pair it with an artisanal cheese

Christmas is nothing without a decent cheese board, and we’ve spent a lot of time this year trying to find the best cheeses to make REAL zing. A fun task, but a tough decision. In the end we went with Sinodun Hill goats cheese. It pairs exquisitely with our Dry Dragon, the citrusy notes of the drink really cutting through the fermented cheese texture. Creamy heaven. Order Sinodun Hill from Neal’s Yard here.

3. Put together a REAL Christmas hamper

We’ve had a lot of people asking about non-alcoholic Christmas hampers this year. A bottle of REAL is a great gift for those cutting down on drinking, as well as anyone looking for a healthy, celebration drink with which to toast the festive season. As you’ll see in the article linked above, we’re got a few good ideas for other delicious items that will sit well alongside one our 750ml cork-and-cage bottles. Bon appetit.

4. Stay REAL fresh

Our Italian-style bottle stoppers make great stocking fillers for REAL fans, and they’re really useful additions to any modern kitchen. They keep 750ml bottles fresh for up to 3x longer than traditional bottle stoppers, and they look the part, too. You can order yours by clicking here.

5. Keep Christmas cooking interesting

We have tonnes of episodes on our REAL Podcast Page now. Why not pour yourself a glass of the Royal stuff and slap on your ear goggles? You’ll find those turkey-stuffing hours just fly by… and you may even learn something while you’re about it. You can find our podcast list on this page, on Spotify, on Apple Podcasts, on Buzzsprout, and most usual podcasting websites.

6. Buy a case and share a REAL with those around you

We get how hard it is to give a bottle away. Once you’ve had them delivered to your door, they’re yours, right? But Christmas is a time for giving, so why not order a case and gift a bottle to your neighbours? Heck… you can even get REAL on the milk float these days (see below), so why not leave a bottle out for your milk delivery person, too, just to show them the wonders that they’re dealing with!?

7. Get milk… and more

While we’re on the subject of milk floats, another quick reminder that you can now get a bottle of REAL delivered via Milk & More. If you’re after REAL Christmas ideas, why not ask Santa to bring you a Milk & More subscription this year, so that you can guarantee fresh deliveries into 2021 and beyond? Visit our Milk & More page by clicking here.

8. Pair with some delicious, fatty meats, or a wonderful garlicky tofu


There is delicious meat, and then there is Chiltern Charcuterie. Their hand-cured pork is made with port, garlic and pepper and hung for four weeks to develop a subtle and unique flavour. It is made in the Chiltern Hills, making it an ideal pairing for our Royal Flush. For those that don’t eat meat, we highly recommend a glass of Dry Dragon served with Taifun’s Wild Garlic Tofu Fillets. That citrusy wild garlic taste intertwines so wonderfully with our fermented green tea.

9. Get busy with a REAL cocktail

While we definitely prefer our drinks in their unadulterated, natural states, we’re not averse to trying a few things with the cocktail shaker. We’ve got an ever-growing selection of kombucha cocktail recipes on our website, suiting all occasions, often concocted in conjunction with our friends at some of the other great non-alc drinks companies now running in the UK. After something seasonal? A non-alcoholic Buck’s Fizz for Christmas morning, perhaps? Give them a go, and let us know how you got on. Tag your pics on our Instagram page.

10. Share the love

It has been a tough year of isolation for many, so our fingers are firmly crossed that 2021 will bring with it the chance to get together and revel in the company of friends once again. So, why not support the hospitality industry and look to more hopeful times by buying restaurant gift vouchers? Plan for a night out at somewhere like The Clove Club and you’ll be able to toast your reunion with a glass of REAL.

Here’s to a wonderful Christmas, however you plan to do it. All the very best from us at REAL Kombucha.
