A 5-star* Non-Alcoholic Cider Alternative from Real Kombucha

Non-drinkers commonly talk about how they miss the ‘bite’ you get from a non-alcoholic drink. They say that most non-alcoholic options don’t quite cut it. If you’re looking for something that works as that end-of-the-day drink – something that hits the notes and kicks you into evening mode, then try Smoke House by Real Kombucha, a great alternative to a scrumpy cider.

Smoke House is brewed from a delicate, smokey, black tea from the district of Yunnan in the high mountains of southern China. It is often grown by smaller, permaculture plantations where the growers climb the ancient, fully-grown trees to pick the finest leaves. This kombucha is rich and rounded; hints of apple and caramel give way to a delicate smokey top note. It’s best served in a short-stemmed Belgian beer glass, well chilled.

Rejoin the party today with Real Kombucha.

“Kombucha, like kefir, kimchi and other fermented thing beginning with ‘k’, has been declared a miracle product. Fermented tea, it is often sweetened and flavoured with fruit, but Real Kombucha’s Royal Flush has been left in its pure state. And it’s all the better for it. The slightly vinegary nose gives way to a lovely, deep flavour with a dry spicy undertone. A grown-up soft drink.”
Harry Wallop, writing for The Times

“If you’re sick of ordering Diet Cokes or soda waters in the pub when you’re not drinking, Real Kombucha is the alternative. Not only is it delicious but you’re actually doing something that will benefit your health rather than destroy it… if I had the option I’d drink them every day – they were that delicious and refreshing.”
Miranda Larbi, writing for Metro

“Kombucha might conjure up visions of hipsters in colourful leggings, but Real Kombucha has been brewed specifically as an alternative to alcohol. So good, you’ll find it on the menu at Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck.”
