REAL Kombucha, the award-winning non-alcoholic drink brewed as an alternative to a sparkling wine, is available in supermarkets across the UK. From Scotland down to the Channel Islands, you can now scoop one of our beautiful bottles off the shelves and into your shopping cart whenever you’re doing your weekly shop.
Find out if our kombucha is stocked in a supermarket near you by scrolling down. In most supermarkets you’ll find us in the low/no section alongside other non-alcoholic drinks, rather than in the fridge or the wines aisle.
REAL Kombucha in Waitrose
REAL Kombucha’s 750ml Royal Flush bottles have been available in most of the larger Waitrose supermarkets since January, 2021, making it very easy to top up during your weekly shop. Take a look at the map above to find out your nearest store, and please let their customer service know if they appear to be out of stock. Royal Flush is also available to purchase from Waitrose Online.
REAL Kombucha at Milk & More
Our 750ml bottles of Royal Flush and Dry Dragon have been available to purchase via Milk & More since the end of 2020. Milk & More sit somewhere between the modern-day milk man and an online supermarket, and we were delighted when they told us they’d like to improve their non-alcoholic drinks offering by serving REAL Kombucha to their discerning customers.

If it’s made from tea, how can it be a non-alcoholic alternative to a sparkling wine?
At REAL, we know that making a great non-alcoholic wine alternative is all about the acidity, the nose, the mouth feel, and the ability to sit just right when pairing with food. We also know that it’s as much about the quality of the ingredients as it is the fermentation process.
We’ve realised that, in order to achieve those key elements, you don’t even have to use grapes in the first place.
Instead, we’re brewing fermented teas, and sommeliers, chefs and fans of non-alcoholic drinks are coming to us in droves. By fermenting handpicked Darjeeling first flush tea – known in India as “the Champagne of teas” – we have managed to draw out subtle, tantalising notes of rhubarb, white peach and blackcurrant.
Recognised as a great non-alcoholic sparkling wine alternative, our Royal Flush sells in over 2,000 locations across the UK, including over 50 Michelin-starred restaurants.
In July, 2020, we won Best No & Low Wine or Wine Alternative and Sommeliers’ Choice No & Low Award at the Imbibe No & Low Awards for our Royal Flush.
What are people saying about us?
As the winner of Best No & Low Wine or Wine Alternative and Sommeliers’ Choice No & Low Award, Imbibe No & Low Awards, 2020, we’ve had a few compliments…
“A quality drink. We serve it at Le Gavroche because it is unique in style and is very versatile, either with or without food. Royal Flush is clean, complex and has great length. It can both highlight the freshness of the dish and bring a little subtlety.” – Rémi Cousin, Head Sommelier, Le Gavroche
“The complexity created by the production method means this is the perfect substitute for wine alongside food. Royal Flush has depth and layers of flavour you would not get from other NA options.” – Max Venning, Co-Owner, Three Sheets
A great example of the complexity and sophistication of flavour that is achievable through highly crafted fermentation.” – Imbibe judge
