What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is fermented tea, made from 4 simple ingredients, tea, sugar, water and a scoby! A scoby is a Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. Our kombucha is alive, raw, unpasteurised, unfiltered, naturally fizzy, low in sugar, caffeine and calories. We also use filtered water from Royal Deeside, Fairtrade sugar and ethically sourced teas. Our Kombucha is vegan and gluten free.
The fermentation process
Fermentation is where the activity of friendly bacteria, yeast and enzymes (aka probiotics) eat the sugar in the sweet tea and turn it into yummy, slightly fizzy kombucha.
Ace Kombucha uses primary and secondary fermentation to achieve a naturally sparkling fermented tea. We don't use forced carbonation so our fizz is all natural, keeping it as natural as we can. We ferment our Kombucha using the small batch method, using 7 litre glass vessels to prevent plastic and metal leaching.
