Love Kombucha was founded by Melanie in 2013. A fizzy drink addict who suffered terribly with IBS, she read about kombucha and wanted to try some. However, whilst there were hundreds of brands online, she couldn’t readily find any that were in the UK so decided to make her own. The natural effervescence of kombucha helped her kick the fizzy drink habit and her IBS all but disappeared. She began sharing her homemade kombucha with friends and family and things soon got a little out of hand. Now she is the proud owner of a microbrewery than can brew 10,000 litres of kombucha every month and she even had to get a forklift truck to help cope with the demand for larger orders.
Whilst things have stepped up a notch (or two) rest assured the brewing processes are just the same, everything is still brewed by hand and our kombucha remains organic, unpasteurized and low in sugar – just how it should be.
Whilst kombucha may be relatively new to you, it has, in fact been around for more than 2000 years and probably closer to 5000. There are many stories that claim to explain the heritage of kombucha, some of which are confused and others downright unlikely.
