Kombucha – fermented tea that boosts the body’s immune system and maintains a healthy gastrointestinal tract with an array of beneficial acids. In it’s simplest form, kombucha is a blend of tea, water, sugar and a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). These ingredients are left to ferment in a warm environment for around 2 weeks, leaving you with a delicious and healthy soft drink. Low in sugar, kombucha naturally contains beneficial acids and antioxidants which can help support a healthy gut.
JARR is a Kombucha brewery based in Hackney Wick, East London founded by old friends Adam, Jess, Tom and Neil. After visiting Adam at his home in Los Angeles in 2015 and realising that they all shared a passion for Kombucha, the group of friends set out to create a drink that challenged the norm and offers an alternative to artificially produced, sugary soft drinks. In Autumn of 2015, they opened the first Kombucha taproom in Europe offering their 3 flavours: Original, Ginger and Passion Fruit on draft and in a cocktail. In April of 2016, they launched their first bottled range into Harrods and have been honing their technique and spreading the word about Kombucha ever since.
