Meet the Producer Left Field Kombucha

 

Why drink our kombucha?

Kombucha is a living, raw, unpasteurised drink. It is vegan and gluten free.

Kombucha is known to contain a host of healthy organic acids. It is a fermented, good for gut health, beverage. Our kombucha is naturally low in sugar and calories. Left Field Kombucha contains all of these good things but will also be an excellent dinner guest. Left Field Kombucha is made for flavour. It is brewed by a former beer brewer so it tastes like having a full drinks experience but without the hangover.

Jo and Geraint, the 'sensory' and the 'science' behind Left Field Kombucha

We make it so you can enjoy it with food. For example, our No.4 Darjeeling kombucha tea is our brunch booch going well with breakfast, and is also rather fine with curry.  Our kombucha can be enjoyed on a night out, and for a rejuvenating pick me up the next morning.
Who doesn’t love an everyday drink that tastes great and can support overall health at the same time?

Natural. Raw. Alive. Unfiltered. Full of healthy organic acids.  Low in sugar and calories. High in tea. And bubbles.

Our kombucha is all about the tea

Our approach is simple, clean and natural. Our kombucha gets its distinctive and unexpected taste by drawing on the aromatics of only the finest ethically-sourced teas.

We only use teas from Ethical Tea Partnership members

We don’t add fruits or spices (a tad left field for any soft drink or kombucha)

We infuse then expertly ferment the teas using a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria & yeast) to bring out their complex flavours

Our kombucha is independently handcrafted by us in our brewery in the Scottish Borders.
