Named after the founder’s maternal grandfather, The Julius is just like him—fun and full of flair. It’s made with delicious lush peach with notes of caramelized maple, and combined with smooth, full-bodied, oak-aged whiskey. It’s a wonderfully boozy, fun drink.
Delicious to drink on its own, as an after-dinner drink or just as a refreshing boozy drink. Pair your kombucha with other fermented or pickled foods, or with spicy dishes. Because this has fairly fruity flavors, it’s great with salads and sandwiches, too.
Thought to have originated in China, kombucha is a drink that has been consumed for hundreds of years. It’s fermented and lightly effervescent, and usually made with sweetened green or black tea. The tea is fermented using a “symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast” or SCOBY. The SCOBY forms a gelatinous, mushroom-like disc, known as a “mother.” The mother is also why kombucha is also sometimes called “mushroom tea.”
Kombucha is now known as a super drink, popular in health and wellness circles for its probiotic functions, which provide your gut with healthy bacteria, which, in turn, aids in digestion, reduces inflammation, and aids weight loss. It also has many antioxidants, as well as properties that improve cholesterol levels, and help reduce heart risk.
Because kombucha is a living drink, it technically does not expire, but the taste will alter. Cultur’d MNL kombucha has the dispatch date on their bottles, and are best drunk within 1 month from dispatch. Store it in the refrigerator, and keep it cold; it will last 6 months. If kept at room temperature, it will keep fermenting, and the flavor and alcohol will mature. Keeping it refrigerated is the best way to slow down the fermentation process.
