How adorable is this bottle of kombucha? It literally fits in the palm your hand! Portability + quality are the two hallmarks of Pure Luck—a very unique brand that originally hails from Bangkok. They recently relocated to Long Beach, and have been selling their booch at local markets.
What makes their brews special is how obsessively and meticulously they are crafted. They use spring water, the finest teas, brew in small batches, and use only organic ingredients. The result is a brew that rests comfortably between sweet and tart, with mild, pleasant flavors and a perfect fizz.
Founded by world-traveler and photographer Brett Casper in Brooklyn back in 2010, Pure Luck journeyed with him to Thailand, where his path intersected with fellow creative Tibb Phungtham. Together, they founded Bangkok's first kombucha brewery/tea bar/urban garden, which can best be described as a lush and historic space that inspires healthy living. Theirs is a partnership of taste and aesthetics: Tibb designs all of the labels; Brett crafts the flavors (he has a library of over 30 different ones at this point).
Last year, they relocated to Long Beach, and now have nearly a dozen of their ethereal flavors available in small markets around Los Angeles.
