Kombucha 221 B.C.
Based in: Sarasota, FL
Distribution: AL, FL, GA, NC, SC, VA
Everything about these bottles and flavors just screams: Sunshine! Warmth! Ocean! The brand was started by a husband-and-wife team last year, and they currently brew 4 different flavors. The name, as some of you may have guessed, was inspired by the first recorded use of Kombucha in China in 221BC (hard to believe people have been boochin' this long!)
These two flavors were really sparkly and fun and more on the sweet side. Raspberry Hibiscus is a flavor we don't see enough in booch, and this one was really lovely; Lemon Lime Cayenne had mild heat and reminded us of a bubbly lemonade. It's cool to see a little booch history reflected in a brand. Ancient techniques, modern tastes, future flavors.
