Kombucha is getting wildly popular in the health and wellness world because of its incredible health benefits, and high-alcohol kombucha is no different. While there are many options these days for hard kombucha, we know that ours outshines the rest because we handcraft and brew it with an uncompromised commitment to quality and taste.
What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented drink made with bacteria and yeast mixed with tea and sugar. A SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) is used to turn the sugary mix into kombucha. The live culture actually consumes most of the sugar, leaving a low-calorie fizzy beverage with a tangy taste that is filled with incredible health benefits.

At Boochcraft, we source the highest quality organic teas and sugar and only use ingredients from sustainable sources. Our dedication to quality ensures the best bottle of Boochcraft, everytime.
Health Benefits of Kombucha
Kombucha is known as a rich source of probiotics, meaning it provides your gut with healthy bacteria that help with digestion, bloating, and all sorts of other gut-related issues. It is also filled with antioxidants that help fight free radicals that can damage your cells. Kombucha has strong antibacterial properties that fight off infection causing bacteria and Candida yeasts. This fizzy drink has endless benefits to our health, and our high-alcohol kombucha contains 100% organic fruit juices for the most nutritionally dense Booch possible.
In addition being rich in probiotics, our kombucha is a gluten free organic beverage sourced from local farms. For those looking to reduce their gluten intake, Boochcraft kombucha is a great alternative to beer.
The Boochcraft Process
We added an additional step to the kombucha brewing process in order to make our booch a fizzy alcoholic drink. To turn it into high-alcohol kombucha, we add more sugar and a new strain of yeast after the initial fermentation is complete. After that, the mixture is air locked in a closed fermentation tank to prevent aerobic bacteria from metabolizing the additional yeast into acids. We ferment the kombucha for an additional 10 to 14 days in order to get our alcohol level up to 7% ABV! Learn more about our process of making Boochcraft here.
The Boochcraft Difference
Each batch of our high-alcohol kombucha is rigorously tested through our quality control program throughout every step of the process. We make every effort possible to conserve resources and limit waste. We compost our juice and tea scraps and use only certified organic and non-gmo ingredients for all of our flavors, so you never have to worry about consuming pesticides and other chemicals.
We choose ingredients that have health benefits and taste delicious together, not just trendy flavors to provide you the healthiest alcohol drink possible. Every Boochcraft flavor is crafted from seasonally available sources and we get our produce from local California farms whenever possible. We are so sure that you’ll love our product as much as we do, which is why we offer all customers a satisfaction guarantee.
Our process isn’t simple, but our ingredients are. We have an uncompromised commitment to quality and we are on a mission to inspire people to live an exceptional life.
