Passion Fruit Kombucha, JARR Kombucha

JARR is a microbrewery and Europe’s first kombucha taproom, based in Hackney Wick.  In its most basic form kombucha is raw, fermented tea. It’s low in sugar and rich in beneficial bacteria, vitamins, enzymes and acids. Essentially it’s a delicious dose of goodness for your gut and a healthier, tastier and more complex alternative to fruit juice, soda or alcohol. JARR were the first kombucha brand in the UK to offer kombucha on draft or in custom designed cocktails, and their ultimate goal is to make kombucha a part of the mainstream consciousness, paving the way for the future of fermented drinks.
