Our new seasonal flavour, Crabapple Ginger is now on tap at The Olive Tree in Deep River!
We freshly juiced both local crabapples and organic raw ginger to bring you this delightfully refreshing kombucha combo. Who knew juicing crabapples was so delicious!?
Rumour has it there's an end of Summer cold going around. Raw crabapple juice contains a high dose of Vitamin C and raw ginger is anti-inflammatory and contains loads of antioxidants. Kick that cold to the curb while making your belly (and taste buds) happy.
Welcome back Maple Rose Kombucha!
We're pleased to tell you that after a long wait, our Spring seasonal kombucha has returned. New and (nutritionally) improved, this batch of Maple Rose was made using local maple sap instead of water, local maple syrup (we boiled ourselves) instead of cane sugar (typically used in the fermentation process), and organic rose petals.
The taste is subtle, not very sweet, more like a fermented sap than a sugary maple syrup addition. Be prepared for a different tasting Maple Rose from last year's sweeter variety.
Using local maple sap and syrup provides additional benefits to the kombucha given that maple syrup contains nutrients and minerals like zinc and manganese, antioxidants and phytochemicals. We suspect there is also beneficial bacteria present in the sap as this brew took almost a month to ferment, perhaps the sap bacteria was in competition with the kombucha bacteria. Lots of good stuff for your digestion!
We hope you enjoy a different take on our Maple Rose. Let us know what you think when you fill your 1L glass bottles at The Olive Tree!
Hey Honey! Check out our latest beverage, Jun.
What is Jun, you ask? Jun is a fermented tea very similar to kombucha but instead it uses honey as the nutrient rather than cane sugar. A traditional kombucha SCOBY (A.K.A. the culture) cannot use honey for a nutrient source as the naturally-occurring antibacterial properties of the honey will damage the beneficial bacteria of the kombucha culture. Jun SCOBYs have adapted over time to be able to use real honey as its food source, creating a sweet, distinct honey flavoured drink with the same probiotic and beneficial acids as kombucha.
In addition to the health advantages of kombucha, consuming jun will expose you to the numerous benefits of honey. Raw honey contains amino acids, enzymes and polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants that reduce free-radical damage and may help reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. Consuming honey native to your area will also boost your immune system, can alleviate symptoms of a cough and sore throat, and may help decrease seasonal allergies.
We use a premium raw Canadian honey that is 100% pure, natural, Kosher, and unpasteurized, providing you with the full benefits of a true honey. Our Nude Jun is unflavoured, keeping the brew traditional and simple to let the subtle sweetness of the honey shine through.
Try our Nude Jun on tap at the Olive Tree in Deep River with our environmentally-friendly 1L refill program.
It's March Break and we're a bit PB & Jealous seeing all the posts of friends on the beach down South. So we decided to bring the beach to you!

Hey all! We have an *** IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***
With our new bottles in circulation, we are starting to sell off our 1L flip-top bottles (to home brewers, for weddings/events etc). We will be selling them at a discount and therefore cannot guarantee that we aren't going to somehow buy back our old bottles through our refill program.
This means we will have to put a deadline in place for when we will no longer accept our flip-top bottles for exchange that do not have a label. We encourage you to either keep your flip-tops (some of you are attached, we've heard :) or bring them back for an exchange of our new bottles by MARCH 31.
Thanks for understanding!
EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it! We've changed our 1L bottles!
We've swapped out the flip-top bottles for these Boston Rounds and hope you'll be as happy with them as we are. We know you might have a wonderful, loving relationship with your Ikea flip-top, but let's be honest, it just wasn't going to last. The old bottles served us well and we loved the 'pop' when you opened them but we had to travel to get them, some seals weren't locking properly, the bottles were actually 1.1L and we weren't able to recoup the true cost of everything. Sooooooooo.. here we are, with an awesome new bottle that we've had our eye on for quite some time. A true 1 litre bottle, sleek and simple with a twist-off cap to keep a better seal. This also means you will pay less with a lower cost bottle. Really a big win all 'round. We hope you like them and would love to hear your opinion. You are welcome to keep your old bottles, but our Big Booch Refill Program is still in place.
Thanks for being awesome!
