You’re probably here because A) you heard about SAVG LYF and decided to learn more about our brand, or B) because you keep hearing about hard kombucha and decided to check out what it is all about.
So… what exactly is Hard Kombucha?
Kombucha is a fizzy, slightly sour drink made from sweetened black or green tea and fermented using a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast).
The fermentation process creates a trace of alcohol, but the alcohol by volume usually reaches no more than 0.5%, so most kombucha drinks are labeled non-alcoholic.
Hard kombucha, however, does have a much higher alcohol content than the traditional version of kombucha. It is fermented repeatedly and for longer than regular kombucha in order to increase alcohol levels. Typically, the alcohol content of this boozy brew is around 4-7%.
Is Hard Kombucha a healthier option to alcoholic beverages?
Like everything else in life – and especially when it comes to alcohol consumption -, moderation is key.
The health benefits of hard kombucha are still a topic of debate among health experts. On one hand, kombucha is known for its potential probiotic and antioxidant benefits, which may offer some health benefits. In SAVG LYF’s case, we use natural ingredients, which can be healthier than the artificial flavors and sweeteners used in many alcoholic beverages.
Whether or not hard kombucha is healthy depends on a variety of factors, including the brand, ingredients, and how much you consume.
SAVG LYF prides itself on being savagely real, refusing to use fake stuff on its drinks. In fact, SAVG LYF’s Hard Kombucha is made out of high-grade primarily natural and sustainable ingredients.
Here’s a list of ingredients you won’t find on your SAVG LYF Hard Kombucha:
