Job Description

Real Kombucha are changing the way people drink.

Real is a light, tart, refreshingly carbonated, non-alcoholic brew made from exquisite fine teas from small tea gardens around the world. Brewed using fermentation techniques usually found in fine wines and the best craft beers, they have developed a brew that can compete with the best fermented beverages, but with less than 2% sugar, less than 50 calories per bottle and only a remnant of alcohol. Founded in 2017, Real Kombucha is now served in many of the best locations in London and around the UK. Listing restaurants and bars such as The Fat Duck (Heston Blumenthal), Tramshed (Mark Hix), Hai Cenato (Jason Atherton), Hakkasan (Alan Yau), Pied-a-Terre (David Moore), The Pig Hotels, Scout and many others amongst its fans we are providing a truly sophisticated alternative to alcohol on an evening out.
