A small family run business specialising in organic, non-alcoholic alternatives to wine.
Boucha 'wine-style' Kombucha was born after founder, Bryony Dunseith, gave up drinking alcohol and was sorely disappointed with the offerings for non-drinkers. Giving up was the easy part. What I wasn't prepared for was how outcast it feels to be a non-drinker in an alchocentric world. Dining out has always been, and continues to be, one of my favourite past times, yet finding a comparable drink to have with my meal; one which felt sophisticated and could complement my food was virtually impossible. A selection of sugary juices, fizzy pops or plain old water was what I had to settle for which made me feel like a child - there had to be a better option.
I found it at the Club Soda Mindful Drinking Festival at Spitalfields Market in London during the summer of 2018. It was here that I tried my first sip of the beautiful elixir that is kombucha. I was immediately struck by this sparkling drink which had the perfect balance between tart acidity and zesty fruit. Not sweet, but so very pleasing to the palate....it was reminding me of something!
In that moment I knew what I wanted to do, and the seed of my Boucha baby began to grow.
Flavour was of utmost importance in the design process, so using the profiles of several dry and zesty wines, we found the perfect balance; creating an organic drink with lasting notes of green fruits and a dry, mouth-puckering finish. Presented in a wine style bottle with a label designed by my super talented, artist mother, my Boucha now looked the part, and I was ready to present it to the world.
Drinking culture is shifting and I’m so excited to be riding the wave. The future is bright and Bouchaful!
