Geoff Lamden and Joel Andrus are kombucha wizards. They care for scobys as if they were their children. When they announced the opening of Sacred Springs, their kombucha business, we were more than excited. They are right around the corner in Lowell, Michigan and will be going into distribution soon.
For those not familiar, kombucha is a fermented tea drink. What yeast is to beer, a scoby is to kombucha. Scoby stands for Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria Yeast and is responsible for digesting simple sugars to create tasty beverage with additional health benefits. Like homebrewing, the only thing that limits you regarding flavors is your own imagination. Fortunately, Geoff and Joel have pretty wild ones.
When people are in positive environments they are happier and work more effectively. Sacred Springs is taking this concept to another level. People, animals and even plants respond to positive stimulus. Geoff and Joel are infusing their scobys with positive feelings and good vibrations. Literally. They are blessing their scobys with singing bowls, sacred geometry and didgeridoo. It is an amazing sight to see. Sacred Springs is essentially a 5-star scoby resort, complete with a free breakfast buffet and an all-inclusive pass. Their combination of happy scobys, creative recipes and fresh ingredients makes for a remarkable drink.
They will be starting out with Kalmboocha as their green-tea-and-holy-basil-based flag ship product. Kalmboocha is a light, refreshing drink with crisp effervesces that is designed to cleanse organs of toxins and promote the relief of stress as it passes through the body. It is full of white wine and tropical fruit flavors has a subtle tart on the finish. Expect to see Sacred Springs on our shelves soon.
