Aqua Vodka: Vodka Made from Kombucha
So first let's dive into the world of Kombucha. Fermented with black tea and sugar, Kombucha contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and enzymes prized for its health promoting properties. So where do the nutrients come from? The sweetened tea is fermented with SCOBY (a symbiotic colony of yeast and bacteria) to become a nutrient dense beverage. The SCOBY consumes a majority of the sugar during fermentation which results in the low sugar product.
This nutrient dense drink isn't a miracle worker, however, it does help support your body's natural function by:
- Aid digestion
- Liver detoxification
- Improved pancreas function
- Increased energy
- May aid weight loss
- Improved mood
- Reducing Candida (yeast)
- Helps nutrient assimilation
But back to Vodka. Aqua ViTea brews kombucha in the heart of Vermont. They decided to utilize the alcohol that is made naturally during the fermentation process and separate it from the tea. With the assistance of Appalachian Gap distillery they created the uniquely smooth spirit that is Aqua Vodka. This spirit couples best with ice however, I'm sure there are many cocktails that will pair nicely with this vodka. Aqua vodka is certified organic by Vermont Organic Farmers.
