Is There Alcohol in Kombucha?

Does Kombucha have alcohol?

Yes. Alcohol is a natural byproduct of fermentation and can be found in all fermented foods, like miso, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi. This alcohol is very beneficial, as it provides a natural form of food preservation—Nature’s self-defense against contamination and bacteria.

How Much Alcohol is in Kombucha?

CLASSIC is fully fermented for 45 days, so this line naturally develops 0.5 to 1% ABV (alcohol by volume) and is only available to those over 21.

HARD has 3% ABV (alcohol by volume). Through a unique dual fermentation, this line naturally develops a higher alcohol level, making it a better way to drink for those over 21.

If you have a sensitivity to alcohol for personal, religious, or dietetic reasons, we recommend abstaining from drinking Kombucha.
