Hi. We are Andy, Heike and Bonnie the dog. We live in Newburgh in Fife, Scotland where we brew and bottle amazing kombucha. We sell our booch at farmer’s markets in Leith, Perth and Bowhouse, at select drinkeries and now online too.
We began life as filmmakers. Back in 2013 we made a hit film called THE MOO MAN. It was about an amazing farmer trying to do the right thing, treat his cows well and sell their wonderful milk raw. It changed our lives.
Farmer Steve Hook was a trailblazer. Through making that film we learnt all about the importance of beneficial bacteria in our food, why it’s good to keep it raw and the miracle of fermentation. Researching a follow up film, we then discovered the revolution going on in the understanding of our microbiome and how the foods we all need are disappearing. We met groundbreaking microbiologists, fantastic artisan food producers and great farmers from all around the world. We were blown away.
In fact we went fermental. At home we experimented with yoghurts, sour doughs, sauerkraut, kefir, kimchi and of course kombucha. And the kombucha just tasted oh so good, and it’s super good for our gut too.
Our gut told us to follow our heart and so here we now are, bringing a new Buddy into the world .
