Seasonal water kefir brew: ROSES



This product is unavailable


When was the last time you stopped to smell the roses? 

Brewed from petals hand-picked just before they fall to the ground at Acre of Roses in Trentham, just down the road from us, and now also- due to demand - from Crofters Fold -  these beautiful varieties of edible roses are grown biodynamically for the earth - but also for consumption. It would be a waste just to sit them in a vase, right?
Let the aroma transport you to a field of roses, to a warm summer day or to a moment where you let yourself pause.  Not only are roses a rich source of vitamin C - but when we infuse our kefir with them you are getting so much more than just a refreshing, subtle flavour. You are also drinking life! 
You will notice that the colour of this drink changes depending on the colour of the petals we are given - sometimes a rich and deep red, other times a more golden tinge.  We owe everything we have learnt about this industry to Sandy and Rob from Acre of Roses. A wonderful collaboration that has been brewing since the very start of our own journey.  x 

This Rose water kefir is brewed in small batches, from the SCOBY and immersed in  local spring water, fed organic raw Australian sugar, and a mix of rose petals. This slow alchemy of few ingredients, using no synthetic starters, results in an almost sugar-free, naturally carbonated drink. It’s perfect as a mixer and great as a pick-me-up at any time. As a result, our Water Kefir has been tested to have over 200 billion CFU's of living bacteria per 200mls. It is well known to have over 30 different strains of lactic acid bacteria and yeasts - similar to the break-down of Milk kefir.  We are really proud that we have kept this naturally carbonated - Pèt Nat -  and you can tell. 

Because our water kefir is naturally carbonated, it naturally contains trace amounts of alcohol - this one sits at around 1.5% but varies slightly, and is enough that you need to be over 18 to purchase this.
