Local Ferment Co

Started in 2019 by Akash Devaraju, Local Ferment Co. is a micro-brewery and kitchen that specialises in probiotic goods. He noticed a gap in the beverage space and wanted to add something fun. His experiments with local flavours and natural ingredients led to a selection of premium, non-alcoholic fermented beverages such as kombucha, jun, ginger beer, shrub soda, and more. To make these kits appealing, they craft their shrubs using fresh fruits, berries, foraged herbs and more. Their Zero Per Cent Cocktail Kits have other ferments and their cocktail mixers can be used with rum, gin, wine and beer. Their zero-proof drinks kit is perfect for teetotallers.
