What is kombucha?

Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage, made by adding a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (scoby), to a solution of tea and sugar. During the course of the fermentation process, the cultures metabolise the sugar and tea components to produce a naturally carbonated beverage, with a slightly sweet-tart flavour, full of healthy components like B vitamins, organic acids, antioxidants, and with trace amounts of alcohol (<0.5%).

What is alcoholic kombucha?
Kombucha beverages intentionally brewed to produce higher amounts of alcohol (>0.5%) using a secondary fermentation process, are deemed alcoholic beverages for consumption by adults 18+ years of age, and are subject to the laws that regulate the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages.

How do you make HALO Alcoholic Kombucha (HALO)?
HALO Alcoholic Kombucha uses a proprietary two-stage fermentation process, using additional organic sugars and yeasts in a controlled secondary fermentation, to increase the level of residual alcohol to 4.0% abv. All sugars are consumed during the fermentation process, which is why HALO Alcoholic Kombucha is brewed better for you, with less than 0.1 gram of sugar and 2.5 carbs per can.

Why the name HALO?
It's pretty simple. A halo indicates a good person, and ours indicates a good brew. #goodpeopledrinkhalo.

How do I drink HALO?
HALO is a deliciously refreshing beverage - which you can drink straight from the can - but we think it's best served on ice, in a big glass, with a fresh lime wedge or whatever garnish you want. Glass. Ice. Pour. Garnish. Serve.

Does HALO contain caffeine?
HALO has a small amount of naturally-occurring caffeine, as it contains organic tea, however, this is much less than a standard cup of tea, per serve.

What’s in HALO?
HALO contains organic raw kombucha, organic teas, organic sugars, water, and natural flavours.

Is HALO organic?
Yes! HALO is organic and we only use natural flavours in all of our products.

Is HALO vegan and vegetarian?
Yes! No animal-derived products are used in the production of HALO.

Is HALO gluten-free?
ALS Global Labs (Sydney, Australia) test every HALO production run; no gluten is detectable in our brews.

Does HALO need to be refrigerated?
For the best taste experience, we recommend HALO be kept refrigerated at all times - or at a minimum, stored in a dry cool dark place.

Nutritional information:

  

Is HALO healthy?
HALO is an alcoholic beverage and, as such, needs to be consumed responsibly. In creating HALO, we simply wanted to give consumers premium refreshing drinking options, with lower abvs (4.0%), organic and natural ingredients, and very low levels of sugar, carbs, and calories, compared with other alcoholic beverage alternatives.

There is a small amount of sediment when I pour from the can - is this normal?
Yes, absolutely! It’s flavourless and a natural part of our production process. There are no artificial flavours or colours used in the production of HALO.

What’s the expiration / best before date?
Check the carton, 4 pack wrap, or bottom of the can for the best before date.
