Mother Kombucha Launches Kombucha-Infused Sparkling Water

Last updated on June 14th, 2024 at 10:35 am

St. Petersburg, Florida-based Mother Kombucha has launched Agua Bucha kombucha-infused sparkling water.

Agua Bucha is a sparkling water enhanced with the naturally occurring B vitamins and organic acids found in kombucha. Available in three certified organic flavors: key lime, Meyer lemon and grapefruit, each 12-ounce can contains four calories and one gram of sugar. The company says a proprietary process ensures that Agua Bucha is shelf stable without pasteurization and that all nutrition is derived naturally from the kombucha itself.

“Agua Bucha evolved from customer feedback over the last six years. Mother Kombucha has always been a category leader in low sugar and calories but we saw an opportunity for further innovation” said Tonya Donati, founder and managing partner.  “We spent two years developing our process and held it to the same high standards as our core kombucha line. Before going to market it had to be delicious, fairly and cleanly sourced and priced right. Agua Bucha continues our mission of making kombucha delicious and accessible to more people and we are thrilled to bring kombucha benefits to the water aisle.”

Agua Bucha is currently available at local independent retailers and direct to consumers on the Mother Kombucha website. Agua Bucha will launch in select Florida Publix Super Markets in June. Agua Bucha utilizes the sales and marketing services of the Ramsey, New Jersey-based brand management company Cascadia Managing Brands

Mother Kombucha brews is a WBENC certified women-owned business. It offers eight craft-brewed bottled flavors and 10 draft flavors, all of which are certified organic, vegan and kosher. Mother Kombucha is currently available in over 1,500 locations across Florida, the Southeast and New York.

“Agua Bucha evolved as a response to feedback from our customers over the last 6 years. While Mother Kombucha has always been a category leader in low sugar and calories, we saw an opportunity for further innovation” said Donati.  “We spent two years developing our process and held it to the same high standards as our core kombucha line. Before going to market it had to be delicious, innovative, fairly and cleanly sourced and priced right. We are so excited to bring kombucha benefits to the water aisle and see it as continuing our mission of making kombucha delicious and accessible to more people.”
