What is Buchita?
Buchita (boo-cheeta) is a kombucha-inspired functional beverage full of prebiotic and probiotic metabolites. It was designed for breweries, taprooms, and restaurants. Buchita is sold as a shelf-stable concentrate that can be diluted with water and carbonated to produce a finished beverage ready to be sold to consumers. Or, if you want to get really fancy, add Buchita to a seltzer fermentation to make an alcoholic kombucha-like beverage!
What is the difference between Buchita and kombucha?
It's no secret: kombucha has difficult quality control concerns that are often not addressed. High sugar, elevated alcohol above the legal limit, and contaminating microbes make putting kombucha on tap at your brewery, taproom, or restaurant risky. Buchita tastes like good kombucha and contains low sugar (9g per 12 fl. oz serving), no alcohol, and all of the benefits of a fermented beverage. Additionally, Buchita is shelf-stable and has a 12-month shelf-life.
Buchita is made to be a cost-effective option for your brewery, taproom, or restaurant for a non-alcoholic beverage you can make in-house or use to make an alcoholic kombucha-like beverage. It is sold in either 1-gallon or 5-gallon bottles of concentrate that need to be diluted with water or alcoholic seltzer and carbonated. You can expect to make 30-60% margin if you sell Buchita for $2-3/12 fl. oz serving.
