Kombucha maker Remedy Drinks has created Remedy Tepache, a live cultured sparkling drink paired with pineapple and cinnamon. It follows traditional Mexican fermenting recipes to achieve its taste.

Remedy co-founders Sarah and Emmet Condon first discovered Tepache after experimenting fruity ferments in their own kitchen.

“There are so many interesting and exciting fermenting traditions from around the world that we’ve explored and Mexico produces some really delicious, refreshing, fruit based brews,” said Emmet.

“We’ve taken the super tasty traditional recipe that’s made in the homes and sold on the streets of Mexico and put our own Remedy spin on it.

“Fermenting organic pineapple juice with our live Remedy culture and cinnamon, we brew out all the sugar in the process to create a fragrantly tropical drink that’s crisp and fresh with just a hint of subtle spice.”

Remedy Tepache aims to boost overall health and wellbeing with its live cultures and has no sugars naturally.

The drink is available in four-packs of 250ml cans in Coles and online for RRP $10.00.
