Started in Atlanta in 2013, Golda Kombucha is Georgia’s first and finest sparkling kombucha tea—a probiotic drink containing vitamins and live and active cultures to aid digestion, boost the immune system, and energize the body. All of Golda’s kombucha flavors feature a fresh Southern-grown fruit and herb pairing, and are free from artificial flavors, coloring, and preservatives.
Golda Kombucha is more than a business venture to Melanie—it’s part of her family’s history. Melanie’s kombucha recipe and the culture used for fermentation were passed down from her grandmother Golda, the business’ namesake. A living testament to wellness, Golda is 95-years-old and resides in the Blue Ridge Mountains. She has been brewing her unique kombucha for over 40 years and has perfected the recipe passed down to Melanie.
After experimenting with profiles like lavender-lemonade and peach-ginger in her home kitchen in 2013, Melanie was ready to bring her product to market. She debuted Golda Kombucha to the public at local farmers markets and craft fairs around Georgia, soon finding that Atlantans couldn’t get enough of her time-tested family recipe.
Each healthy, refreshing, and smooth drink from Golda Kombucha is inspired by a local fruit and herb pairing and layered with a green and black tea blend. Core flavors include Strawberry-Mint, Lavender-Lemonade, and Peach-Ginger, with seasonal offerings based on availability of in-season produce that Golda Kombucha sources from local farmers.
Handcrafting her teas locally and in small batches, Melanie ferments and ages the raw and unfiltered kombucha in oak barrels, which imparts a smooth and earthy flavor. The barrel process also enhances the natural probiotic density of the drink.
To meet demand, Golda Kombucha recently doubled the size of their facility and has expanded into a brewery on the east side of Atlanta. The teas are available on tap, in ready-to-drink bottles, and in growlers at dozens of restaurants, bars, and grocers throughout the Southeast, including in over 70 Kroger supermarkets and in eight Whole Foods Markets.
