About JuneShine

 

What is JuneShine?
JuneShine is organic, sustainable, gluten-free, hard kombucha (6% ABV). We ferment our kombucha twice, once with our unique jun kombucha SCOBY (symbiotic culture of yeast and bacteria) to create a clean kombucha base, followed by a secondary fermentation with yeast and organic cane sugar. Flavored with organic juices and spices.  Read more about how we got started.

How is JuneShine kombucha different?
Great question. JuneShine is different in a few ways:

  • We use Jun Kombucha: It’s smoother and less harsh than the kombucha you’re probably used to drinking because it’s made with green tea and honey, instead of black tea and sugar.

  • We use organic, real ingredients: We don’t put any ingredients  you can’t pronounce in our kombucha. It’s completely organic, made with only green tea, honey, Jun kombucha, a touch of organic cane sugar, and flavored organic juices and spices for flavor. That’s it. No additives, no preservatives, no ‘natural’ flavors, no coloring, no rice syrup, no corn syrup.

  • Sustainability is built into our business model: We donate 1% of our annual revenue to sustainable non profit foundations certified by 1% For the Planet, and every day, we make choices that support the environment. We use sustainable packaging, we print on recycled materials, we upcycled an old brewery, and we treat the water we use before it goes back into the wastewater system. We’re not perfect, but we’re doing our best to make every choice one that’s better for our planet. We also support our ambassador community of environmentalists and adventurers who each have their own personal sustainability initiatives.

 

What flavors do you have?
We have five core flavors and a quarterly seasonal that we distribute outside of San Diego in cans and on draft. For more than 12 rotating flavors on tap, check out our tasting rooms in San Diego.

Distribution

 

Where can I buy JuneShine?
We’ve got a handy map here.

 

Do you sell cases? Kegs?
Email us at cheers@juneshine.co and we’ll get you set up with a keg if you’re in San Diego. We don't sell cases yet, but soon!

 

Do you ship to other states?
Alcohol regulation doesn’t allow us to do this quite yet. We’ve seen a few folks fill a cooler with JuneShine and check it home with them, though :)

 

How can I take JuneShine home with me?
If you live in CA, you can order online and have it shipped to you. We can’t ship outside of CA, so you have to buy it either in our tasting rooms or in a place that sells JuneShine.

 

I’m a restaurant/bar/liquor store/grocery store and want to sell JuneShine. Who do I contact about sourcing?
Yes! We've been waiting for you. Email cheers@juneshine.co.

 

 

 

Ingredients and Transparency

What’s in JuneShine?
All of our flavors have a base of green tea, honey, cane sugar, and Jun kombucha. Then we add organic juices and spices to create the flavors. No additives, no preservatives, no coloring, no pesticides, no GMOs, no corn syrup, no rice syrup.

 

Where can I find your nutrition facts?
Right here and they're also on our cans or 6pack cartons :)

 

Is your kombucha vegan?
It depends on how you define vegan–we use honey, so for some vegans, our product isn’t vegan-friendly. But most vegans love JuneShine!

 

Do you add sugars to your kombucha?
We use a combination of organic honey and organic cane sugar. Most of the sugar is taken up by the yeast and turned into alcohol, which is how we get our kombucha to 6% ABV. The residual sugar content in our core products ranges from 3 - 7 g in a 12 oz serving–very low for any beverage, let alone one with alcohol. 

 

What is the ABV %?
All of our flavors are 6% ABV.

 

Does the product have to be kept cold?
Yes, it must always be kept cool (around 40F)! Our products are unpasteurized on purpose to keep our live cultures alive. If left at room temperature or above for too long (usually more than a couple days), there is a potential for our kombucha to continue fermenting increasing the ABV and changing the flavor. Sometimes this is kind of cool because you get a different take on our flavors, but it can also cause undesired acidity and over-carbonation. So keep it refrigerate and enjoy it the way our brewers intend for it to taste! If a can feels inflated or swollen, it’s likely past its prime.

Other stuff you might want to know about

 

Will JuneShine keep me from being hungover?
We can’t make any promises here since it’s still alcohol, but most people do feel better the next day. JuneShine has waaaay less sugar (3-7 g per 12 oz serving) serving on average, depending on flavor) and none of the other bad stuff most alcoholic drinks contain: No additives, no preservatives, no coloring, no pesticides, no GMOs, no corn syrup, no rice syrup. But it’s still alcohol! We encourage everyone to drink mindfully.

 

How does your ambassador program work?
We partner with folks that authentically share our values of sustainability and transparency and want to help support JuneShine. If that’s you, drop us a line at cheers@juneshine.co. 

I want JuneShine at my company’s/brand’s event. How can I make that happen?
Thanks for thinking of us! We love being at events. Email us at grace@juneshine.co and we’ll make it happen.

HARD KOMBUCHA

JuneShine was started by a team of adventurers, artists, and creatives who share a passion and want to leave a positive impact on the environment. We fell in love with the refreshingly smooth taste of jun kombucha and have made it our mission to brew the highest-quality, healthiest jun kombucha there is.
