THE REMEDY RADICALS
We could tell you that when Sarah and Emmet Condon started Remedy in their kitchen they had no idea what lay ahead. But we’d be lying. They had an inkling. They’d been making kombucha for a while. Their kids were into it. Their mates were hooked. Family members were dropping by more often for a taste.
So, they took a chance. Some might call it a massive risk. They had a young family. No jobs to fall back on. Some savings, a couple of credit cards. Entrepreneurial know-how, but no experience in the food and drinks world. What they did have was big aspirations and a simple belief. Oh and – perhaps most importantly – a tasty kombucha brew and a whole lotta guts.
They wanted to do something good. Shake things up. Make it right. They knew that healthy could also be tasty and easy. They believed we all deserve to know that too. While they’ve moved on from the kitchen bench, Remedy is still made the old-school way: in small batches, long-aged brewed for 30 days.
The result is the tastiest and healthiest kombucha going around: it contains no sugar, naturally, and is chock-full of all the right stuff: live cultures, organic acids and antioxidants.
With all the gut loving goodness going on in Australia, it was only natural that Emmet’s brother Dan and his Canadian wife, Lisa, decided to bring Remedy to the Great White North.
In early 2019 they did just that and now Canucks from the streets of Vieux-Montréal to the ski hills of the Rocky Mountains are downing Remedy’s drinks, no sugar naturally, raw, live cultured drinks are possible.
WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?
In a nutshell, kombucha (pron: kom-boo-cha) is fermented tea. The traditional method of making kombucha – which we follow at Remedy – involves a natural fermentation of sweet tea, wild healthy bacteria and yeasts.
The result is a tasty drink with sweet and sour flavours that contains healthy, living cultures (aka good bacteria) and organic acids.
People around the world have been making and enjoying kombucha for thousands of years. Ask around. We bet you’ll find you know someone who has been brewing their own booch forever!
I QUIT SUGAR
All Remedy drinks contain no sugar, naturally. We’ve even got an official tick of approval from I Quit Sugar (IQS) Recommends to prove it. The IQS Recommends program was created by Sarah Wilson, who has been one of our biggest and most long-standing supporters. Like Sarah we believe that you shouldn’t have to forgo taste for health and we’re proud to work together to help people kick the sweet stuff!
