L.A Brewery produces delicious non-alcoholic kombucha made from health boosting teas, fruits & botanicals. Having sold 1m+ bottles since launch, they are now looking to expand their Suffolk microbrewery and to invest in sales, innovation & marketing in the fast growing non-alcoholic drinks market.
Louise discovered kombucha 10 years ago & fell in love. This led to experimenting in the kitchen with fermentation using tea, seasonal flowers & fruits. 3 years on, Louise teamed up with food & drink partners William Kendall & Mark Palmer and launched L.A Brewery in 2017 to craft better-tasting non-alcoholic drinks.
Healthy replacements for alcohol are in demand, with 48% of adults under the age of 34 planning to take part in dry Jan 2021. 25% of drinkers consider themselves semi-regular consumers of low & no alcohol. Kombucha provides a craft-brewed sophisticated drink which rivals alcohol & soft drinks but also delivers health benefits.
Our microbrewery has already produced and sold 1m+ drinks and we've achieved listings with Amazon, Selfridges, Leon, Farmdrop, Wholefoods, Planet Organic, Ocado (March 2021) & 300+ independent stockists across the UK. Newly launched online shop saw a record month in Dry Jan 2021 (+171% orders v Dec '20). In the last 6 months, we've featured in Vogue, GQ, Tatler, Hello!, Elle, Glamour, Country & Town House as one of the best non-alc brands & female-led businesses. A feature on ITV’s Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh resulted in £1k+ online sales in 10mins.
We're raising £500k to expand our microbrewery, working to enable a production increase of 4x to meet future demand and expanding awareness & availability of the brand. Invest in L.A.
