In 2017 we launched Clever Kombucha with health and wellbeing at the forefront of what we do. From our traditional top floor flat in Pollokshields then to a small converted office space turned kombucha brewery in the Glasgow Collective in the heart of Glasgow's east end. After a short three months and securing distribution we realised we needed to scale up our production so we moved into a commercial kitchen/cafe in Dalmarnock that we transformed into our kombucha brewery.
Where We Are Now
You will now find Clever Kombucha stocked in over 200 stockists throughout the UK ranging from coffee shops, cafes, health food shops, hotels, bars and restaurants. We currently have four core flavours in bottles, Original, Lime Sea Salt, Ginger and Lemon Lavender. We only use carefully considered, organic ingredients with an abundance of beneficial, healthful properties.
We make Clever Kombucha in custom made oak barrels instead of large stainless steel fermenters. Although labour intensive our oak barrels create a kombucha tea with a depth of flavour that is impossible to replicate using industry standard methods.
We are confident that our products are making a positive impact in a world full of unhealthy, sugary and mass produced drinks.
Alan & Kelsey Moore are the founders of Clever Kombucha. Canadian born Kelsey has made Glasgow her home. Her passion for all things wellness lead to her desire to create a healthy product that people could enjoy and benefit from. Alan is the backbone of the company. He has a knowledge for business and important number crunching. He is also there to lend a hand with the production side of things. Fraser is the newest member to the team and has been appointed head brewer. His background in distilling and creative energy are the perfect fit for the duo.

Why Are We Crowdfunding
We are moving into a bigger brewery in 2020 to allow us to be able to keep up with the growing demand for our products. We will be transforming a railway arch into our production space. Our new home is situated south of the River Clyde, in the Gorbals.
We want to offer our drinks with benefits on tap to everyone and we need your help to create a bigger and better onsite taproom. The taproom will have exclusive flavours on tap that can be sampled and taken away in refillable bottles.
The space will also be utilized as an events space where we will host a series of fermentation focused, plant based, foodie events called Culture Club. Culture Club will take place quarterly over one weekend per season. We will be collaborating with creative chefs, brewers, bartenders and drinks brands. You can read more about our plans for Culture Club by clicking here. The space will also host regular workshops on making kombucha.
