Momo Kombucha partners with Orbit Beers to introduce alcohol-free blend

A south London based husband and wife led team, Momo Kombucha, have collaborated with their South London neighbours, Orbit Beers, to launch Hops Kombucha.

A limited edition that will launch in time for festive celebrations and Dry January, the collaboration is back for the third year, by popular demand.

Momo X Orbit Beers Hops Kombucha is made with Hallertau Blanc and Nelson Sauvin hops that provide tropical fruit and gooseberry flavours, rounded out with a tart kombucha hit for a kombucha is equal parts complex and refreshing.

Hops have a complex flavour base, mapping citrus tones and herbal, earthy notes, which make them an astonishing match for fully fermented tart kombucha like Momo’s.

Co-founder of Momo Kombucha, Josh Puddle, notes how there could be no better partner than Orbit Beers as he has admired the traditional method of making European beer with a modern twist for many years.

“This traditional approach with a flavour focussed modern spin felt like a natural fit for the way we brew,” Puddle adds. “This is our third limited edition special, and we are so grateful to have partnered with Orbit. Their beers can regularly be found in our brewery fridge (for when a kombucha can’t quite cut it) and Orbit supply some of our favourite pubs and restaurants in London. Thanks also to our head brewer Matt Canham for the creation of this delicious kombucha – it could be our best yet.”

Robert Middleton, founder of Orbit Beers adds: “We’ve admired MOMO’s traditional method of brewing kombucha down the road in South London for many years and love working with and sharing recipes and ideas with their team.

“Our first collaborative batch was brewed in January 2021. It was so well received, winning a Great Taste Award, that we decided to brew it for the third time, in time for Dry January 2024. One of the main reasons we fell in love with kombucha (apart from the delicious taste) is the benefits for our gut microbiome.”

For every bottle sold, Momo will contribute 10p to Save the Children’s Gaza appeal, supporting children affected by the crisis in the region.
