Craft Beer Guild Distributing of Rhode Island celebrated the state launch of Wild Tonic® Jun Kombucha at an April sales meeting at The Tree House Tavern in Warwick. The craft brew, which was among brands receiving a Beverage Industry Innovative Products of the Year accolade in 2018, is fermented with organic honey rather than sugar, and contains certified organic fruit, herbs and botanicals. Wild Tonic Jun Kombucha is offered in several flavors including two showcased at the launch: Blueberry Basil and Raspberry Goji Rose, made in non-alcoholic and 5.6% ABV versions and is a gluten-free product.
Michael Gerard, Partner, Tree House Tavern, created a special event cocktail menu for the event. Using Wild Tonic Jun Kombucha Blueberry Basil, cocktails included The Pineapple Kombucha, The Cucumber & Herb Cooler and The Orient Spice among several other showcased selections.
