A Curious Story
- Emma Davies

A CURIOUS STORY

After working as a brewer for various Dorset Microbreweries, Emma became an award- winning brewster known for her love of bold flavours and the use of interesting and foraged ingredients. 

Driven by a love of fermentation and a desire to maintain a healthier lifestyle, in 2018 she turned her knowledge of brewing towards creating kombucha for her family.

A country girl at heart I have lived in the South-West for many years and fully embrace the rural lifestyle this affords me. I have a passion for the natural world, and am fully invigorated by my stunning surroundings. 

A love of craft beer led me towards a career working in small award-winning breweries and gave me the opportunity to hone the skill of fermenting. I was lucky to work for people who allowed me the freedom to experiment with unusual flavour combinations and create wonders such as Goosegrass and Dandelion Ale and an Elderberry Stout. Myriad combinations to be discovered within the natural world inspired me.

In 2018 I began experimenting with different fermented drinks and discovered kombucha. My love and appreciation for its many benefits grew. I found by improving my gut health with kombucha my energy levels increased and my digestion improved.  The infinite flavour combinations to enhance and balance the sour tangy elements of the unfiltered kombucha energised me. I needed to share this!

My desire to have the flexibility to work for myself and sell this uniquely Curious product became my driving force.  After consultation with the local Environmental Health Officer I registered as a food business and began brewing larger quantities for sale locally.

From humble beginnings, brewing in the kitchen at home, she quickly outgrew her available space and moved into purpose-built premises. This not only had the benefit of more room but also gave Emma access to local spring water.

Since then she has spread her passion for kombucha, extolling its many virtues, by  attending various Markets and Food and Drink outlets across the South-West.

In 2021 she won another 3 Gold Taste of the West Awards for Cucumber, Lime & Mint Kombucha, Blackcurrant & Ginger Kombucha and Pineapple & Ginger Kombucha.
