As much as we love the indulgence of a glass of wine, gin and tonic and or cheeky beer / cocktail, sometimes you want all the flavour and refreshment of such beverages, just without booze.

The Fermentary is the culmination of a life-long passion of Sharon Flynn, author of Ferment for Good and Wild Drinks. Since 2014, the Fermentary has been primarily a manufacturer of award-winning sauerkraut and kimchi, supplying Australia’s best restaurants and shops.
Their Water Kefir is made SCOBY traditionally, fermented, kept raw and unpasteurised and fermented until the organic sugar is low enough to be tangy and sour, but enough left in there to turn to glucose. (Their kefir is fed the best Australian organic raw sugar and the crispest, spring water from Franklinford).
This is a drink that has been enjoyed in many countries for generations – the residual alcohol that causes the fizz – only a problem until recently. It sits on average at 1.5% depending on the flavour.
The Ovant story starts with Tom Streitberg at his family and spiritual home in Boodjidup Valley, Margaret River. Tom’s appreciation of the flavours and aromas of wine was born and grew among the world famous vineyards of Margaret River in Western Australia.
Over time, he came to embrace yoga, meditation and marathons and to question whether living well could be balanced with drinking well. He began a personal search for this balance. The pleasure and rituals of sharing a drink, balanced with a cleaner way to live.
Ovant have three unique distillations. Grace, is an homage to classic gin botanicals. Royal draws on the traditions of the world’s great dark spirits and finally Verve is a thoroughly modern aperitif
