All About Kombucha
This Galway’s artisan adventure is the passion project of young entrepreneurs and locals Emmett Kerrigan and Keith Loftus. All About brews the freshly fermented sparkling tea from wholesome organic ingredients, which makes a refreshing drink that is the perfect healthy addition to any lifestyle. This adventure came about after the pair emigrated to Vancouver, having just recently earned business degrees at NUI Galway.
"We wanted to put some of the learned knowledge from college into practice, something university tends to fail to cover. We formed our very first company ‘Emerald Services BC,’ a landscape construction company, not long after. Whilst out on a lunch break one day after a tough mornings build, we stumbled upon Kombucha in a local health food store. We weren’t sure if we were dehydrated or just plain wrecked that day, but we weren’t performing our best. The bottles of booch we picked up just made us feel incredible, instantly. The booch brought us back to life, and the rest of the day felt like a breeze. We were immediately hooked. We had to have more. Returning to the Emerald Isle after two years of hard graft and eye catching adventures, we struggled to find a worthy successor to our newfound favourite brew, so we decided to create our own! Our original goal was to really just make enough batches for ourselves, but then our friends started putting in requests, and our families followed not long after... so, we decided it was maybe time to embark on our second business journey together. We drew from our experiences across the Atlantic and worked to define a clear direction as to what we wanted our booch and company to be. Now here we are brewing, bottling, selling and having fun. This is what we're All About."
