Loon Kombucha is uniquely pure. Founded in Canadian cottage country, our kombucha is cold brewed in alkaline water for a pure and refreshing taste - while teeming with beneficial gut bacteria. Need a moment of calm? Loon revives and refreshes like an escape to the cottage.
The Loon reminds us that we are far from crowded cities, from hurried lifestyles polluted by incessant worry. We cherish our moments by the lake because they’re a chance to escape from the grind and restore our natural energy.
At Loon Kombucha, we brew to encapsulate this feeling in every bottle. Misty mornings by the lakeshore, hiking through the forest with friends, clear waters as you paddle, warm nights around a bonfire — every sip is designed to transport you to a place where you are recharged and energized.
Our living, breathing Loon Kombucha - full of gut-health goodness and cold-brewed for drinkability using pristine alkaline water. Its sole purpose is to soothe your body and mind like an escape to the lake.
This is the Spirit of the Loon.
At Loon Kombucha, we draw our inspiration from the iconic Canadian Loon. We care deeply about the environment and fight passionately for it. We are committed to making a yearly donation to Birds Canada and ask you to do the same! Contact them at www.birdscanada.org/loonkombucha.

Natural shorelines provide shelter for loon nests and increase their food sources. If you live somewhere with a shoreline, leave it be. Don’t pour concrete, don’t remove natural vegetation. Replant natural vegetation if you’ve noticed it has depleted. If you poured concrete, make plans with a conservationist to get rid of it and return the shoreline to its natural state. Mistakes can be undone. We can all ensure that no negative externalities happen on our watch.
Really want to zip around the lake on the motorboat? We need to reconsider the ways that we interact with the lake. Propellers on fast boats slice open turtles before they have a chance to dive. Fast boats create excessive waves that smash into shores and wash out loon nests, killing the young. Drive slow. Try kayaking or canoeing. We all need to interact peacefully with the lake to keep loons around.
We need to stay away from loons on the lake. It is so tempting to paddle towards them, to get a better view of that intricate feather pattern, those intoxicating red eyes. Resist the urge. Use binoculars instead. If the loon parents panic and separate from their young, they can’t protect them. A looming Osprey will take quick advantage. Loons are reproducing less and less and they need our help – and our space.
It's important to never leave trash by the lake. We’ve all seen pictures of plastic choking birds, but food and scraps left near the shore can attract predators which may increase nest predation. Most people clean up after themselves, but not everyone knows to remove organics too. When we leave the lake, it should look like we were never there. We can all be no-nonsense, zero waste advocates for loons.
