The Art of Kombucha
Real, Authentic, Hand Crafted
There’s no compromise for quality and we want to make sure our Kombucha is as good as it gets. We carefully craft each batch with the highest quality ingredients and delicately flavour each variety with fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices.
Zentient Culture are the specialists in Kombucha and fermented beverages on tap in Australia. You wont find any pre-bottled drinks from us on the supermarket shelves.
Zentient Culture was born and bred on the Central Coast and it's where our purpose-built micro-fermentary is located.
You can taste the difference
We're helping build a conscious community supporting local business rather than multi-national chains - so you’ll always know the ‘people behind the product’.
Our passion is to create and share empowering, health-promoting experiences within our local community. We don’t see our beverages as products, but as a fermented experience with lasting benefits.

Exclusively On Tap
We've made a conscious decision to only serve and store our Kombucha on-tap in premium, environmentally-friendly, stainless steel kegs rather than single-use disposable plastic kegs or bottles that can leach chemicals and ultimately end up in landfill. Once the kegs are empty we collect, clean, refill and repeat.
This means our customers can enjoy a unique experience of fresh Kombucha straight from the tap giving them the flexibility to refill their own cups or bottles. This approach supports our passion for sustainability through zero waste and plastic free efforts.
Love at first taste
Zentient Culture is a family business started by Amy and Roger in 2016. Our first Kombucha experience was love at first taste and we were excited to start making our own brew at home. Over time, we developed our winning recipe and started to share the fermented experience with friends and family.
If you visit a weekend market or event where Zentient Culture is being served, you’ll find either one or both of us behind the taps of the Kombucha bar and getting to know the Kombucha loving members of our local community.
We carefully craft each batch with the highest quality ingredients and delicately flavour each variety with fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices.We supply our Kombucha directly at Farmers Markets and through locally owned businesses. We will always be a local company committed to delivering exceptional, personalised service.
Frequently Asked Questions
Got some questions?
Our living SCOBYs thrive on our recipe of reverse osmosis filtered water, organic cane sugar, and organic tea leaves. All our flavours are made from fresh, organic ingredients cold pressed by us.
All Kombucha is made with sugar. We use organic, raw cane sugar at the start of fermentation as a nutrient and energy source for the living healthy cultures. We then source fresh, organic produce to flavour our different varieties; local is our number one choice. We cold-press the fruits, herbs and vegetables in-house for a perfectly balanced Kombucha. The addition of the cold-pressed produce naturally increases the total sugar content as displayed on our nutrition panel. Fresh, natural ingredients just as nature intended.
The water kefir culture naturally ferments the purified water they are given and in turn, leave living enzymes and probiotics. Most of the sugars are completely consumed by the cultures making is a healthy, low sugar alternative.
