Starting from Scratch
Live Beverages began in Austin, Texas as one man's mission to improve the health of his family by crafting a kombucha that tastes like soda. Trevor Ross first experimented with small batches, tweaking spices and flavors until he got each one just right. His kombucha went above and beyond industry standards of quality and probiotic content using only the purest ingredients - always USDA Organic, Non-GMO, 99.7% raw kombucha.
Trevor started Live Beverages in memory of his sister and in honor of his dad. He lost his sister, Courtney, to breast cancer. After she passed away, he funneled his grief into helping his family stay healthy.
He started by making lifestyle and nutrition changes. Having heard the benefits of kombucha, he decided to give it a try. After his first sip, he nearly spit it back in the bottle. "I got used to the taste and pretty soon, was hooked on kombucha as I saw my skin clear up, my energy increase, and my digestion improve." The rest of his family refused to touch it.
It was only a matter of time before he'd tried his hand at brewing kombucha. He experimented with all kinds of flavor profiles and let his officemates serve as test subjects. "It tastes like soda," somebody said appreciatively one day. Trevor's dad has been a self-proclaimed soda addict for years. He's also Trevor's role model, business mentor, and a huge source of inspiration for everything he does. "I'd wanted him to quit soda and try kombucha for a long time, but to no avail. Instead of taking away his soda, what if I could bring the flavor to my kombucha?"
He knew it wouldn't be easy and refined the spices and flavors until he had a kombucha that rivaled the most popular sodas on the shelf. Live Beverages was born. Give it a try. Trevor's dad did and has been soda-free since.
