meet golda

Georgia's first kombucha tea company has arrived: Golda. A fermented beverage derived from a family recipe. Kombucha is a probiotic drink known for aiding digestion and immune support, while energizing the body and boosting the mind. 

Golda Kombucha is local, healthy, and refreshing.

The recipe for Golda Kombucha tea comes from a vivacious 98 year-old named Golda. A living testament to wellness, Golda has been brewing and drinking her own kombucha for more than 40 years at her home in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Now her family recipe, unchanged through the generations, has been passed down to her granddaughter Melanie: the brewmaster behind Golda Kombucha. 

After experimenting with profiles like lavender-lemonade and peach-ginger in her home kitchen, Melanie was ready to bring her product to market. She debuted Golda Kombucha to the public in 2013 at local farmers markets and craft fairs around Georgia, finding that Atlantans couldn’t get enough of the time-tested family recipe.

As demand grew, Melanie doubled the size of Golda Kombucha’s facility and moved to a brewery on the east side of Atlanta. Today, the teas are available on tap, in ready-to-drink bottles, and in growlers at dozens of restaurants, bars, and grocers throughout the Southeast, including in over 100 Kroger supermarkets and in several Whole Foods Markets.

Melanie also serves as Secretary of the Board of Kombucha Brewers International. She regularly teaches classes where she shares her knowledge about the health benefits of kombucha and the process of brewing and fermentation.
