Our fermentation process packs natural sparkle and billions of probiotic lactic acid bacteria cultures into every bottle. Brewed in small batches for maximum flavour, Brod® Kvas is always a completely natural, delicious, raw, living drink that is equally great on its own or with food.
“Good” bacteria are essential for the human body to function properly. Probiotic bacteria are “healthy” bacteria that are believed to support gut health and vital digestive functions, as well as beneficially influencing other bodily processes. Everyday life – stress, pollution, poor diet – can knock your gut bacteria off balance. Consuming probiotic foods like Brod kvas may help keep your gut functioning optimally.
We believe natural is always the best choice, which is why Brod Kvas is always:
· Naturally fermented · Organic and wild harvested ingredients · Vegan · Billions of live probiotic cultures per bottle · Naturally sparkling
· Nothing artificial · No sweeteners · No GMO · No caffeine (except Brod Brown) · No lactose · No preservatives · BPA free
Brod Kvas is a living product - keep it in the fridge.
Brod original rye
Brod Original Rye® is a refreshing modern take on 5,000 years of Russian tradition. We start with the rich flavours of Russian rye bread, add some sultanas for a little fruitiness, and naturally ferment it the way babushkas have done for centuries.
Brod Rosé® starts with sundried wild rosebuds, used to make a delicious and highly anti-inflammatory tea, set off with aromatic cardamom pods. The fermentation process packs natural sparkle and billions of probiotic lactic acid bacteria cultures into every bottle. The result is a light, highly refreshing beverage with an elegant and sophisticated flavour.
Rosebuds and cardamom have been used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for thousands of years to boost the immune system and support digestive health.

Brod Ruby® is a unique take on beetroot kvas that does not need any salt for fermentation – no need to limit yourself to shots, you can drink the whole bottle! We made our beetroot kvas even better by adding turmeric and ginger. Turmeric’s benefits are nearly too many to mention: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, along with possible cancer prevention and heart health promotion properties. Ginger is another incredibly beneficial plant shown to reduce inflammation and blood sugar and improve heart risk factors. Meanwhile, the fermentation process packs natural sparkle and billions of probiotic lactic acid bacteria cultures into every bottle.
Brod Ruby brings these superfoods together in a beautifully balanced, luscious red brew. This highly drinkable, deliciously refreshing, life-boosting probiotic beverage is our lowest sugar variety – under 2% – and is outstanding on its own or with food. .
The many health benefits of hemp have been in the news recently. We met local organic hemp growers Beefy Green at Christchurch Farmers Market and thought their sustainably farmed, Canterbury-grown hemp would make a perfect match for New Zealand’s own superfood – manuka. Fermentation put a natural sparkle and billions of probiotic lactic acid bacteria cultures into every bottle. The result is a low sugar, easy-drinking, gut-boosting and refreshing brew.
Brod Green® is living, naturally fermented kvas with billions of healthy bacteria per bottle. Studies show that hemp can boost digestive health, reduce stress and fortify your immune system. Manuka is famous for its anti-inflammatory properties and skin health benefits, while flavonoid-rich fennel seed has been shown to prevent indigestion and improve brain function.
Brod Brown® was the first of our uniquely flavoured kvasses. The rich flavour of Russian rye bread is combined with cold-brewed coffee (made with locally roasted organic fair-trade beans), cinnamon and cloves. The result is a surprisingly complex, smooth, deep, refreshing and invigorating brew that is equally great on its own or with food.
Winter or summer, Brod Lemon® is just the ticket. Bursting with citrusy flavour, it will remind you of the best old-fashioned lemonade you ever had, but with greater depth and complexity. The fermentation process packs natural sparkle and billions of probiotic lactic acid bacteria cultures into every bottle. Perfect for a warm evening around the barbecue and packed with live cultures and vitamins for when it gets cold.
