Our Story


It all started as we were wandering the aisles of our local grocery store. We noticed there was a sustainable, transparent option in nearly every consumer category–except alcohol. This led us to ask: why do we know so much about the food we eat, but so little about the alcohol we drink?

With no solid answers in sight, we grew frustrated by the lack of honest transparent alcohol brands catering to our healthy, active lifestyle. And so, we decided to start our own.

JuneShine was started by a team of adventurers, artists, and creatives who share a passion and want to leave a positive impact on the environment. We fell in love with the refreshingly smooth taste of jun kombucha and have made it our mission to brew the highest-quality, healthiest jun kombucha there is.​

Our initial brew of organic green tea, honey, and JuneShine's symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) produces an unbelievably smooth and delicate kombucha. And after a myriad of trials, tastings and test batches, we found the perfect recipe to elevate the alcohol content. We use only organic honey and organic cane sugar in our fermentation and the residual sugar in our final product comes from organic fruit.

Once complete, we add organic juices and spices to taste, creating unique and refreshingly smooth flavors without the junk found in other mass produced alcoholic beverages. No artificial coloring, GMOs, pesticides, or processed corn or rice syrup. This makes JuneShine less toxic for both your body and the environment.

Fast forward 3.5 years and we see sustainable organic disruptors in many alcohol categories. However, high ABV canned cocktails are one of the last to be disrupted and the fastest growing. The competition all take short cuts with transparency. They pack in 20-30g of added sugar and do not use real organic ingredients for flavoring. Neither are they sustainably produced. We saw our customers drinking these products and wanted to give them a better option.

We want to disrupt the high ABV cocktail space with a premium spirits based ready to drink cocktail offering with organic ingredients, no added sugar, transparency and sustainability. We can continue to tell the JuneShine story seamlessly and honestly communicate what we’ve seen over the last past few years and why we wanted to seize this opportunity.

So, here’s to honest alcohol - better for you and for a healthier planet!
