Amber Garden gathers complex aromas and flavours from a perfect combination of two teas. Similar in style to white wine from Burgundy, this ACALA draws its qualities from the floral hemp tea Felina and green tea from the renowned Yunnan region in China.
Amber Garden stands out with its balanced complexity — the long-lasting aftertaste is the best match for varied dishes that our master of brewing enjoys most with a variety of dishes.
Starting with hazelnut and almond, the taste continues onto the gentleness of marigold and elderflower, and finishes with earthy notes.
This taste is rich and extravagant yet refreshing and balanced.
Cool to 5°C before serving. Serve chilled in a white wine glass.
Can be used for a non-alcoholic cocktail with fresh mint leaves and a wedge of lemon.
“It’s different. It’s premium. And, customers can enjoy a glass whenever — whether it’s their daughter's birthday, a celebration at work, midday, or a date with their significant other. ACALA complements their precious moments.”
“ACALA is a favourite. We serve it as an alcohol-free alternative to champagne and wine at events and receptions. The festive experience remains the same for our guests, and the exquisite taste really adds to our custom menus.”
“Everyone knows what to expect when they come here. They expect excellence. And we demand only the finest of ingredients to be used in our assortment, which ACALA over-delivers. Our guests, young and aged favour it.”
“Fresh ingredients and pure, naked flavours are of utmost importance. At the same time, we want to provide a unique dining experience that ushers our guests beyond their comfort zone. ACALA is our choice for that.”
ACALA is based on the finest teas, picked exclusively for our sparkling Kombuchas at renowned tea-growing regions around the globe. One of them can be found high up in the Nepalese mountains, some in Yunnan, and others are picked especially for us in the Lithuanian wilderness. Once the tea leaves are picked, they’re dried at low temperatures on a linen cloth, preserving and signifying the teas’ aromas.
We source our spring water from our country’s renowned healing water springs in Druskininkai. For years, its waters have been regarded as the Elixir of Youth. Now, they’re a part of ACALA.
Once everything arrives at our brewery, we brew our teas in different temperatures that allow us to retain complex aromas and flavours. Once the teas cool down, we add SCOBY and a few spoons of previously matured ACALA.
This mix further matures up to 3 months, depending on the qualities we’re looking to extract, finishing our first fermentation process. Following, our teas proceed to the second fermentation process, which further includes ingredients such as 100% natural juices, made from fruits picked at their peak and pressed specifically for ACALA. The second fermentation is slow, and we let it go on until ACALA reaches the peak of aromas and flavours. Finally, it matures in a cool and dark cellar. This is the process used in making high-quality sparkling wines, and, of course, ACALA sparkling teas.
ACALA is brewed locally in Kaunas, Lithuania. We’re inspired by ancient traditions, which are natural and planet-friendly and use modern technologies to sophisticate the brewing process.
Because of our fermentation processes, good bacteria and yeast’s symbiotic culture is broken down into glucose and some alcohol molecules. This may produce up to 0.9% alcohol per 100ml, which is classed as alcohol-free. There’s about the same amount of alcohol in orange juice, kefir, or kvass as there is in ACALA.
