Health benefits + Refreshment

  • Pro-health herbal kombucha beverage
JOK Project - initiative that unites.
Finding loving homes
for homeless doggos.
As you now, we’re trying to make our planet a better place. So we did partner with the cool guys: FORUM Przestrzenie and dog shelters. We took pictures of ‘em and placed them on our kombucha bottles together with their doggo names and phone numbers.
Each bottle represents a different dog for adoption.
Apart from an awesome refreshment our kombucha provides, the project brings a moment for reflection and action. Because even if you can’t embrace Mr. DOGGO in your life - you can still act!
Grab your phone, take a picture of the label and send it your friends. Perhaps someone is looking for their soulmate:)
Tag the photo: @projectdzok #projectdzok #niekupujadoptuj #dontbuyadopt and show it to the world!
Let's join forces for the right cause.
For this cause we have partnered with the good guys: FORUM Przestrzenie - contemporary community center In Cracow/Poland with bars, restaurants, art gallery and many other vibrant things to brighten your day.
The name “Jok”/”Dzok” is a tribute to the dog, which has become a symbol of the dog's loyalty and love for man in the city of Cracow.

Right, but what kombucha is all about?
Kombucha is a brewed tea, fermented by the bacteria in the controlled environment, providing both great refreshment and pro-health benefits. The active ingredient for fermentation comes from SCOBY, a Japanese tea mushroom that is added for some time to pre-brewed tea.
We searched for the appropriately composed SCOBY for quite a long time . We created the drink from the best varieties of herbal teas and we have put a tremendous effort to ensure that VIGO fulfilled the high quality requirements. All without losing its refreshing and pro-health qualities during the production process.
We do not use regular sugar, sweeteners, nor any aspartamates. We ferment the tea with fruit extracts, and that’s it. VIGO is gluten-free and contains substances, which create a friendly environment for the development of probiotics, which are beneficial for your immune system and digestion.
Aesthetics
What’s on the inside is one side of the story. But we also wanted you to feel exctied while holding the VIGO bottle - your lifestyle accessory. We have made every effort so it would also have a tempting appearance.
Our kombucha is contained in a beautiful glass bottle, creating an ideal composition of aesthetic and flavour qualities.

BENEFITS OF VIGO

We do not intend to apply marketing jargon or colour reality. Briefly: our objective was to create something different. Something that is not only refreshing (cola) and stimulating (yerba), but something, which refreshes and is authentically healthy.

VIGO is a beverage prepared on the basis of the best SCOBY colony, herbal teas and natural crystal clear spring water. The quality of these is monitored on an ongoing basis throughout the production process, in order to retain all the flavour values of the drink, and primarily all the refreshment qualities.

Kombucha symbiotic colony (SCOBY) is a herbal mushroom originating from Asia. It has been known for over two thousand years and it has been used in natural medicine for centuries because of its antioxidant, cleansing and organism strengthening properties. Fermented kombucha tea - one may drink it in the morning - as a morning wake-up drink, during the day - as a dose of additional energy and also in the evening as a cleansing cocktail. And yes – VIGO may be mixed with % which makes your life even better.

How we make it?
Two types of kombucha for everyone
Light brews
Shorter fermentation for the most people.
1.Brewing the tea.
We brew the blends of black and white tea in proper proportions together with the fruit extracts. Then, we chill it.
2. Fermentation.
When the tea is cold enough we pour it to the jars, we add kombucha yeast also known as SCOBY (symbiotic colony). The tea together with the SCOBY is left out for around 48 hours.
3. Magic.
During this time fermentation process occurs making fancy things inside: acids, antioxidants, probiotics, vitamins and carbon dioxide. All of it create an unique and lightly vinegary taste. We halt the fermentation by removing SCOBY from the beverage. We add some nice superfoods, namely fruits.
4. Bottling
The drink is immediately poured into our sterile bottles. It should be done as quickly as possible, in order to preserve the most precious components and obviously the best taste.
5. The truth
We do perform the fermentation in pretty large silos (up to 10000 liters) in one of the most modern facilities in the world.
Long brews
Longer fermentation for the kombucha veterans.
1.Brewing the tea.
We brew the the black tea together with the unrefined organic bio cane sugar. Then, we chill it.
2. Fermentation.
When the tea is cold enough we pour it to the jars, we add kombucha yeast also known as SCOBY (symbiotic colony). The tea together with the SCOBY is left for up to 10 days.
3. Magic.
We split the process of fermentation into different stages containing one SCOBY strain. Each stage of fermentation is heat-treated in aseptic environment to exclude the pathogenic bacteria but not to reduce the presence of pro-biotic bacteria. Fermentation process makes fancy things inside: acids, antioxidants, probiotics, vitamins and carbon dioxide. Longer fermentation creates highly vinegary taste.
4. Superfoods.
The kombucha yeast is removed. We add some nice superfoods - fruits, vegetables and spices.
5. Bottling.
The drink is immediately poured into our sterile, pharmaceutical-grade bottles. It should be done as quickly as possible, in order to preserve the most precious components and obviously the best taste.
6. The truth.
We do perform the fermentation in pretty large silos (up to 10000 liters) in one of the most modern facilities in the world.

HOW WE MAKE VIGO?

We have prepared the drink especially for you, so that you may enjoy the exquisite taste every day.


WWe sought for the appropriately composed kombucha tea mushroom for several months.
We created drinks from the best varieties of Japanese mushrooms, herbal teas and
natural spring water.


We do not use sugar, sweeteners nor any aspartames, stevias or xylitols.
We use only natural sweeteners - fruit extracts that is what is the sweetest in fruits.


We wished that the scent would remain natural, organic and raw, as close as possible to the scent of real home-made kombucha.


PRODUCTION PROCESS:

1.
MIXING:
We heat the water, brew the tea.
Next we chill it, we add kombucha mushroom. Then we leave all of it in a warm place. Simple isn’t it?!
2.
FERMENTATION:
The drink is left for 7-10 days.
During this time the fermentation process occurs, carbon dioxide is also a product of this process, therefore VIGO is delicately effervescent. At the appropriate and long-awaited moment, we halt the fermentation by removing the mushroom culture from the beverage.

And here PLEASE NOTE :) we let you into a little secret! If we remove the mushroom culture too soon, we do not achieve the proper taste, whereas if we do it too late - it becomes vinegar. It may be used for culinary, cosmetic and hygienic purposes! However its taste will not be as good as the taste in VIGO.

Returning to the production of VIGO, when the fermentation process of kombucha is halted, the drink is immediately poured into our bottles. It should be done as quickly as possible, in order to preserve the most precious components and obviously the best taste.
3.
BOTTLING:
VIGO is poured into our bottles, which before use are
lightly-coloured and fired in a special oven, in which the temperature reaches 600 degrees C. They are therefore sterile and clean and at once may be used for bottling VIGO.

In order to remain true to our convictions, for the sake of our natural environment we do not apply labels. Everything that you must know about VIGO - it has been painted with ecological paints and the cartons in which we pack our drink have been made from re-cycled paper.

The drink thus prepared goes to the shelf and from there - directly to your hand.
