HI, WE’RE RISE.

Since 2008, we’ve been producing kombucha for the forward-thinking consumer.

Our fanatical approach in the lab and our passion for working with nature allows us to create a certified organic kombucha that tastes great and is anything but basic. Our better-for-you beverages are as prescribed by nature, nurturing our bodies and delighting our taste buds.

Our devotion to crafting the best-tasting kombucha is captured in each and every flavour, which is meticulously quality controlled, tested and approved by our passionate team before hitting the shelves.

Better food for more, a better life for all ✌️

EVERYTHING
STARTS SOMEWHERE

Founded by two friends, David Côté and Mathieu Gallant, RISE was born under the name of Crudessence Kombucha. Three OG flavours, Hibiscus & Rose Hips, Fresh Ginger and Lemongrass, hit grocery stores’ shelves.

LOCAL
DARLINGS

The demand for the delicious flavours of RISE Kombucha allowed the company to grow and move from a small kitchen to a loft in the iconic Mile End of Montreal.
