The first ever WORLD KOMBUCHA AWARDS (WKA) contest will take place in Spain this Fall.

KBI launched the first ever awards for the global kombucha industry in 2022 with the Kombucha Kup.

Now, to further the cause of promoting kombucha worldwide, the first World Kombucha Awards competition is being launched by Jordi Canet, co-founder of Unica Beer, a craft beer brand based in Spain.

Like the Kombucha Kup, WKA is a competition opened to all international kombucha manufacturers and is organized by Kombucha Events, S.L. in collaboration with Kombucha Brewers International (KBI).

The WKA intend to elevate the kombucha category worldwide by recognizing the best kombuchas in a wide rage of categories. These awards are very clear orientated towards the final consumer and different from the Kombucha Kup, consumers with sensory experience have also been selected to be part of the panel of judges, together with qualified tasting experts and professionals from the sector.
