Remedy has revealed its hero product for the upcoming summer season with the launch of Tepache – based on a traditional fermented pineapple drink that originated in Mexico.
Remedy Tepache (pronounced te-par-chey) is a live cultured sparkling drink rooted in old school Mexican fermenting traditions pairing tangy pineapple with spicy cinnamon.
Remedy co-founders Sarah and Emmet developed Tepache while experimenting with the drink’s juicy whole fruit flavours and warm cinnamon undertones.
“There are so many interesting and exciting fermenting traditions from around the world that we’ve explored and Mexico produces some really delicious, refreshing, fruit based brews,” explains Emmet.
“We’ve taken the super tasty traditional recipe that’s made in the homes and sold on the streets of Mexico and put our own Remedy spin on it. Fermenting organic pineapple juice with our live Remedy culture and cinnamon, we brew out all the sugar in the process to create a fragrantly tropical drink that’s crisp and fresh with just a hint of subtle spice,” said Emmet.
“We’re always searching for new ways to get more people to make the switch from conventional sugary soft drinks. Looking to other countries for inspiration is just one way to create something new, different and tasty particularly for those people who love a bit of novelty and variety,” said Emmet.
“We think Remedy Tepache will be a real winner with foodies who like to mix it up and try the next big thing. The crisp, fresh flavor of Tepache lends itself really well to summer BBQs and entertaining.”
And like all Remedy drinks, Tepache contains no sugar, naturally with Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar tick of approval.
“People around the world have been reaping the benefits of live cultured drinks for thousands of years so it’s great to see a fermented Mexican pineapple soda making it to the shores of Australia for the first time,” Sarah Wilson said.
