Gut instinct was created in March 2018 by Chef Andrew and Scientist Laura in Skerries, Co. Dublin.
Together, they always wanted to start a food venture and, with Andrew being a chef with experience in ferment-focused restaurants like Noma in Copenhagen, Laura a scientist, and both keen on healthy living, Gut Instinct was a no brainer. Laura is the Chief Scientific Officer at Hexafly, a start-up disrupting the animal feed chain, and this experience has helped drive Gut Instinct from an idea to a reality.
They began fermenting a range of food and drinks in their home and quickly noticed the health benefits, as well as the interest from friends and family in their products. Launching with their best-known product, Kombucha is an alternative healthy lightly-fizzy drink, giving you all the gut-health benefits of a fermented product. Gut Instinct Kombucha is a delicious low calorie, low sugar, double-fermented and always unpasteurized Kombucha. They are also launching the first-to-market Coffee Kombucha in Ireland.
Gut Instinct in engaged with the Skerries community through markets and local events such as the Skerries Wellness Fest.
We are passionate about engaging with authentic Irish brands, and this is a large part of our ethos. We get all of our tea from the wonderful Wall & Keogh and our coffee from the gorgeous Cloud Picker.
