Founded by Beverage Entrepreneur Bill Moses, Flying Embers Expands California Presence

Flying Embers, adaptogenic organic hard kombucha, launches its fermented alcohol (4.5% ABV) beverage line in partnership with Reyes Beverage Group, one of the nation’s leading beer distributors. The brand joins the Reyes Beverage Group portfolio including Allied Beverages, Harbor Distributing, Gate City and Crest Beverages and was founded by Bill Moses, proven beverage entrepreneur, co-founder and former CEO of Kevita sparkling probiotics, which sold to PepsiCo in December of 2016. Flying Embers is now available with its innovative live brews: Ancient Berry, Lemon Orchard, and Ginger & Oak.

The Organic Hard Kombucha features live probiotic cultures, botanical adaptogens, and functional wellness benefits. Each brew is vegan, gluten-free and certified organic. The functional brew flavors include:

  • Ginger & Oak, a delightfully complex and tart brew with warming ginger-turmeric for an earthy mouthfeel with some added heat.
  • Lemon Orchard, a refreshing, calming blend of citrus, lavender, and mint.
  • Ancient Berry, with a perfectly balanced sweetness featuring elderberry, pomegranate and goji fruits, with the dry tannin nuance of a PNW wine.

Served locally throughout Southern California, the brews are now available statewide in 22 oz bottles, 16 oz cans, and consumer-friendly kegs at mainstream and naturals grocery — including Whole Foods, Safeway, Erewhon, Berkeley Bowl, Bristol Farms, and Mothers Market.

“Flying Embers is the culmination of my passion and knowledge of twenty plus years of fermentation and creating better-for-you beverages,” said Flying Embers Founder Bill Moses. “I could not be more excited to bring forth a new and functional way to experience kombucha — and it is extremely validating to do so with one of the nation’s most respected distributors, Reyes Beverage Group.”

“We are thrilled for Flying Embers to join our portfolio of brands,” said Tom Reyes, President of Reyes Beverage Group. “Their unique craftsmanship and commitment to organic, premium products offer a new experience for kombucha and alcohol drinkers in the Southern California market. Our sales and distribution service will allow Flying Embers to grow its range of availability across its existing and future product portfolio.”
