GO! Kombucha is used as the base for a signature cocktail at London’s famous Langham Hotel.
‘Kombucha & Sloe’ – combining 125ml of GO! Kombucha China White with Hayman’s Sloe Gin, agave and citrus – is being served in the prestigious hotel’s Palm Court restaurant as part of the Hayman’s Gin Palace tasting menu every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night till the end of November. The cocktail has been inspired by one of the world’s most sought after “mixologists”, Alex Kratena (pictured), who created the recipe specifically around GO! Kombucha, which he regards as the best kombucha tea brand on the market.

Alex has worked in various establishments around the globe on different continents from New York to Tokyo, including cyber trance clubs, Michelin star restaurants and 5-star deluxe hotels. He also develops new cocktails, products and marketing strategies for some of the most recognized brands in the industry, winning many awards along the way as he strives to be constantly inventive trying out different methods and unusual flavours to enhance and hone his cocktail-making skills.
Alex is currently developing a new recipe around GO! Kombucha China White which he will present at next month’s Athens Bar Show, the annual exhibition for bartenders and cocktail aficionados. Eventually it is hoped the recipe will appear on the menu of The Langham’s multi-award-winning Artesian cocktail bar, which only recently was voted “The World’s Best Bar” by Drinks International Magazine.
