Good Buzz was founded in 2014 by Alex and Amber Campbell
and their 3 children Kaylie, Lauren, and Nathan.
It all started with Alex's grandmother, Amy, started making what she called ‘Manchurian Tea’ in Kaikohe, NZ.
After months of experimentation, Amber and Alex thought it was time to leave the software world behind and start Good Buzz, setting up a factory in Wainuiomata.
Nick Patel, owner of Cafe Vanilla in Thordon, Wellington promised he would be the first to stock our drinks and upon bottling and labeling our first batch we delivered.
DECEMBER 2014 -
Excited to introduce Wellingtonians to our amazing brew we did the farmers' market circuit doing up to 4 markets in a weekend.
Wendy and Richard Gatward join Good Buzz as partners.
We got shaken up by the big earthquake and lost a lot of brews and stock but that didn’t stop us!
The Boochery is moved to Tauranga and a 600 square meter facility set up.
Lion - Beer, Spirits & Wine NZ comes to Good Buzz looking for a kombucha to add to their portfolio and becomes a 25% shareholder.
The Kegging line is installed and kegs available to put on taps in bars, restaurants, and cafes.
Good Buzz has become extremely popular around New Zealand
and can be found in great cafes, health food shops, supermarkets,
gyms, even some bars! We strive to make consistently great tasting
kombucha without any shortcuts and for an affordable price.
We promise to keep it real - that’s the Kiwi way!
