Dusty had discovered Kombucha during his travels as a chef. But once settled in The Netherlands, he couldn’t find any kombucha to his liking. Eager to create a perfectly balanced flavour, he set out on a year-long mission to understand the complexity of brewing kombucha.
During that time, while consulting on some kitchen work, the owner of the cafe asked him where he got his Kombucha. “I make it at home”, he replied. “Can I get 10 liters next week?”, the owner asked. This is where it started. Brewing the best possible kombucha he could, from home.
Not long after that while visiting family in South Africa, Dusty and his wife ordered a ginger shot at a cafe. Looking for a way to cut down on coffee, Dusty’s wife figured that a shot like this would be a great way to kick start her day. But once back in the Netherlands, they were disappointed by the poor quality of the available products and their high prices.
Once again, Dusty started experimenting. He hand extracted organic lemons, fresh Peruvian ginger and turmeric root, which he blended with agave to create his own shot. It didn't take long before a trainer at the gym tasted some. “Dude! Can I buy a bottle?”, he asked. The BAIN Ginger Lemon Shot
was born and became a part of many athletes’ routines.
Dusty still starts every day with a his shot. “I am glad that I am able to share things that are special to me with others”, tells Dusty.
