Our kombucha should be kept refrigerated since it's unpasteurized. Bottles can be stored upright or lying down. It's normal for kombucha culture and fruit to settle at the bottom.
If you forgot to store it in the fridge for more than a few hours, unfortunately we don't recommend drinking it. Warm temperatures restart the fermentation process, which changes the flavour and alcohol content & can cause the pressure to build up. Please be careful when opening it to discard. We recommend chilling your bottle beforehand and carefully removing the cork. Be prepared for it to bubble over.
