Orders that qualify for weight based shipping (calculated at checkout) are subject to manual intervention, where a manual scheduling of freight pickup/collection/shipping may have to be arranged. This happens particularly on heavy weight, irregular sized, or pallet based shipments.
If your order is over sized/heavy weight or requires a pallet – we will contact you to arrange shipping schedules, and our above timescales do not apply.

Every bottle and container of OMBucha® products is ﬁlled with uncompromisingly premium ingredients and like wine, does not actually expire. Kombucha will continue to mature and will eventually become Kombucha vinegar which has a multitude of uses of its own: use it in salad dressings, skin moisturiser, as a hair tonic, or as a marinade.
Some of our products are raw and alive, and require refrigeration. This makes shipping and transit time out of the fridge a complex process to manage. With regards to items such as Kombucha – a raw, living, fermented tea; by nature natural carbonation builds up inside the bottle. Please refrigerate your Kombucha immediately on receipt to avoid excessive carbonation leading to overspill or explosion which can cause harm to the user.
