Unique, sparkling raw water kefir drinks from PiQi, now available nationwide, make a tasty, low-sugar, gut-friendly and sophisticated alternative to sugary soft drinks

In-line with the growing consumer demand* for gut-healthy and functional drinks, PiQi has created a range of delicious beverages, made using water kefir, a fermented, living ingredient famed for its powerful probiotic punch and immune-boosting benefits. 

Available in four delicious, sparkling and dairy-free flavour combinations, as well as 250ml and, soon to launch, 750ml bottle variants, each PiQi drink comes packed with billions of live cultures and is bursting with naturally occurring antioxidants, vitamins and amino acids that ensure every sip is super-healthy and beautifully stylish. 

Thanks to the fermented nature of water kefir, each 250ml bottle of PiQi contains up to 30 billion live cultures, which studies show have recognized probiotic qualities and can help support healthy gut microbiota, which plays an important role in digestion, weight management, and the immune system. 

PiQi’s founder Aksana Fitzpatrick says: “Digestive problems are a common occurrence. It is estimated that nearly 86% of all British adults suffer from some form of gastrointestinal problem. Much of this is attributed to stress and the types of foods we eat which are highly processed. 

We now know that a healthy gut contributes to a stronger immune system, so we created the PiQi drinks range to provide all the benefits of a fermented drink, without the dairy or caffeine – meeting the consumer demand for naturally delicious, plant-based probiotics”. 

As a sophisticated, naturally low-sugar, dairy-free and caffeine-free refreshment, PiQi drinks offer the perfect, gut-healthy alternative to artificially sweetened and flavoured soft drinks or alcohol** and also work well as a mixer for creating unique cocktails. 

The PiQi range is packed with enchanting organic ingredients and unique water kefir flavour combinations that include:

**Similar to kombucha and other fermented beverages, water kefir contains trace amounts of alcohol from natural fermentation. The amount is usually low, below 0.5% abv. However, raw unprocessed kefir will continue to ferment slowly in the fridge and can reach up to 1% ABV. Always store kefir in the fridge, below 5 degrees.

Those sensitive to alcohol are recommended to ask their doctor before consuming any fermented products.
