Mortier Pilon was founded in 2015 by a team of young innovators in Montreal who strive to create smart, beautifully designed products that reflect current trends. One member of the team was already drinking bought kombucha and considering whether he could make his own at home. After finding that the equipment needed was bulky, unattractive, incredibly heavy and rather expensive, the team's idea to create easy-to-use, stylish, home fermentation products was an obvious one.
With a modern design inspired by the classic, ceramic, Korean fermentation jar, the Mortier Pilon Kombucha Jar is the first ever to be specifically designed for kombucha brewing and, being made from porous glass and BPA-free plastic, it is much less expensive and far easier to handle.
Scientific studies are increasingly supporting the positive influence of healthy intestinal flora on overall health; however, most store-bought, industrially made fermented foods are pasteurized, which destroys the microflora. With Mortier Pilon making it so easy to access the amazing health benefits of kombucha, we think everyone should start fermenting their own at home!
