About Chris +

Mammoth Lakes, California

Chris, a California native grew up skiing Mammoth Mountain, which was home to one of the first snowboard parks in the Nation. By virtue of his surroundings and peers he was heavily influenced by snowboarding and art, which seemed to shape him into one of the more stylish skiers out there. He quickly bailed on the contest scene and started chasing his true passion; deep snow and creativity. Now Chris is known for traveling the world and skiing in front of a camera. Jokingly tormented during the summer for his passion for surfing and love of climbing, he tries to stay close to home in California as much as possible where he is at peace in the mountains and in striking distance to the sea.

Why is sustainability and/or transparency important to you? How do you live these values?Sustainability is important to me because I want there to be a hospitable planet for future generations to not only live on, but to thrive. The earth provides so many spaces for us to recreate, heal and adventure and I feel the very least we can do in return is protect it. I try to live these values by minimizing my environmental footprint as much as I can, shopping sustainably and being an advocate for a greener future.

Why JuneShine as opposed to other alcohols/brands?

It's better for the planet and for my body. I love the ingredients, taste and dedication to the planet. It also doesn't hurt that the cans are so cute!

When do you feel most alive?

I feel the most alive when I get to stand up against something that I view as an injustice to people or the planet. I get so fired up about social and environmental justice and I've felt most alive at protests and when I get to put my activist hat on.

About Maryah +

Plant Doctor & Consultant


Why is sustainability and/or transparency important to you? How do you live these values?Sustainability in particular is something that drives my passion of teaching. I often feel as though sustainability is targeted towards common acts like recycling, eliminating waste and engaging others to take on these same practices. However, I see my role as a citizen and business owner to continue educating people on the ways in which sustainability is a subject that is primarily taught and upheld in non-Black spaces. My goal is to continue holding brands and people accountable for the work that they do in creating a sustainably focused world while also ensuring that persons of every race and economic class have access to the education necessary to carry this out. It is impossible to envision a sustainable world if only few are afforded the opportunity of emitting zero-waste, becoming vegan or using reusable bags. Until brands and companies are more transparent about their goal towards economic and racial environmentalism, sustainability can only be a starting point for us all. I look forward to continuing learning and teaching others about these values.

Why JuneShine as opposed to other alcohols/brands?

It’s pretty rare that something tastes as good as it is good for you. I was on the fence about Kombucha until I tasted Juneshine. It reinvented the idea of cracking open a can or bottle on a summer day, for me. I don’t have any hesitations about having a solo drink alone knowing that I deserve a cold spiked drink at the end of a long work day. JuneShine does a great job of making it known that they care about what you’re putting in your body as much as you do and I find that that’s very rare for a large company. P.S. The Blood Orange Mint is a game changer. It’s my favorite drink to bring to a bbq or party because I love the look on people’s faces when they try it for the first time!

When do you feel most alive?

I feel most alive when I’m spending uninterrupted time with my mother. Since we’re so close in age and on the same academic career path, I find that one of the things I’ve enjoyed most since coming into adulthood is sitting on our porch and talking about life with a cold drink. It might sound cheesy to have a drink with your mom but everything I do from my work with plants, grad school to starting my own business means nothing without my mom’s support. I feel most alive when we’re both relaxed and sharing a moment together because it puts my journey into perspective for me. It reminds me that I am where I am because of the sacrifices she made when she was my age. I began my career at 24 which is the same year that she had me. Thus, I’m constantly reminded of how much my work is a luxury and a direct reflection of her love for me.

Why is sustainability and/or transparency important to you? How do you live these values?

Sustainability is the future, the sooner we start realizing this the sooner we can help the earth. Nature gives so much and we don’t repay nearly as much as we should, I think it's important to practice sustainability acts on our everyday lives, even if in small gestures, looking out for the planet should be an obligation not an option.

Why JuneShine as opposed to other alcohols/brands?

Why is sustainability and/or transparency important to you?Sustainability makes me feel more connected to this planet we call home, while also helping me feel more responsible and proactive towards making a healthier place for me and future generations.

How do you live these values?

I live in a tiny house on wheels in the mountains outside of Portland, pulling water from a well and using under 30 gallons a week. I have a composting toilet here in the tiny casa that doesn’t flush, which saves 1.5 gallons every use. The smaller house is just a smaller footprint...less lights, less materials used, and living this small means rarely needing heating or AC. I compost here on the farm and turn those leftovers and scraps into rich soil for the garden where we pull all sorts of herbs and veggies.I also do my best to keep away from single use plastics-any plastic or cardboard that ends up here we always recycle at our local dump.'

Why JuneShine as opposed to other alcohols/brands?

Kombucha makes me feel good. I’ve always loved what this magic tea does to my gut and I brew it at home already. To have an alcoholic version of my favorite beverage is like a dream come true! Having a carbonated alcoholic drink and not have the heaviness and fatigue beer leaves me with is ALSO a dream come true.

When do you feel most alive?

I feel most alive when I’m in Oregon. With the people I love, sharing experiences in a place we all love. There’s so much to explore here while still feeling like you’re at home. Surfing with good friends until the sun goes down and hitting the trails on the bikes that next morning, ya can’t beat it.

My life is connected with the ocean, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Being a traveling surfer I see all corners of the globe. Even in the most remote places pollution is still a problem.

Why is sustainability and/or transparency important to you?Sustainability is important to me because I feel like if the world doesn’t wake up now there will be no clean oceans for future generations to enjoy.

About Austin +


Pacific Northwest

Growing up I traveled the country in a 37ft RV with my family for close to 10 years. With this kind of childhood, I grew a deep passion for travel and capturing images of the places that were special to me. After years and moving around, I now base out of Bend, OR but still constantly spend time behind a windshield of my truck always looking for the next adventure with my dog Chaco. Basing here in the Pacific Northwest I'm able to surf, snowboard, climb, backpack, mountain bike, and photograph the people closest to me sharing their same passions for the outdoors.

Why is sustainability and/or transparency important to you? How do you live these values? Sustainability/transparency is important to me in a company because it's what I work hard to better myself at everyday with not only my career but my life as well. I love surrounding myself with people and brands that value the same passions for bettering your work so we can all hold each other to higher standards and make the best art, product, and friendships possible. Sustainability is key for cultivating a lifestyle and a product to see it last the years as well as make things better than we found them. Transparency has always been a key factor in trust for me in people and businesses because if you're able to be transparent with a message you're better able to open it up to others for them to innovate and carry the torch.

Why JuneShine as opposed to other alcohols/brands?

I love JuneShine because of a passion to make the best product you can while enjoying the process along the way. When you find a company that not only cares about their product but how it impacts the consumer, it makes you want to go out of your way to support the ideals they have worked hard to cultivate. Plus, it's just pretty damn tasty and during/after some adventuring, it's one of my favorite ways to end the day.

When do you feel most alive?

I feel most alive when I'm out enjoying my favorite places with the people I love. I spend a lot of time with friends camping, doing outdoor activities, driving backroads, and sitting around campfires sharing stories. Equally though, I feel really alive when I'm alone in the outdoors with no service, no camera, just enjoying it by my self without the distraction of snapping photos. Sometimes I won't shoot anything and just keep that moment for myself, I feel like you should enjoy a place for yourself first and then pick up a camera to share it with others.

Above all, carry on the good word to do better by our planet.

Why JuneShine as opposed to other alcohols/brands?

I side more so with JuneShine because they’er healthier than most options of alcohol you’d find at the store, but also they’re absolutely delicious. With 6% alcohol content in each can I don’t think you could go wrong.

Why is sustainability and/or transparency important to you? How do you live these values?

Sustainability to me is simply not being wasteful and making use of the resources I already have. For me, reusing glass jars from food I’ve already bought rather than buying ziploc bags as well as bringing my own tote bags to the grocery store instead of purchasing paper or plastic bags for my groceries is a no brainer. Going thrifting or buying clothing from consignment stores over buying fast fashion is also a big one for me. I really appreciate when clothing labels are sustainable too because there is plenty of perfectly good & unused dead-stock fabric/textiles in the world that can be used but are being wasted away via the fast fashion trend. Thankfully, the world is shifting into a more eco-friendly and sustainable wave of thinking, and soon fast fashion will be dead.


Why JuneShine as opposed to other alcohols/brands?

-I’m not much of a big drinker, but when I drink JuneShine Hard Kombucha, I’m ingesting alcohol, but I’m also ingesting probiotic benefits that are literally cleaning my gut at the same time and if that’s not innovation I don’t know what is. JuneShine is light, easy to drink, and actually has nutritional value compared to other alcoholic drinks/seltzers.

When do you feel most alive?

I feel most alive when I’m in a situation where I find myself extra small in a world so big. Whether on top of a mountain or in the water-simply being active outdoors with my friends. I also feel this way when I’m traveling to a new place I've never been before. Traveling somewhere new and unfamiliar never ceases to remind me how small I am and how big the world really is.



About Troy +

Los Angeles, CA
Disrupting the ebb and flow of an often-stale breed of musical neophytes lands Troy Kurtz as the cut above the fray. Having never been married to a particular genre or niche, he has the freedom to rely on his consummate taste to expertly serenade whichever circumstance he finds himself in. He cut his teeth in Miami where he was on demand for the busy night club circuit. Troy was frequently called on as direct support for headliners like Danny Daze, Luciano, and Richie Hawtin. He was a resident at the renowned and now defunct venues Bardot, Grand Central, and Electric Pickle. He launched the legendary Slap & Tickle party at the Electric Pickle, which would later be awarded by the Miami New Times as the best party in the city, but it was time to reach new heights and a re location to Los Angeles was in order. Tackling the sprawl of LA was no challenge, and in a short while Troy had successfully played the city’s greatest clubs from Sound and Exchange, to the Downtown warehouse raves, to day time discos at rooftop pools. His appeal was growing, and international offers saw him play in London, Barcelona, Bali, Mexico,Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas. Wanting new challenges, he leaned on his esteemed knowledge of the musical zeitgeist which led him to consult and work for music industry titans Insomniac and Red Bull for the last few years, but Troy spent rediscovering his passion for music creation and record selecting, and was most recently called upon by Coachella to play their speak-easy Disco club inside the festival. In late 2019, Troy played the inaugural Secret Project festival in Los Angeles where he shared the decks with some of the most acclaimed artists in dance music - Ben Ufo, DJ Tennis, Gerd Janson, and Jayda G.Drawing on his love for italo-disco, house, techno and electro, his arsenal of new music is transcendent and multi-faceted. With ten years of experience, Troy’s unique sound is unparalleled.

When you back a brand you ultimately have to back the product, and I definitely love the taste and unique varieties JuneShine has to offer. Whether I’m playing at a party or having a beach day, they always go down nicely

When do you feel most alive?
