I placed an order for these babies to be delivered, and I could not be more grateful. These are the perfect, light and refreshing companion to a social distancing day in.
The sampler 24 pack was the best delight of the day while quarantined. Every flavor is great, and I'm stoked to have it on subscription so I'll always have a supply on hand. The California delivery service is top notch! Thank you Juneshine
I had never had this brand before so I wasn't sure which one to order so I got the variety pack. I was pleasantly surprised by all flavors, my favorite being the one with mint! But I like having the variety to switch it up. I will be ordering another pack soon.
This is my new FAVORITE adult beverage. Delicious and the perfect amount of alcohol without all the calories.
Delivered right to my door, and all the flavors are delicious, not too sweet. I have told my friends all about it, and will likely order again. Even bought it as a gift for a friend.
I've been a huge fan of Juneshine for a while now. The delivery service has been fast, friendly, and very appreciated during this time.
Juneshine is my favorite hard booch. Love all the flavors but blood orange mint is my go to. Thank you for delivering!!!
I'm a JuneShine enthusiast, but this flavor in particular is amazing - perfect blend of flavor. Not to mention the incredible at home delivery and excellent price. Seeing my sweet delivery person's face was a highlight of my day!
Juneshine is my favorite drink that can be enjoyed anytime of day truly! The blood orange mint is refreshing, fruity, and bubbly. The next day delivery was the best and was super easy to set up. Thanks Juneshine! Can’t wait for my next shipment!
I was so excited to see two of the newer flavors available online. I ordered, received it and was trying out the new Matcha in under two hours! Great flavor and I will be ordering more as soon as it becomes available.
Love this as a boozy alternative to beer. It doesn't give you that crashing effect. Only thing is it's not great for week nights when you're trying to go to bed on the earlier side, either the tea or sugar kept me up. Great day time drink for the beach though :D
Delicious kombucha and great delivery!
So easy to order, and came quickly! JuneShine turns this rainy quarantine into a refreshing relaxing vacation at home. Going through my 24 pack quickly... and ordering more soon! Thanks JuneShine!
I’ve been loving my JuneShine! Mix of great flavors and not too sweet like other brands I’ve tried. Particularly like the activated charcoal one!
The case arrived to my house chilled! Great communication and what I was most impressed by was how easy it was to complete the purchase from the Instagram ad I clicked on. Seamless with Apple Pay! Bravo to the whole brand!
I used to think nothing was better than the craft beer craze, I sampled, brewed, brewery hopped on the regular. Juneshine puts that lifestyle to shame. Next step us adding Noras purple potion to the sampler!
By far the BEST hard kombucha out there. I look forward to it all day long and love virtually "cheersing" the girls with our Juneshine. I love supporting June Shine during this time and can't wait to come visit when this is all over. Thank you for delivering!!!
I absolutely LOVE Juneshine. It is all I crave for that 5’o clock feelin’. It’s natural, low in natural sugar (big for me) and tastes so good! It seriously is all I want at any given time of the day. To top it off, the company itself is one that helps preserve mama earth & helps spread love and knowledge.
