The Fermentery

Our state-of-the-art home on the beautiful Waddesdon Estate


Our Fermentery is the first of its kind, leading the way in non-alcoholic fermentation. We chose to build our home on the beautiful Waddesdon Estate, which is just a stone’s throw from our original facility at Hartley Farm, because of our shared passion for sustainable food & drink practices.

Alongside being where we produce our range of Naturally Fermented Sparkling Teas, here we invest hours in experimentation, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.


Immerse yourself in our world of fermentation, where we continuously push the boundaries of what's possible. 

Meet a member of the REAL team for a tour of The Fermentery, learn about our unique and innovative processes, and taste our range of delicious non-alcoholic Sparkling. You will learn how we combine the art of fermentation with science, to create our exceptional depth, flavour and complexity. 

Our tour & tastings last for approximately 1 hour.
