Kombucha vinegar may not be a familiar product, but it is a versatile one. “We thought a lot about where these bottles would live,” says designer Felicity Jones, who worked with Yiyi Mendoza, co-founder of Yesfolk, a family run brewery in Troy, NY, on the bottle design for the brand’s Sencha Kombucha Vinegar. The kombucha, fermented and then aged in oak barrels, is made with whole leaves grown in Shizuoka, a central tea growing region in Japan. The result is a crisp, over-fermented tonic with hints of vanilla and grass that can be drunk (for pre- or post-prandial sipping, or as a cocktail ingredient) or drizzled (as a finishing vinegar atop, say, a green salad). “Simple, single-color design has always caught my eye when staring at the many bottles behind a bar and that was a big influence on my direction,” says Jones, who wanted the design to stand out “but also feel at home in people’s homes.” Jones and Mendoza found that bar shelf/kitchen counter balance this by paring back their original, illustration-heavy concept, and swapping in a “funky hand drawn product logotype” along with “a healthy dose of monochrome metallic ink.” Those details — the shine on the text, the glass stopper and hand dipped beeswax seal — evoke the friendly and accessible, but also, you know, “the good stuff,” vibe that the brewery is known for.
