New fermentation crocks and kombucha brewing jars spark a home kitchen revolution

MONTREAL, June 6, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Fermentation is the next food revolution and there's no reason you shouldn't be a part of it. In this spirit, we are pleased to announce the North American launch of Mortier Pilon®, a brand of high-end fermentation glassware designed to make at-home fermentation and kombucha brewing more accessible than ever.


Mortier Pilon® strives to create accessible home fermentation products aimed at the health-conscious consumer. The name, which means mortar and pestle in French, was inspired by the spirit of tradition and focus on DIY that define the brand.

Fermented foods are cheap and delicious. They help us better absorb essential nutrients, restore balance to our intestinal flora and stimulate our immune system. To boot, they're incredibly easy to make at home! Mortier Pilon® draws inspiration from ancient traditions to create glassware and recipes that provide all these benefits, while helping you build culinary self-reliance and regain control of your pantry.

The new brand already boasts two exciting product lines. The Fermentation range includes DIY kits to make your own kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles and more at home, while the Kombucha range has everything you need to start brewing deliciously fizzy, probiotic-packed kombucha—a revolutionary kombucha brewing jar, plus stylish swing-top bottles to store the beverage in.

Mortier Pilon® hopes to spark nothing less than a home kitchen revolution, and as such, each product range had to be designed with the first-time user in mind. Kits come with a recipe booklet, and the fermentation crocks and kombucha brewing jars, which are a third of both the weight and price of traditional ones, were engineered to be ergonomic, versatile, and durable enough to be passed on to the next generation of picklers.  

The fermentation crocks start at $39, while the kombucha brewing jar retails at $59 (the swing-top bottles are $9 apiece). All are available online starting today at For wholesale orders, get in touch with our sales team at
