What does “Halmi” mean?

Halmi is a nickname for halmoni, which means grandma in Korean. 

Who is Halmi’s founder?

Halmi was founded by Hannah Bae, a second generation Korean American. Born and raised in Queens, NY, Hannah grew up drinking her halmi’s traditional beverages to alleviate digestive issues and common ailments. By sharing a modern spin on these drinks, Hannah aims to present a different way of creative storytelling.

Are Halmi beverages healthy?

While we can’t compare with good ol’ H2O, our beverages are made with real ingredients that are known for their digestive and health properties.

Our Cinnamon, Ginger, Jujube, Persimmon flavor has 45 calories and 7g of sugar for a slight sweetness.

Do I need to refrigerate Halmi beverages?

No, our beverages are pasteurized and will be shelf-stable for 1 year in moderate conditions. We highly recommend you chill the beverages or pour them over ice for the best experience.

Is there alcohol in Halmi beverages?

No, all Halmi beverages are non-alcoholic.

How about CBD, THC, caffeine, prebiotics, probiotics or adaptogens?

No, our beverages do not contain any of the above. Although we appreciate these ingredients, we’re trying to keep our ingredient list as simple as possible.

Why is there malic acid in the Cinnamon, Ginger, Jujube, Persimmon beverage?

Since we don’t use preservatives, malic acid is used to control the pH level to ensure safe beverage consumption without the need for refrigeration. It also helps bring out some of the complex flavors of the ingredients.

We use L-malic acid, which is naturally derived from apples.

Are Halmi beverages vegan and gluten free?

Yes! All Halmi beverages are vegan and gluten free.
