  • Dandelion and Burdock – “Infusions of dandelion leaves and burdock root create the unmistakable taste and aroma of this definitive classic.”
  • Cherry Tree Cola – “Introducing the world’s first botanically brewed cherry cola”
  • Sparkling Lime & Jasmine – “Initial refreshing bitterness on the tongue is quickly balanced by the botanical sweetness of Hyssop, Lime Flower and Juniper Berries.”

They’re all gluten-free and vegan and completely lovely.  “Botanical brewing is a simple process involving herbs and plant roots. Thomas Fentiman’s original recipe involved milling ginger roots before tumbling them into copper steam jacketed pans and leaving them to bubble and simmer releasing all their flavour. The finest herbs, natural flavourings, sugar, brewer’s yeast and fresh spring water were then added to the liquid which was transferred into wooden vats where it was left to ferment.”

They certainly are an interesting looking drink before you’ve even opened the bottle.  There’s an instruction on some of the flavours to “upend before pouring” – there’s sediment at the bottom where the natural ingredients have settled, like home brew wine and beer!  There’s an “ooh!” to be had with your first gulp…
