Our Best of British summer berries is made using raspberries, strawberries and blackcurrants gathered from farms around Britain, including the Pixley Noir variety, which is grown exclusively in Herefordshire. We always source our ingredients sustainably, by returning to the same farms and farming communities each year. This contributes to their long term sustainable income, and also ensures Folkington’s drinks have a unique consistency in both quality and taste.
Blackcurrant - Pixley Noir Variety
The Pixley Noir variety was originally identified in 2003 by Herefordshire farmer Edward Thompson who took the next 10 years to then propagate, plant and crop it. It has incredible colour intensity, unusually low acidity and a gentler flavour than most other blackcurrant varieties.
Water, pure fruit juices, not from concentrate (raspberry 6.5%, strawberry 5.8%, blackcurrant 3.3%), grape and apple syrup.
