The natural ginger root used in our traditionally hot ginger beer is grown in West Africa and blended with Sicilian lemon juice and English rhubarb juice. 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.
Ginger Root Extract
The ginger plant (“Zingiber officinale”) originated from the rainforest of South East Asia and is now cultivated in most tropical regions. The ginger we use is the Tafin-Giwa variety that is grown in West Africa and has a spicy, aromatic flavour with citrus notes.
Lemon - Femminello Variety
Femminello lemons can be traced back to Roman times as evidenced by wall paintings and mosaics found in Pompeii and Herculaneum (Naples). Making up over 75% of Sicily’s lemon crop, Femminello lemons can be harvested year-long because each sub variety blossoms & matures during different seasons. Typically Femminello Comune lemons are medium sized, oval shaped and have a distinctive sourness.
Rhubarb - Timperley Early
Timperley Early Rhubarb is one of the most prolific varieties grown in Northern England. It matures in February at the start of the season and is characterised by its thin tender stems.
Carbonated natural spring water, sugar, 2.6% ginger root extract, pure Sicilian lemon juice and pure English rhubarb juice. (not from concentrate)
