The East Imperial Ginger Beer brewing process that takes three days using the finest gingers from East Africa and East Asia to produce a naturally brewed ginger beer. There is less sugar in the brew as compared to other ginger beers and an incredible long lasting ginger spice makes it the perfect complement to spirits.
By brewing a blend of three gingers from Nigeria, Cochin and the Ivory Coast we have created an award winning ginger beer that has been highly acclaimed by gastronomes and critics alike. Not too sweet on the palate and with a deep long lasting ginger character.
By blending luscious botanical oils with spring water and quinine of the highest quality from the 'fever trees' from the eastern hill ranges of the Democratic Republic of Congo, we have created a delicious, award-winning tonic water. Designed to enhance the very best gins, vodkas and fortified wines, like vermouth, fino sherry and white port.
