It seems we’ve been taking a lot of calls lately for Ginger Beer. Not any specific alcoholic versions, (we do have a few of those too) but for the non-alcoholic kind that is used to make up cocktails like the Moscow Mule or Dark ‘n Stormy.
At moment we carry 3 different brands of Ginger Beer:
-Gosling’s Ginger Beer (from http://www.goslingsrum.com)
“Top with our perfectly balanced ginger beer; the only ginger beer created strictly to make Dark ‘n Stormy cocktails.
We didn’t steer you wrong on the whole shorts thing. Trust us on this one, too. We spent over a year to achieve the ideal balance of sweetness and spiciness and matching it to the flavour profile of our award-winning Black Seal Rum.
Only our Black Seal Rum makes a Dark ‘n Stormy genuine. Only our Ginger Beer makes it perfect.
Also introducing our Gosling’s Diet Stormy Ginger Beer, a refreshing and thirst quenching drink made with the same recipe as Gosling’s Stormy Ginger Beer for a natural ginger beer flavour with the advantage of zero calories.”
We also stock the Gosling’s Diet Ginger Beer as well.
-Fever Tree Ginger Beer (from http://www.fever-tree.com)
“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. Perfect in a Dark & Stormy, Moscow Mule or simply as a soft drink on its own.
COLOUR: Cloudy with natural ginger sediment. Should be inverted before opening to allow the sediment to go back into solution.
AROMA: Instant smell of fresh, natural ginger.
FLAVOUR: A distinct, fresh ginger taste predominates. It is refreshing and clean tasting without being overly sweet. As the liquid passes through the palate the ginger will fill the whole mouth, leaving a warmth at the back of the throat.
TEXTURE: A smooth, silky texture created by the champagne bubbles and natural ingredients.”
And last but not least, Empire Ginger Beer.
