To In 1905 Thomas Fentiman, and iron puddler from Cleckheaton, was approached by a fellow tradesman for a loan. A deal was struck and some security was provided - in this case a recipe for botanically brewed ginger beer. The loan was never repaid, so Thomas became the owner of a unique and rather original recipe for success. Originally, Fetimans Botanically Brewed Beverages were delivered in stone jars called “Grey Hens” and fermentation continued through door-to-door delivery.
Fentiman's great-grandson, Eldon Robson, beautiful glass bottles have taken over the stone jars and pasturisation has given our natural sodas a longer life. Today, every Fentimans Beverage is still made in the time-honoured tradition by brewing and fermenting herbs and milled roots over seven days. (This compares to hours production time for typical soft drinks.) Under the watchful eyes of Thomas Fentiman’s faithful prize Alsatian, Fearless, who still adorns the labels, our trademark recipes contain the unfiltered goodness of their natural ingredients. So upending the bottle before enjoying is always in order for a fuller, more invigorating taste that is ‘once tasted, never forgotten’
Brew the finest all natural tonic, the Fentimans family sought to enhance the deliberate smoothness of our fermented organic (grain) base, with the delicate subtlety of Lemon Grass from the Cochin area of India and the distinctive sharpness of purified chinchona bark (the source of quinine) of the same continent.
