Feverish About Fever-Tree’s New Ginger Beer

That’s what I am about this most gingery new bubbly beverage.

It’s made by Fever-Tree, the British maker of premium mixers that are used in libations at renowned El Bulli in Spain and the Fat Duck in the United Kingdom.

The company’s philosophy is simple: Why use sub-par mixers with premium spirits?

So Fever-Tree set out to create artisan ones using all natural ingredients.

Joining its line of Tonic Water, Bitter Lemon, Ginger Ale, Lemonade, and Soda Water is the new Ginger Beer.

You know you’re holding the real deal when you see the cloudy liquid in the bottle with bits of golden ginger floating at the bottom. Fever-Tree’s Ginger Beer is apparently made with two types of ginger — fresh, citrusy green ginger from Ecuador and hot, earthy Nigerian ginger.

It’s got a whopper of a ginger taste, too — just sweet enough with a purity of flavor, and a warm, refreshing, throaty burn.

It’s supposed to be perfect in a classic Dark & Stormy or Moscow Mule. But I love it all on its own, all the better to appreciate the fine ginger taste.

A four-pack is about $5. Each 200ml bottle has 44 calories.
