At Fentimans we are truly passionate about the natural ingredients and flavours we use to make our drinks.
To achieve an unrivalled depth of flavour we only use the highest quality ingredients sourced from specialist suppliers.
Elderflower From England
Elderflower has been a staple of the English country kitchen for centuries. The delicate white flowers grow wild in the English hedgerow and come into bloom in June, signalling the arrival of summer. To capture the essence of an English summer, we hand pick wild elderflowers, which are transformed into a pale, verdant liquid. Fentimans Wild English Elderflower is naturally light with delicate floral flavours, delivering a clean and complex taste.
Ginger Root From China
Ginger root has been used for millennia as a herbal medicine and as a cooking ingredient in Asia. Two thousand years after the Romans first started to import ginger to Europe, Fentimans continue the tradition of importing the finest Chinese ginger root. To make Fentimans Ginger Beer, the ginger root is crushed before the intense and spicy flavour is extracted and botanically brewed. The result is a complex taste which is fiery and full of flavour.
Jasmine From Asia
Cultivated in the foothills of the Himalayas, jasmine blossom has long been used in Asian medicines and remedies. Its delicate white flowers reflect its subtlety sweet and fragrant aroma, giving our Sparkling Lime & Jasmine a distinctly sweet and sour botanical flavour that is quite unlike any other soft drink.
Quinine From Indonesia
Famously used by British colonists to protect them from contracting malaria, quinine harvested from the bark of the Chinchona Tree is the vital ingredient in the creation of tonic water. Extracting the purest quinine is essential in giving a premium tonic its distinctive dry and slightly bitter taste. The quinine used in our drinks, has a long association with the British making tonic water in their overseas empires.
Orange From the Mediterranean
Our specially sourced oranges are grown in the Mediterranean region and are renowned for possessing a tangy and intense citrus character. The temperate climate allows the oranges to slowly ripen, developing a vibrant and bold citrus dimension, that packs a flavoursome punch in our Mandarin & Seville Orange Jigger drink.
Rose Oil From the Kazanlak Valley, Bulgaria
It is the inclusion of rose oil, which gives our Rose Lemonade its distinct and delectable floral flavour. We source our rose oil from Kazanlak in Bulgaria, known locally as the Valley of the Roses and famed for producing the highest quality rose oil. Harvesting of the rose petals happens in a narrow window of time, occurring just once a year. The rose petals must be picked by hand at sunrise when they are at their most fragrant, with the oil extracted within hours of picking. The result is a delicate and distinctive rose flavour.
Pink Grapefruit From the United States
One of the largest members of the citrus fruit family, pink grapefruit is tangy whilst carrying a luminous sweetness. The sharp yet sweet notes create a delicious melody of flavours in our new Pink Grapefruit Tonic Water; the perfect recipe for an invigorating G&T like no other.
Limeflower From Eastern Europe
Aromatic limeflower blossoms from the lime trees release a burst of uplifting and fragrant notes. Floral whilst carrying a subtle citrus melody, limeflower is one of the key taste notes in our Botanical Tonic Water.
