- About the Producer
Shrubbie is a gently sparkling soft drink made from all-natural ingredients. It combines the finest biologically fermented apple cider and furmint wine vinegar infused with sun ripened raspberries and aromatic rosehip. The vinegars were created in the heart of the volcanic Tokaj wine region and aged in oak barrels, providing you with a deep and layered flavour.
Perfect on its own as a refreshing cold beverage, serve as a gourmet drink alongside heartier dishes for a tantalising touch of acidic balance, or use as a base for fruity cocktails.
Free from additives, preservatives and added sugar, its sweetness comes from the natural sugars in the fruit. Fermented drinks have a wide range of health benefits, and due to the gentle production process, Shrubbie retains the mother from the vinegar. Rich in anti-oxidants, its regular consumption may help regulate blood sugar levels, improve digestion and reduce muscle cramps and fatigue.
Received 2* at the 2021 Great Taste Award.
Comments from the Great Taste judges:
"This dark amber sparkler has a nice, gentle vinegar nose with a dash of fruitiness. It has a gentle bubble in the mouth and the flavour has a beautiful balance of sultana-like fruit with a dash of dry white wine and a squeeze of lemon. It's a really nice well-rounded combination of flavours. It's a lovely journey for the palate, a complex and delicious drink."
