Quench your thirst...

Sure, ginger beer is a must-have ingredient when it comes to rustling up Moscow Mules, but it’s so much more than that. Fizzy and tasty, it can be enjoyed as a non-alcoholic alternative enjoyed over ice or it makes for the perfect mixer when paired with rum or a splash of vodka. So it stands to reason that ginger beer has become the buzzword du jour in the drinks industry this year. But similar to how fashion has a tendency of repeating itself such is the way with drinks trends. In fact, the origins of ginger beer can be traced to the 19th century, when the beverage was popular all across the British Empire. Naturally fermented from a meeting of spices from the East and sugar cane from the Caribbean, ginger beer contained up to 11 per cent alcohol, before being reduced to two per cent by the 1855 excise tax laws.

While most commercial drinks nowadays don’t contain alcohol in their formula anymore, ginger beers are still used in a variety of cocktails to add a well-marked spicy kick and zest to any drink. The only caveat? Not all ginger beers are alike. Often treated as an afterthought, the world of ginger beers is more complex than you might think. But there is one brand of ginger beer you can trust: Poachers. 

Following a complete brand reimagining, premium mixed drink brand, Poachers has launched a world-first; a premium Ginger Beer that adds some real spice with Irish sourced chilli sourced and grown in the West of Ireland. The all-natural Ginger Beer is bottled in County Wexford.

Poachers Ginger Beer is low in sugar but packs a punch. It can be enjoyed as an Irish mule with premium vodka, poitín, or on its own as a refreshing non-alcohol alternative. Priced at €1.50 per 200ml bottle and €26 per case, Poachers Ginger Beer is available through select distributors, premium retail, and directly through the Poachers webshop.


And as it just so happens, we're delighted to announce that the eleventh prize in the 2020 FOOD&WINE advent calendar is a fabulous Poachers hamper stocked with everything you’ll need to enjoy a tipple this festive season.
