“ Manufacturer: Schweppes / Soft Drinks „
Up until recently I was aware of this brand and what this was though to the best of my knowledge hadn't ever tried it. The only reason I ended up with a bottle of it was because me and my mate got a bottle of rum and this came in a promotional pack with it.
I am a fan of ginger beer so was pleased to get this with our rum as a mixer of course which this is actually promoted as.
This drink comes in a 1L green and see through plastic bottle and it has a white twist on/off cap/lid to the top of it. On the front of the bottle we are clearly told what it is and then other information on the back of the bottle includes ingredients and a nutritional chart as well as an at a glance one, the size is stated and contact details for the manufacturer are given. Its a nice looking, simple bottle and informative enough too.
Well this golden liquid isn't fizzy as such and doesn't have much of an aroma to it. Its a rather flat drink really and like I said this is really pushed as a mixer drink. As for flavour well it is a dry drink really, slightly sharp and not very sweet. I was disappointed this didn't carry alot more flavour but as a mixer the flavour of it really didn't interfere with other liquids I added it to.
I didn't like this drink on its own though, I found it boring and it really does need to be served cold as at room temperature I personally found it foul. I would purchase this again as a mixer but not as a drink on its own for me, I prefer more flavoursome and gingery drinks than this!
Available in all good supermarkets etc at about £1.50 a bottle.
