什麼是Botanical Brewing香草釀製？簡單來說，一枝或一罐現代的汽水飲品可能只需要數分鐘、或最多數小時來製造。用傳統的Botanical Brewing香草釀製方式，一枝Fentiman’s飲品需時一星期來調製。
Fentiman’s is a small drinks manufacturing company based in Northern England that produces old fashioned classic British drinks. A man named Thomas Fentiman started the company in 1905 when he acquired the recipes from his colleague at the iron mill.
For nearly 110 years, the company has been producing old fashioned drinks through an old production method called: Botanical Brewing.
What is Botanical Brewing? A bottle or a can of “modern” day soft drinks takes a couple of minutes, maybe a few hours to produce. By using the traditional methods of botanical brewing, a bottle of Fentiman takes a week to produce.
Botanical brewing is a process using plant roots and natural herbs. Inside a huge “cooking pan”, ginger roots are boiled and simmered. Herbs, sugar, natural flavorings, yeast, and spring water are then added. The liquid is then left in a wooden container to mature for 7 days. As a result, a lot of flavors are introduced to the drink naturally and slowly. This leads to a much stronger, unique flavor that is unlike any other soft drinks on the market.
When Thomas Fentiman started his company in 1905, he would deliver his drinks to the clients with stone jars on a horse cart. Times have moved on, Fentiman’s drinks are sold now in a unique glass deign. Fentiman’s products are not available in aluminum cans. A lot of people today still prefer glass bottles than aluminum cans. Why?
When aluminum cans are produced inside factories, special linings are used to coat the cans. These chemical linings inside aluminum cans actually alter the taste of drinks very slightly. Even a small amount can cause a difference in taste. This is why glass bottle drinks taste more original than those in aluminum cans.
Why is the company logo a dog? The logo is a dog, a German shepherd called “Fearless”, which belongs to Thomas Fentiman, the founder of the company.
