Fentimans is a producer of traditional drinks in glass bottles – from Curiosity Cola and Ginger Beer to my favourite drink ever – Victorian Lemonade.
This is their Rose Lemonade. It is available in 750ml bottles and I got mine from Tesco.
I wondered what the addition of rose would be, and it does really enhance the drink. It’s not as strong a lemon flavour as the Victorian Lemonade, but it is fresher, and has a lovely after taste. This more subtle and softer flavour means it is a great accompaniment to a meal (where some of the others are best served as a refreshing drink on their own).
This is botanically brewed but is a soft (non-alcoholic) drink. I think the traditional glass bottles give the drinks a great status, and of course sparkling drinks like these always taste better from glass bottles as the bubbles can’t escape until you take the lid off.
If you’ve never tried a Fentimans drink they you are honestly missing out. They’re even in Spar shops so get yourself a bottle of something now and try it. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
