Drink Spotlight: Gran Stead´s Mellow Ginger


Winner of the highest accolades at the 2009 Great Taste Awards - Three Star Gold and Best Speciality for the South East

For over 150 years, Granny Stead’s original ginger drink has delighted generations. Expertly prepared, her unique combination of exotic spices and ingredients make this Mellow Ginger the true family favourite.

Rich, smooth and vibrant, Gran Stead’s Mellow Ginger has broad appeal and won’t leave you gasping for water. That’s because the heat is expertly balanced with a welcome hint of sweetness. The unique taste is derived from an intense essence extracted from the rhizomes of fresh ginger. A sprinkling of capsicum adds definition but doesn’t overheat. The colour is intensified by caramel, which also contributes to the lusciously rich flavour.
