Drink Spotlight: Belvoir Ginger Cordial

 

 

Belvoir Fruit Farms’ Ginger Cordial is an old favourite and one of our best-selling cordials. This magnificent warm and spicy drink has no secret ingredient – just a 100% natural one. We make each and every bottle by cooking fresh root ginger here on the farm to achieve the genuinely spicy taste of ginger, which could never be recreated by using flavourings. Mix our Ginger Cordial with sparkling water for old-fashioned ginger beer, or with hot water for a spicy warming winter toddy. For cocktails, add a little whisky to make a great Whisky Mac or vodka for a delicious Moscow Mule.

About the company

Belvoir Fruit Farms nestles deep in the English countryside in the idyllic Vale of Belvoir. We’ve been making cordials here for nearly 30 years, pressing fresh fruit and infusing flowers to mix with the famous Belvoir spring water.

Renowned for our elderflower drinks, we still use the same elderflower recipe developed by co-founder Mary Manners all those years ago. Originally, all the elderflowers were handpicked from bushes growing around Lord and Lady John Manners’ garden. The whole family helped to make the first batch of elderflower cordial, chopping the lemons and stirring the syrup. Lord John then popped the 88 cases of drinks into the back of his car and went round local farm shops, persuading the owners to buy a bottle here and there.

Today, demand is so high that Belvoir calls on the local community to help with the harvest, picking flowers from our own orchards and from hedgerows in the surrounding countryside.

Drink Spotlight: Belvoir Spiced Apple & Ginger Cordial

 

 

This 100% natural cordial is delicious with still or sparkling water for a long, cooling summer drink. In the winter, the combination of spicy root ginger, cinnamon and cardamom make this the perfect base for a hot toddy. Try making it with hot water, adding lemon juice, a cinnamon stick and a couple of thin slices of root ginger for a comforting drink that will naturally soothe your stuffy nose and tickly cough. You could even add a good slug of whisky to put the colour back in your cheeks! Served hot without the whisky, it also makes a great winter warmer.

About the company
Mary Manners, the wife of our founder Lord John Manners, started making cordials in her kitchen in the Seventies by infusing the elderflowers and pressing the fruit grown on the farm. Since then, Belvoir has carried on the same infusing, pressing and cooking of fresh flowers, fruits and spices, which are then blended with local spring water to make our delicious drinks. We never compromise on quality, and choose only the best ingredients. Everything that goes into our drinks is real and natural with nothing artificial at all.

Drink Spotlight: Roar Living 100% Natural Cordials

 

Using the ancient process of pressing, infusing, crushing, grinding & steeping Roar Living brings you 3 unique flavours.

 


Plum Pudding

Davidson Plums are gently poached with cinnamon.

The mixture is strained then added to raw sugar syrup to steep then strained again.

Raspberry Jam
Plump sweet juicy raspberries are carefully pressed then lemon juice is added. Raw sugar syrup is gently poured over then simmered.


Cool Mint

Mint is carefully bruised then steeped in fresh lime juice and its zest. After a period of time it is all infused with raw sugar cane syrup.

Whilst all care is taken to strain, at times there will be a few particles in the cordial, which brings out the pure nature of the process.

There are no fillers or emulsifiers to bind together, you may find separation, so please shake before use.
 

 

 

About the Company
It is a custom in the Middle East to offer your guests a thirst quenching refreshment upon their arrival into your home.

That says a lot about where ROAR LIVING has come from.

Founder of Roar Living Maria Assatourian found her passion with food at

the age of 4. Maria began life in Iran where the kitchen was, and still is, the soul

of the home and most ingredients came straight from the garden.

By age 7 Maria was baking cakes, Lamingtons to be precise.

Maria turned her passion into a career: an apprenticeship with Neil Perry at The Rockpool, and with Damian Pignolet at Bistro Moncur. She worked for later with Colin Holt and Matthew Flemming, ending up as Sous Chef of the White Horse Inn in historic Berrima. Read More

Drink Spotlight: Aroha Wild Rose Hip Cordial

 

 

As well as being completly delicious, rose-hips are particularly high in vitamin C (as much as 5 x more than citrus fruit!). The hip is the fruit of the rose bush and though not so well know today, it was particularly 'hip' in the 1940's and 50's when it was recommended to give to yound children to keep them healthy through the winters.
Recent research out of Copenhagen university has shown that Rose-Hip's can reduce the pain from osteoarthritis up to 3 times more effectively that panadol!

 

Our Wild Rose-Hip Cordial is sourced out of Central Otago. During autumn the hills literally turn red with the little berries. This is a great one to serve hot during winter days.

 

 
About Aroha
In Maori language "Aroha" is a word meaning love for the land and its people. In 2007 Mark made his first batch of Aroha cordial which he made from wild elderflowers grown on the Canterbury Plains. Its colour was a beautiful gold and it tasted delicious.
Many years before Mark’s mother picked up a French hitchhiker from the roadside. The Frenchman showed her how to use the elderflower, which was abundant and in full flower at that time. Together they turned the elderflower into a delicious drink which the whole family enjoyed. Read More

Drink Spotlight: Thorncroft Kombucha Cordial

Kombucha is a truly remarkable and ancient health drink from the East, made by fermenting sweetened green tea with a special microbial culture.

Kombucha aficionados, who often make their own Kombucha at home,believe it contributes to general well-being by strengthening and stabilising your metabolic and digestive processes. Among them is Nobel prizewinner Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who wrote in his autobiography that it saved his life in the Siberian slave camps.

Thorncroft are the only people to make a concentrated Kombucha Cordial. We do this by evaporating off most of the water from the fermented Kombucha base at low temperature and pressure, leaving a concentrate 30 times stronger than the original brew. We then blend peach juice concentrates, and cider vinegar, to give a fine flavoured cordial ready for mixing with mineral water.

 

Ingredients
Cane sugar, water, Kombucha 30 x concentrate 31% (from sweetened green tea fermented with Kombucha culture) peach juice concentrate, fruit tea extract, cider vinegar, natural flavours.
