Time travel your taste buds with Shrub Drinks, our artisanal collection of drinking vinegars, shrubs or switchels. Shrubs have been called many things in many languages over the millennia. Their name comes from the Arabic shurb, meaning drink, and sharbat, a Hindi word for an aromatic syrup made from fruit or herb and flower extracts, that is stirred into water and served over ice. Their tradition in so many different global culinary cultures inspires us to share this timeless treat in a thoroughly modern context. Shrub Drinks’ effortless versatility as thirst quenching beverage, intriguing, cutting-edge cocktail ingredient and cook’s companion are sure to stir your creativity.
So What's a Shrub?
Shrubs have nothing to do with landscapes or hedges but they certainly do have a great story.
The name shrub comes not from the garden, though you'll enjoy drinking them there, but from the Arabic shurb, meaning drink, and sharbat, a Hindi word for an aromatic syrup made from fruit or herb and flower extracts, that is stirred into water and served over ice. The English term Shrub first appears in print in 1747 in London’s Gentleman’s Magazine referring to a fancy libation.
There is some speculation that these thirst quenchers were first sipped in the hot climes of the Middle East, but wherever they originated we know for certain that they enjoyed great popularity in the USA beginning in colonial times.
From first sip, we knew that they deserved another moment, so in early summer of 2012 we began selecting the very finest organic fruits of the season, then followed an arduous month long tending and stirring process to make each batch and we haven’t stopped since.
Our Shrub Drinks are a thoroughly modern collection of lovingly tended and delicious highly concentrated seasonal fruit-based concentrates in the tradition of those that have been enjoyed around the globe for centuries. We make them the artisan’s way, by hand, in tiny batches.
About the Company
Well Seasoned LLC began producing shrubs mid-2012 and we haven’t stopped stirring since. Shrub Drinks are simple. Just fresh fruit at its prime, pure cane sugar and chef selected vinegar blended to showcase the luscious best of each fruit. Our shrubs are made in San Antonio, Texas by just four hands with over 60 years of collective culinary professional experience. We personally obsess over every batch and bottle. Our well-seasoned hands carefully select and then lovingly process the season’s finest fruit, touching each piece at least once, often many more times. We tend and taste and combine flavors. We produce in tiny batches; each batch takes more than a month from fruit to bottle. Read More
