Zingi Bear is an organic Switchel producer based in the Lake District. Founder Laurie is all about flavour. A trained cheesemaker and brewer, he is obsessed with great tasting food and drink. A few years wiser, and several rounds later, he sought a healthier alternative treat, one that still hit the spot. Soft drinks have needed to up their game for some time, so Zingi Bear started playing with the best natural and organic ingredients to create something special that did just that.
Whilst having a lot of fun experimenting / fermenting / blending / brewing, they discovered an old-school style of drink called a ‘switchel’ – A super thirst-quenching beverage, once drunk by thirsty farmers as an elixir by day, and then as a mixer for spirits by night. This is what they had been searching for! All the flavours sat so well together – a zing from the apple cider vinegar, backed-up by ginger and lemon, then rounded out with honey.
‘Zingi Bear’ (from the latin for ginger ‘zingiber’ – and how it sounded) is their take on that drink. Made with responsibly sourced organic ingredients – taste first / no compromises.
The Ginger Switchel is a sparkling, crisp and delicious thirst-quencher. An adventurous non-alcoholic treat on its own accord or a mighty addition to spirits. Instant zing and zest, carefully balanced by a touch of sweetness, with a well-rounded and warming ginger finish.
