Fentimans make the original and best botanically brewed drinks in the world. Botanical brewing is a time-honoured technique of making superior quality beverages using a combination of infusion, skillful blending and fermentation of natural ingredients. Over 100 years after Thomas Fentimans started brewing botanical drinks the business is still in the family, with the knowledge and expertise being passed on from generation to generation, with Fentimans now owned by his great grandson. They continue to make their delicious natural beverages using the multi-stage botanical brewing technique, but their processes have been updated and their beverages are now carbonated before being filled and pasteurised to extend the product shelf life. The one thing that has not changed is the superior quality and unsurpassed taste of their drinks. (Stand D4).
