Ginger

GingerGinger originated from the jungles of South Asia, and was exported to Europe from India in the 1st Century AD during the spice trade boom, when it was highly sought after for its medicinal qualities. Ginger is packed full of nutrients, including magnesium, potassium, Vitamin B6, Copper, and antioxidants. It is said to prevent cold and flu symptoms, morning sickness and nausea, and improve circulation.

We use only Australian grown ginger in our drinks. Ginger is planted in September in Queensland, where it is humid, and there are rich volcanic soils, providing the perfect conditions to yield a great crop. The Australian ginger is perfect for eating in February and March, and then a further harvest is done in July or August when the ginger is larger, and hotter in taste. This ginger is then processed and used for spices, and also the oil is extracted.

For our Apple, Ginger & Rosella Milla Cordial we have added just a hint of single strength ginger juice, and it appeals to all the family, even the most reluctant ginger fan. By all means add more ginger if you are a ginger nut! This particular flavour is fantastic in the winter, served with hot water in a mug, especially if you are fighting a cold. If you are fighting fit, this flavour is a perfect marriage with Gin, and we have a great recipe here for you to try.  Otherwise simply enjoy this served with sparkling water, chopped up apples, lashings of ice and a few mint leaves for garnish.
