In 1905, Thomas Fentiman, an iron puddler from Cleckheaton, England was approached by a fellow tradesman for a loan. A deal was struck and a recipe for botanically brewed ginger beer was provided as security. The loan was never repaid so Thomas became the owner of the unique recipe.
Over 100 years later, the process of this special botanically brewed drink has hardly changed and the business remains within the Fentimans family. Fentimans is now owned by the Great Grandson of Thomas Fentiman. Fentimans continue to make delicious natural beverages by the multi-stage botanical brewing technique. The drinks are lovingly made over 7 days, and it is this point of difference that underpins the Fentimans brand promise and delivers unsurpassed quality: characterised by a rich depth of flavour, silky mouthfeel and luxurious body. The indulgent and distinctive flavour experience includes scouring the globe for the finest natural ingredients.
The dog that appears on Fentimans bottles today is ‘Fearless’, Thomas’ faithful family dog, and winner of Crufts obedience class of 1933 and 1934. Thomas was so proud of her achievement that he now uses her portrait to guard every Fentimans bottle to this day.
Stuart Alexander is proud to represent this award winning artisanal beverage.
