My top 3 non-alcoholic ginger beers

Since starting my chemotherapy treatment I’ve become strictly teetotal.

Consequently I’m now a connoisseur of ginger beer.

These are my 3 favourite ginger beers:

Fentimans Traditional Ginger Beer

Established 1905

Read the company history here.

A 275ml bottle costs £1.20 at my favourite supermarket.

(To price compare with the other two: 750ml would cost £3.27).

Ingredients

Carbonated Water, Fermented Ginger Root Extract (Water, Glucose Syrup, Ginger Root, Pear Juice Concentrate, Yeast), Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Pear Juice Concentrate, Natural Flavourings (Ginger, Lemon, Capsicum), Cream of Tartar, Citric Acid, Herbal Infusions (Speedwell, Juniper, Yarrow)

This is a fiery ginger beer, full of flavour with a real kick in the after-taste.

Belvoir Fresh Root Ginger Beer

Established 1984

Read the company history here.

A 750ml bottle costs £2.40 at the supermarket.

Ingredients

Carbonated Spring Water, Sugar, Lemon Juice (from Concentrate), Fresh Root Ginger Infusion 2%, Pressed Ginger Juice 2% (not from Concentrate), Ginger Extracts, Capsicum Extract

A lighter and more gentle flavour which leaves behind a sharp, spicy zing.

Franklin and Sons Brewed Ginger Beer 

Established 1886

Read the company history here.

750ml bottle costs £2.50 at supermarket prices.

Ingredients

Sparkling Water, Sugar, Non Alcoholic Ferment of Water, Malted Barley Extract and Ginger Extract, Lemon Juice from Concentrate (2.5%), Natural Flavouring, Stabiliser: Gum Acacia, Antioxidant: Ascorbic Acid

Warm ginger overtones combine with a sharp lemony kick to create a lovely traditional ginger beer.

If you’re in the mood for a glass of ginger beer I’d recommend any of these three. Although, of course, you can always make your own!
