We at The Dorset Ginger Company Ltd have been producing award-winning, non-alcoholic, non-carbonated, hand blended ginger drinks and Sicilian lemonade since 1985. Originally, the products were only sold locally and at various fairs, now, the Dorset Ginger Company’s drinks are available both nationally and internationally as it has expanded. Currently, the range is produced in the picturesque village of Lytchett Matravers, on the outskirts of Poole.
Over the years, the company has grown and has been recognised by a number of accreditation schemes and awards. In 2017, we received SALSA Accreditation, which means only the highest quality standards are maintained. The following year, our popularity received yet another boost from former Dragon’s Den personality, Theo Paphitis, after winning his popular Twitter competition “Small Business Sunday”. We were delighted to be retweeted by the business tycoon, who has nearly half a million followers.
More recognition was to follow after we reached the finals two years running of the Dorset Magazine’s Food, Drink & Farming Awards in the Best Drink Produce category. This was especially humbling, as the award is voted for by the public.
All the drinks produced by the Dorset Ginger Company Ltd are gently pasteurised in the bottle to give them a long shelf life and eliminate the need for adding potassium sorbate. They can be enjoyed on their own or used as mixers for cocktails and mocktails or even in baking and cooking! You can find examples of recipes in the book, The Ginger Chef all Served Up, which is available, with a number of other gifts, from our online shop.
In 2019, the range expanded with 2 new flavours: a refreshing Apple with a Ginger Kick and the intense Extra Strong Ginger which is the strongest ginger drink in the UK. All our drinks are available in 33cl and 75cl bottles and can be found online, at Co-op stores around Dorset and Hampshire and in a number of other outlets.
