Rochester packs a punch. … it kicks like two angry mules – and indeed it does. Launched to much acclaim at the Good Food & Wine Show recently, Rochester Ginger is apparently made from a Dickensian recipe that harks back to the 1870s. The ingredients include pressed ginger root, elderflower, cowslip and raisins (great for the immune system) and can be served in a variety of ways – neat or diluted, or added to your tea. And if that doesn’t knock you about enough, then try its sister, the very delicious Rochester Organic Mulled Berry Punch. Full of winter spice, it’s perfect as a hot toddy before popping off to bed. Both are non-alcoholic.
