Fever-Tree Ginger Beer is an exquisite drink that is made to bless your palettes. With every sip, it gives a very fresh taste of ginger and is not overly sweet. The fiery taste of this Ginger Beer is developed by using three types of ginger from three different parts of the world; India, Nigeria, and the Ivory Coast. All three are responsible for adding distinctive characteristics to the drink. Such as:
- Indian Ginger gives the drink a very warm and spicy flavor.
- Ivory Coast Ginger gives a fresh characteristic much like that of Lemongrass.
- Nigerian Ginger gives it a very intense flavor.
There is nothing better than a glass of Ginger Beer at the end of your meal. You just want something light to drink and cleanse your palette with before you doze off. You may not be aware of the fact that you can make your own Ginger Beer at home that is much similar in taste to Fever-Tree Ginger Beer. It may take some time, but it is worth the wait.

- Take a mesh sieve and place the pureed Ginger on it and press down with a wooden spoon or a spatula to remove the juices well.
- Repeat the process until you get all the juice out.
