“A fiery ginger grown-up soft drink that’s gentle at first but leaves a kick at the back of your throat” – that’s how Classics Sparkling Ginger was described on the Simon Mayo Show on BBC Radio 2 last night.
In Simon’s regular cookery feature with Nigel Barden, our Sparkling Ginger was chosen as the perfect soft drink accompaniment for an Iranian chicken stew made with spinach and prunes.
The brilliant blend of ginger, galangal and juniper was picked to balance the saffron and citrus notes in the dish, which is known as Aloo Esfinaj.
We’re thrilled that Classics Sparkling Ginger was featured and excited to have a new food pairing to try out.
