Ginger Joe Review


For 270 years Stones of London have been dealing with the spicy root called ginger, they've got the ginger wine down to a 'T'
So now they have turned their attention to ginger beer, no not the lovely fizzy pop that reminds me of Enid Blyton's Famous Five.... but real Ginger Beer called Ginger Joe.

Stones asked me to try it and as its close to my name and I have a huge ginger beer fan in the house, I said yes please!

Its exactly as you imagine still has that lovely warming spicy kick. The alcohol makes it warmer, as with the Ginger wine its lovely to try a childhood drink geared for the grownups.

Why the name Ginger Joe, well I went 'rooting' pardon the ginger pun and found this

The legend of Ginger Joe is inspired by ‘Ginger’ Joseph Stone, moustachioed London greengrocer and illustrious founder of the noble house of Stone. Legend says Joe was fanatical about the tantalising taste of the ginger root (lat. Zingiber Officinale) and that his first ‘dip in the ginge’ circa 1740 produced a tipple that literally singed the tips of his ‘tache – an image now immortalised on every bottle of our refreshingly feisty alcoholic ginger beer.

Say hello to the new alcoholic ginger beer

Light and refreshing, with subtle yet spicy ginger notes, feisty Ginger Joe offers a thirst-quenching, tantalising new taste. The alcoholic ginger beer electrifies and tingles the taste-buds; providing the perfect tipple as summer slips away and autumn approaches on the ginger-tinged horizon.

Send taste-buds into a tizzy with tache-twisting tastings tips to excite the senses. Add some zest with a squeeze of lemon or lime; enjoy with a sneaky splash and a dash of spirit; or sweeten the dullest of days by stirring in strawberries and studding with mint.

Savour the tasty ting and tangy flavour of Ginger Joe with a hearty pub lunch, complement to a fiery curry, or simply serve straight-up over mountains of ice – sip or swallow, whichever takes your fancy, but always enjoy with imagination.
