False Ox Botanical Shrubs are concentrated syrups made from fruit, vinegar, sugar, herbs, and spices.
As long as humans have been making alcohol they have been making vinegar. Alcohol exposed to the air naturally turns into vinegar. The Babylonians, in 5000 BC, were using date palm fruit to make both wine and vinegar. In Egypt, urns from 3000 BC also contained vinegar and there are written accounts of vinegar from China around 1200 BC.
Using Organic Apple Cider Vinegar to preserve seasonal fruits, berries, herbs and vegetables, many households made delicious shrubs from that vinegar, mixed with water, and often alcohol to create seasonal, local, organic drinks.
False Ox Botanical Shrubs taste delicious and fresh, using this age old technique to create modern drinks with the health benefits of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.
Our shrubs are made to be both tart and sweet to create a balanced and refreshing drink. Mixed with mineral water to make a fantastically thirst quenching beverage, or mixed with our favourite spirits to create amazing and innovative cocktails.
