They went to great lengths to select 3 types of ginger from different parts of the world:

  • Fresh Green Ginger (Ivory Coast)
  • Nigerian Ginger (Nigeria)
  • Cochin Ginger (India)

All natural flavors, responsible packaging, and a fair price: no wonder thousands of people rate this brand so highly on Amazon. Fever-Tree was a clear winner for Best Overall.
