Last thursday, I attended a small gathering of some of the country’s top food bloggers for the launch of Roots Ginger Brew which was held at Outback Steakhouse in Glorieta 4 Makati City.

Quite possibly the best new ginger ale drink in the world is Australia’s Roots Ginger Brew. It was my first time to taste it and I really really like it. It has the bite and strength of a sparkling ginger drink made from real ginger, and it has the perfect level of sweetness.It not just good tasting, it also has a natural anti-oxidant, it soothes the throat and it also helps promote good digestion. Roots Ginger Brew Sparkling Drink is tasty, authentic, and now they have finally expanded to the Manila market – thank goodness!

If you love mixing alcoholic drinks like me:) You can also use it as a mixer with rum for the perfect cool cocktail after a hard day’s work. As a world-class city, Manila has most of the international brands you would expect to see.

But we have been missing out on some of the more boutique-style beverages that gain an international following quickly. Roots Ginger Brew is one of the newest product of Asia Brewery but they initially started out quite small with the idea of bringing a delicious and refreshing sparkling ginger drink to Australia.

The company just launched their tasty beverage in November of last year. Here in Manila, I’ve been just waiting to see it on shelves. Personally, a truly ginger-crisp sparkling drink is better than a cola on a hot day.

Did you know that there’s as much salt in a Coke as there is in an entire pizza!? Makes you thirsty for more – but there’s so much sugar, salt, and things that are not good for your health. So say goodbye to Cola!

Roots is brewed with real ginger and if you check the ingredient list you’ll find nothing weird or foreign in there. All natural for all delicious. The Aussies are serious about sparkling ginger, so it’s no surprise that Roots is excellent.

I love Roots Ginger Brew, and I’m glad to see they’ve expanded this way. How about the price? This new product from down under only costs P21.00 SRP and as you read this, you can now find Roots Ginger Brew in 7-Elevens around Metro Manila as well as in major supermarkets.

  1. Thanks for sharing this information. I will definitely try this one and I will take your word about it. Finally, something that I would enjoy drinking without having to worry about too much sugar. Cheers!!

  2. I’ve never tried any drink made with ginger. Salabat taste, I can tolerate. Sparkling water, I don’t really drink because it makes me dizzy. But will try this to satisfy the curiosity 🙂

    • @Dems – I also have a friend who gets dizzy with sparkling water but you can recommend this to your friends, its better than cola

  3. We need to have more choices especially to “ginger ale” category. So far Schweppes, is always on top of my mind. But I will surely try this new brand as an alternative and value for money too. 🙂

  4. I’d love to try that. Just by reading your post, it makes me want to try myself. I’m not much a ginger ale fan because of the amoy ng ginger — but let me try this one. ^^

  5. This is so weird, yet so good. I’m confused. (Found out about this from KaBino, so thanks! And I asked HIM to buy it for me..;-))
