The lowdown: Crabbies use real steeped ginger all the way from the Far East to make their ginger beer. Then Crabbies take 8 long weeks to brew their top secret ingredients and steeped ginger blend to achieve the deliciously quaffable deep spicy flavour.
The story of Crabbie's began in Edinburgh, 1801 when Miller Crabbie became the father of a young boy - John Crabbie.
Born into a thriving grocery and spirit merchant family business in one of the poorest and heavily industrialised areas of Edinburgh, John Crabbie capitalised on the nearby port of Leith, providing him access to ingredients from all over the world.
Taking his quest to the Far East in the 19th Century he fell in love with elephants while sourcing the very finest ginger which is still used to this day.
