Based in the South Downs National Park, by the coast in Sussex, Gran Stead's Ginger Co produces unique and mainly ginger-based soft drinks with a nostalgic nod to yesteryear.

There are six traditional flavours in the Gran Stead's drinks range: Mellow Ginger; Fiery Ginger; Still Lemonade; Still Lemonade with Zing; Blackcurrant with Zing; and Spiced Ginger Punch.

Gran Stead's drinks were inspired by an original recipe created by Gran Stead herself back in the 19th century.

Today, these delightful drinks are made at Mile Oak Farm near Portslade, in Sussex, by husband-and-wife team Chris and Rosemary Knox. Just like "Granny" herself, they love ginger and their customers do too.

People really appreciate the quality of these handmade products, which are so different from mass produced fizzy beverages.

They are a great mixer for cocktails and delicious on their own, so Gran Stead's are the perfect addition to bars at restaurants and pubs, as well as for home drinks cabinets.

Local Food Sussex says

Ditch the mass-produced fizzy drinks and instead invest in a bottle (or two) of delightful Gran Stead's. From "knock-your-socks-off" hot Fiery Ginger to gently spiced fruity zingers and the most lemony of lemonades, these Sussex-made drinks are refreshing all-year-rounders.
