We’ve been at this blogging and vlogging “business” for almost 10 years (May 2020 will be our 10th Birthday which seems pretty fitting since we’ve been told many, many times that we act like 10 year olds), so it was just a matter of time before we reviewed a particular beverage on more than one occasion…
On today’s episode of A Tasting at The Murder Table, we are revisiting Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer, a beverage that we first reviewed way back in July of 2014. We most definitely enjoyed it way back when, but to be honest, I don’t think we’ve had it again since that review, so we were curious to see if our opinions had changed at all. Hence the re-review.
Before we get to that, here are a few words about this beverage taken directly from their website:
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.
Shipped across the often treacherous seas the ginger was then steeped for six weeks before being combined with four top secret ingredients to produce the nation’s favourite ginger beer.
