Reed's All Natural Jamaican Style Ginger Ale's recipe is from Jamaica where the art of home-brewing ginger ale (or ginger beer as it is called there) is still practiced. Reed's recipe uses the finest fresh ginger root (17 grams per bottle), exotic spices, honey, pineapple, lemon and lime juices. Before modern soft drink technology existed, non-alcoholic beverages were brewed at home directly from herbs, roots, spices and fruits. These hand-crafted brews were then aged like wine and prized not only for their taste but for their tonic, health-giving properties. Reed's brews are a delicious revival of this lost home-brewing art and are made the original way using the finest fresh herbs, roots, spices and fruits. Each batch is carefully brewed and aged with great pride by Reed's expert brewmasters. In many cultures, ginger is believed to be an excellent digestive aid, arthritis remedy, motion sickness cure and general all-around tonic root.
