Fentimans Traditional Mandarin and Seville Orange Jigger 275 ml : Not quite as orange in real life.

Not quite as orange in real life. . I was really looking forward to trying this as it looked lovely and ‘fresh’ orangey. It is more like a sparkling squash with a kick than a fresh orange drink. I still liked it although it wasn’t what i was expecting. Good price for the case though.

First came to our attention when eating out. Pleased to see you supplied it when i looked it up.

I still liked it although it wasn’t what i was expecting. Good price for the case though. Here are the specifications for the Fentimans Traditional Mandarin and Seville Orange Jigger 275 ml:

  • Fermented botanical orange drink with ginger and herbal extracts
  • Fentimans fearless fermentations
  • Retro soft drink

A refreshing drink with that elusive depth which mainstream ‘fizzy drinks’ never seem to achieve and without any artificial aftertaste. A good orange zing to it with the hint of the ‘botanical ingredients’ (speedwell, juniper, ginger). The fentimans’ range and the presentation of the bottles offers that magic of a bygone era and the anticipation that you are about to enjoy something special. It is probably that overall sense of occasion which makes these feel a treat whereas when i drink mainstream fizzy drinks i am just quenching thirst. The others in the range are well worth a look at for similar reasons and i have tried both the ginger beer and dandelion and burdock, which are equally special.

I love the taste of this drink. It a shame it is no longer available from amazon on the save and subscribe service. I would recommend anyone looking for an orange drink with a difference to try.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Fentimans fizzy juice
  • Uses mostly natural sweetness – very low in added sugar
  • Not quite as orange in real life.

Rapid delivery and great price.

The best description is to take any standard carton of orange juice and carbonate it using a soda stream machine. Simple i’ve done this before. I put ordinary orange juice into my soda stream machine and that’s the exact result i got. I might have known this would taste something the same.

  1. Uses mostly natural sweetness – very low in added sugar. Uses mostly natural sweetness – very low in added sugar. It’s the only soft drink i buy for that reason. Delicious orangey flavour with a hint of ginger. Very refreshing and more-ish.

      1. I was delighted to find this and with the swift delivery and while it is very tasty and i enjoyed it, it was not as unusual as the victorian lemonade i love.
