côquetelers la French svp 100% francais bio tonic français cocktail liqueur de sapin

The Côquetelers brand was founded by a pair of long-time friends: Timothée, who comes from a merger-acquisition background, and Matthieu, who grew up in the middle of the vineyards in a family of winegrowers.

After having made their own experiences, they got together and launched themselves into the somewhat crazy project of this tour of Europe, and today of the Côquetelers.

A beautiful story that has given birth to beautiful products:

Absinthe de Pontarlier X Distillerie Pierre Guy (70cl/45°)
Gingerbread liqueur x Maison Briottet (70cl/18°)
Genièvre Flandre Artois (GI) x Distillerie Persyn (70cl/43°)

Where does Ginger Beer come from ?

  • Post category:Ginger Beer

Totally unknown just a few years ago, this drink is now the star of the bars! Recommended for its benefits and adored for its spicy taste, it can be enjoyed on its own as well as in cocktails! As you may have gathered, Ginger Beer is THE drink of the moment! But where does it come from?

ginger beer number 1 France organic La French s'il vous plaît svp
A little bit of culture… discover Ginger beer: from its origins to today!

Ginger beer is a soft, non-alcoholic, carbonated beverage that originated in Jamaica.

As its name does not indicate, it is not beer but a fermented, non-alcoholic drink made from ginger, water and sugar. It is obtained by bottling a liquid based on fresh ginger when molasses fermentation begins using baker’s yeast. Not to be confused with ginger ale, a kind of lemonade (soda) flavoured with ginger, but sweeter and less ginger-flavoured than ginger beer.

Ginger beer, originally an alcoholic beverage, was first brewed in Yorkshire in the 1700s before becoming very popular in Britain and North America; by 1935 there were 3,000 breweries in Britain, 300 in the United States (where it was affected by the Prohibition Act) and 1,000 in Canada.

Usually sold as a non-alcoholic soda, today Ginger Beer is everywhere. With the French craze for non-alcoholic cocktails and mocktails, this drink is also widely used as part of cocktail recipes, as ginger has the characteristic of enhancing the taste values of alcoholic drinks.

La French s’il vous plaît has seized the opportunity of this market and is today the French leader of this drink. With its organic recipe, 100% French and low sugar level, you can find Ginger Beer in 20cl and 1L formats from our suppliers and at our partner cafés, hotels and restaurants.

Convinced? Would you like a little Moscow Mule?
