about Fentiman's

In 1905, Thomas Fentiman from Cleckheaton, England, was approached by a fellow tradesman for a loan. A deal was struck and a recipe for botanically brewed ginger beer was provided as security. The loan was never repaid so Thomas became the owner of the unique recipe. Thomas began using the recipe and producing botanically brewed ginger beer which he delivered door-to-door using a horse and cart for transport. His ginger beer was stored in handmade stone jars known as ‘grey hens’ which were stamped with an image of Thomas’ pet dog ‘Fearless’ who had won awards for obedience at the famous ‘Crufts’ dog competition. Fentiman’s ginger beer quickly became very popular and the family business grew, with several production factories being opened in the North East of England.

The world has changed a lot during the years since Thomas Fentiman founded the business and Fentimans had to adapt to meet the demands of this world. Changes in the way people shop mean that the brand doesn't deliver door-to-door anymore and instead sell its beverages in retail outlets, bars and restaurants. Some things have not changed however. The business is still in the Fentimans family and is owned by the Great Grandson of Thomas Fentiman.
