12 sophisticated soft drinks for Dry January

Gingerella Ginger Ale

This softie made our line up partly because we adore its retro packaging, but mainly because it packs a serious flavour punch. The base ingredient is organically grown ginger nurtured by Fairtrade farmers in the Sri Lankan rainforest.

Clean and crisp, it has a fiery underbelly from the ginger, which is mixed with Sicilian lemons, Indian cane sugar, Fairtrade vanilla grown in the Sri Lankan rainforest, cassia and capsicum.

Ginger has long been lauded for its medicinal properties. The super root is renowned for easing and preventing motion sickness, and also helps boost circulation, fight colds and super charge the immune system.

In addition to its über cool packaging, this is a brand with a big heart. It sources its ginger from a trio of small growers dubbed ‘The Spice Girls’ – Tilak, Karuna and Thilanka, who are part of the Sri Lankan Rainforest Garden Growers Association, which brings local farmers together to help them get better prices for their produce.

The makers of Gingerella are also behind Karma Cola, made from kola nuts grown in the Gola Rainforest in Sierra Leone. Every bottle gives back to the Karma Cola Foundation, which in turn gives back to the West African farmers who help make it. RRP: £1.69 / 33cl at Waitrose.
