Soft Drinks

The Jeffries family have been brewing their own drinks for over half a century, all starting with Dennis Jeffries.
Den was renowned for his home brews, cooked up by himself on the kitchen stove. Money was tight back in the 60s for a lorry driver with three boys and his wife, Audrey, to support; but there was always a jar – as he called it – waiting in the pantry when he got home. 50 years on, the third generation of the family are still
bottling up, with seven carefully blended flavours to make your mouth water.

Kombucha Tea

KOMBUCHA Tea Brewing and Bottling

Wild Fizz Kombucha is a raw sparking tea packed full of live cultures, healthy enzymes, minerals and vitamins. Low in sugar, high in taste, it’s delicious and good for you.

Wild Fizz Kombucha came to life in 2016 after founder Gina Geoghegan started drinking it in America to help reduce symptoms of IBS. Once back in the UK, she couldn’t find a similar product that made her feel as good, so decided to make her own.

We use only organic ingredients, we brew the old-fashioned way and love and care for our ‘SCOBYs’ and our ‘BOOCH’ every day.

Bottled Cocktails

So, why make a bottled cocktail ?

It all dates back to 1862 when the legend Jerry Thomas created the first club cocktails, pre-made for faster service in his bars and saloons.

Jerry realised that to make a great cocktail it’s easier and faster to make in bulk and that they taste better beacause the cocktail flavours have time to merge and mellow, creating a unique taste.

Another key factor in 1862 was finding good bar-tenders, by pre-bottling, Jerry could get the perfect serve every time. Bottled Cocktails can double the revenue and speed of any bar!

BottlingUK are experts in Bottled Cocktails. We can take a bar recipe and convert it to a commercial recipe.
…better still, we can bottle it for you in our bottling-plant based in London.

Juice Drinks

Sansu was founded in London, in 2015 and is a premium Yuzu fruit drink. Sansu are the first company in the world to create a range of fruit drinks using Yuzu as the core ingredient.

Nourished by the sea breeze of the Far East, Yuzu plays a special role in seasonal traditions. Its juice is consumed ice cold in the summer months. Its peel is infused in teas during the long snowy winters.

Yuzu’s scarce production quantity and high costs have limited its usage. However, Sansu hope to make Yuzu more accessible in a ready-to-drink format.

BottlingUK have worked with Sansu for 3 years helping them grow into a global brand.
