Genuine Victorian Transfer Printed 
GINGER BEER

G. Welch ~ Gilpin Lane ~ Sheffield, England
c. 1890

This is a wonderful English Victorian large stoneware bottle pot that once held Ginger Beer. The original recipe requires only ginger, sugar, water, lemon juice and a fungal-bacteria symbiote known as a ginger beer plant. Fermentation over a few days turns the mixture into ginger beer. Brewed ginger beer originated in Yorkshire in the mid-18th century.

Botanical brewing is a simple process involving herbs and plant roots. The original recipe involved milling ginger roots before tumbling them into copper steam jacketed pans and leaving them to bubble and simmer releasing all their flavour. The finest herbs, natural flavourings, sugar, brewer's yeast and fresh spring water were then added to the liquid which was transferred into wooden vats where it was left to ferment.

A large 10 1/2 inches tall x 6 inches wide

Great Condition.
