Fancy a ginseng and tonic?

Drink

London - The Chinese herb ginseng has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. But until now the herb has been seen as very virtuous - so how can you get more people to take it?

Alex Kammerling, a former bartender from London, has spent five years perfecting a recipe for a ginseng-based spirit after realising there was a “gap in the market for a healthier drink that wasn’t gin or vodka”.

The Chinese herb ginseng has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties.

The resulting tipple is blended with grapefruit and 45 botanical ingredients and Mr Kammerling says: “Ginseng, on its own, is pretty foul, which is why it needs a little help. But it has a unique taste and thousands of years of medicinal use.”

With an alcohol content of 33 percent, it should be drunk with tonic water or ginger beer.
