Burning questions & waterlogged answers
As our juices say, Martin Frobisher’s is “bashed and bottled” – and that’s always a glass bottle. We go to all lengths, at all times, to avoid the perilous use of plastic. At the moment, while we’re shipping our tipples to eager shops and thirsty bars, we pack them in cardboard trays with an outer plastic wrap. We’re hunting high and low for an alternative and, indeed, eagerly making every endeavour to reduce our use of plastic.
You’ll find Martin Frobisher’s tipples arrayed in splendour in the refrigerators of the finest taverns, bars and restaurants across the UK. In addition, you may enjoy them in a range of hospitable hotels, desirable delis, covetable coffee shops and other valuable venues.
All our tipples are indeed ready to drink, with the exception of our Curious Cordials. For those captivating concoctions, we would heartily recommend the addition of the wettest water – still or, indeed, sparkling – and urge you also to consider mixing them with a good dose of a spirit of your choice for the perfect cocktail.
To this, we say No, No and – resoundingly – No. We believe Nature is remarkable enough on Her own, so refuse artificial additives, colourings or preservatives. Instead, we place our trust in fine fruit and vital veg, botanicals and herbs.
Dutch Courage is an elegant expression harking back to the 17th century and the Thirty Years’ War. It was said that troops from Holland, fighting alongside the English, drank heavily of old Jenever, or Gin, and consequently displayed a high degree of confidence in battle. “Courage without the Dutch”, therefore, is that confidence, but without the alcoholic assistance. We believe it represents the extraordinarily refreshing experience of Martin Frobisher’s tipples.
Yes! All our tipples are vegetarian- and vegan- friendly.
Assuredly, our glass bottles are fully recyclable. But why stop there, when there is the option of “upcycling” before you? Fashion a characterful candleholder, a vase for a pretty posy, a ship-in-a-bottle or what you will. And send proof of your artistic outpourings with our tag on Instagram…
There is circa 20% recycled glass in each of our all our fine bottles (excluding cordials), this amount is the optimum to allow the glass to remain clear. Our curious cordial bottles have a higher percentage of recycled glass within them, coloured glass allows for more imperfections.
Steel is the most widely recycled packaging material in Europe and can be infinitely recycled. That’s a shipload of screw on bottle caps!
All our fruit tipples are transported in trays made from 70% recycled material and are 100% recyclable. We only use cardboard certified by the FSC.
We recommend you serve your Martin Frobisher’s fruit tipple in a state of perfect chill, to ensure the highest degree of enjoyment. But don’t fear: they can happily be stored at room temperature.
