Where is Aunty's Ginger Tonic Made?


We are based in Sydney and proudly Locally Made and Australian Owned. Originally when I began working with my focus groups - Aunty’s Ginger Tonic was made by myself in my kitchen, by hand. Wonderful memories of humble beginnings. As the markets I attended began selling out each week, I was approached by a now wonderful friend who is a food technologist and she assisted me in finding a certified organic co-manufacturer. The ginger is sourced from Queensland and 98% of what's in your bottle is from Australia.




Why Tamarind as our blending partner to Ginger?


The original recipe made by my Grandmother and Aunty’s included these 2 beautiful ingredients that blend so perfectly with Ginger - I wanted to maintain that inspiration of the original recipe. Much Like Ginger - Tamarind assists in improved digestion, is a comforting soother for coughs and colds, is great source of vegan iron and dietary fibre. The polyphenols in Tamarind have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Tamarind is the fruit pod of a tree native to Asia and Africa, according to "The New Food Lover's Companion," which describes tamarind's as having a "sour-sweet" flavor as being akin to lemons, apricots and dates.
