Launched in 2017, the Green Angel Syndicate invested firm, Scottish Bee Company, has quickly established itself as one the country's leading super food producers with sales contracts already secured with Selfridges, Fortnum and Mason, House of Bruar and Edinburgh's IJ Mellis, as well as speciality health food shops in the Far East.
The Scottish Bee Company now hopes to build on its award-winning success by diversifying into the growing craft shrub cordials and vinegars market.
Shrubs, a non-alcoholic syrup used to make drinks, is known for adding complexity and flavour to beverages. The syrups contain apple cider vinegar, known for its health benefits, extremely concentrated fruits, sugars and aromatics.
Made near Ellon in Aberdeenshire, The Scottish Bee Company's three new shrub flavours include Strawberry and Mint, Spiced Apple and Bramble, and Raspberry and Ginger.
The new vinegars are also made in Aberdeenshire and have been designed to showcase a taste of Scotland, bringing some fruitiness to roasted vegetables or sharpness to salads. The three new flavours are Strawberry and Peppercorn; Raspberry and Thyme; and Bramble and Sage.
