Throughout the week, people can enjoy Crabbie’s Original and Spiced Orange flavors, perfectly served over ice with a slice of citrus, at an array of events including the Crabbie’s Pool Party, Crabbie’s Quizzo, parties with J.C. the 7-ft inflatable Elephant, Paint Nite and at samplings around town.

The story of Crabbie’s began in Edinburgh during the early 19th century with drink merchant John Crabbie. Capitalizing on the access to the nearby Port of Leith provided Crabbie with ingredients from many nations, he sourced the finest ginger and exotic spices for his signature Green Ginger Wine, starting a legacy that would last for generations to come. Crabbie’s iconic Asian elephant trademark symbolizes its heritage;  200 years ago, elephants were traditionally used to explore un-trodden grounds to procure ingredients. Today, Crabbie’s is sold across the globe and produced in a variety of refreshing flavors all made to the same exceptional standards set by John Crabbie all those years ago.

Crabbie’s has established, and leads, the alcoholic ginger beer category in the United States. Crabbie’s Original is carefully crafted from a recipe that uses the finest ginger which is cold steeped for up to six weeks and then combined with exotic spices. The result is a light bodied ginger beer with a spicy fresh ginger flavor, notes of citrus and a warming finish. Crabbie’s Spiced Orange Alcoholic Ginger Beer offers the same refreshing taste as the Original but with a lighter ginger profile and a zesty orange flavor.

The newest addition to the Crabbie’s family is the first, non-ginger option Crabbie’s Fruits: Cloudy Alcoholic Lemonade. A quenching drink (4.8%) with an aroma of fresh lemons, a zesty lemon taste and a refreshing, tart finish, Cloudy Alcoholic Lemonade is best served ice cold, drank straight out of the bottle.
