From the Official Website (crabbiesgingerbeer.co.uk)

Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer is made to a recipe with 4 closely-guarded secret ingredients. They’re combined with ginger shipped from the Far East, steeped for up to 6 weeks to produce its deep, deliciously spicy flavour.

PIONEER OF TASTE… It takes taste and imagination to create a drink so delicious that it stands the test of time. The roots of the distinctive Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer stretch all the way back to the early nineteenth century. That’s when our pioneer John Crabbie set sail from the port of Leith, Edinburgh, in search of the finest spices and ingredients from far-off lands.
