StoneR17;s Original Green Ginger is a highly flavoured wine. The finest quality ginger is selected and whole ginger roots are dried and processed before despatch to the Stone’s winery. We draw the character from the ginger root using heat and wine for over a week. After this period of steeping, the infusion is added to a clean neutral dry white wine which is blended with other, secret, components before bottling. Stone’s Original Green Ginger is a rich golden brown colour with a powerful pungent ginger aroma. This spicy character follows on the palate where its zest is quite noticeable, but moderated by a softening sweetness. The aftertaste is fairly warming and this sensation contributes a certain glow to the palate.

Over 250 Years of History The Stone’s blend is still made to the original recipe and uses the fines quality wine grapes and pure ginger. Chapter 1 - London Excise Act The origins of Stone’s Original Ginger Wine, the UK’s favourite ginger tipple, are well documented. The drink’s roots date back to 1740 and the foundation of a company called The Finsbury Distilling Company in the City of London. The drinks business was booming and distilleries were flourishing across London. This was the era of Hogarth’s ‘Gin Lane’ and the widespread drunkenness and disorderly conduct in parts of the city was becoming cause for concern. As a result in 1751 an excise act was passed prohibiting distillers from selling direct to the public. Chapter 2 - Finsbury Distillery The Finsbury Distilling Company, like many of their counterparts, needed to build a retail network to sell their wares. These included Joseph Stone, grocer of High Holborn. An extremely important customer of the distillers, his name was given to their Ginger Wine. Made then, as it still is today from the finest quality wine grapes and pure fresh ginger, Stone’s Original Green Ginger Wine quickly became the flagship of the Finsbury Distilling Company’s British wines division. Chapter 3 - Ginger Medicinal Properties Sales of Stone’s Original Green Ginger Wine continued to grow during the 19th century. In 1832, amid the cholera epidemic, sales were boosted by the widely held belief that ginger offered protection against the disease. Ginger’s medicinal properties - it has also been hailed as an aid to digestion and as an effective aphrodisiac - undoubtedly contributed to the everlasting popularity (and cult like following) of Stone’s Original Green Ginger Wine. Chapter 4 - Joseph Stone At about this time, the Stone family’s links with the Finsbury Distilling Company were strengthened when Joseph Stone’s son John joined them as an apprentice. He quickly rose through the company to become one of their key salespeople for their British wines including his namesake Ginger Wine. Joseph stone retired to Barnet where he died in 1896. He would, no doubt, be astonished to learn that over 110 years later, his name has become one of the best known in the drinks industry, not just in the UK, but all over the world.
