The recipe used to make Stones is said to date from 1740 while the brand name dates from the mid-nineteenth century, when the wine was sold by Joseph Stone, a London grocer. Stone asked the Finsbury Distilling Company to make a ginger wine under his name.

Stone used the crest of the City of London on his label, perhaps to add sophistication, or possibly because his brother in law was the Lord Mayor of London.

Stone's is made from a combination of gingered and ungingered raisin bases.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 07/07/2012

Appearance:

Clear golden with a hint of apricot orange.

Aroma:

Vermouth-like oxidised wine with subtle candied ginger.

Taste:

Slightly sweet with pronounced fiery ginger root - much more powerful than the nose suggests. Subtle notes of green apple skin/cider while the sweetness appears honey-like rather than plain sugar.

Aftertaste:

Long fiery honeyed root ginger.
