Fentimans Curiosity Cola is a fermented botanical carbonated cola soft drink with ginger and herbal extracts. “Ingredients: carbonated water, fermented ginger root extract (water, glucose syrup, ginger root, yeast), sugar, flavourings, colour: caramel (E150d), phosphoric acid (E338), caffeine.”
The brewing process used to make this drink gives it an alcohol content of up to 0.5%, so low that it is still considered a soft drink. Like other colas, Curiousity Cola is flavoured with catuaba extract so herefore contains catuabine alkaloids.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 29/04/2014
(sample best before 28-Jul-15) Clear, deep brown (virtually black and opaque in the glass) with plentiful large bubbles.
Cola with faint ginger and notes of liquorice, lemon zest and bark.
Drier and less syrupy than lesser colas with subtle herbal notes.
Lasting cola flavour with lingering barky dryness.
