About this item
Genuine Victorian Transfer Printed
C. Butcher ~ Chatham, England
This is a wonderful English Victorian stoneware bottle pot that once held Ginger Beer. The original recipe requires only ginger, sugar, water, lemon juice and a fungal-bacteria symbiote known as a ginger beer plant. Fermentation over a few days turns the mixture into ginger beer. Brewed ginger beer originated in Yorkshire in England in the mid-18th century.
6 3/4 inches tall x 2 3/4 inches wide
