Just made my first batch of #1 .... WOW!  your product is wonderful!  I became a fan of ginger beer in Bermuda and Pickett Brothers is every bit as good as any I have tasted ... Thank you for your product and all the best!

Just wanted to congratulate you guys on an amazing product. I found you about a year ago at Whole Foods Bowery in Manhattan New York, and I love the stuff. Just bought a two-pack of the hot & spicy version, looking forward to tasting that, as I really love that ginger zing.
 
Thanks so much for doing what you’re doing. I’ve not seen anything come even close.
 
With love,
-Calvin
 

5 stars - Delicious!

I love this stuff! So versatile - great for tea, hot wing sauce, salad dressing ingredient and what it's supposed to be used for - ginger beer. You can even mix that up a bit, too -- I use flavored La Croix soda water (lime, lemon, grapefruit) and that's great too. They label this medium spicy - I'd love to see a spicier version.
The great thing about this syrup is that you can make your ginger beer as sweet or as dry as you'd like. I bought this originally as a one-time purchase, but next time I'll be a subscribed purchaser. It's a must have for me.  -- Amazon.com customer

"Just gave the Pickett's Ginger Beer mixture a try, great stuff (mixed it with my isi seltzer water)I was reading on the label it makes 12 12 oz bottles, I believe that it could easily make 24. Will be placing another order soon for more. You have a great product on your hands."  - Premiermixers.com Customer

This review is from: Pickett's #1 Ginger Beer (Misc.)      
Pickett's makes a really solid, tasty ginger beer. The medium is decently spicy, the spicy is quite spicy. It's spicier and less sweet than, say, Bundaberg's, more like a Cock & Bull in my opinion, and makes a nice drink, with or without booze. I guess it could be sweet if you use more syrup, but I try to be moderate. It's less delicate in flavor than Fever Tree. Good with sparkling water and some lime juice. It mixes fine with a fruit-flavored syrup, like mango. I also throw it in recipes calling for ginger, like soups or sautees.

Using this with a soda stream and it works great. The syrup is delicious - spicy and powerful.  One of the best I've ever tried.

This review is from: 2 Pack: Pickett's #1 Ginger Beer (Misc.)      
I am a lover of "all things ginger" and was first given a bottle of this as a gift.  I drink a lot of tea and would add powdered ginger to it, but this product is so much easier to use (2 teas/cup) and takes the place of the sugar & powdered ginger I previously used.  Haven't tried making the ginger ale that is illustrated on the label.

Pickett's #3 Hot N' Spicy Ginger Beer Syrup is a delicious combination of spicy and sweet. The only con is that they don't sell 5 gallon buckets of this stuff. 5 Stars.

I liked the ginger beer syrup enough to get some more. You actually get quite a bit ginger beer if you actually mix it correctly.

Website REVIEWS for #1 MEDIUM SPICY

Refreshing

Posted by Unknown on 22nd Jun 2014

Mix with cold seltzer for a ginger beverage just the way you like it.


  • This is the real thing!

    Posted by Nancy Heard on 6th Apr 2014

    If you like ginger, this product leads you to experimenting with food and drink!  I have made a marinade for tuna with it, and a fantastic deadly mule, just to name a few.  You should always have some around--it's a kitchen staple!


  • Super

    Posted by Scott on 7th Jan 2014

    Great spicy aroma which makes a wonderful cocktail.  Thanks for bringing it to Manhattan.

 

Website REVIEWS for #3 HOT N' SPICY

Perfect for Moscow Mules

Posted by Justin on 4th Jun 2014

In a copper cup, I use about 1/2 oz. of this syrup, 2 oz. vodka, 1/2 oz. lime juice, and then top it off with club soda. It's the best.


  • Try it, you won't be disappointed!

    Posted by Unknown on 5th May 2014

    This ginger beer syrup is excellent, and is made with cane sugar - a big plus!  It has quite a bite, so if you like spicy ginger beer this is highly recommended. I try every brand of ginger beer that I can get my hands on, but now I keep my fridge and pantry stocked with Pickett's syrup.


  • Bite!!

    Posted by KimiK on 29th Apr 2014

    WOW!!  This makes a ginger beer with BITE!  If you love ginger, you know how satisfying & exciting it is to find a drink with that natural spicy bite to it!  This is deliciously unique and refreshing!!


  • Great Gimger Beer Flavor!!!!

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Apr 2014

    I LOVE THIS SYRUP!!!!!

 

  • just can't get enough... so we did!

           I and my friends love this stuff so much,,, we just can't get enough,,, so we got 5 gallons!

It's spicier and less sweet than, say, Bundaberg's, more like a Cock & Bull in my opinion, and makes a nice drink, with or without booze. Good with sparlking water and some lime juice.

  • Two great products

    Posted by Mark N. on 9th Apr 2014

    The No1 concentrate makes a ginger beer on par with the Ginger People beer at a lower cost.  Very nice clear ginger taste and not too sweet.  Because its a concentrate you can mess with the strength to suit yourself.
    The No3 concentrate is great for those who like a very spicy drink.  It needs a light hand as its easy to get too much of a goo thing.
    The fact that both are concentrates is an advantage in that they can easily be used in marinades and glazes.  No3 is particularly good in spicy oriental chicken dishes as a glaze.  No1 works better with milder dishes particularly with beef or pork.
