Martin Frobisher sailed the 16th-century seas, discovering remarkable fruits which he bashed and bottled, to embolden his crew. Rum became redundant, scurvy scarpered - and England was enriched by his formidable fruitage when he returned with his fruit treasures for all to enjoy.*

The bold new look celebrates and captures the spirit of Frobisher's fantastical, lively character. Frobisher's fresh, premium juices, cordials, smoothies and more - made using the recipes our consumers have known and loved for 20 years - are now a whole lot more handsome, with a spirited feel that makes them a real party piece.

Gone are the days of soft drinks being the soft option: Frobisher's are responding to the fact that more people are living cleaner, healthier lives and toughening up the category for those who like their courage without the Dutch. When you choose a non-alcoholic drink it deserves to be as sophisticated and exciting as an alcoholic drink, served with as much flair as a cocktail and offering as many flavour notes as a fine wine list.

Frobisher's are for people who want to plough their own furrow, discover something wonderful and explore the full-on flavour of real fresh fruit - no artificial scallywags in here. The range offers full on sophisticated flavour notes for those who question what to drink when not drinking.

So, welcome aboard Curious Cordials, an unapologetic range of fruity mixers which will delight the palette every time.

These 'Great Taste Award' winning (2018) cordials are available in three enticing flavours inspired by adventure and travel. They can be enjoyed with still or sparkling water, added to a delicious mocktail, or poured lavishly into prosecco and cocktails for a delicious fruity twist on a slightly harder tipple.

Jessica Waller, head of brand at Martin Frobisher's, said, "Cordials are a sophisticated alcohol-free drink that you'll be proud to turn up to a party with! Solving the problem of what to drink when not drinking, our cordials are made without artificial ingredients and are served in clinkable, environmentally friendly glass bottles. This hard-hitting soft drink is the ideal party piece."
