It was the year 2015. Our company founder Mario had just returned from a mountain bike trip in Austria when his wife Vera presented him with a farmer’s market souvenir in a shot glass. He waved it away. Alcohol is not really the answer, even after exercise. Vera insisted that he should try it. Which he did, reluctantly. With each sip, his eyes grew wider. And then he suddenly broke into a smile: “Wow, this is really damn tasty. Everyone needs to know about this.”
OUR HEART: THE OLD MONASTERY RECIPE
It’s true that we are picky about it, and have to set the record straight:
Our products are not based on some ginger mix recipe, but on an old recipe handed down from a monastery kitchen. This one came from said farmer’s market and simply had to be introduced to the world.
The difference is simple: While other producers mainly combine some kind of juice with a bit of ginger concentrate, we add real pieces of ginger to our shots. These not only make for an exceptionally delicious taste, but also for a tangible drinking sensation.
AN ING INVENTION
Driven by the power of ginger and like a cross between Daniel Düsentrieb and Thomas Edison, Mario fiddled around for a very long time until he developed a suitable production process. This allows us to produce more of our delicious drink without sacrificing the all-important gentle processing and fine cut of the ginger. Today, we produce at two locations in Germany and Austria and have already distributed over 35 million servings of our unique ginger shot to the world.
Why it is so important to cut ginger as finely as possible and more facts about ginger can be found under Ginger Know-How.
ORGANIC AND VEGAN FOR PURE NATURE
While we want to introduce our products to as many people as possible, one thing was clear from the start: a natural product like this needs the best ingredients. And because Mario can’t grow everything in his own garden, we source our products from selected organic suppliers. What is more, you won’t find any preservatives or artificial ingredients in our products.
SO COOL AND YET UNCOOLED
Our manufacturing process makes it possible for our products to remain unrefrigerated until they are opened. This way we do not need to use refrigeration to ship them and can reduce our carbon footprint. Once opened, however, you should store the product in the fridge. We prefer to drink the shots nice and cold anyway.
A CATEGORY OF ITS OWN
Time and again, many supermarket managers scratch their heads and wonder: A ginger shot with real ginger pieces? Should I put it next to the fresh ginger in the vegetable section? Or with the juices? Or with the smoothies in the refrigerated section, although I don’t need to refrigerate it? The answer is simply: Yes. All of it works.
But because we can’t be in every section at the same time, you might need to search for us a little bit. Our tip: Simply order online with free shipping here and let DHL find you instead of spending a long time looking for Kloster Kitchen yourself.
But if you prefer to buy our products in the supermarket, you prepared an overview of where we are stocked. For any other questions, please feel free to drop us a line via our contact form or our social media channels. Looking forward to hearing from you.
