The legend of Ginger Joe is inspired by ‘Ginger’ Joseph Stone, moustachioed London greengrocer and illustrious founder of the noble house of Stone. Legend says Joe was fanatical about the tantalising taste of the ginger root and that his first ‘dip in the ginge’ circa 1740 produced a tipple that literally singed the tips of his ‘tache – an image now immortalised on every bottle of this refreshingly feisty alcoholic ginger beer. From the same house that produces the world-famed Stone’s Ginger Wine and the original secret recipe for the Ginger Wine adds inspiration to every bottle of Ginger Joe. The origins of Stone’s Original Ginger Wine date back to 1740 and the foundation of a company called The Finsbury Distilling Company in the City of London. They, like many of their counterparts, needed to build a retail network to sell their wares. These included Joseph Stone, grocer of High Holborn. An extremely important customer of the distillers, his name was given to their Ginger Wine. Made then, as it still is today from the finest quality wine grapes and pure fresh ginger, Stone’s Original Green Ginger Wine quickly became the flagship of the Finsbury Distilling Company’s British wines division. In 1832, amid the cholera epidemic, sales were boosted by the widely held belief that ginger offered protection against the disease. Ginger’s medicinal properties – it has also been hailed as an aid to digestion and as an effective aphrodisiac – undoubtedly contributed to the everlasting popularity (and cult like following) of Stone’s Original Green Ginger Wine. Ginger Joe is now the next generation drink for the famous House of Stone.
