About Umbrella London

The brainchild of bartenders and bar owners, we founded Umbrella London as a way to make the things we want to drink, always in London and always with the best ingredients we can find.

Our Ginger Beer and Ciders combine contemporary ideas with traditional techniques which are steeped in history but far from Old Fashioned.
British Classics, Made in London.

As London’s only independent cider makers, we brews, press and blend on-site, sourcing ingredients from British growers and farmers. Launched in 2015,  our fiery alcoholic 5% Ginger Beer is made using only natural ingredients (hand pressed ginger; fresh squeezed lemon, cane sugar, malted barley, yeast and water) resulting in a unique ginger sediment at the bottom of the bottle which is activated when turned. Sessionable and versatile, our Ginger Beer has been formulated to be enjoyed both on its own, mixed with spirits and as a cocktail ingredient.

A recent rebrand saw Umbrella London shed our former ‘Brewing’ moniker upon the launch of our Sparkling Apple and Rhubarb Ciders, with more flavours imminent. Using Dabinett and Cox apples from British farmers, our sparkling apple cider is fresh, fruity, refreshing and light, available on draught and in cans alongside the latest addition to the Umbrella London line-up – a 4% clean and tart Rhubarb Cider made using dessert apples and fresh pressed rhubarb with a delicate fruity aroma and a pale rosé hue.

With a keen eye on design, our cans and bottles use clean, striking and daringly simple visuals which reflect the single flavour aspect of their products – black for ginger, yellow for apple and pink for rhubarb. As strong believers in the power of collaboration, we’ve worked on limited edition bottles for Girl Skateboards, Dewar’s Scotch Whisky and New York bar The Dead Rabbit, with a Teeling Whiskey partnership due for release later this year.
