Papas Mineral Company is a small local manufacturer of speciality drinks and cordials based in Bangor, County Down. It came about in 1999 due to a demand for high quality drinks and cordials free from artificial flavours, colours and sweeteners. Ever since, Papas has become one of the market leaders in Northern Ireland. Customers say these nostalgic drinks remind them of their childhood.
Each flavour is blended by hand, and each bottle filled and finished by hand.
The ever popular non-alcoholic ginger wine is made from a 100 year old recipe. It packs a mighty kick when paired with whiskey to make a “whiskey mac”, but it’s equally good mixed with soda water.
The spiced winterberry cordial is lovely with hot water in the colder months. Add it to red wine for an instant mulled wine, without the faff. The light and summery elderflower cordial is a winner with Prosecco and the newest concoction, Clove Cordial, is already a firm favourite.
