Frequently asked questions
WHAT is the story behind GIMBER?
All good stories start… in a garage! Our GIMBER story started out exactly that way, in the garage of our own Willy Wonka, Dimitri. After hitting a rough patch in his life, he decided to invest his last bit of money in a ginger press juicer, from which he produced the first 25 bottles. And the rest is history...
WHAT does GIMBER mean?
GIMBER obviously refers to our main ingredient. Our founder, Dimitri, speaks Dutch, French and English at home. So, put together “gember”, “gingembre” and “ginger” in a blender and out comes GIMBER! IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT!
WHAT are the ingredients?
GIMBER N°1 The Original is made of organic and high-quality ginger, lemons, cane sugar, herbs and spices, creating a powerful and tasteful drink. GIMBER N°2 BRUT is made of 41% ginger*, water, lemon*, cane sugar*, herbs*, yuzu* (*organic origin), creating a ginger concentrate with 50% less sugar. The exact recipe is a top secret that our founder only shares with his mother and twelve-year-old son.
What are the healthy virtues of ginger
Ginger may have a beneficial effect on your body, in particular thanks to the active compounds found in it.
Ginger contributes to:
- Digestive health
- Natural defences and immune system
- Mobility of joints
- Vitality and energy
- Cardio vascular health
- Respiratory health
- Blood sugar level
WHAT is yuzu, used in GIMBER N°2 BRUT?
Yuzu is a superfruit but also, it is THE flavour of the year. Yuzu owes its rising fame to its crazy amounts of vitamin C and antioxidants. Sweet, flowery and tart, it’s become the go-to ingredient for all taste diggers, chefs and mixologists, mesmerized by its subtle wood and coconut notes.
WHAT is the sediment in my bottle?
The sediment is what gives POWER to your GIMBER! It's ginger residue AND the proof that our product is 100% organic! No preservatives or flavour enhancers are used. We made the choice not to use emulsifiers nor filter the product. NO BULLSHIT, WE GO PURE! This also means that with every production, the sediment may look a bit different. All you have to do is shake it, shake it, shake it (like a polaroid picture)!
WHAT will happen when I freeze my GIMBER?
You can create delicious ice cubes! Add a little bit of water to make sure they turn out just right. TASTE BOMB! Find out the whole recipe here.
WHAT is ‘gingerol’ and WHAT does it do?
Gingerol is one of the most important components of ginger. It's what gives it its kick!
WHAT should I do with my empty bottle?
Glass can be recycled endlessly. So be sure to bring your empty bottle to your nearest recycling point. Or, you can get creative and re-use it as a vase, water bottle or even as a tool for workouts. Think outside the box!
WHO can drink GIMBER?
KIDS? For sure! The more different flavours they get to know, the better, right?
PREGNANT WOMEN? Of course! However, like with everything during a pregnancy: with moderation. And when in doubt, consult your doctor/GP.
DIABETICS? GIMBER contains 33 g of sugar per 100 ml. When you dilute your GIMBER shot with water, you’ll then get 3,3 g of sugar in one glass. As such, most diabetics will have no problems with drinking GIMBER, but depending on the type of diabetes you have, you might want to consult your doctor/GP if you’re hesitant.
CARDIAC PATIENTS Ginger has a 'blood thinning' effect. It’s advised to consume GIMBER in moderation if you're already taking blood thinning medication as it will reinforce the effect of the medicine. So be sure to consult a doctor/GP in advance.
PEOPLE WITH OTHER HEALTH ISSUES? Yes, but like with everything: in moderation. And again: when in doubt, consult a doctor!
WHO will like GIMBER?
GIMBER is a delicious ginger concentrate, made from carefully selected high-quality ginger. Do you like to spoil your taste buds? Then you’ll enjoy drinking GIMBER without a doubt!
WHY the name GIMBER N°2 BRUT?
Our BRUT refers to the natural state of an alcohol-free ginger concentrate that features everything you already love about GIMBER Original, low in sugar. With this newcomer, we are happy to please those who roll lower-sugar style.
WHY that price though?
GIMBER is actually not that expensive when you think about it. It’s a concentrate that you dilute, so you can actually get a total of 25 glasses of a ‘GIMBER perfect serve’ out of one 700ml bottle. Say what now!
With GIMBER, you don’t pay for water, but for a concentrate filled with high-quality organic ginger, lemon and fresh herbs! We want to offer you quality and that’s never going to change. Moreover, the ingredients are cultivated in an organic way and in a fair working environment.
WHY does my GIMBER have a different colour than last time?
Knowing we work with pure, organic products and no additives, the colour and sediment can vary according to the harvest and the field where the ginger was cultivated.
WHY does GIMBER give me a boost?
GIMBER can sometimes give you a much-needed boost. There’s absolutely no caffeine in our GIMBER, only lots of POWER due to the large amount of high-quality ginger!
We use natural cane sugar to balance out the spiciness of the ginger. When you dilute your GIMBER with 1/10 water (3cl), you'll have 9,9 grams of sugar, which is less than in milk and 2 to 3 times less than in apple juice.
WHEN was GIMBER established?
GIMBER was first produced in 2017, after our founder Dimitri hit a low physically, mentally and financially. He decided to invest his last euros in a ginger press juicer and made 25 bottles. The rest is history!

Will I destroy the vitamins WHEN I add boiling water?

WHERE did the idea for GIMBER originate?
Dimitri, a person with a big zest for life, always had a busy social calendar, which most often included having drinks. He was fed up with alcoholic, boring or sugary drinks. That's why he started looking for a drink that would satisfy and surprise his taste buds, without making his head spin the day after. Because he didn't find one, he created it himself. He tried many different combinations and ingredients. And then one day, in November 2017, everything came together, and he found the absolute perfect mix. TASTY!
WHERE is GIMBER produced?
According to the legend, GIMBER is created in the stomach of a 100-year-old dragon. He guards the secret recipe with his life and makes sure there’s enough spice in the concentrate. Fortunately, our founder was able to tame that dragon!

HOW much GIMBER can I drink daily?
