Wholesale Indigenous Cordials
Currong Comestibles’ Shrub is a novel way to introduce your tastebuds to the intriguing flavours of Australian Indigenous ingredients. A vinegar-based cordial, a shrub or switchel is a refreshing, non-alcoholic drink. Currong’s Rainforest Lime and Riberry Shrubs are ideal for adding flavour to cocktails, mocktails and punches. They also work beautifully with savoury dishes. The flavour is sophisticated yet ‘approachable’. With their apple cider vinegar bases, each variant complements the native fruit’s natural flavour, providing a complexity that’s unique and familiar, and completely unexpected in a drink.

The word ‘shrub’ is derived from the Persian (sharāb, ‘wine’) and Arabic word sharāb meaning ‘to drink’. The same words also delivered the English words, syrup and sherbet.
Currong Comestibles’ Shrubs are multi-award winners for their innovation, flavour and quality. They combine an 18th century American recipe with 20,000-year-old native Australian ingredients to create a spectacular 21st century product.
