Posh Pop Idol: Breckland Orchard

Breckland Orchard produce sparkling soft drinks which they call 'Posh Pop', making products in small batches, with fabulous flavour combinations, spring water, and plenty of passion.

Claire Martinsen founded the company in Spring 2009, after leaving a corporate job in London. She had the job perhaps everyone dreams of – in a Chocolate factory! But with two small children (aged one and three) the daily three hour commute to London was unsustainable. The long travel and 5am starts forced her to
re-appraise. It was time to follow her dream and passion, and to start up on her own. So she swapped the world of big business for something closer to home.

The drinks were inspired by those that her grandmother made her when she was a child. She describes her Grandmother’s 'Lemonade' as having been legendary and everyone just loved it!

Claire is passionate about creating great tasting drinks - which she calls 'Posh Pop'. The range of six carbonated soft drinks including Cloudy Lemonade, Ginger Beer with Chilli, Blackcurrant & Raspberry, Cranberry & Rosehip, and Pear & Elderflower (seasonal flavours such as Sloe Lemonade and Dandelion & Burdock have made an appearance) are made with spring water as a base, wonderful flavour combinations and a little sparkle.They contain no artificial colourings, flavourings or sweeteners.

Award winning Ginger Beer with Chilli has a wonderful rounded taste, it won’t blow you head off, but it will leave you with a lovely tingle at the back of your throat. It’s certainly a Ginger Beer to remember.
