Fentimans soft drink and mixers was created by Thomas Fentimans back in 1905. He started producing a botanical ginger beer after a friend apparently defaulted on a loan. It is interesting to note that his family dog "fearless" is still adorned on all Fentimans bottles. A testimony to the fact that Fentimans holds on to traditions and family values. Fentimans is still family owned by Thomas Fentimans’ grandson, Eldon.
