There are so many wonderful uses for shrubs, which are traditional drinking vinegars. At Shivelight Premium Beverage Company we start with high quality raw, whole fruit. Then we add raw, unfiltered Montana knapweed honey. Rather than using old, bruised, bulk fruit at Shivelight we are committed to excellence, from start to finish, and that commitment is reflected in the specificity of our fruit..
After pressing the fruit and adding honey to make a syrup, we then add the unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Vinegar which has not been filtered still contains the pectin, plant proteins, enzymes and probiotics from fermentation. Together, the raw honey, the fresh fruit maceration, and the apple cider vinegar are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. Not only do we find the best ingredients for our shrub drinks, but we also do not interfere with the alchemy these ingredients have in their combination.
The only other ingredient in our shrub recipe is water for balance and versatility. We add no stabilizers or preservatives. All of our ingredients are not only the finest quality found locally, but they are also packed rich with nutritious material, making our shrub recipes both delicious and beneficial.
At Shivelight Premium Beverage Company, we start with two main commitments. Our first is to remain persistent in finding the highest quality ingredients available, and the second is to showcase the rich natural and agricultural heritage of Montana. In remaining focused on these two tenants, we have developed professional relationships with some of the finest growers of Montana.
