Mother Root

Mother Root makes apple cider vinegar (ACV)-activated non-alcoholic aperitifs. Founded in 2018 by Bethan Higson, who has a decade of experience in the wine and luxury spirits industry, the London brand was inspired by her discovery of switchels—apple cider vinegar drinks—during her pregnancy. Over two years, Bethan crafted each flavour using winemaking techniques to replicate the depth and complexity she missed from alcoholic beverages. The company has won Great Taste awards and has landing listings with retailers and restaurants including Selfridges and London’s St John, as well as selling online via their website, and Amazon.
