What's a Shrub?
Siren Shrubs are a concentrate best served as an accompaniment to sparkling water, splashed into your favorite cocktail or mocktail, simply added to water, or poured and sipped over ice. The best part, shrubs are suitable for all ages. Siren Shrubs highlight the essence of fruits and herbs picked at the peak of the season. They are combined with organic cane sugar or maple syrup and organic apple cider vinegar to create a shrub.
At least one Wisconsin ingredient is found in every shrub. By collaborating with other local farms in the Stevens Point Area such as Tapped Maple Syrup and Whitefeather Organics that provide fresh basil, Siren Shrub is able to perfect every recipe. To commemorate their emphasis on collaboration with Wisconsin farms, Siren Shrubs won the “Innovative Local Sourcing” award at Feast Local Foods Marketplace in Minnesota in 2019!
