Kererū Birch Beer
New England Style Birch Beer is a classic New England style soda that is very similar to American Root Beer. This sweet fizzy soft drink is strongly flavoured with wintergreen and star anise, malt, and a variety of traditional sugars.
An American classic, this soda is inspired by the sharp and fragrant root-beers from New England. The Black Birch tree in America has a strong wintergreen aroma and flavour in its bark; this is methyl salicylate which is the active compound in wintergreen and aspirin. You'd need to drink about 120 bottles of Birch Beer to get the equivalant of 1 aspirin tablet.
