Hollows & Fentimans
The Hollows story is one that is rooted in heritage and tradition. In 1906, Thomas Fentiman gave away the hand of his eldest daughter, Maria, to John Hollows with a rather unique gift; his secret family recipe for botanically brewed ginger beer. Following the gift that was a recipe for success, John Hollows proceeded to manage one of the Fentimans family factories, and continued to produce the much-loved Fentimans beverages. Bottled up in large hand made stone jars known as 'Grey Hens' and in signature blue topped jars, Hollows managed door to door delivery to local customers, and began to make his mark on the Fentimans dynasty. Hollows & Fentimans then traded until 1927 when the company became Hollows and Co.
