About Brooklyn Brewed Sorrel Non-alcoholic New York USA Drink

Our sorrel is made with raw and natural ingredients: sorrel flower (also known as hibiscus roselle), ginger, pure cane sugar, cloves, cinnamon, allspice, bay leaves, and orange peel.

Brooklyn Brewed Sorrel will take you on a surprising taste journey with its rich, smooth, sweet, spicy, full-bodied, complex and refreshing taste. Best of all it is NonAlcoholic, is rich in antioxidants and works great solo or as a mixer.

With its roots in West Africa, Caribbean sorrel is one of the most beloved drinks of the Islands. As a 1st generation Caribbean-American born and raised in East Flatbush, Brooklyn New York, affectionately known as Little West Indies, I grew up enjoying sorrel year round, and most of all my fathers sorrel which became well-known and in demand in the community.

In 2015 I began creating my dad's sorrel which he hadn't produced in 10 years, bottled it and brought it to a few parties, and after many requests to sell it, business was born. Brooklyn Brewed Sorrel is carrying the tradition of delicious naturally good festive Caribbean drinks forward by creating authentic Sorrel, mocktail style.


Brooklyn Brewed Sorrel is loved by Beyoncé, Bon Appetit magazine, Epicurious, James Beard Foundation and countless fans.
