Full Description

Festivity in a bottle! Our Limited Edition Shrub offers autumnal pear that marries beautifully with clove. The turmeric brings sunshine and an earthy undertone. The combination is both spicy and warming.

Urban Pharm Shrubs are versatile. Start by adding a shrub splash to sparkling or still water. Make your morning apple cider vinegar dose something to savor rather than throw back. Add a sprig of rosemary to add some texture. Don’t look now, but you may have a festive mocktail or cocktail on your hands. Shrub up your next marinade or dressing. Play around to your liking.

Each small bottle has about 15 servings and each big bottle has about 25 servings, depending on how vinegar-forward you want to be.

We have adorable gift boxes for each size. Note that boxes are sent unassembled (so not recommended if you're sending directly to a gift recipient). You can add to your order at check out!

What’s in there and why it is “good for you”

Raw apple cider vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is a tried & true health aid. Thanks to acetic acid and loads of friendly bacteria, apple cider vinegar supports digestion, lowers blood sugar, and improves insulin sensitivity.

Raw honey: Honey is sweet and delicious, as well as rich in antioxidants. Although the body processes honey as it does cane sugar (raising blood sugar levels), the composition of honey actually improves blood sugar regulation.

Pear: Succulent and delicious, pears are high in fiber and vitamin C, as well as antioxidants. They are known to speed up the healing of colds and coughs.

Clove: Cloves have a subtly sweet flavor that is warming and aromatic. Loaded with antioxidants and manganese, cloves are good and good for you. They are also known to be a natural aphrodisiac.

Turmeric: Turmeric, notably its most active compound, curcumin, is scientifically proven to decrease inflammation in the body. This alone helps with a myriad of body issues, ranging from heart health to cancer to arthritis. This spice is a beautiful orange color with an earthy, musky, slightly peppery flavor.

Product FAQs

What is the shelf life?

The shelf life of Urban Pharm Shrub is 12 months, though in fact it is good for longer. After 12 months, the flavors might change and the colors will not be as vibrant.

How long will it last once open?

Urban Pharm shrubs are very stable thanks to that delicious apple cider vinegar. Before opening, they can live in your pantry for at least a year. We recommend refrigerating after opening and enjoying within a year for maximum flavor and color.

Does shrub need to be refrigerated?

Urban Pharm shrubs are shelf stable, which means they do not have to be refrigerated. We do recommend that they go in the fridge after opening to better preserve taste and color.

Does shrub contain alcohol?

No, Urban Pharm Shrub does not contain alcohol.

Does shrub contain sugar?

Yes, Urban Pharm Shrub does contain sugar in the form of raw organic honey. Honey is more nutritious and flavorful than cane sugar, as well as less processed. Our shrubs also contain fructose from the fruit.

Does shrub contain caffeine?

No, the ingredients in Urban Pharm shrubs are naturally caffeine-free.

What is the difference between shrub and kombucha?

Urban Pharm Shrub is a drinking vinegar. It is made by combining vinegar and honey with fruits and botanicals. The combination ferments for several days to a week. Shrubs are both tart and sweet. Kombucha is fermented tea. It is made by combining a black or green tea with cane sugar and a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast). The combination ferments for seven to 10 days. Kombucha is a fizzy caffeinated (and slightly alcoholic) beverage that can be flavored fruits and herbs for flavor.

What are the health benefits of apple cider vinegar?

Apple cider vinegar is a tried-&-true health aid. For thousands of years, it has been used in both the kitchen and the medicine cabinet. Benefits include:

● Digestion improvement (the acidity of the vinegar restores stomach acidity and helps with enzyme release, both of which promote healthy digestion)
● Blood sugar balance and weight loss promotion (courtesy of the acetic acid, created by the fermented sugar in the apples)
● Energy booster (due to its amino acid, potassium, and enzyme content, it acts as a natural electrolyte solution and curbs the buildup of lactic acid)
● Clears congestion (the potassium and acetic acid can thin mucus to help clear your sinuses)
