OUR MISSION

Our mission is a simple one… recreate that old Hawker spirit to bring a little social good as well as drinking pleasure.

Hawkes was inspired by London’s original working class heroes, and true entrepreneurs, The Street Hawkers - so much so we even named ourselves after them.

We feel the Hawker street spirit is inside all of us, the spirit that inspired the Hawkers, striving for a new and better way for themselves and their communities, to climb from the bottom of the ladder and keep moving up. At Hawkes we aim to echo that journey… and thanks to you, we’ve got off to a pretty good start.

Every bottle we make is filled with heart and soul, and every drop delivers something we all strive for - something real, something better.

OUR STORY
OUR STORY

OUR STORY

It all started on a long hot day in the summer of 2012 in a small kitchen in East London, with a saucepan of ginger, some green bottles and a lot of hope.
We set out to give people what we knew they wanted; an authentic and real company, one prepared to craft liquids superior in ingredients, taste and flavor, fighting against the bland, the faceless and the corporate. And we set out to do it our own way, with values and purpose being as important as what we produce.
From that moment on a seed was sown, and we embarked on a mission to change the face of the drinks industry forever.

From street festivals, to friend’s bars, to fetes and beyond, we took our ginger beer to them all, we improved our recipe with every batch until we created the best authentic ginger beer around. It wasn’t easy, and it took a lot of hard work and dedication, but finally we got it right and Hawkes was born.

We haven’t stopped learning and evolving though.

After a year of learning, picking and blending, 2014 saw us spearhead our purpose and passion toward the craft cider revolution to become one of London’s first cider makers. Urban Orchard is a cider that we’re very proud of and truly encapsulates the Hawker ethos.

We might still be a small outfit but, like our ingredients, we’ve taken root and are growing all the time.

Our journey proves that if you want something enough, if you have a true purpose, with hard work, dedication and passion, anything is possible.

We want to make a difference, have fun along the way and we want to take you along with us. We hope you enjoy the ride…

URBAN ORCHARD

Apple Cider

Available in 330ml bottle & keg

When it comes to cider, there’s no doubt that we’re a new breed of urban cider maker and our approach is simple… we’re putting real apples back in to cider.

We started by kicking out all the artificial stuff to produce only the real thing.

What we do at Hawkes is unique; we’re blending country apples with hand picked urban apples, provided by the community.

Why?

To us, the urban apple and orchard are the perfect representation of the Hawkes ethos. They show that against all the odds, in the most unlikely of environments, a fruit-bearing tree can be born, survive and flourish.

At Hawkes we are proud to celebrate this remarkable fruit to create a cider & business that is making a difference, one apple, one orchard and one community at a time.

 

TASTING NOTES

4.5% ABV – Medium Dry

Crafted using champagne yeast with traditional culinary and handpicked urban apples, this London blend is inspired by the apple varieties once grown, picked and sold on the streets of Victorian London by the apple selling Hawker knows as ‘the Coster-monger’ (apple-seller).

The end result is a beautiful medium dry cider, smooth and harmonious in body, complex and rich in texture with a crisp wine-like finish.

Apples used: Bramley, Braeburn, Cox, Jonagold, Ida Red, Gala, Golden Delicious and various unknown varieties (the magic)

Alcoholic Ginger Beer

Available in 500ml bottle

The original ginger beer and where it all started, from our kitchen to your kingdom! Sick of ginger beers that made us feel like we were licking a sugar cube with a sickly synthetic taste, we set out to make a ginger beer that was refreshing, delicious and made from the real stuff.

Not only can you enjoy our ginger beer on it’s own but we know, through hours of experimentation, that it’s the perfect companion to a whole host of other spirits and flavours - to create mouthwateringly refreshing cocktails head to our cocktail section for some of our recommendations.

TASTING NOTES

Our ginger beer is made from a unique blend of the best natural ingredients; ginger, mandarin and kiwi, creating a smooth and fruity finish with the perfect ginger bite.

GIVING BACK

GIVING BACK

By now you will have learnt that at Hawkes we like to do things differently. But being a true Hawker is not just about words; it’s about action, people and community.

This is only the start of our journey but from day one we set out to have a clear purpose: to make a difference in every way we can. A chance encounter with a young homeless woman on the streets of London in 2011 gave us the inspiration we needed to build something with purpose and cause at it’s centre. It can’t only be about us. From that moment on we promised to use the success of Hawkes to give something back and help the people around us.

As we grow, we aim to share our profits to urban community groups and projects that improve the world around us.
