Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Clarification regarding Fentimans' soft drinks.

Following communication forwarded by trusted well-wishers, Fentimans have clarified  that the trace alcohol is due to natural fermentation and not due to any added alcohol.

We therefore consider Fentimans soft drinks products to be Halaal.

 See below.
  
Alcohol once created cannot be totally destroyed - apparently no matter how much you attempt to "boil off" the residual alcohol (at most 0.5% (alcohol by volume) stubbornly remains. It is in recognition of this fact that our drinks are legally sold as Soft Drinks.
 
I must stress that the trace alcohol within our products has naturally occurred during the fermentation process during production and we do not add alcohol to the liquid.
 
Many products contain trace alcohol, including natural fruits, fruit juice, other soft drink brands, bread and even toothpaste.
 
Under the 1990 Low Alcohol Drinks Act, EU labelling regulations and because of the nature of the product, we are not obliged to print the alcohol content on our labels.
 
Most other carbonated soft drinks will contain trace alcohol due to the natural fermentation of sugars.
 
I hope this information is helpful to you but please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further information.
