Squeezed and Pressed Juice
The summer of 1981 saw an endless supply of blackcurrants, father Anthony and son Michael decided it was time to put them to use, and set out to make their first non-alcoholic drink. Barker’s Blackcurrant, a pure and natural squeezed and pressed juice was a hit with adults and children nationwide.
“It’s the quality and superior flavour that comes from squeezing over 750 antioxidant rich, Canterbury blackcurrants, which has helped Barker’s become a family favourite and number one seller.”
