Paper Boat’s Amrood / Chilli Guava Juice (Sample)

Paper boat does it again with a magical cocktail of guava juice infused with spices (chilli powder, grits, black pepper, aamchur, black pepper powder). Surprisingly the chilli isn’t overpowering and somehow they have managed to balance the sweet with the savoury. Another one to definitely try as it just works and works so well.

We’re confident you’ll love our brands, but we’ll give you the option to try a sample before you commit.

About Our Juice Partner

So Paper boat brings you fruit juices but not as you know them and dovetails so well with Asian Artisan Drinks motto ‘Be adventurous, be bold and you will find flavours that are often familiar, sometimes new but always distinct!’

The sub-continent is the land of spices and they love to use them not only in their food but also to flavour their drinks. These traditions have been passed down from generation to generation and variations exist across all South Asian countries according to the availability of local and seasonal fruits, spices and condiments.

As Paper boat say themselves ‘Any drink can be made to taste good. Or feel nutritious. But how many drinks tell a story? Because when companies get together and dole out a drink to the parched populace, its practicality. But when history and geography conspire to make a drink favoured through the ages, that’s destiny.

A culmination of efforts. Modified through trial and error. Perfected with every passing age. From a King’s royal cook to a soldier’s flask to a peace offering made by warring clans to a mother conjuring something special for her son’s return to a grand celebration of harvest. Everyone had something to contribute. And it is their additions (and subtractions) that ultimately made their way into food carts in village fairs.’

About The Spice Infused Juice

In Paper boats own unique descriptive way…….

Guavas have four times the Vitamin C that Oranges do. That means, they’re four times better at boosting immunity. Oranges might as well seek training under Guavas. And while they’re at it, they might as well also learn how to be excellent at balancing the body’s Sodium and Potassium levels, treating tummy and tooth problems, busting stress, being good for the eyes and great for the skin.

Guava has enough iron that it could go to the gym and take a selfie even before stretching exercises. And it’s not all brawn – it’s also good for blood circulation to the brain, and is quite literally food for thought.

Spices & Condiments:

Chilli powder,
Grits,
Black pepper,
Aamchur,
Black pepper powder

Spice Scale:

Top but another wonderful concoction. Not to be missed.

More About Paper Boat

We at Asian Artisan Drinks are delighted to partner with Hector Beverages Paper boat brand and it was interesting to uncover their backstory.

About Paper boat in their own unique way…..

History is basically a collective memory of a people. And we realise that history is a sum of parts. And some of those parts, are delicious. It all began when fours guys who are history buffs (and beverage buffs!) sat down to have lunch on a hot Indian summer. They would always share their lunch and one of them would always bring a flask of delicious homemade aam panna with him. Among the four of these history (and beverage!) enthusiasts, one comes from a far away land – A land of bald eagles, of bowls that are super and of cars that are Nas. He is quickly taken to the idea of commercialising this raw mango ale.

“I want to commercialise this raw mango ale”, says the man from the far away, hitherto unknown land. “Aye!” the remaining trio heartily agree. “Woof!” goes the company dog who the narrator of this tale forgot to mention until now. And thus began the journey of Paper Boat. A journey of going back in time and bringing to fore, liquid traditions. Drinks, that the many civilisations of this subcontinent inspired. Drinks, that are practical and delicious. Drinks, that are a product of generations of trial and error. Drinks, that are sadly being lost to the excesses of urban life.

We hoped that Paper Boat, much like the Tagore poem, would send these drinks, these culinary messages to those who have never tasted such concoctions. And of course to those, who long
for the days gone by. Of homemade Aamras, Jaljeera, Kokum, Aam panna, Kala Khatta and many other secret recipes.

Moral of the Story: If you could make people taste memories, you should.

 

Paper Boats
by Rabindranath Tagore

Day by day I float my paper boats
One by one, down the running stream.
In big black letters I write my name on them
And the name of the village where I live.
I hope that someone in some strange land
Will find them and know who I am.
I load my little boats
With shiuli flower from our garden
And hope that these blooms of the dawn
Will be carried safely to land in the night.
I launch my paper boats and look up into the sky
And see the little clouds setting thee white bulging sails.
I know not what playmate of mine in the sky
Sends them down the air to race with my boats!
When night comes I bury my face in my arms
And dream that my paper boats float on and on
Under the midnight stars.
The fairies of sleep are sailing in them,
And the lading ins their baskets full of dreams.
