a story of passion
6 year old addicted to gifts but also the sweet and spicy ginger lemonade , brewed by aunt from Suriname , for the annual family celebration.
A taste sensation that you will never let go of.
The passion for ginger continues to evolve into creating surprising flavors from pure and natural ingredients .
Hobby cook, self-taught, food nerd. Many spices and flavours settle in my culinary memory. Only for family, friends, charity. Reaching a wider audience is a distant dream.
The homemade ginger lemonade, meanwhile, continues to be a hit.
Legendary roots trip to homeland Suriname , with my 2 brothers, Jeremy and Raf. On the banks of the Suriname River we talk about life, happiness, setbacks, about dreams and what you do with them. “You have to dare to jump at least once in your life” This trip was a life-changer. And at the base of this DZJING adventure .
The atmospheric photos on our site are from Raf, taken during our root strip.
I used my first ginger experience, the Surinamese ginger lemonade , as a basis to give it more depth through a subtle mixture of spices.
Less sweet, more balanced . Lime instead of lemon. Reworked as a concentrate so that you can dose yourself and flavour your mocktails , cocktails or other dishes with it. Many taste, approve, the taste evolves into what it is today.
A confluence of circumstances including the covid crisis, professional insecurities and personal circumstances were additional triggers to turn this drink into a project. DZJING had to be tasty , honest , pure , surprising , accessible . With the fantastic ginger in a certain leading role. DZJING gives back. Give Back is in the DZJING DNA.
A DZJING team is formed and the DZJING Classic is launched in July.
