An American classic, this soda is inspired by the sharp and fragrant root-beers from New England. The Black Birch tree in America has a strong wintergreen aroma and flavour in its bark - this is methyl salicylate which is the active compound in wintergreen and asprin. You'd need to drink about 120 bottles of Birch Beer to get the equivelant of 1 asprin tablet.
