Sanctified by the blessed caraway seed, this traditional Germanic spiced organic kraut has a little bit of extra punch, helping you ward off the demons.
Sauerkraut with a traditional European sprinkling of caraway seeds for a bit of extra nuttiness.
They say caraway is also good for love potions. Either way, we know you’ll love crunching your way through this heavenly concoction, made from lovingly reared certified organic cabbages.
You can understand why St Augustine himself, and hosts of angels, could be so triumphant about this special brew
