Jabin Beverage Company– We will not be at market! Jabin is my family’s twist on an ancient Persian beverage recipe. It is an apple cider vinegar based beverage without the harsh tastes of ACV and added benefits of herbs and cucumber. This is achieved by a meticulous yet time-consuming infusion process that allows the ingredients to combine and form a refreshing and hydrating beverage. We are excited to have this refreshing drink at the South Durham farmer’s market and share a piece of culture and health with all the amazing people here in the triangle. For questions or pre-orders, message us directly on instagram @jabinbev.co.
