The original building of Fentimans is a listed building in Gateshead, Tyne & Wear. The Fentimans logo, which is built into the building, is based on Fearless, Thomas Fentiman’s prize German Shepherd Dog, twice winner of the Crufts Obedience Test.
Fentiman’s recently came under negative media coverage after the sale of its Victorian Lemonade was banned for minors in Houlton, Maine. The label on the beverage states that it contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume, below the limit legislated for soft drinks in the UK. This is similar to the amount of alcohol in Sprite and equal to the amount in 7-Up. Despite a minor needing to consume 200 ounces of the beverage to equal the intoxication level of one beer, the beverage was still banned for sale to minors in the city.
