Some history.

The RUBRO team are a bunch of South Africans passionate about their country’s rich heritage. Their refreshing drink celebrates the diverse floral kingdom of the Cederberg and surrounding mountains – the only place on earth where a herbal tea called Rooibos grows naturally. This tea is the cornerstone of their product. It was first used by the indigenous KhoiSan tribespeople as a remedy, but now the team at RUBRO are intent on sharing this rare and precious herb with the world. Their first (and flagship) customer, Nando’s launched RUBRO in 2012. Nando’s customers have been enjoying this delicious drink in all the restaurants in the UK and Ireland, and ask repeatedly to have it available elsewhere so they can stock up their fridges at home – enter Lighthouse Brands!
