Ginger Beer

Hi Guys

I am making a ginger beer this evening. I was wondering if it would be possible to add a concentrated ginger beer mix to the batch.
I want to add the ginger beer drink o pop concentrate to really boost the ginger taste and this concentrate has a really strong burn which I want.
Would I add this before fermentation or after, just before bottling?
It has non-nutritive sweeteners so I am presuming there is nothing to ferment out of it.
Is there anything else I could be worried about from the ingredients?
They are as follows: Water, Citric Acid, flavourant, Non-nutritive sweeteners(Sodium Cyclamate, Sodium Saccharin), Sodium Citrate, Sodium Benzoate(preservative), colourants (including tartrazine).
The concentration will look like the image below just obviously not orange flavour.

Thanks for the help! :)
