Slange Var is an old Gaelic term meaning ‘cheers, to your good health’. It sounds like the perfect toast for Christmas morning or New Year’s Eve. This drink is made using lime, ginger, and honey. This makes for a very grown-up drinking experience, something to sip over time. You could enjoy this hot or cold, neat, or with a little sparkling water or alcohol-free fizz. Acidity from the lime is clean but mellow, and there is a subtle heat from the ginger. The honey comes from Scottish bees, and Slange Var founder Sarah is very committed to environmental causes. The brand sponsor beehives, help to conserve forest lands, and even plant wildflower seeds with their customers to help bees thrive in the Scottish countryside. Buy it directly from them, or from Yumbles.
Nirvana Brewery London Porter
Nirvana Brewery makes a whole host of beer styles, so you’re bound to find one that’s just what you’re looking for. Their London Porter makes an excellent addition to our Christmas Discovery Box. It’s perfect for this wintry weather. Expect roasted dark malt with hints of chocolate and coffee. This has a lasting dry and bitter finish, exactly what you want from a London Porter. Get it from their webshop, Wise Bartender, and a number of independent retailers.
PURA Soda Cranberry
Environmentally conscious brand PURA Soda makes a number of flavoured sodas. They are low in sugar, use only natural flavours, and don’t use any colourants. This soda is delicate in flavour, with pleasantly balanced sweet and tannic characters. This would be a fantastic low-calorie option during the day, or you could mix it to create exciting cocktails for the evening. Check out this Cosmopolitan recipe on their website, why not try it with your favourite alcohol-free spirit?
Sea Arch Rose Sea & T
Rose Sea & T is a double measure of the Sea Arch Coastal Juniper spirit blended with a lightly sparkling rose and raspberry infused low-calorie tonic. We recommend serving in a large glass over ice garnished with raspberries. Sea Arch Coastal Juniper spirit is made using traditional distillation techniques. At the first sip, aromatic juniper and bitter grapefruit give a clean, crisp taste. Then comes the sweetness and spice of blood orange and coriander. Distinctively fresh coastal notes and Devon character are distilled from the wild seaside herbs of sugar kelp and samphire, and cardamom ensures a balanced, warm finish. This ready-to-drink can is low in calories, free from sweeteners, and made with all-natural ingredients. Grab it from their website, or from Wise Bartender.
Wild Life Botanicals
We have a single-serve bottle from Wild Life Botanicals in our Christmas Discovery Box. Wild Life Botanicals is a unique English bubby from Cornwall. It’s infused with vitamins, minerals, and botanicals, each chosen for their unique health-supporting qualities. The Wild Life Botanicals Nude elicits vivid green hints, followed by a generous perfume evoking seasonal gooseberry, greengage, and young banana. On the palate are delicate bubbles encapsulating the freshness and zing of lime and mango. Find it on their webshop, or Wise Bartender.
Caleño was born when founder Ellie was on a sober night out and found herself frustrated with the options available to non-drinkers. She took inspiration from her Latin roots, and Caleño was born. We will be trying a sample of Dark & Spicy, a rich blend of pineapple, coconut, ginger, black cardamom, vanilla, kola nut & lime. We’re including a mixer from Double Dutch to play with, but you might like to grab your favourite ginger beer to try with this as well. You can buy Caleño from their website, Wise Bartender, Sainsburys.
