Wait, what? You’ve not signed up to our monthly subscription discovery box yet? There’s still time…and here’s a taste of what’s to come in July’s box of delights!
Our fantastic Discovery boxes were created in conjunction with Wise Bartender, meaning that you can have a box of interesting new low and no alcohol drinks delivered right to your door each month – all you have to do is pop them in the fridge! We even supply you with recipe ideas and online tastings to help you make the best of your new discoveries. This month, we’ll be tasting a variety of things, from new alcohol-free beers, the latest kombucha on the market, alternative options for a G&T-style long drink, and new wine alternatives for summer evenings. Join us for our live tasting, or catch up in your own time. Here is our tasting from last month with Laura. If you’re more of a wine alternative fan, we’ve just launched our Wine Club – you can sign up right here.
What’s in the July Discovery Box?
We’re excited to show you what’s in your summery drinks delivery! From Bee-inspired gin alternatives to some superb sparkling wine, and with a few new, refreshing alcohol-free beers to add to your collection, this month’s discovery box will have you sipping happily right the way through Dry July without any FOMO whatsoever. Here’s what you can expect from your July Discovery Box.
It seems apt that in the season where bees are at their busiest, making our gardens bloom and pollinating the food we need to survive, we appreciate the fruits of their labour with Keepr’s Ultra Low Alcohol offering. This gorgeous Gin and Tonic flavoured sparkling drink by British Honey Drinks Company Keepr’s (as in Bee Keepers…clever) is made with 100% honey from their own hives, mixed with juniper, citrus, and herbs to create a refreshing alternative that we’ve nicknamed the Bee & T.
Speaking of gorgeous gin alternatives, we’ve popped some cheeky little bottles of Stillers into your Discovery Box. We love the two distinctly different alcohol-free drinks created by master distiller David O’Brien and his team at Old Coach House Distillery. Whether you prefer the citrus twist of Celtic Myst or the beguiling spices of Silk Roots, these are two powerful plant essences combined with organic herbs and the finest Welsh spring water that will satisfy your need for a bold beverage.
Belle & Co
Formerly known as Bees Knees (do you see a theme emerging?), this medium-dry sparkling wine is made with green tea and fantastic flavourings to create a delicious demi-sec grown-up drink. This means it’s not too sweet like some other alcohol-free wine alternatives, making it very drinkable. It’s also gluten-free and only 65 calories per glass, so this beautiful bottle in your Discovery Box ticks all the right boxes.
Big Drop Poolside
This beer from popular alcohol-free brewing company Big Drop could not sound any more suitable for summer if it tried – even its bold and bright packaging looks summer-ready. This Double Dry Hopped delight is combined with the tropical twist of mango, pineapple, and citrus to provide your July Discovery Box with a heady mix of summer holiday nostalgia in a can.
We’ve chosen not one but two fruity, punchy beers for this month’s subscription box. Jump Ship brew their alcohol-free beer in small batches so that it’s naturally low in alcohol and keeps the full flavour of malted grains, hops, and yeast mixed with soft Scottish water. It was recently awarded Gold at the Scottish Beer Awards and we wanted to give you the opportunity to see why. This ethically-minded bunch also give at least 10% of their profits to charity, so you’ll have both a clear conscience and a clear head after a few of these cold ones.
Wanted to try Kombucha but never really known where to start? You’ve come to the right box. Kombucha is a type of fermented tea that contains beneficial organic compounds making it flavoursome and healthy. This sophisticated, pan-roasted green tea comes from the Longjing area of Zhejiang in China and is the perfect alternative to a dry white wine. It’s spritzy, summery, and perfect with salads, fruit, and white fish.
Even the tonic in your discovery box is good for you! No sugar to be found in TwelveBelow’s delicious range of tasty tonics; instead, these all natural bottles of fizz are sweetened with organic agave, so whether you’re a fan of the apple & garden mint, the pear & cardamom, the rhubarb & ginger, or you just want to add some classic premium tonic to your botanical beverage, you’re only adding 12 calories per serving.
In the UK, you can find many of these drinks to order online at Wise Bartender, some are also available at Amazon.
