Two new drinks from Lyre’s
Lyre’s are adding six new products to their already extensive range, including five ready-to-drink cans, and Pink London Spirit. If you’re a lover of pink gins then this one is for you. They recommend serving over ice with premium tonic water and garnishing with strawberries and mint. We’ll include one of our favourite tonic waters so you can mix your perfect pour. We will also be sampling their ready-to-drink Classico can. This is a sparkling wine-style drink with floral notes, lime acidity, and soft notes of peach, apple, and pear. Enjoy it chilled from the can, in your favourite wine glass, or even use it to create sparkling cocktails. Go to Lyre’s website and use code PINK20 for 20% off. The discount applies on all single Pink London Spirit 70cl bottles from 24th September to 31st October.
We’re huge fans of Lucky Saint and can’t wait to try their lager in can. Lucky Saint is a popular choice in some of the best restaurants in the country, this unfiltered lager is brewed with the greatest of respect for brewing heritage, using only water, yeast, malt, and hops. It boasts soft carbonation, a delicate biscuity malt base, and a citrusy hop character. Their cans will be particularly great for taking on the go, and we love that their strong design elements translate so well in this new format. To celebrate the festival and their new can, Lucky Saint has given us a discount for our lovely members and followers. Use MINDFULFEST20 for 20% off. The cans will be available to purchase from luckysaint.co, starting from £25 for a 12-pack.
Lindemans provide a lovely selection of alcohol-free wines, and this month we’ll be enjoying their Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of blackberry and spice lead to more of the same on the palate, as well as bright red fruit. It is well balanced with solid tannins and soft fruity sweetness. A great option if you’re going sober for October, you could even use this one to make wine-based cocktails.
We’re very excited to try Guinness 0.0. Guinness is the gateway to dark beer for many folk and using cold filtration technology they have managed to deliver the classic Guinness texture and flavour, with none of the alcohol. This boasts the velvety mouthfeel Guinness is renowned for, with rich coffee and chocolate notes and a sweet malt base.
