The number of people opting for a non-alcoholic drink has grown massively in the last few years, fuelled by health scares and stricter drink driving laws. But the soft drinks or cordials on offer are pitifully few and often are over-sweetened fizzy drinks or just plain water, making a fun evening stretch into a long thirsty desert.
Not now – artisan liquid deli Demijohn has just launched six new handmade cordials that make being teetotal fun! Having tested the market (and promptly sold out) in November 2016, they launched at The Scottish Game Fair two weeks ago and have been hailed as totally amazing.
With six flavours – Nettle, Elderflower, Raspberry, Lemon & Mint, Rhubarb & Ginger and Lime & Chilli – they are so concentrated that you only need a small amount to dilute with sparkling or still water.
They are handmade by micro producer Charlotte Grant who is not only immensely passionate about making cordials but has a magical skill. Charlotte has been making amazing cordials from hedgerow ingredients gathered in and around her Suffolk home for a number of years. All the ingredients wherever possible are British grown or foraged from the hedgerows so supply is limited as many are seasonal (the elderflowers, for example, are only around for a few short weeks in June).
Are you tired of juice, soft drinks, ice tea or smoothies? Well then, you have to try these homemade cordials! These cute little bottles gives you a sparkling glimpse of 6 cool refreshing flavours which brightens your day. I tried the Lemon and Mint and once I had a sip, my mouth watered for more. All you need to do is to pour a small amount into a glass, dilute it with water/sparkly water/lemonade, and let the sensation run down your throat. Try these super healthy drinks as they are made from natural ingredients, very flavoursome and delicious!
