Mixed by Mother Nature
Founder , Claire Oxley, grew up in Yorkshire. Growing up in Yorkshire she loved the smell of her Grandas Cyrils tomatoes & also loved reading garden gang books! She then recently started a food and drinks company with a friend where they learnt all about mixers, flavours & mixing! With that in mind being so passionate about their roots Allotment drinks was born!
All the drinks really shine a light on grow your own traditions. Herbs & flowers you can find in your garden to veg plots , window troughs & hedgerows. This year I’m sure a lot more people got their own hands dirty in the mud!
All the drinks are 100% botanical extract flavours and colourings so no nasties of artificial colours and flavours which is fairly rare these days.
Low in sugar , suitable for Vegans , gluten free and the packaging is recyclable! I love companies that are green it really does make a difference to me when picking products now.
They have a range of 3 flavours –
Hipsta soda ,Barbarilla Soda& Bloody Tonic. Below I will outline each ones flavour profile
Hipstar soda, has won a great taste award . It’s very delicate in flavour with borage , rise , cucumber , rose hip , meadowsweet &chervil! This ones super refreshing!
Goes well as a G&t and a nice lemon wedge
Renowned for its bright pink colour, which is actually naturally formed from sweet potato, apple, radish and cherry. Uses extracts from rhubarb, elderberry & black currents& star anise.
Recommended to mix with white rum if mixing but also good on its own.
Bloody tonic sends your tongue in a twist! A really aromatic hit of tomatoes , cucumber and then horseradish abd a hint of black pepper. It’s basically a Bloody Mary already!
Have it as a Bloody Mary, a nice shot of vodka! Or on its own.
They all taste very delicious and defiantly very unique unlike any other drinks I’ve come across. Good to drink just like that as a soft drink.I love how they’re all flavoured with things you can find in your garden! As a keen gardener , forager myself it just shines a light on these items you can produce and what they could become.
