Hello you gorgeous Sippers! What a pleasure to be scribbling these words in our first ever post.
If you’re reading this, then we have well and truly launched and, we hope you’ll agree, not before time.
The world of “low and no” (-alcoholic drinks) is positively fizzing and we’re more than excited to be bubbling with it - introducing and delivering to you the very best of what’s being crafted and created.
We’ve spent many months on this, not just plucking the most delicious of low-hanging non-alcoholic options but (to pair some contrasting metaphors) trawling the backwaters for those unheralded stalwarts of the booze-free market. Unheralded, we hope, no longer.
Yes, please, to the wonderful likes of Seedlip and Lyre’s – non-alcoholic pioneers widely known – but yes too to the fantastic creations of the likes of Chris and Rose Bax and their stunning Bax Botanic range. Yes, please, to Chris Wilfred Hughes and his “quest for the perfect [non-alcoholic] Spritz”.
Yes, and yes again, to the Colombia-inspired creations of Caleno, not to mention the gorgeous coastal distillations of Alistair Frost and his team at Pentire.
We can’t wait to share these beautiful drinks with you and, along the way, give a little of the stories behind them.
For now, though, a warm welcome to Sippers - wishing you happy, smooth (and sober) sipping.
