I have never liked the typical 'social drinks' that everyone likes beer, ale, cider, wine and prosecco.
I started becoming the designated driver more and more from late teens through to now (31) because I rarely drink.
Only last year I discovered Curio Rock Samphire Gin that has taken my preference of late with Ginger Beer.
When I attend friends house parties, BBQ's or when I go round someones house for dinner I always buy them a bottle of wine and myself a Shloer or Elderflower presse to enjoy that day/ evening.
The other week I was having lunch at Penrose Kitchen, nr Shortlanesend, Truro and I was paying the bill when I looked behind the waitress and saw this beautifully bottled drink behind her and asked what it was and she said Seedlip, it's a non-alcoholic distilled spirit. She let me smell it and it smelt divine but I had to get back to the office so didn't think much more of it.
Last night I was at a friends house and I saw the beautiful bottle again sitting on her shelf. I asked Ruth what it was like and she said get it down for me and lets enjoy a glass together.
I tell you what this distilled non-alcoholic fusion is a must-bring to any party. 50ml splashed over ice with ice cold fever tree tonic, is so refreshing and smells like Christmas. It is as if you are sipping gin, just without the tipsy side effects. I know what tipple I will be bringing to the party from now on.
I know that Waitrose are selling this product currently, nearest to us in Truro.
