Too early for a drink? No I don’t think so either. Meet my ISO discovery Seedlip, the world’s first non-alcoholic spirits company reinventing conventional alcoholic drinks. Created by farmer-turned-entrepreneur Ben Branson after recognising a gap in the market for sophisticated non-alcoholic beverages, and experimenting with incredible, historic recipes he discovered whilst reading John French’s 1651 book “The Art Of Distillation”. Branson has successfully solved the age-old social dilemma of what to drink, when you’re not drinking.
This is a game changer for me, being a closet non-drinker in a society that only recognises a good time when alcohol is involved; I’ve expertly crafted many excuses to explain why I’m not drinking when the social consensus is I should be. In fact, I’m suitably qualified to give John French’s book a run for its money with my own account titled “1651 tested and accepted reasons to explain your way out of drinking”.
Seedlip is available in three unique blends, Spice 94, Garden 108 and Grove 42, you’ll also find the website offers many delectable serving suggestions. Or if you prefer to keep it simple, build Seedlip over ice with tonic water, it’s a refreshingly hydrating mix and an easy way to recreate the classic gin and tonic.
