Handmade Cordials from Demijohn Offer Non-Drinkers a Spectacular Treat

Demijohn launches a set of 6 handmade British cordials
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 properly at The Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh 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).
Set of 6 cordials in 100ml bottlesDemijohn’s Angus Ferguson says: “As a host we all try to entertain our guests equally. Yet it has been increasingly difficult to find an exceptional drink with which to offer our adult non-drinking guests. A year ago with this in mind, Frances and I set ourselves the challenge to refresh the options available for this grown up, discerning non-drinking market. The result is our new range of Demijohn cordials that can be mixed to make long, refreshing drinks that are as enjoyable as a glass of good table wine. Parties have once again become fun for all!”
The cordials are priced at £6.45 for 100ml, £9.95 for 375ml and £12.75 for 500ml sealed bottles and are available in store and by mail order via Demijohn’s website.
