The Age Old Dilemma of What to Drink When You're Not Drinking

Posted on 22 March 2018

Ever suffered the dilemma of what to drink when you’re not drinking … well you’re suffering is over my friend!
 
Seedlip has created the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirits. Ben, Seedlip’s fearless founder, has a 300 year farming ancestry, a fascination for the art of distillation, a passion for Mother Earth, & a desire to change the way the world drinks. It was inevitable he would arrive at Seedlip, right?! 

 

    

 

"I think of us as a nature company rather than a drinks company. I wanted Seedlip to use amazing ingredients & to capture the art of nature," says Ben.
 
Seedlip comes in two versions:

 

Seedlip Spice 94
Aromatic & woody. Oak, cascarilla bark, cardamom all spice, lemon & grapefruit.

 

Seedlip Garden 108
Herbal & floral. Hay, pea, spearmint, rosemary, thyme, hop.

 

  

 

Ben is also developing a third version of Seedlip, about which he's remaining fairly tight-lipped, other than to say it will be a dark spirit.
 
Served in the world’s best three cocktail bars, over 100 Michelin starred restaurants & luxury hotels … my humble opinion – it’s dreadfully good. And should you need more convincing, it’s rap sheet reads like a dream: sugar, calorie, & sweetener free, no artificial flavours, no allergens ...
 
A little while ago I became aware of the phenomenon of Seedlip, but it was only a month ago while in the UK, the birth place of Seedlip, that I decided I needed to find out first hand what all the buzz was about. So I dragged myself off to a rather swanky establishment to indulge in some well earned Seedlip mocktails … & my life hasn’t been the same since.
 
In fact, I was so taken with what I tasted that I brought out all my powers of persuasion to charm the barman into sharing his well-guarded recipes with me … so I can now share them with you, along with a few from Seedlip themselves. But before we kick off, here’s the recipe for Sugar Syrup, which you’ll find in some of the recipes:
 
Sugar Syrup
1:1 ratio of brown sugar & boiling water, leave to cool. Bottle & used as needed.
 
Let’s start with a couple of rather straightforward recipes:
