Fentimans Sparkling Lime & Jasmine

I really don’t drink enough fluids although I really do try.  The intent is sooooo there but the memory capacity simply just can’t cope with everything else I must contend with as a busy mother of 3 children, 1 husband and 2 bunnies!  All other mums will understand what I mean, we put the needs of those around us ahead of our own and in some cases the thought of drinking plain water doesn’t always seem appealing.  I love herbal teas, well I should really being a herbalist but many teas contain tannins which have a diuretic effect on the body which in turn dehydrate you further.  What I am partial too is a bit of sparkle in the form of jewellery naturally but also in drink form.  My taste buds and I were extremely excited when we recently discovered a company called Fentimans.  I must admit that I am disappointed that I didn’t discover this company’s products sooner as they would have made a superb addition to the lunches that I have at home with friends and would easily have helped me increase my daily fluid intake.

These guys have been around for over 100 hundred years making drinks using a time-honoured botanical brewing process (a process using herb and plant roots).  Fentimans has a range of products from soft drinks, mixers, pre-mixed alcoholic drinks and even a gluten free alcoholic ginger beer (sounds yummy doesn’t it).

Fentimans 1 Fentimans 2Fentimans have been working on a new product Sparkling Lime & Jasmine and asked me if I wanted to be one of the first in the UK to give it a try.  Having looked up the site and reading about the fact that this company produces all natural products that do not contain additives or preservatives and various herbal infusions I would be crazy not to!

This product is so new that it hasn’t even been added to the website so they sent me some information to tell me about their new non alcoholic drink.

Fentimans 3So what did I think?

The drink was very refreshing for starters and was very easy to drink.  The flavour wasn’t excessively sweet and there is a nice contrast between sweet and bitter.  The bitterness really does kick start those taste buds into waking up which I made the most of as I drank it with a meal.

DSC02273Hyssop one of the herbs used to make this delightful drink is commonly used medicinally for sore throats, to help treat coughs and also as an expectorant (helps bring up mucus from the lungs).  Juniper Berries also used in this drink are commonly used as a diuretic and to help relieve trapped wind.  I would assume the quantities of each herb are small so as not to have a medicinal effect merely to provide a natural flavour to the product.  This is great served chilled and goes well with chicken, fish, meat and salads.
