A new product inspired by the English countryside has been added for Seedlip, the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit brand.
Seedlip Garden 108 is a green and floral blend of copper-pot distillates including handpicked peas and hay from the founder’s family farm and traditional herbs including spearmint, rosemary and thyme. It is recommended for sipping in a long drink with bitter lemon or elderflower tonic.
It follows last November’s launch of the brand with the first product, Seedlip Spice 94, which is made with six individually-distilled barks, spices and citrus peels.
Founder Ben Branson said: “With Garden 108 I wanted to recreate the experience of sitting in our fields eating peas with my grandfather and offer people an adult and delicious drink with a complex profile. We have an exciting summer planned!”
Available in 70cl bottles, Seedlip Garden 108 is recommended for sale in retail at £27.99.
Since its launch, Seedlip has been taken up by leading bars and restaurants. It can be found being served at the likes of Dandelyan, The Savoy, Mandarin Oriental, The Ledbury, Sexy Fish, Chiltern Firehouse and Clove Club in London, The Hand & Flowers in Marlow in Buckinghamshire and The Fat Duck in Bray, Berkshire.
Seedlip’s inspiration and history stems from a book published in London in 1651 named The Art of Distillation, offering forgotten copper-stilled, non-alcoholic (NA) remedies, now repurposed to pioneer a new “NA” spirits category relevant for the modern day.
Seedlip Garden 108 is available to the trade through Speciality Drinks, Fields Morris & Verdin and Furniss Roe. It is also available to buy at Selfridges, Berry Bros & Rudd and 31dover.com.
