REVIEW: "Drinks Kitchen Aperitifs? Delicious Cool Ambrosia!"

“These beautifully and sustainably packaged bottles each deliver their own unique grown-up flavour experience.  Orange Cinchona is my non-alcoholic amber nectar; made long with sparkling water, it’s refreshingly satisfying with layers of flavour so unusual yet moreish, it’s hard to resist a second. Spiced Rhubarb & tonic with ice and a slice is refined sophistication and with notes of aromatic juniper, it’s hard to believe its not a G&T.  Herb Verde with Mediterranean tonic is the taste of holidays for me.  A cool glass of this immediately transports me to a beach-side bar in the Balearics – just heavenly.

Do yourself a flavour favour and give Drinks Kitchen a try”.

“We have been offering DK non-alcoholic aperitif in our restaurant for over 6 months now and our customers love it. It offers something a little bit different and special to our non-drinking customers. There is something for everyone in terms of flavour. The sweet Rhubarb, The bitter Orange and the Green herb. In their unusual ceramic bottles they look great too!”

Caroline @ Chefs Table


“I was introduced to this non-alcoholic drink at a festival and fell in love with the design of the bottle, so different to so many on the market already. Then I tried the product and the passion from Alli was obvious and it tastes great! I’ve had it on my back bar for some time now and it sells really well.”

Mary Galer, Miller of Mansfield, Goring


“We have tried all 3 of the non-alcoholic aperitifs and can highly recommend them all.  They were fabulous as an early evening drink, an alternative to the ‘gin & tonic’ and so delicious that it felt like a real treat. We enjoyed ours with sparkling water, this allowed the flavours of the aperitif to shine through.

My absolute favourite is the Orange Cinchona – I’m such a Negroni fan, it really has that vibe and my partner loved the Herb Verde which has a fresh and herby G&T taste”.

Drinks Kitchen Aperitif are something special for you to enjoy without alcohol. The recipes use distillates and extracts from fruits, herbs, spices & bitters blended to make a drinks kitchen aperitif packed with flavour.
The goal is delicious flavours from beginning to end. Handmade by Alli in Weston Super Mare, Somerset.

"These drinks help me make that transition from work to relaxing in the evening. In the past, I would have a glass of wine but I really wanted to cut down and change that habit because I felt my alcohol consumption was unhealthy." Alli.

New customers ask whether or not it's a Non Alcoholic Gin or Spirit.  How you use it is similar but you can just use sparkling water for your mixer as it's  packed with flavour and perfectly balanced without the need for tonic - but of-course, mix to suit your preference.

Spiced rhubarb

The fragrance & flavour of Rhubarb gives big impact in this recipe followed by aromatic juniper and ginger. A gentle chilli heat warms on the finish – Not overpowering but you know its there.

How to Serve
A 25ml measure of Spiced Rhubarb to 175ml of sparkling water, soda or tonic creates the perfect serve.

herb verde

The aroma of fresh mint and herbs sing in our Herb Verde.  The initial burst is of refreshing Mint together with the pea pod notes of Gentian, followed by  more subtle herby notes of Rosemary & Thyme.

How to Serve
A 25ml measure of Herb Verde to 175ml of sparkling water, soda, tonic or chilled green tea creates the perfect serve.

orange cinchona

Gentle woody notes from Cinchona & fruity Orange are the initial flavours followed by more zesty peel and herbaceous notes of quassia & oregano. Orange Cinchona has a gentle bitter sweet finish.

How to Serve
A 25ml measure of Orange Cinchona to 175ml of sparkling water or soda creates the perfect serve.

So I make my drinks at a food development centre near my home @foodworks in Weston, Somerset.
It opened the year I gave up my job and it seemed like fate that I start making my own drinks as I’ve sold or created drinks for other people pretty much my whole career.
I make them by hand - I dream about automatic labelling 😊
If you’ve tried them, I hope you love them! 
If you haven’t then get on and order one - I’ve got a mortgage to pay and I’m penniless! Just kidding…kind of.

FREE Bottle pourer with every order today.
Then you can re-use* your lovely ceramic bottle for olive oil or dressings after you have finished with it.
Just check out as normal, I’ll add a pourer to your order.

FREE UK delivery 🚚 and packed in this nice little box - plastic free - £22 all in 🎁 
Pretty good huh?
It's not an ingredient that most have heard of but the bark is one of the species that quinine is extracted from, which is widely used in tonic and medicinal use - as well as for malaria, quinine is excellent for cramp.
One of the main ingredients in the DK Orange Cinchona, the bark is steeped to extract a woody bitter flavour. If you love bitter flavours then you will love it.
Herb Verde is the big surprise flavour.  Some people are not sure what a mix of herbs in a drink will be like but once they try it, the big majority love it and it's often the favourite.
Taste of the West awarded it gold in its first year and it went into the final and it's got another gold this year.
Available in 50cl and 70cl sizes online.

Spiced Rhubarb with soda & a dash of ginger beer.
Just lip smackingly good.
Time to chill, chat and enjoy.
Salute. 🥂 

If you fancy exploring Tetbury, Cirencester and the nature reserves at Swillbrook which are all lovely then The Rectory Hotel is a fabulous place to stay in Crudwell with super easy access of the M4 J17. Just a stroll opposite is it’s sister, The Potting Shed Pub which is serves a creative British menu so you can enjoy fabulous food and drink at both venues.
It’s also a pet friendly hotel so you can take the pooch 🐾 
I met Alex the owner & his Ops Manager Jenna recently and they were super friendly and now stock the Drinks Kitchen Aperitif range so you can also take a Sunday drive for a lovely lunch treat but definitely book ahead to avoid disappointment.

Every moment can be the first moment of something new; a new way of being you.
Whatever that looks like for you - make the most of it.


The Art of Aperitivo


In Italy, Aperitivo is so much more than just a drink, it’s an inherent part of the culture.  Between 6-9pm, bars are packed with families and friends socialising and catching up for a few hours over a drink and with a light snack before heading off to dinner.

What a great way to start the evening!  By enjoying a non-alcoholic Italian aperitif, we can make it an regular occurrence and drive home safely.

I think after 2020, we are all going to appreciate spending time with those we love even more and what better way, than with a glass of our aperitif in your hand.
