Double Dutch Drinks Review: March 2017
Twins, Joyce & Raissa de Haas started the aptly named Double Dutch Drinks Brand. Raised in the Netherlands, birthplace of gin, these ladies know a thing or two about superior drinks and brilliant unbeatable blending’s. Excitement and exploration lead them both on a challenging journey realising that the market for mixers and sodas was full of unimaginative options. Two minds at work and this perfect pair have created the deliciously delightful double Dutch drinks brand which offers a range of mixers that can be used in unison with a drink or can be enjoyed solo. Impressively, Richard Branson supported the brand and presented the twins with a Foodpreneur Award for their innovative Food and Beverage brand. It’s not hard to see why, as for the twins a mixer is not just a mixer, it is much much more, it’s about taking a drink to revolutionary new heights, where both drink & mixer is of equal importance, synonymously working together to create an intense palatal pleasure.

So, move on over coffee cowboy there is a new coffee sheriff in town. ‘Wanted Coffee’ are ready for a show down and are set to revolutionise the UK coffee market. I managed to escape from the saloon bar on horseback with my loot of Wanted Coffee to review, but keep this low key as I am now wanted for coffee crimes and reward posters are all over town.

Nelson in New Zealand is the birth place of the perfect Pic’s Peanut Butter. Pic began his peanut butter production in his garage selling these jars of deliciousness at his local farmers market every Friday afternoon.

Then in 2007 Pic discovered Greg Bain’s the premium nut broker, 25 kilo bags of blanched Australian peanuts later and a lot of hard work, has seen the Pic’s brand continue to see massive global growth ever since.
