Wild Drinks Review: September 2017
Jonathan Wallington, the fabulous founder of the wonderful Wild drinks brand, has experienced a complex entrepreneurial journey, that has seen both highs and lows, but after a lot of energy, effort and enthusiasm, WILD drinks are here and yes they are wild, as the original idea behind WILD was a ‘Sloe-gasm’! ‘Sloe-gasm’ a mix of champagne and sloe gin came about after Jonathan had a bumper Sloe crop in 2012 on his Dorset farm. Sloes at the ready and several crafty concoctions later Jonathan settled for a Perry base sourced from the North of England, Gin from the Thames distillers, finished off with natural ingredients which are gluten free, suitable for vegans, low in calories, naturally light and made in the UK.
Jonathan has focused on every detail even down to the bottle branding, that has a natural, sophisticated and elegant design, which is synonymous with the quality of the natural spritz drink contained inside. Jonathan has delivered delicious drinks which the discerning drinker can enjoy in the comfort of their own home.
The new Superstar Sloe is scrummy, serve straight up, stick in a straw and it is good to go. A vibrant velvety colour and a warm flavour make this drink perfect to serve on any occasion.
Winner of a 2017 Great Taste Award, The Elderflower Spritz made a lovely lush Elderflower, apple and gin cocktail. Garnish with lemon and apple for refreshing floral and delicate sipper which would be a great addition to any dinner party.
Another 2017 Great Taste Award in the bag, but this time for the Plum Spritz which made a lip-smackingly tasty Plum and Tonic, serve up with ice and a slice of lime for a comfort hug in a mug.
The Ginger Wine spritz award winners in the 2017 British Bottlers Institute, provides you with a pleasant ginger infusion. Splash into a large wine glass, pack in some ice and add a lemon to garnish.
