Seedlip Non-Alcoholic Spirits
A new way to cocktail.
From a kitchen in the woods of England, with a copper still and a centuries old manual entitled “The Art of Distillation”, Ben Branson is concocting the most exciting elixirs we’ve tasted in recent memory. With a new non-alcoholic option for drinkers in mind, Seedlip has created three non-alcoholic spirits perfect for entertaining at home—with just the addition of tonic (they’re not meant to be enjoyed straight up). Spice 94 is aromatic, earthy, and woodsy, with hints of allspice, oak, and lemon: serve it with tonic and a grapefruit twist. Garden 108 is herbal, grassy, and floral, with peas, hay, and spearmint giving it its delicate flavor: serve with tonic (elderflower tonic is especially nice), and a curlicue of cucumber for a refreshing spring or summer beverage. Grove 42 scales new citrus heights with, not one, not two, but three different types of orange. It's also got a lemongrass-y finish and a little prickle of peppercorn. Serve simply with tonic and a twist of orange peel.
- Ingredients: Garden 108: peas, hay, rosemary, thyme, spearmint, and hop; Spice 94: allspice, cardamom, Oak, Cascarilla bark, lemon, and grapefruit peel; Grove 42: bitter orange, blood orange and mandarin.
