Hard seltzer drinks are a new import from the US: sparkling water that is flavoured with fruit juice with alcohol too. A more natural alternative to conventional alcoholic drinks, these are some of England’s more sustainable brands.
Berczy Hard Seltzer Drinks
Berczy Hard Seltzer is a sparkling alcoholic water, inspired by a trip to Canada. These vegan drinks are low in calories and sugar, and gluten-free. The perfect gift, they are also good for BBQs, picnics or a relaxing evening. Made in England, sustainability is at the core of all they do. Made from natural fruits, British spring water and four-times distilled sugar beet alcohol, the drinks are available in 3 flavours (also as a mixed pack) in a cardboard box:
- Lemon & Lime (low-cal gin & tonic alternative)
- Peach & Raspberry (sweet, light & refreshing)
- Passionfruit & Turmeric
Long Shot Seltzer Drinks
Long Shot Drinks makes hard seltzers (alcoholic sparkling waters) in classic British flavours. Inspired by an idea from North America, these drinks translate the flavours to the kinds that are popular in England. Sold in tins, all the drinks are under 70 calories and cater to a variety of needs (vegan, gluten-free, low-sugar and keto-friendly). The range includes:
- Strawberry Rhubarb
- Raspberry Blackcurrant
- Grapefruit (check medication)
Dash Water Seltzer Drinks
Dash Water offers sparkling water drinks in cans, in lemon, raspberry or blackcurrant. These drinks are made with squashed fruit that would otherwise go to landfill, and refreshing spring water, for uplifting bubbles over sugar and fake flavours. Up to 40% of UK fruits and veggies go to waste, so this little company is helping to make a difference to reduce this.
