Bottlegreen has now been around since 1989 and produces 18,000,000 bottles of naturally stylish soft drinks a year. The beautifully designed range has expanded from that one simple elderflower cordial to over 22 different varieties.
I was sent a bottle of Bottlegreen Ginger and Lemongrass cordial & a bottle of their Spiced Berry cordial.
I tried the Bottlegreen Ginger & Lemongrass 1st & my nose went straight in & I could smell the ginger, I made it with cold water firstly & you could taste both the ginger & the lemongrass. Next I made it with hot water & wow the flavours really came out, it was full of flavour, initially the lemongrass & then the Ginger as a lovely after taste. You can add it to stir-fry’s & even salad dressings for a great original flavour.
Next I made the Spiced Berry cordial, again with cold water 1st & then with hot water. It has a really strong smell of cloves even once it’s diluted & I was a little worried it may overtake the flavours but it didn’t. I preferred it warm as I felt it did have more body to it. If you add some red wine to it & warm it it will make a lovely mulled wine (or omit the wine & it’s alcohol free).
All Bottlegreen Cordials are made with Cotswold Spring Water. Why not check out their webpage for some great recipe ideas not only food but cocktails……….. I spotted on there they also recommend you try their Elderflower Cordial with Gin & tonic …… now that sounds good!
