HAVE YOUR SPIRIT, AND DRINK IT TOO

The Peak (Singapore) - - The Hot Seat -

Even if your med­i­ta­tion guru pre­scribes a tee­to­tal life­style, there's hope. With Seed lip(www. seed lip drinks. com), the world’s first al­co­hol-free spirit, drink­ing can truly be all about flavour ap­pre­ci­a­tion. Cop­per pot­dis­tilled from unique mixes of herbs and then blended, these drops are the work of Bri­tish hob­by­ist dis­tiller turned en­tre­pre­neur Ben Bran­son. Un­like al­co­hol­free bev­er­ages that at­tempt to mimic the taste of their buzz-in­duc­ing coun­ter­parts, Seedlip has its own com­plex flavour pro­file. Spice 94, for in­stance, has a heady mix of all­spice berries and car­damom, with cit­rusy notes, and a long bit­ter fin­ish thanks to oak and cas­car­illa bark. Next month, a third ex­pres­sion – Grove 42, a sum­mery con­coc­tion marked by or­ange zest, man­darin pith, lemon­grass and gin­ger – will be avail­able in Sin­ga­pore. The nu­anced flavours of Seedlip work well when mixed with ton­ics, or into mar­tini-style drinks. The likes of The Fat Duck, Eleven Madi­son Park and An­dre Chi­ang’s Raw in Taipei are proudly serv­ing it.
