HAVE YOUR SPIRIT, AND DRINK IT TOO
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.
