Sea Buckthorn is a luxurious alcohol-free spirit boasting rich, complex & bittersweet flavours that will excite your palate.
Bittersweet Seville Orange, aromatic Mediterranean herbs, and Sea Buckthorn berries give the drinker a relaxing evening sipper. “These flavours de-stress me at the end of the day” says Rose, “the long finish is like a good quality gin. I love it with bubbly tonic, ice, and a strip of orange zest”
Bax Botanics are proudly designed by nature and pay homage to the ingredients they use. Whether that be through sourcing organic and ethically grown herbs, using sustainable and recycled materials, or putting the plant front and centre on the bottle (yes, that’s a microscopic image of a plant cell). The unique Sea Buckthorn berries are the focus of this bold and concentrated alcohol-free spirit that brings an intensity you don’t always get in the non-alc category.
What does it taste like?
Nose: warming & pungent aromatics, fruity with fresh herbs
Palate: dry and bitter, complexity driven by the Sea Buckthorn berries, citrus notes of Seville oranges, depth from underlying herbs like rosemary & thyme and finishes with a subtle spicy & acidic bite
Conclusion: it is an award-winning spirit for a reason, it’s unique and bursting with flavour
It is essential to try the classic Bax & Tonic (1 part Bax, 3 parts premium tonic) over ice with a twist of orange zest but Sea Buckthorn also plays well with others. Try it in different variations of the non-alcoholic Negroni or with ginger ale.
“There’s a reason why this offering won a Great Taste Award – it truly does have a sublime flavour, as well as sleek packaging. Reminiscent of a gin, this fragrant spirit has notes of Mediterranean herbs (to me it smells of freshly picked rosemary) and berries. Another reason I love Bax Botanics is that it’s a small, sustainably run business with a real passion for delivering high-quality drinks at no detriment to the planet. Their other offering, Verbena, is also well worth checking out if something citrussy is more your bag.” @cosmopolitanuk
