Belvoir Fruit Farms has launched a new Cucumber & Mint Pressé, which will be available in Asda.
The company is also encouraging the nation to raise a very cordial glass to Her Majesty the Queen on her 90th birthday with a limited edition of its original Elderflower Cordial, resplendent with a union jack and a birthday message on the label.
The Leicestershire based, family-run business has been making its award winning Elderflower Cordial for over 30 years. Hand made at Belvoir using only natural ingredients with no artificial preservatives, additives or sweeteners, Belvoir invites the local community to help pick the fresh elderflowers that they need to make each year’s vintage from their own plantations and the hedgerows growing wild in the country.
If punters would prefer to raise a more alcoholic glass to honour the Queen, then Belvoir has come up with a punch recipe to share with friends and family – ‘Give Peach a Chance’ – which is on the back label of the limited edition bottles.
Made with juice from real pressed English cucumbers grown in Kent, blended with aromatic mint extract from freshly picked garden mint, and the floral notes of geranium, the Cucumber & Mint Pressé is said to be the perfect thirst quenching drink for a summer’s day served chilled over ice but also simply delicious mixed with gin or in a jug of Pimms.
Like all Belvoir’s drinks Cucumber & Mint Pressé is hand made at Belvoir using only natural ingredients with no artificial preservatives, colouring, additives or sweeteners.
Pev Manners, MD of Belvoir Fruit Farms, said: “We actually sold a Cucumber & Mint variant back in 2010 called ‘Summer Cooler’, however I think we were too ahead of the game. The name didn’t explain what was in it, unlike the new product ‘which does what it says on the tin’ and now that cucumber has become such a popular flavour, we believe this improved recipe will be hugely successful. It tastes fantastically refreshing on a summer’s day but also makes a superb mixer with spirits.”
Cucumber & Mint Pressé comes in 75cl bottles or 25cl bottles. The 75cl bottles, are available from Asda for around £2.39 and both bottle sizes can be purchased from www.belvoirfruitfarms.co.uk.
