Cherrywood: Christmas drinks

Cherrygood, claimed to be one of the UK’s fastest growing juice drinks, claims the cherry drink makes an ideal alternative to red wine and non-alcoholic beverage at Christmas.

It has also created a series of alcoholic cocktails using the cherry juice drink.

According to the company, cherries have been used medicinally for thousands of years but new research reveals the Montmorency cherry – grown in the US – has the highest antioxidant level and has been linked to a variety of health benefits. More than 500 Montmorency cherries are used in each litre of juice drink.

Cherrygood: three one-litre variants

Cherrygood is claimed to be the UK’s only ready to drink cherry juice. It is available in three one-litre variants: Cherrygood Original, Cherrygood Light and Cherry & Berry. Rrp is: £1.39.

The company reports further product launches are in the pipeline.
