Yule love this range of non alcoholic drinks with the generosity of fine wine
Not every Christmas celebration has to end in a hangover, especially not if you serve or gift the delectable Jukes Cordialities range. Jukes Cordialities is the brainchild of Matthew Jukes, a world-renowned wine taster and writer, with over thirty years’ experience in the international wine trade.
The absence of any seriously rewarding, non-alcoholic drinks saw Matthew create Jukes, a series of drinks that do everything that wine does on the nose, palate and finish, but without any grapes or alcohol involved, and all extremely low in calories.
All Jukes Cordialities engender a similar, satisfying perfume, mouthfeel and aftertaste of a glass of fine wine, by combining fruit, vegetables, herbs, spices and flowers with a gentle, long, cool maceration in organic apple cider vinegar, to extract exactly the right amount of colour and flavour from each component.
The drinks come in a beautiful box, thus just need a festive flourish and a wrap of ribbon to make them the perfect gift for under the tree or attending a party.
Just because you decide upon non-alcoholic this year it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on any of the festivities from mixing Jukes 1 with sparkling water for a beautiful fizz replacement with a long finish filled with peach blossom, refreshing cucumber, top quality plums, tart apples and pineapple husk.
To using Jukes 6 to the perfect pairing to Christmas lunch with its deep blackcurrant and blackberries flavours while layers of complexity are introduced thanks to the red fruit, raspberries, strawberries and plums which give an extra dimension and depth of flavour.
To finish off with the perfect cheese board pairing look no further than Jukes 2, the main flavour themes found on the palate are built on the precise blending of cranberries, sour cherries, blueberries, pomegranates, red apples and raspberries and with the addition of earthy vegetables, fragrant herbs and warming spices.
Find Jukes Cordialities spreading good tidings and festive cheer at the delightful Christmas at Kew Gardens on Tuesday 16 November. Taste the collection of refined cordialities and do a spot of Christmas shopping, with Jukes Cordialities making the ultimate sophisticated gift timed perfectly for drinks parties aplenty and Dry January too.
