One of the newest members of our Taste of Bath family is the fabulous Silver Swift Drinks, and we predict they’re going to make a serious splash with their delicious ‘spirited spritzers’, so we invited them to introduce themselves to you with a little guest blog post…
We’re midway through a record-breaking hot summer, nearly every meal is al fresco and wearing socks seems like a distant memory from the past! It’s ironic that the season to wear the least clothing is the season where we eat and drink the most (with the exception of Christmas of course). Everywhere you turn, you’ll find jugs of Pimms and lemonade, oozy clotted cream and jam scones and perfectly barbecued burgers – so delicious but not so good for the waistline.
Don’t want to undo all your good work in the gym? Then you must try Silver Swift’s spirited spritzers. They’re totally scrumptious, light and refreshing and the best bit is that each gin and vodka spritzer has less than 100 calories per bottle! Not only that, but they’re made with 100% natural ingredients. At 5% alcohol, just a bit stronger than a single G&T, they provide a much more interesting alternative to vodka, lime and soda – which is so last year.
The trio of light, delicious spritzers includes:
Wild Rose Gin – a lightly sparkling wild fusion of premium British gin, raspberry, blackberry, rose and a dash of lemon.
Tipsy Iced Tea Vodka – a curiously fabulous sparkling blend of award-winning 5x distilled British vodka, gooseberry, elderflower and Earl Grey.
Fresh Venture Vodka – a refreshing and lightly sparkling marriage of award-winning 5x distilled British vodka, summer strawberry and fresh peppery basil.
To top off the health credentials, the spritzers are free from gluten and have absolutely no artificial preservatives, sweeteners or flavourings. Guilt-free drinking at its best – hurrah!
Silver Swift founder, Rose Unwin, is a keen triathlete, and wanted to maintain a healthy lifestyle without eliminating the things in life she enjoys – like a drink! And so Silver Swift was born, creating scrumptiously summery drinks with all the taste but a fraction of the calories. Rose also feels passionately about sustainable business, saying “More than ever, nature needs protecting, so we’re dedicated to operating with the lowest carbon footprint possible and use only hand-picked British suppliers, supporting home-grown industries and avoiding unnecessary air miles.” So they’re guilt-free in more ways than one!
Silver Swift’s spritzers are perfect for any occasion from picnics to parties – drinks blogger and spirts enthusiast Inka Kakkumaki has described them as “a refreshing guilt-free premixed drink range with natural and fresh flavours”. Don’t care about the calories? Well as Inka says, they taste utterly fantastic, so don’t let that hold you back! You can get your hands on the Silver Swift range right here in the Taste of Bath online shop.
