Resurrected Welsh soda maker Lurvill’s Delight is introducing a brand-new flavour – ‘Lavender Spice’ – just after scooping a Great Taste Awards’ star for its ‘Original’ variant.
Lavender Spice, which has a RRP of £1.89 for a 330ml bottle, is described as an all-natural, no-added sugar, alternative to ginger beer.
It features a unique botanical blend of lavender with ginger, horseradish, hibiscus, cardamom and rose – plus gently carbonated Welsh spring water.
Again, as with Original, it’s all-natural and free from any additives, preservatives, colourings or added sugar. There’s also just 86 calories per 330ml bottle.
The tiny purple flowers of lavender lend the drink a unique spicy kick, which is enhanced by the aromatic pungency of ginger and the natural heat of horseradish. It’s dry with a light, spicy and remarkably smooth finish.
Lurvill’s MD, Dave Steward, said: “From the outset, we’ve been asked by stockists for another variant. However, we wanted to wait until we’d built solid distribution in our heartland – and were able to prove that a high quality soda with no added sugar would be a hit amongst adults. We’ve done that now and Lavender Spice is a stunning addition to what we can offer – it’s got a subtlety that you don’t get from many drinks with ginger in them.”
