For The Drinker And Non Drinker

Honey Mead is one of the world’s oldest alcoholic drinks, made simply from fermented honey. Famously enjoyed by the Vikings, its recent renaissance has been put down to the popularity of Norse culture, from TV dramas such as Game of Thrones, to Royal Mail even featuring Viking artefacts on a limited edition set of stamps

Hailing from York, the Viking capital of England, Nidhoggr Mead Co is riding that trend, as demand for its range of authentically crafted honey mead grows beyond its niche heritage. Its Viking founder, Peter Taylor appeared on the latest series of Dragon’s Den and, despite not securing investment, he’s seen the business go from strength-to-strength. He’s more than tripled production to 50,000 bottles a year, secured shelf space in Morrisons and started exporting to the US. 

The craft meadery uses only local and sustainably harvested Yorkshire honey for its drinks, which come in eight flavours and can be enjoyed alone, with a mixer, or as part of a cocktail, perfect for a whole host of occasions and celebrations.

Each product is ABV 15%. It is available at nidhoggrmead.com and in selected Morrisons stores in Yorkshire, with prices starting from £24.

Ron Santiago de Cuba™ Añejo 8-Year-Old ABV 40%, RRP £25.25 at Tesco & Sainsburys

Ron Santiago de Cuba Añejo 8 Years Old has a noble and intense flavour due to its aging in oak barrels, with its delicate aromas of tropical fruits, it is perfect for delicious cocktails such as a Santiago Spritz or on the rocks.

Available at selected larger Tesco and Sainsbury’s stores across the UK and at www.tesco.com and Sainsburys.co.uk Personalised bottles are available at www.getitinkd.com

Nirvana No and Low-Alcohol Brewery : Cloudy Lemon Lager & Hefeweizen (wheat) beer

Available via nirvanabrewery.com (and on Amazon and Ocado), these are a pair of really lovely light, refreshing, summer beers!

The Cloudy Lemon Lager (0.2% ABV) draws inspiration from the ‘radler’ beer tradition in southern Germany – mixing Nirvana’s Helles lager 50:50 with sparkling natural lemonade, resulting in a light refreshing beer that has delicious tart undertones. It’s so good that it’s one of very few low-alcohol beers to have won a prestigious ‘Masters’ award from Drinks Business magazine.

The Bavarian Hefeweizen (0.3% ABV) is a naturally cloudy wheat beer that pays homage to one of Germany’s most revered brewing styles. Its high percentage of wheat yeast lends it a sweet and soft taste with hints of banana, cloves and spice.

Nirvana was the first-ever brewery in the UK dedicated to crafting no and low-alcohol beers.

Set up in 2016 by Becky Kean, whose own dad had just given up alcohol, it brews a variety of delicious beers, from stouts and porters to IPAs and its award-winning Helles lager. 

Available from nirvanabrewery.com in single 500ml bottles or as 12 packs for £29.00 (£2.41/500ml bottle).

What about a cuppa with a difference’ from Bird & Blend Tea Co. for alternative Father’s Day gifts? 

Think alcohol free tea tipples packed with notes of Bourbon, caramel & smoke or a tea take on the Mojito with a refreshing mint & lime infusion.  Or perhaps dad needs a rest so let Deckchair Dreaming aid that with chamomile & apple.  If it’s an ordinary cuppa that will only do, then it’s Builder’s Breakfast and Great British Cuppa for the perfect gift choice.   Lots of teas with a difference, suggestions below and over 100 flavours to choose from online at www.birdandblendtea.com. You can even add alcohol too!

For The Health Conscious Dad

This Father’s Day, skip the clichés and give dad something that’ll truly make a difference to his and your life! Lion’s Mane and Cordyceps mushrooms offer a natural, effective way to keep dad’s brain sharp, his energy high, and his health in check

As Father’s Day approaches, forget the ties and BBQ sets—let’s talk about something that’ll really keep dad on his toes: medicinal mushrooms, specifically Lion’s Mane and Cordyceps. These fungi are the secret potions to help dads stay sharp, energetic, and healthy.

Lion’s Mane Mushroom: The Brain Booster

Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) isn’t just another funny-looking mushroom; it’s a brain booster extraordinaire. Packed with active  and important compounds like hericenones and erinacines, it stimulates connectivity within the brain and may fight off cognitive decline. Studies suggest Lion’s Mane can enhance memory, which means fewer “I forgot where I put my keys” moments and more “Dad, how do you know all this stuff?” moments. It’s also a mood lifter, helping to keep anxiety and depression at bay, so dad can enjoy his family time with a smile. What a gift!

Cordyceps Mushroom: The Energy Enhancer

Some compare Cordyceps mushroom to the equivalent of a double-shot espresso – sure – though it works in a very different way. Not “stimulant” as such, it ramps up ATP production, essential for muscle energy, making it perfect for dads who want to keep up! Cordyceps is also used to support the immune system and, it’s a heart health hero, improving blood flow, also helping maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Making Medicinal Mushrooms a Part of Daily Life

Incorporating Lion’s Mane and Cordyceps into daily routines is easy! ENRICHD offer highly bio available extract powders which can be enjoyed in hot water, hot choc, coffee or in your smoothies.
