There has been an increase in the popularity of Hard Seltzers and Alcoholic Sodas in the UK so we thought it was the perfect chance to let you know some of our favourites!
Whisp – a brand-new refreshing and 100% British hard seltzer (aka alcoholic sparkling water). Designed for those looking for the perfect balance between health and enjoyment – up for the hang out, not the hangover – Whisp drinks are made from naturally and sustainably sourced British ingredients and are 100% vegan and gluten-free, with no added sugar, sweeteners or preservatives, making them the ideal choice for those looking to drink less and better. With less than 66 calories per can and low alcohol content (4%), Whisp drinks even contain added milk thistle – the detox hero (hurrah!) – helping to tackle inflammation and supporting a healthy liver.
Available in two refreshing flavours, Whisp Cucumber & Mint combines fresh cucumber and cooling mint in a mouth-watering match – crisp, refreshing and virtuous enough that there is no need to stop after one! With juicy raspberries and hand-picked elderflower, Whisp Raspberry & Elderflower is delightfully and delicately fruity – perfectly balanced to whisp you away!
