Lovely Handcrafted Soft drinks
We seek out the very best ingredients to make our award-winning range - including handpicked elderflowers, whole lemons and pressed English fruits and flowers. As we like to keep things natural we steer well clear of nasties such as preservatives, concentrates and artificial flavourings.
We have won many awards for our presses and juices, including 14 Great Taste awards, several Taste of the West awards, two Bath Good Food Awards and a Bristol Good Food award. We have also been shortlisted for the BBC Food & Farming awards and the West Daily Press Food & Farming awards.
Lovely Drinks began as a passion project when we started making elderflower presse with the blossoms in our garden and nearby hedgerows. Friends and family kept remarking on how ‘lovely’ it was - and so the seeds of our business were planted.
From serving up our sodas at events and country markets we began supplying local cafes and restaurants, including Michelin-starred. We expanded the range from elderflower presses to juices, ginger beer and lemonades, using local or UK sourced ingredients wherever possible. We now sell our range to independent delis, bars and eateries across the UK and the EU.
We still make, bottle and pack all the drinks ourselves in a converted sawmill in Barrow Gurney, a village on the outskirts of Bristol, the South West’s foodie capital.
We have just developed two all-natural colas, made with hand-blended botanicals and no caffeine, artificial colouring or phosphoric acid. Click here to see more about our range.
