Gotta Have It
Fancy joining the rapidly expanding in-crowd that includes the likes of Ellie Goulding, Natalie Portman and Jada Pinkett Smith? Might be time ditch the booze.
The latest drink craze to hit your favourite swanky bar is zero percent alcohol and we are not talking tonic with ice and slice. So do your liver a favour and get ready for some grown-up flavours that will tantalise your taste buds and give you some serious kudos without the (ouch!) downsides of drinking.
Sorry ladies, but it’s a sad fact, booze is bad for your skin, makes you bloated, and gives you a hangover (and they get tragically worse the older you get). Not only that, but if you live out in the sticks like your intrepid Muddy ed, you have to drive pretty much everywhere. Which is why we are swooning over Silverstone based zero alcohol distiller Xachoh’s range of sophisticated, health conscious tipples that you will actually want to treat yourself to. Not only that, the luxe branding means these hefty bottles look totally extra on your drinks trolley and make glam gifts for your girlfriends.
Even if you’re not in the zone to abstain from a glass of merlot with your pub lunch on a Sunday, or a fizz-fuelled birthday blowout, there are always occasions that call for a decent drink that isn’t going to lull you into the dreaded afternoon desk-slump. Which is where Xachoh comes in. Infused with Silk Road spices inspired by founder Mohamad’s Persian heritage, Xachoh’s botanical blends are taking teetotal luxury to the next level with ginger, mace, star anise, camomile and rosemary among the painstakingly selected ingredients.
The idea behind Xachoh is to create a ritual experience with an exotic taste that is both healthy and uplifting and we think they’ve absolutely nailed it. Forget cordials and fizzy drinks, this is alcohol free drinking without the headache-inducing sugar pile-on of a five year-old’s party bag. Sugar free too? Yup. Straighten your haloes and quaff to your heart’s content.
