Bottlegreen introduces new “Try Me Hot” cordial range


** Giveaway to win some here **

I have been drinking Bottlegreen for a long while now, in fact its in one of my first ever reviews. Here

I associate it with long summers, Grand Marnier, bbq's the BBC Good Food show my favourite memories of it are all summery, so when Bottle Green asked me to try it hot, I was intrigued.
I get fed up with tea in the evening sometimes, I am overly into cold drinks at night unless they are alcoholic *hic*
So the idea appealed to me in theory, in practice its very appealing.
I tried the  Elderflower as its my favourite flavour and it is so soothing, warming and sweet. I would never have thought I would like it as I was never a fan of hot blackcurrant offered as a child.
Its light and flowery still and comforts on a cold night, makes a perfect change to tea for me and keeps me away from the wine.

I also recommend the Ginger and Lemongrass, I believe this will be a real treat when I am full of the sniffles, its spicy and sharp but again sweet and really warms me.
Ii was overall surprised on just how lovely Bottlegreen are hot and I am keen to try the other varieties too.
With the nights still long and dark and smoke rising up from chimneys, there’s nothing better than to curl up in front of the TV with a nice warming drink. Delicious, elegant and warming, bottlegreen’s cordials served with hot water make the ideal alternative to caffeinated hot drinks.

Made using traditional winemaking techniques and only the finest, natural ingredients, the cordials are blended to create the perfect balance of flavours, and there are numerous tantalising flavours to choose from. We thought we’d make it easier for you to choose the best flavours to serve hot. Look out for the new “Try Me Hot” flash on some of our most popular hot cordial flavours, including the NEW bottlegreen Lime cordial.

If the weather is getting you down, put a zing back into your step with the new bottlegreen Lime cordial. This wonderfully zesty cordial is made using only the juiciest and flavoursome limes and is sure to keep the winter goblins and ghouls at bay.

If you’ve managed to get over the January blues then reward yourself with a little “me time” and a mug of bottlegreen Spiced Berry. Curl up on the sofa with your favourite book and enjoy this delicious blend of winter berries, cloves and stimulating hot spices make this an ideal winter warmer.

Let your mind escape to the exotic Orient with a truly warming drink of our fiery Ginger & Lemongrass cordial blended with hot water. Try this warming combination of fragrant Thai root ginger and tender shoots of lemongrass served with food, or as a refreshing midday pick-me-up.

Used by herbalists since Roman times as a traditional cure to ward off the (symptoms of colds and flu, elderflower may be a traditional summer flavour, but try bottlegreen Elderflower cordial with hot water and you’ll discover just how soothing this classic flavour can be on a chilly winter’s night!

  1. Great review, I bet the Spiced Berry flavour is gorgeous hot.

  2. These sound yummy - I used to drink hot Ribena when I was a wee girl. This looks like the adult version!

  3. I tried one of these over winter and really didn't like it - warm ribena / squash and that winter warmers juice are far far nicer. Most of this went down the sink.
