1870 Premium British Mixers


Christmas is the season for  a special drink, maybe something you don't buy throughout the year, I don't tend to drink spirits except for Christmas and to offer to friends.

If I am going to buy a bottle of gin it has to be a good one and the same goes for the mixer. Its once  year so I like to splash out.

I was unfamiliar with 1870 their range is interesting as all the mixers are made with Kentish spring water. Added to this are familiar flavours.

I tried the lemonade and found it a lovely crisp not too sweet flavour. They have a sugar free variety too.
 Really refreshing on its own but will be lovely with a favorite tipple.
I tried the tonic, again a lovely flavour no aftertaste as an happen with some brands.

I spotted they do a Bitter Lemon, this is my all time favourite cold drink, yes there I go again with the lemon addiction!!

I will be stocking up in two weeks as its such a great price too.
I will also leave you with a lovey recipe for the festive season. Cheers!
