Coldpress Drinks Review

In a world where new flavours are almost a daily occurrence I for one still love all the original ones at times.

Apple juice is a regular drink in my home, in fact we go through lots. I like my children, hubby, myself and Granny to get our 5 a day and  a juice is one of the easier ways to ensure this.

When Coldpress asked me to try their new drinks I was happy to say yes. The Coldpress juice is apple juice with a difference. If it says Golden Delicious apples then that is what you are tasting. All the drinks I tried are just as if the fruit has been picked freshly and the juice extracted into a glass that day.

The Braeburn apple is exactly the taste of a Braeburn it is so refreshing, so natural. I shared with Granny who adored them and I will be stocking up for her this winter. 

They showcase different varieties of apples to get a true flavour and not only that, they  are made using careful procedures to retain the pure fresh taste.

Coldpress Pink Lady has just won the title of Best Adult Beverage in The Grocer’s prestigious New Product Awards 2012!

 Big juice brands tend to use heat pasteurisation to extend shelf life, this can lead to over-cooking of the ingredients, robbing them of all their delicate flavour notes, aromas and nutritional goodness,which means they taste nothing like the fruit they are supposed to contain. 

Coldpress fruit is picked, crushed, filtered and bottled, and then treated to a unique cold pressure process (HPP) instead of heat which allows individual apple varieties like Braeburn, Granny Smith and Pink Lady to proudly showcase their unique flavours.  The result is a unique, pure and fresh taste in every mouthful.

Compared to heat pasteurised fruit juice, each bottle of Coldpress contains:
  • Double the antioxidants
  • Double the vitamin C
  • 100% fruit (a 250ml bottle contains three apples or oranges)
  • One portion of your five a day
  •  and it lasts eight times longer in the fridge!

But Coldpress juices aren’t just about delicious apple varieties. Other fruits such as Valencia orange, raspberries, strawberries, passion fruit and lemons are also given the same careful treatment – not only to let their unique taste talents shine through, but also to retain twice the vitamin C and antioxidant levels of their more traditional heat-blasted rivals.

The full Coldpress range includes Pink Lady Apple, Braeburn Apple, Granny Smith Apple, Golden Delicious Apple,Apple & Peach, Apple and; Passionfruit, Apple and Lemon, Apple and Strawberry, Apple and Raspberry, Valencia Orange and Tropical.  Available in 250ml and 750ml bottles and available from Waitrose, Tesco and Ocado plus a growing nationwide network of discerning delis, farm shops and independent coffee shops.  RSP 250ml £1.69 and 750ml £2.79.
