PENTIRE: A BOTANICAL ADVENTURE

Posted on Jul 30, 2019 by

We believe that drinking shouldn’t hold you back from the adventures of tomorrow.”

Pentire Adrift is a new Cornish botanical non-alcholic spirit, recently launched by Pentire Drinks. Born from founder Alistair Frost’s love of adventure and the outdoors, Pentire Adrift has been created to capture the smell, sound, flavour and feeling of being by the ocean.

The new spirit contains carefully distilled rock samphire, sage, sea fennel, citrus and other Cornish plants native to Pentire Headland near Polzeath. Thanks to its favourable climate, soil pH and air moisture, Pentire is one of the most diverse headlands in the UK for its range of plant life.

Following research and experimentation with local botanists, distillers and brewers, the resulting non-alcoholic spirit is crisp and light, with aromas of citrus and coastal plants, and a complex yet balanced flavour which incorporates the local botanicals, herbs and sea salt.

Pentire Adrift is also free from added sugar, artificial colourings and flavourings, and makes a fabulous non-alcoholic alternative in the cocktail recipes below.
