Healthier drink choices for all of your entertaining needs

Can you believe Christmas is NEXT MONTH!? The festive season is well and truly upon us, and BBQs, entertaining and Christmas parties are back on the agenda.

We know it can be hard trying to find unique, convenient, healthier and of course, delicious, drinks ideas for your spring/summer gatherings ... but you need look no further. Between our ready to drink Petites range, and our super-tasty concentrates/mixers, we've got your party needs covered. 

Our 'Petites' range - a pure alternative to traditional soft drinks

Better for you, our refreshing still and bottle-fermented sparkling ‘Petites’ are all natural and made right here on our farm, using nourishing, home-grown ingredients. Our Petites are lower in sugar than most popular soft drinks (some by as much as 70%), but we promise we don’t skimp on flavour. 

All non-alcoholic and preservative free, not too sweet, not too dry, they're great for adults and kids alike. Available in convenient 250ml bottles, in 6 fresh flavours:

  • Elderflower Sparkling (elegantly delicate)
  • Annie's Garden Fruits (with health-giving turmeric)
  • Elderflower Lemon & Ginger Tea (nurturing)
  • Elderflower Blush (with a hint of raspberry)
  • Elderberry Sparkling (antioxidant rich)
  • Sour Cherry Cold Pressed Juice (the perfect 'pick me up')

Our Petites are perfect on their own, but if an alcoholic beverage is more your thing, they also make great mixers! 

Hot Tip - Take a sip, add a nip
For a quick mixed drink, just take a decent sip out of your chosen Petites bottle and add a nip of your favourite spirit straight to the bottle. Couldn't be easier!

Our Elderflower Sparkling with a splash of Tasmanian Gin is our most popular go-to.

Cocktail recipes for easy entertaining

We've had the tough job of testing out some recipes for delicious and refreshing cocktails. We think these two drinks are super simple, but suitably impressive.

Perfect for entertaining, and easy to scale up to a jug or punchbowl size to quench the thirst of the masses.
