DISTINCT NON ALCOHOLIC DRINKS IDEAL FOR DRY JANUARY 2022

CELEBRATE SCOTTISH HERITAGE WITH TALONMORE NATURAL NON-ALCOHOLIC SPIRITS WITHOUT LIMITATIONS

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

Let your tastebuds explore Scotland’s heritage where Talonmore’s birthplace of Cramond has a longstanding history with evidence of Mesolithic, Bronze age, and Roman settlements.

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

BREWED INSTEAD OF DISTILLED
Unlike other non alcoholic spirits, Talonmore is brewed instead of distilled – ensuring Talonmore is a great tasting drink and 0% ABV.

“Is your spirit without limitations like Talonmore? Expect the fiery taste, like the pleasant burn of alcohol – but free of sacrifice”

Talonmore has been designed to replicate the experience of drinking a dark spirit such as whisky, rum or cognac but without the headaches. Creating non-alcoholic beverages from rooted and plant based ingredients to replicate spirit strength drinks with signature fiery flavour. No alcohol, no compromises.

Without the need of ethanol to carry the flavour or distillation to produce, Talonmore is complex, well balanced non-alcoholic spirit and full of flavour. It doesn’t bite but it’s still got a unique kick about it ready to start your weekend leaving you feeling liberated to tackle any adventure.

“0% ABV, 100% Unique. The dark spirit experience, with none of the morning after compromise”

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

Talonmore’s non-alcoholic spirit is all about getting reacquainted with the elements, created for adventurous drinkers and crafted from natural ingredients. Adopting the philosophy of natural elements ensures that flavour is always at the forefront of every sip, with superfoods such as ginger that have recognised health benefits and healing properties. This is complemented with hawthorn berry, cactus juice and assam tea for a unique and well balanced blend.

Whatever your view, the sun sets better with a non alcoholic drink and unrivalled taste. Be inspired by the versatility of Edinburgh’s historic charm, natural surroundings and unique festival spirit. They say a drink without equal is always worth a shot don’t you think. What’s fascinating about this beverage is that its a full bodied, unique blend of complex fiery flavours where plant based infusion and Scottish passion goes into every bottle of Talonmore.

Experience hearty hints of ginger with an impressive citrus punch, Talonmore Drinks makes for an ideal partner to ice and a slice of lime – a strong spirit but without the alcohol”

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

MADE IN SCOTLAND
It’s the first Scottish non-alcoholic spirit that’s brewed instead of being distilled and maximise flavour and mouthfeel. Experience taste that delivers in every drop. 

Fancy it as part of a Cocktail or Stand alone Drink

I discovered that Talonmore was created to perform equally well as part of a cocktail mixer or as a standalone drink. I quite like mine with a splash of cranberry juice for an energising and refreshing beverage. Personally, I think it’s best serve cold, over ice, with a twist of lime just perfect every time. A non-alcoholic drink isn’t half a drink – and there’s nothing missing from Talonmore’s naturally non-alcoholic spirit.

Best Served

I recommend serving Talonmore drinks over crushed ice with a sharp twist of lime that lives up to its name that alcohol free doesn’t have to mean soft at all. Although Talonmore is alcohol-free, but certainly not flavour free. Fiery, full-bodied, sometimes less really is more. Notably, you will discover on the rocks or not, the secret recipe is without equal sourced through a formula of rooted and plant based ingredients to ensure flavour is at the forefront. Keep your taste buds captive with a brewed, alcohol free jolt of Talonmore by making it into a long drink with your favourite mixer or just as it comes neat or with ice. Great news that some lockdown restrictions are easing and we can begin to socialise again. Take this opportunity to enjoy Talonmore outside with friends in the sunshine and make the most of it.

It’s good to know I have options to relax and recharge with Talonmore now that I’ve tried it’s all you could want in a non-alcoholic ginger infused spirit with all the thrill and flavour you’d expect to wind down and disconnect for the weekend. You will be astonished to find out it’s main ingredients is Ginger, but it’s what gives Talonmore its distinctive taste. Think of it as combining the strength of a spirit, but with none of the harsh after effects without sapping your reserves of strength.

Speaking of London Cocktail Week, we have almost officially reached cocktail season and I can’t get enough of Talonmore’s alcohol free take on a Espresso Martini. Success in versatility, Talonmore has been created to replicate the experience of drinking a dark spirit. However, this does not mean we cant explore other ways to enjoy Talonmore. You’ll love the Espresso Moretini, a twist on the traditional espresso martini combines a complex combination of fiery ginger and espresso coffee. This brings out the flavours of chai and chocolate orange, ideal for an afternoon pick-me-up. You will find this also works well with cold bru coffee for a slightly smaller caffeine kick and easier to get more foam this way.

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

The homeplace of Cramond coupled with the prominence and strength of the eagle inspired the brands unique name and brand identity created by it’s founder and Managing Director 23 year old Lewis Kennedy a recent Graduate from Dundee University with a First Class Honours Degree in Product Design. There are many symbols of power in the branding to visualise the intense fiery nature of Talonmore Non-Alcoholic Spirit. The Eagle became the main flagship icon inspired by a local landmark called Eagle Rock is where it took it’s name from. It is known, thousands of years ago, a Roman soldier engraved an eagle into the side of a large boulder. The symbolism of the eagle and the messages it conveys resonated with its founder and after many iterations, Talonmore was born.

With Talonmore you can ensure to have a great time and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning ready to explore another productive day. Cheers to the end of summer with social gatherings hopefully not too far away, Talonmore neat is the perfect serve for those who are driving or looking to monitor calorie intake. Of course, Talonmore has around half the amount of calories than an average gin or whisky.

Start the week in peak condition! Get a real taste of the outdoors, and why not enjoy a drop of Talonmore to celebrate the journey. I would love to hear from you! What kind of setting are you excited to try Talonmore in? Do you think it would be best to enjoy at home, in a favourite trendy bar / restaurant or out and about? I hope you’re excited to try Talonmore, wherever you choose to drink it.

NEED INSPIRATION TO GIVE YOUR HOME INTERIOR A LUXURY MAKE OVER THIS NEW YEAR?

Have You Ever Considered Luxury vinyl flooring for your Home

Vinyl Flooring Perfect for the Party

If you like to entertain crowds at home or are the person to throw parties but fear the clean-up, there is an option that will greatly benefit you in choosing luxury vinyl flooring for your property.

Over the past two decades, interior designers and specialists recommend vinyl tiles and planks as a preferred option. The vinyl option has many benefits for those with limited time for cleaning and maintaining the home. This is much the same as with MDF skirting boards. They are so easy to clean and maintain – plus, they are built to last and are very cost effective too. 

Quick Install

In browsing the many brands within the vinyl flooring marketplace, you may be surprised to learn what makes it a high appeal to homeowners looking for a change.

Why it is a preferred option for the home is because of the relative ease to install yourself without the cost of a professional fitter. Whether it is an option of glue down or click together, vinyl tiles are a fun project to get into on your own time and, due to the ability to have pieces cut to size to fit – you are seldom left with frustration.

Vinyl is comfortable underfoot and has plenty of styles to choose from to match your influence.

luxury vinyl flooring

Stain and Scratch Fighter

If you are keen to throw parties for every occasion under the sun, then luxury vinyl flooring is a lifelong option due to its durability and resilience to hard stepping, heels and the odd spilt drink or food.

Come the morning after, you may have a clean-up on your hands, but your flooring will not take long due to its liquid resistance and anti-stain design. You won’t be dealing with nightmares of scratches across your floor due to vinyl’s anti-scratch implementation.

A simple clean with a warm soapy sponge or mop and your floor retains its glossy finish again and again. It is a perfect product for homes with heavy foot traffic.

 

Kitchen Connoisseur

If you like cooking for a crowd, then vinyl tiles in your kitchen are the perfect assistant – no matter how messy things get.

Easy to clean no matter if making spaghetti, curry, pizza or salad, vinyl has your floor safe and stainless from any dropped jars or sauces that typically mark flooring no matter how many times you wash it.

One spill, one wipe and it’s back to its usual look taking no time out of your meal preparations and time to mingle with your guests.

Finding your Style

With vinyl floor tiles and planks you are not limited in selection. Some brands offer popular as well as more diverse styles to choose from and can showcase how they would fit the current feel of the room- as well as match your room fittings or furniture.

No matter what you set out your home to achieve, luxury vinyl flooring provides extra life to your party and gives peace of mind for the morning after.

Cooking with Heroes focuses on 100 regions in which the British Legion has been active over the past century, presenting 100 delicious recipes as well as profiles of 100 military heroes specific to each region including that of Odette Halllowes.

Odette Hallowes (nee Brailly, then Sansom) volunteered to help with the war effort in 1939. As a native French speaker with a knowledge of the country, she was recruited as a special agent in 1942, assisting the French Resistance. Odette was arrested by the Germans in April 1943 facing interrogation and torture at the hands of the concentration camp guards before the camp was liberated by the Allies. For her remarkable bravery she received a George Cross, a Legion of Honour and an MBE.

Recipes with Kimchi were -re-created as amazing British Dishes by the amateur Chefs which was exciting to witness as I’m a huge fan of Oriental Culinary Dishes. Who isn’t a foodie at heart and sometimes I prefer to stay in and whip up my own culinary take out favourites in the kitchen at home.

Before the day concluded, The top 10 recipes were selected and lucky participants invited to the cook-off event to cook in person for the judges. If you watch Master Chef, then this will inspire you to have a go yourself and create your own recipes too.

I had a really pleasant evening and got to go inside one of the most iconic culinary schools in the World and when do you get an opportunity like this to experience culture through cuisine by aspiring Master Chefs.

COCCHI 1891 TRADITIONAL WINE-BASED APERITIFS TO TRY THIS LONDON COCKTAIL WEEK – DID SOMEONE SAY NEGRONI?

If it’s a classic vermouth you’re searching for, look no further than Cocchi 1891! It’s the answer to all your classic cocktail conundrums.

vermouth cocktail recipes

Italian Culture is steeped in food, arts, architecture, family and…Aperitivo! Try Americano Cocchi or Rosa and Enjoy!

Cocchi produces since 1891 “Superb Vermouths Torino for Manhattan and Martini cocktails”

Known all over the world for the tradition and historicity of production, Vermouth di Torino is an aromatized wine born in the 18th century at the foot of the Alps and appreciated by the Royal Court of the Savoy.

Giulio Cocchi had the great idea of establishing authorized retailers where people could taste his products: sparkling winese, Barolo Chinato, Aperitivo Americano and a few distinct Vermouths. In 1913 there were seven Cocchi tasting Bars in Piermonte that soon became twelve.

Vermouth Cocktail Recipes

Vermouth Amaro Cocchi has been created according to the original recipe by Giulio Cocchi where Artemisia was enriched with rhubarb, qassia wood, chiretta and a double fusion of cinchona. The addition of Barolo Chinato to the base wine gives delicately red nuances and a further soft and complex note – totally Cocchi style.

Vermouth Cocktail Recipes

Cocchi since 1891: “ Labor omnia vincit”, work conquers all

Over the years Cocchi have witnessed the evolution of the Vermouth di Torino processing techniques where the new ones have joined the old ones. At present their coexistence continues today to preserve and enhance the traditional production.

Produced according to Guilio Cocchi original recipe, Cochi Americano is recognised in Asti as the aperitif par excellence – a real piece of history of the town. On it’s label the original futurist rooster designed in the 30’s and representing his aperitif function “it awakes the appetite” as well as on of the symbols of the town of Asti.

vermouth cocktail recipes

Vermouth di Torino is known throughout the world for the tradition and history of its production. Its name is inextricably linked to Piedmont and Turin, where in the 1880s a real aristocracy of vermuttieri developed thanks to which, to different degrees and ways, the popularity of Turin Vermouth became international, reaching a great worldwide resonance. It’s a rare “evening vermouth” called Dopo Teatro on the wake of Piedmonts tradition to drink a small cup of cool vermouth with lemon zest in the evening, perhaps after watching a performance in one of the historic theatres of the Savoy capital.

Vermouth di Torino is a collective heritage of Piedmontese people. The Savoy dynasty, kings of Piedmont, was it’s first great promoter and since the end of XVIII century played a relevant role in the success of vermouth, generating flourishing industry which soon made Piedmont the veritable Kingdom of Vermouth.

Asti, where it all began. Today in Asti – the place where Giulio Cocchi 1891 was founded – it is a celebration: San Secondo, patron saint of the city, is celebrated

Cocchi Americano is an aromatized wine created in 1891 by Giulio Cocchi and since then produced without interruption according to the original recipe. The name Americano is both due to the alcohol made bitter amaricato by the addition of herbs and spices and to the American habbit of drinking vermouth with ice and soda. I just found out that Vermouth is best served with cheese which is divine when paired together during Aperitivo.

A toast to the summer, Un brindisi all’estate

vermouth cocktail recipes

Born in Piedmont in the last century, Barolo Chinato soon spread thanks to its refined taste, well balanced between bitter and sweet, and especially for the leading effect on the market of its name “ Barolo”, that immediately positioned it among the noblest products compared to various other types of alcoholic drinks based on cinchona. Spices, together with other aromatized wine, are at the heart of the Cocchi products. It is known a botanical library is used to collect the many herbs and spices to craft the original signature formulas by Giulio Cocchi

During its history, Cocchi has produced some variants to its Aperitivo Americano. The most recent is Cocchi Rosa produced with a based of red wines of Piedmont to which herbs and spices extracts are added in particular gentian, cinchona, citrus zest and rose petals. Cocchi vermouths aromatized and sparkling wines are known all over the world: in Asti, the Cocchi Bar in Piazza Alfieri is a reference point for the city for over a century. Cocchi’s products and brand were spreading worldwide yet at the beginning of the XX century were exported to London, New York, Sydney, Colonial Africa and Venezuela.

Since 1978, Giulio Cocchi is owned and operated by the Bava Family, themselves highly renowned wine producers in Moferrato and Langhe. Today the winery still maintains its artisan character and follows the original recipes, formulated by Giulio Cocchi in 1891, to craft the distinctive wines that have made the Cocchi a cult name. Among the results of the last 30 years, defense of Barolo Chinato from forgetfulness and the re-launch of Vermouth di Torino since 2011 has been the driving force for the rebirth of the top of the range Vermouth di Torino on the international scene.

Traveling to London? Need to stay central? This eco-friendly, luxury apart hotel is located just 5 minutes walk from Waterloo Station

There’s nothing more satisfying than checking into a hotel for a holiday or mini staycation as it’s been a long while since I took an actual vacation. Just last week I headed to the Stow-Away Hotel in South Bank for that well needed staycation one evening. I’ve only managed to get away rarely this year due to the current global pandemic, so welcomed the chance to just get away and make the most of this opportunity to travel. The thrill and excitement of packing a bag once more seemed very appealing to me so I decided to jump on a train to the London Eco Luxury Hotel.

THE CULTURAL DISTRICT OF SOUTHBANK 

(Gifted Press Stay) The hotel is location in London South Banks cultural district, built in 2018 on Lower Marsh Street in the dynamic cultural borough of Southwark. Southbank has seen creativity come alive from frequent fairs and witnessed historical events such as the hotels original land lot being bombed in WWII has been home to world class arts venues The Southbank Centre to BFI film theatre and National Theatre.

Did you know at Stow-Away they have a heat recovery system that recycles the excess heat from the air conditioning system into hot water to help reduce overall energy consumption. It’s good to know that you can sleep comfortably with the aircon on knowing the excess heat is put towards your shower in the morning too.

I was immediately impressed upon arrival to the property with a friendly customer service team on standby and their keyless entry using a Digital App on your smartphone with ease.

I’d say the check-in process was seemingly easy to set up as your room number and booking details were issued by email before arrival and no waiting around which was ideal.

Using the App just open up the key screen by holding it up to the reader on the main front entrance or hotel room door to gain secure access. I stayed in room 203 on the 2nd Floor reachable by the main set of stairs or lift access to all floors. Prices for a Maximum of 2 persons sharing in the Apartments start from £98.10 per night.

I really loved the extremely comfy bed with ultra Hypnos mattresses – the Award winning makers of bespoke, handcrafted and sustainably-made beds & mattresses approved by the HRH the Queen. In hindsight the overall design aesthetics of the room sizes and layout during my stay were effortlessly sleek and contemporay.

But the main highlight of this room had to be the fully equipped kitchen for all your culinary needs as a home away from home. As this stay was personal to me to switch off and relax, I did just that by taking a rain shower and pamper myself with Molton Brown toiletries before bed in the walk in marble tiled bathroom. But, most importantly I wanted to comment how clean the apartment was especially at present where this is essential more than ever before.

I’ve never felt so re-assured with contactless check in, mask, relaxed social distancing rules in ground floor restaurant and bar ‘Unwind’ Pop Up at the Hotel to a spotless Apartment with fresh remote for Smart TV. Rest-assured a lot of careful thought has gone into implementing a solid covid action plan on their website to ensure all guest feel confident they are always protected. It’s so good to be back in hotels again whether you need to stay a for the night, a week, or longer duration, this contemporary eco hotel offers everything you could want to make your stay a pleasant one. I’ve already recommended Stow-Away Hotel to friends and family as a space to work and a space to relax for those interested in booking a Business trip to London? The eco Apartment studios are centrally located in London, which offer sufficient space to work, relax and enjoy.
