As well as getting out and about visiting foodie places, we’re lucky in that we also get sent local produce to try. Let me introduce you to Sea Arch – an award winning non-alcoholic gin, made locally here in Devon. I was recently #gifted some items to try and wanted to share more about this award winning product and its origins.
You may have already seen Sea Arch in your local bar, café or restaurant, wine merchant or even farm shop. Perhaps you’ve already enjoyed a Sea & T or tried it at an event. It has a distinctive sea blue bottle and is really quite delicious.
It’s an alternative to alcohol, it’s sugar free, calorie free and has the distinctive gin inspired flavours. Sea Arch is made using traditional distillation techniques and has natural botanicals including sea kelp, samphire, cardamom and blood orange. The alcohol is then gently removed to create a lovely refreshing alcohol free spirit – as they say it’s #MoreBeautifulWithout.
You may not wish to go fully alcohol free, but this is a great alternative to your normal mid-week tipple perhaps, or in between indulgences over Easter or the holidays for example, instead of sugary alternatives.
As well as asking co-founder Sarah Yates, 10 Questions about Sea Arch, I have enjoyed trying the drinks in different ways and whilst out and about, and have included the alcohol free cocktails (or mocktails) thanks to their recipes that I’ve shared further down.
I enjoyed a Sea Arch Coastal Juniper drink with tonic water (a Sea & T) on Budleigh beach to get the true Sea Arch vibe; in fact you can drink it anywhere!
As well as the Coastal Juniper bottle, Sea Arch also make ready to drink cans – RTDs – in two flavours: Sea & T and Rose Sea & T, perfect to drink at home straight from the fridge or to take when on a picnic or down to the beach! I did just that and took them to Scotland to enjoy on holiday – by the side of the loch and the sea.
I am also enjoying drinking Sea Arch as part of my healthy lifestyle, being calorie free, I get to enjoy a Sea & T without any syns!
Here are the alcohol free cocktails I enjoyed, based on two of the ten recipes on the Sea Arch website:
Light Sea Breeze
Fill an ice shaker with ice and into that add:
50ml Sea Arch Coastal Juniper
