Pourwell April Box - Birdsong

For a week the sun shone, the garden furniture came out of hibernation and we even managed to mark the Spring solstice with the first BBQ of the year!! Spring is in full bloom, the bees are buzzing and birdsong soundtracking our days has been the inspiration for this month's serve. With al fresco living and birds on our mind it’s fitting that this month's spirit of the month is the smoking hot Mockingbird, the UK’s first non alcoholic Tequila alternative.

normalising sobriety 1x1

Normalising Sobriety

A large part of our culture in the UK is constructed by the consumption of food and drink. This can prove giving up alcohol to be extremely challenging even though becoming sober is a very desirable idea for many people. A recent figure from drink aware UK reveals that 80% of people over the age of 16 years old drink alcohol in the UK, leaving a mere 20% of adults that don’t drink alcohol. This is just 1 in 5 adults.

Alcohol and Nutrition

As a nutritionist in Central London I’m used to having to find ways to accommodate alcohol intake within a client’s lifestyle of work lunches, team drinks and dining out. While it is possible to accommodate some level of alcohol intake alongside most fitness goals, it’s overconsumption remains one of the biggest barriers preventing clients reaching their goals (particularly if that goal is weight loss.)

Why are alcohol-free spirits so expensive?

So why are alcohol-free spirits so expensive? Well, it comes down to five main factors: research and development costs; the cost of quality ingredients; high production costs; economies of scale not yet fully realised; and that the market hasn’t yet reached maturity.

How alcohol ruins your sleep quality

Sleep is essential if we are to function properly. Lack of sleep doesn’t just mean we feel weary the next day, it leaves us struggling to concentrate or think clearly. Everything seems more difficult to do or to understand, making decisions can feel like an impossible task, our judgement is affected and we can suffer from uncharacteristic mood swings. It impacts on work performance and how we carry out day-to-day tasks, like driving.

We managed to grab an hour with him to talk about his book, his journey from the corporate world into bartending, and his new alcohol-free botanical drink, Proteau.
