Big-day gifting ideas from Yvonne Ellen
With careful eyes on tight-budgets, it's easy to forget the charm of gift-giving but with careful planning...
Luscombe has always been known for its outstanding ginger beers and the Luscombe Passionate Ginger Beer has recently been named Food Drink Devon's 'Drink Product of the Year' in the 2023 awards.
Luscombe Passionate Ginger Beer is crafted using only the finest organic Peruvian fresh root ginger, milled on-site at Luscombe's farm. Blended with organic Sicilian lemons, carbonated Dartmoor spring water and organic passion fruit juice, it is perfect for those looking for something a little different. It sits alongside the world-famous Luscombe Hot Ginger Beer and Cool Ginger Beer.
Founder and owner, Gabriel David, is renowned for his pursuit of perfection and no-compromise approach to creating an elegant and multi-award-winning range of drinks that use the very finest organic ingredients and Dartmoor spring water. On winning the award, Gabriel says: "We have always set out to create a range of ginger beers which stand apart from anything else you can drink and this award does confirm this position. Taste is everything and we feel confident that Luscombe hits a pinnacle in this aspect."
This organic drink brings together the spice of ginger with the sweetness of passion fruit, offering a luxurious twist on a classic. Simply serve over ice, as Luscombe Passionate Ginger Beer has already been blended to perfection, and pair with a wide range of foods, both savoury and sweet. Luscombe is proud to have been the first drinks brand to have gained organic accreditation from the Soil Association and, like all of the drinks in the range, Passionate Ginger Beer contains no artificial additives, sweeteners or concentrates. It's available in a box of 12 x 27cl, for £26.50 from https://luscombe.co.uk and there's free delivery on all orders over £60.
Awarded a Royal Warrant, Luscombe has produced beautifully crafted drinks on a farm in Devon since 1975. Today, the range includes organic fruit juices, crushes, bubblies, tonic waters and mixers plus a traditional organic Devon cider. Another recent launch, perfect for weddings was Luscombe Sicilian Citrus Crush created in honour of Luscombe founder Gabriel's grandmother's favourite non-alcoholic tipple of orange juice and bitter lemon. A lightly sparkling citrus classic, it's crafted using the juice of organic Sicilian oranges and lemons grown in the volcanic soils of Mount Etna, blended with their source of Dartmoor spring water.
