The Everleaf drinks company was founded by conservation biologist Paul Matthew, who has also spent time as a bartender. It’s a perfect combination to develop a range of aperitifs based on the natural world but with flavours designed with the customer in mind. Indeed, he has created a range of three non-alcoholic aperitifs to suit the mood of any discerning alcohol-free drinker.

According to the blurb on the bottle, the key elements in this drink are saffron, Madagascan vanilla, and orange blossom. For me, though, the aroma was distinctly liquoricy. The flavour was bittersweet: the vanilla gave a nice sweetness, and then the longer-lasting bitterness kicks in and stays around even after the drink has gone. The orange and spiciness of the drink also puts me in mind of Christmas. It feels warm yet inviting and very drinkable. I feel like it makes my insides glow and made me have that warm happy feeling. Invest in some decent tonic, get a slice of orange, a little ice, and you are good to go!

Overall, I give 3 out of 5. I like it and it is well thought-out and complex, but my heart belongs to Everleaf Marine.
