A complete kit for making your own apple cider vinegar spritzers.
Drinking ACV as a spritzer is a great alternative to a gin and tonic. It's sharp, complex and delicious and completely alcohol free.
This kit brings together three local producers. Our ACV is matched with pure, raw and natural Sussex honey from Paynes (340g), and a bottle of sparkling mineral water (750ml) from Pear Tree Well, based just 500m from the cidery. This kit couldn't be more local, more natural nor freer from additives.
To make an ACV spritzer add sparkling mineral water to a shot of AVC and sweeten to taste with honey. Enjoy over ice!
Pear Tree Well
The mineral water comes from a source 120 feet deep and confined beneath a 5ft thick layer of rock. No surface water can possibly contaminate it. When the water is drawn from the well, it is the first time it has seen the light of day for many thousands of years, truly pure and unadulterated. The water is naturally rich in minerals, which gives it a fuller, rounder flavour.
