Botonique claims to be a new and unique British-made natural, dry, sparkling non-alcoholic drink alternative for lovers of wine.

It has been made by wine merchant Hilary Marsh, who has perceived the growing demand for a good non-alcoholic beverage with the complexity and long finish associated with white wine.

Best served chilled in a champagne flute, Botonique doesn’t include grapes or alcohol. Instead, notes of herbs, spices and citrus blended with sparking water and pear juice create a flavour reminiscent of dry white wine, gin and vermouth.

It is said to contain the beneficial elements of Prelixir, a blend of vitamins, minerals and amino acids which alcohol is known to deplete. This means, claims the producer, that Botonique is able to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, alkalising, detoxifying and hydrating benefits.

Botonique has no added sugar, artificial sweeteners, flavours, colours or preservatives.
