Cawston Press is known for it's range of high quality pressed juices. They've recently launched two sparkling drinks in cans inspired by quintessential British garden flavours; Cloudy Apple and Rhubarb. These are proudly "grown up" drinks, offering a different take on the canned drink, which are usually high in sugar and additives. Each Cawston Press canned drink is made from pressed fruit juices (not from concentrate) that are mixed with sparkling water for a lighter alternative.
Cloudy Apple: This drink has only three ingredients listed; Pressed Apple Juice (78%), Sparkling Water, and Vitamin C. That's it, nothing else! I don't think I have ever seen a canned drink to have such simple ingredients and especially one without any type of added sugar or sweeteners. The result is a flavoursome and natural tasting apple drink with a lovely light sparkling quality, that is not too fizzy. The apple flavour is crisp but still very sweet and enjoyable.
Rhubarb: This was my favourite of the two drinks, only because rhubarb is such an unusual flavour as a sparkling drink. The ingredients here are; Sparkling Water, Pressed Rhubarb Juice (12%), Pressed Apple Juice (8%), Sugar, Malic Acid, and Vitamin C. The rhubarb taste is absolutely delicious here, a perfectly fruity balance of sweetness and tartness. It really does remind me of all my favourite rhubarb desserts, but as a drink!
Overall, I would highly recommend the new Cawston Press sparkling drinks range. I enjoyed their fresh fruity flavours and will be hunting down my nearest stockist!
