After the success and sell out of our 1st batch of Vintner’s Companion in April, we have spent the last number of weeks fine tuning the blend for this release.

It is the product of many months’ work and the coming together of minds between ourselves and Chef Cúán Green, formally of Noma and Bastible.

The Vintner’s Companion is a natural wine alternative. An alcohol-free beverage to savour. Our aim was to develop a fermented drink that looks and feels like a wine but without the Wednesday morning guilt. And so here it is: a sophisticated and fresh beverage with the mouthfeel of a well-made wine, minus the hangover. The flavour is smooth with smoky undertones, bruised apple, and toasted butter. Deliciously aromatic and nutty, it’s made with organic produce and brewed in Dublin.

We have been testing our product over the last couple of months, bridging together a number of techniques used in the food industry and the beverage world. What is so wonderful about collaborations is the exchange of knowledge between two parties, and working with Cúán has brought his knowledge of local ingredients (often foraged) and techniques into our world of tea and fermentation.
