Unlocking Nature’s Medicine Cabinet with No1 Botanicals.
It’s January and as the chill sets in, many of us are looking for ways to boost our immunity and stay healthy this winter.
Following on from the success of No1 Rosemary Water, No1 Botanicals have added nine new and unique single extract herbal waters to their range, ensuring that you can channel nature’s super powers as the temperature drops.
The first of it’s kind, the range uses both hot and cold extraction to preserve the active compounds of all its super herbs just as they are in nature. It has also been authenticated by world-leading experts at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.
Founded by David Spencer-Percival, No 1 Botanicals was created after a life-changing trip to Acciaroli, a tiny hamlet with a record number of centenarians. Scientists descended on the town and noted their consumption of rosemary and the health benefits it brought. David read about their discovery and created No1 Rosemary Water, the first single extract botanical drink, to try to capture the herb’s goodness and make it easy for everyone to enjoy it.
The addition to the range of basil, fennel, mint, juniper, thyme, lemon verbena, olive leaf, meadowsweet and sage has added a series of drinks profiles and flavours that have never been captured before. From the fragrant juniper to the earthy nature of fennel, No1 Botanicals are all delicate, aromatic and completely natural - and at their best when served simply over ice. Showcasing the power of herbs, the drinks appeal as much to the flavour-seeker as to the health conscious. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re sugar, preservative and sweetener-free and are never contained in plastic.
