Idyll is about rewilding drinks, in its most fundamental sense this means acknowledging how co-dependent we are on nature, especially in the hospitality industry. At the heart of idyll are key concepts such as rewilding, regenerative farming and sustainable foraging. Our aim is to work towards creating a carbon negative framework for the hospitality industry.
pine forest soda
Working with a sustainable foraging company, who harvest our douglas fir and scots pine, we have created a clear carbonated soda, that captures the essence of a pine forest.
It is delicious as a substitute for tonic water in a GnT, in a whisky highball or just served as is.
However, you choose to drink it, it is a delicious and unique experience.
We also donate a 10p from every can sold to UK charity Rewilding Britain.
wild apple soda
infused with hogweed seeds
& sweet woodruff
The UK has an abundance of apple orchards, with some the best quality fruit in the world. Despite this, according to some estimates up to 800,000 apples are wasted in the UK per day. It’s in that spirit that we have chosen to champion British seasonal apples in our second wild soda.
Working directly with small scale farmers we steam distil seasonal British apples to pasteurise the juice, making it stable for use in sodas. We add a touch high quality cider vinegar sourced from Oliver’s in Herefordshire and to this we add an infusion of hogweed seeds and sweet woodruff, two wild botanicals that compliment the aromas and flavour of apple.
The combination is refreshing and complex, like bitting into a fresh apple infused with cardamon, coriander seed, orange zest and a hint of hay.
