Cawston Press Juice Review

We were sent a delightful selection of lovely juices to sample.  

The Sparkling Apple and Sparking Apple Ginger Beer have an RRP of £2.79 and make lovely thirst quenching drinks for the hotter weather we are now having.  My boys could not get enough of the fizzy apple but the ginger was not for them (perfect as it meant more for us grownups!).

Hubbie loved the Apple and Elderflower he thought it had a refreshing zing and the two flavours made for a fine contrast.  He took the whole carton (1 litre £2.09) to work, I asked did anyone else get a taste but he said it was too nice to share!

I took along the Sparkling Apple Ginger Beer on a picnic and me and another mum felt quite dignified drinking it in the sunshine watching the children play happily.  It felt much more sophisticated than our usual trick of pinching a fruit shoot each off them!  My friend loved the taste and for her the apple was quite prominent, I also liked the taste but found the ginger featured most!  But the end result was we both liked it very much, even if our taste buds are telling us different stories!  It really does hit the back of our throats; afterwards I saw there was a hint of Chilli, which might have explained the extra bite in the drink.

It is encouraging seeing so many juice combinations with apple.  We were sent the Elderflower and Rhubarb, but there is also Carrot and Beetroot.  Definitely worth trying if you like new pleasing combinations for your palate.  The Apple and Rhubarb was my personal favourite, it made for a great grouping.  But I am quite partial to Rhubarb anyway (Rhubarb and custard sweets yum!).  I think most people will find a flavour to enjoy here.

I am impressed that these are the only juice that comes from apples pressed within 48 hours of being picked.  I think you can tell the difference too; it’s a very fresh refreshing drink.

The juices have no artificial sweeteners; preservatives or colourings so would make a healthy family drink.  A 250ml glass is an easy way to get one of your five a day (something I do struggle to do for myself as I am so busy making sure the children do I tend to neglect me!).

Available to buy from various stockists including Waitrose, Ocado, Tesco and Sainsbury’s, you can also find out more from the website
