The London Essence Company Focus On Low Calorie Cocktails

The London Essence Company has partnered with three top London bartenders to create a collection of exceptionally light, low calorie cocktails for summer.

In bars across the country the amount of customers concerned about sugar consumption has been visibly rising over the past few years. In a recent CGA Mixed Drinks Report (2017) it was shown that the health and wellbeing trend is driving the popularity of low calorie cocktails, with 27% of customers choosing a low calorie option at least once a month and a third preferring to order low calorie cocktails over standard serves.

BarLifeUK Drinks - The London Essence Company Focus On Low Calorie CocktailsThe London Essence Company are embracing this with UK Brand Ambassador, Andrea Brulatti, pointing out “We are now seeing an increasing number of customers looking for low calorie as well as low ABV alternatives, which don’t compromise on the elegance and quality that drinking traditional cocktails provides.” 

To celebrate this The London Essence Company have collaborated with three leading bartenders. They have each created their own interpretation of exceptionally light cocktails through the Exceptionally Light Spring/Summer ’18 Drinks Collection.

BarLifeUK has interviewed each of these bartenders about their serves which are 120 calories or less and use one of The London Essence Company’s mixers, which are crafted with signature distilled essences to allow the chosen spirit/liqueur to shine through. The range includes:

  • Classic London Tonic Water
  • Grapefruit and Rosemary Tonic Water
  • Bitter Orange and Elderflower Tonic Water
  • Delicate Ginger Ale
  • Perfectly Spiced Ginger Beer
  • Soda Water
