t's the end of a long day and an even
longer week… how do you relax? Likely
you're reaching for the nearest glass of
wine - despite promises to lead a healthier
lifestyle this year or even to let yesterday's
hangover nally settle down. Stop right
there: perhaps now is the time to honour
those promises and try a sophisticated tipple
without any of the unwanted consequences.
Let us introduce you to Azizi, the nonalcoholic
liqueurs that are perfect for creating
the ultimate unwind drinks without a
headache in sight.
All the fl avour
Realising the demand for re ned booze-free
drinks and weary of the poor choice of sweet,
sugary alternatives, Azizi founders Debbie
Peers-Smith and Liz Harwood decided to
create something for people who are both
style and health conscious. When developing
the recipes, the team made a particular point
of maintaining the mouthfeel and full avour
of the product's boozy counterparts.
As the mastermind behind the liquids,
Peers-Smith says, 'Do we want to get drunk
all the time? No! But we do want something
to unwind with at the end of the day that is
still delicious and is also alcohol-free.'
By using ingredients such as hops - for
that instantly recognisable bitter avour -
as well as valerian - for natural relaxation -
Azizi o ers up a drink with all of the taste,
mouthfeel and fun without any of the guilt.
It's available in two expressions.
Azizi Classic Ruby is a delightful blend of
pomegranate, elder ower and lime, the three
avours blending together to create a lightly
sweet and beautiful taste. But what sets Ruby
apart from other cordials and liqueurs you
may have had in the past is that Azizi adds
a carefully selected blend of herbs to give
UNWINDthe drink extra dimension and depth. This is a
grown-up experience in a glass.
Azizi Classic Gold is drier, with a oral-yetbitter
taste - and one seriously incredible
nose. The blend is comprised of lime, mint
and elder ower, plus that signature herbal
blend to fully enhance your sips.
Adam Gray, a Michelin-starred chef and
advocate of healthy living, has become
an ambassador for Azizi. Of the partnership
he says, "It has been fantastic working with
Azizi - not
only in creating
in developing truly unique food recipes,
incorporating Azizi Classic Gold and Azizi
Classic Ruby into various savoury and sweet
dishes with amazing results."
Azizi Classic costs £9.95 per bottle, and is a
