After years of working and playing hard, founder Lucy yearned for something refreshing and reinvigorating to drink, but without the ABV, calorie or sugar content of the usual alcoholic drinks on offer.

"I set to work on creating delicious, lightly alcoholic drinks, to fill this gap. Growing up on a farm where I had always made elderflower cordial, the hedgerows seemed like the right place to start. My first experiments were delicious but hazardous, with explosions galore”

The drinks are now perfected and the result is Hard Tonic 4%, botanically infused with flavours from the hedgerow, which has by design – less alcohol, less sugar and fewer calories for a sophisticated and distinctively British drink without compromise.
