2. JHG Pomegranate Juice

Jan Harmsgat Historic Farm and Country House, known for their single-block wines, have expanded their product offering to include a gorgeous pomegranate juice. As food trends continue to embrace healthier options, pomegranates are good choice as they are rich in antioxidants. The JHG pomegranate juice is derived from the whole fruit, with no sugar, colouring or flavouring added, and is available in a 2L organic-style box with a shelf life of six months. You can enjoy the juice on its own, or use it in as mixer in a cocktail.

4. Almost Zero Dealcoholised Wine 

Van Loveren have created a wine that you can enjoy guilt-free. Almost Zero is a dealcoholised winecrafted from Sauvignon Blanc. As the name indicates, it has virtually no alcohol in it (less than 0.5%) and contains 75% less kilojoules than a normal glass of wine. A fruit-forward wine, Almost Zero hits you with flavours of apple, litchi and a little citrus. This makes it a perfect companion to seafood dishes and salads. It's best served chilled or with ice.
