Elfie® is a new brand of grown-up drinks from the Countryside. Traditional soft drinks with an enchanting twist of Botanical and herbal extracts, for an adult palate.
With flavours like Raspberry, Rhubarb, and Elderberry, our recipes also include some surprising folklore favourites you may not instantly recognise. As dry and complex as a glass of wine, as refreshing as a cup of tea – we love our Elfie, and we’re confident you’ll love it too.
100% Natural, No Alcohol, No added sugar.
We’ve all been there. That moment when you really fancy a glass of dry wine, or perhaps a beer, but you’re driving, or have to go back to work, or are simply avoiding alcohol at the moment. The choices are usually pretty Desperate,- Full of gas and sugar, or so artificially sweetened that they set your teeth on edge; so you go end up with that old desperation purchase: – “Lime and Soda”.
We wanted to create a natural unsweetened drink which is a bit more complex, a bit more adult, with a long subtle finish that leaves you looking forward to the next.
Healthy Herbs and Folklore Remedies?
The name “Elfie” comes from the use of folklore ingredients. It didn’t come from the pun with healthy, but at only 45-55 calories a bottle, (- less than half the calories of a standard* glass of wine), no alcohol, no fizzy gas, no added sugar and no artificial anything; Elfie is certainly a healthier choice.
Elfie’s recipes come from an innocent time when people roamed the Woodlands, Moors and Meadows of Ancient Britain, and everyone believed in the power of herbs, spices and perhaps a little bit of Elven magic too.
We can’t promise that the botanicals and herbal extracts in Elfie’s recipes will make you live longer; or that the Meadowsweet extract will cure your hangover (apparantly it was the original source of aspirin!). You’ll certainly recognise the taste of some of them, and that’s why we’ve chosen them, but we’re not going to tell you which, so you probably won’t be quite able to put your finger on it.
Even today, magical stories like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Game of Thrones carry a special place in our hearts. And when you walk in the countryside, it’s easy to catch a fleeting glimpse or scent of Elfie – just out of the corner of your eye, the rustle of leaves, a breath of fresh air, perhaps a hint of spice – or is that just your imagination playing tricks on you ?
