For the inaugural celebration of National Hiking Day on November 17th, two non-alcoholic brands unite to craft the ‘TalonWave Wine.’
This delightful offering aims to inspire everyone to embrace the outdoors and overcome the winter gloom festively.
In celebration of National Hiking Day on Friday 17th November, Edinburgh’s Talonmore is teaming up with Wavelength Drinks to create a brand new festive non-alcoholic cocktail, the ‘TalonWave Wine’ – a warming winter mulled wine alternative which can be easily crafted at home, or outside.
Talonmore & Wavelength Drinks supports the importance of health & wellbeing and advocates the outdoors lifestyle. With nature playing a key part in both brand mantras, the partnership aims to encourage people to get outside, ensuring balance in everyday life.
On Talonmore’s website, the companies are offering a special bundle deal with 10% off both brands up until New Year’s Day, for consumers to purchase bottles and make the delicious, easy-to-make winter cocktail for themselves.
Talonmore’s distinctive taste is fired by the spice of ginger and Assam tea whilst complemented with malty notes and fruit sweetness. Pairing with the zing and freshness of the hibiscus, lavender and orange & pink grapefruit zest found in WaveLength’s Ruby Non-Alcoholic Aperitif, the ‘TalonWave Wine’ is a gorgeous fruit-forward nod to the classic festive favourite mulled wine.
– Measure 50ml Talonmore NA Spirit, 50ml Wave Length Ruby NA Aperitif, then 100ml Hot Water
– Pour all liquid ingredients into tempered glass or mug
– Stir until all ingredients are incorporated
– Garnish with Slice of Orange
– Enjoy, indoors or out!
Spending time in nature has become a key topic across the nation, with time outdoors known to boost physical and mental health in a range of ways. According to a recent study* that included data from 19,906 participants, spending at least 120 minutes in nature per week can significantly boost health and well-being.
Talonmore is a Scottish-based, family-run business established in Edinburgh in 2020. Lewis Kennedy, 25-year-old Managing Director, recently made it to the final of Scottish Edge, where over 160 applicants enter to impress a board of seasoned business experts.
Using a mix of rooted and plant-based ingredients and inspired by Edinburgh’s festival spirit and history of innovation, Talonmore was created to provide an exceptional alcohol-free drink that can be enjoyed without compromising health, control and taste. Choosing brewing methods of manufacture, rather than distilling, Talonmore has developed a unique beverage that ensures flavour is at the forefront, replicating the experience of drinking a dark spirit.
Talonmore can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, with a mixer or in a multitude of non-alcoholic cocktails, such as the ‘TalonWave Wine’. In 2022, Talonmore was awarded Silver at the International Wine and Spirits Competition scoring an impressive 92 points out of 100. The latest batch of Talonmore includes a new look & feel, with an upgraded label and eye-catching flagship red foil.
Similarly to Talonmore, Wavelength’s process starts by brewing, but also fermenting. Tapping into decades of experience, Wavelength’s brewers create the perfect balance of sweet, sour, and spice. The result is delicious flavour, inviting aroma, and lasting aftertaste. Fermentation takes time, but time brings rich flavours, deep aromas and complexity. Like waiting for the perfect wave, it takes patience and time.
Founder, Eddie Lofthouse, has a vision to take a stand for flavour by making exceptional non-alcoholic fermented drinks. He brought together his knowledge of brewing beer to brewing premium, non-alcoholic liquids. Wavelength produces wonderfully complex non-alcoholic drinks that actually taste good.
“Talonmore has been a fan of the Wavelength brand for a while now. I’ve always been really interested to see if the flavours and liquid of the two brands work together, and they do! The team at Wavelength are delightful, we hope this is the first of many partnerships.Lewis Kennedy, Managing Director at Talonmore Drinks Company
“Talonmore has always, and always will be, a supporter of the outdoors lifestyle, and the importance of it for health & wellbeing. We’re encouraging everyone to get those hiking boots on and head up that hill for National Hiking Day. We guarantee it will be worth it, with the reward of a ‘TalonWave Wine’ at the summit.
“The flavoursome fruitiness of both liquids match together perfectly. Talonmore offers the malty notes while the zing of Wavelength creates a conjuring of festive flavours for the tastebuds. Garnishing with an orange makes the serve that touch more festive. Definitely a quick-and-simple cocktail to impress family & friends over the Christmas period too.”
“We are really excited about this collaboration with Talonmore. The two liquids combined create a delicious drink that is perfect for winter gatherings with friends which make long lasting memories.”Wavelength Drinks Founder, Founder, Eddie Lofthouse
With over 8 million adults in the UK looking to reduce their alcohol intake, Talonmore is designed to shake up the non-alcoholic drinks market by championing the adventurous lifestyle that could normally be sacrificed with traditional alcohol.
