A Gentleman’s Guide to British Products: The Driver’s Tipple

Love the taste of gin, but are designated driver for the evening? The Driver’s Tipple is one of the newest premium non-alcoholic drink brands making a stir in the UK.

To celebrate our love of British products, we’ll be focusing on some of our favourite products which every gentleman must know about.

If you’ve been named designated driver for the night or are trying to extend dry January throughout the year, then you might be interested to hear about The Driver’s Tipple.

Non-alcoholic drinks never tasted so good

Back in September 2018, we had the pleasure of sampling a brand new drink, The Driver’s Tipple, at Blenheim Palace for the prestigious Salon Prive Concours d’Elegance event.

Created by former British racing driver Hamish Gordon, this wonderful drink is the distinctively non-alcoholic British alternative to gin.

“Having given up drinking alcohol, I noticed a distinct lack of decent drink alternatives that are not overly sweet and sickly, and also taste good. I’ve always enjoyed a good gin and tonic and so it’s been really exciting to develop a drink with all the flavour of a traditional gin, just without the effects of alcohol.”

Hamish Gordon, Founder of The Driver’s Tipple

Distilled in London with all the flavours of a classic London Dry Gin, it’s made from classic gin botanicals including prominent notes of juniper with ginger, angelica, cardamom, grapefruit and coriander.

As a result, drinkers are treated to a beautiful non-alcoholic gin which doesn’t compromise the taste.

What’s more, its ingredients are completely sugar-free! So if you want to avoid the yo-yo effects sugar has on your body, or you’re simply seeking a health-conscious alternative to a cocktail, you can enjoy a glass of The Driver’s Tipple without feeling a drop of guilt.

As well as the taste, the branding itself oozes premium and luxury – something every gentleman should always be very aware of.

The 70cl bottles of The Driver’s Tipple incorporate the witty and dry British humour in abundance, coming in two different designs. Illustrated by renowned cartoonist Bryn Parry OBE, you can choose from a male or female driver.

Not a chequered flag in sight for this British product

Launched in September 2018, this premium drink has started to really race ahead of its competition and is already turning heads within the food and beverage industry.

It’s now stocked in multiple pubs, restaurants, hotels and shops around the country – including Harrods!

You may have also heard Hamish on BBC Radio Oxford in January 2019 or seen them exhibiting at nationwide events.

One thing’s for sure, this brilliant new tipple is an absolute must for every gentleman who loves a sophisticated drink for socialising, but wants to maintain appearances.

You can just picture it now – you’re suited up, sporting your favourite pair of Percy Strides, conversing with acquaintances and sipping on the sweet taste of The Driver’s Tipple.
