12 sophisticated soft drinks for Dry January

The London Essence Rhubarb & Cardamom Soda

Another recent addition to the adult soft drinks sphere, The London Essence sells tonics and sodas in beautiful, Art Deco-inspired bottles.

Light and low calorie, the brand was founded in 2016 and takes inspiration from The London Essence Company, which thrived in the late 19th century, creating “exquisite essences for the capital’s perfume, confectionary and drinks industry”, so the story goes.

Fast forward to 2016, and The London Essence 2.0 was quick to win favour with some of London’s top mixologists, including The Savoy’s former head bartender Erik Lorincz, who loves their versatility in cocktails.

In addition to a plain soda water designed to be paired with whisky, the company makes a pair of flavoured sodas: a pale pink, subtly spicy Rhubarb & Cardamom expression made with distilled cardamom essence, and a refreshing, floral Grapefruit & Lemon Verbena soda, both of which can either be enjoyed on their own or with whisky and white wine respectively.
