Coffee drinkers can now enjoy Nescafé Gold Organic, made using 100% organic Arabica beans. Its flavour is smooth, fruity flavour with notes of sweet and sour citrus fruits, alongside the reassurance many get from selecting organic.
Neil Stephens who heads up Nescafé in the UK and Ireland said: “This is our first organic offering. Demand for organic products continues to grow in Britain and remains a big factor for many consumers, particularly those interested in the environmental benefits.”
Makers of organic goods aim to produce food and crops using natural substances and processes and the method has grown in popularity in recent decades.
Nescafe Gold Organic is available exclusively from Sainsbury’s .
London's multi-award winning Montague on the Gardens hotel in Bloomsbury, is launching Mix It this spring. Building on the success of their seasonally-themed drinking and dining installations, Mix It is an interactive and unlimited two-hour cocktail making experience.
For two months, the hotel's garden terrace area will be transformed into a pop up bar and cocktail enthusiasts can create their own drinks using the unlimited complement of the hotel's selection of provided spirits, mixers and garnishes with the help - if required - of their dedicated bartender. Alternatively guests can ask the bartender to mix their personally designed drinks for them or order a cocktail from a bespoke menu specially created for Mix It by drinks producer, Pernod Ricard.
Mix It costs £39 pp and food from the bar menu can be ordered with the drinks at an additional cost.
