juice of these valleys
Our 32cl bottle is now designed and made to our own exacting demands. We did this to overcome a problem with breakages in production - this one is designed to better withstand the pressures of being a Luscombe. It is a little taller and looks a tad more elegant.
We have also evolved the labels, bringing the family together and making them all clearer, which I hope also reflects the attention to detail that goes into a Luscombe drink.
Of course, there is one thing that hasn't changed - what's inside the bottle. We still refuse to compromise when it comes to our recipes. We use nothing but the best fruit handled with great care.
We hope you like these small changes. If my team can help with anything, please call me on 01364 64 30 36.
Our Sicilian Lemonade has just been voted 'best organic cold beverage 2012' by the Soil Association; it's a recipe the judges termed "fresh, light and not too sharp or sweet". The accolade underlines our mantra of strict attention to detail and using the purest raw organic ingredients.

We received a ringing endorsement from South West consumers on Monday night when we were crowned Best Drinks Producer at food magazine’s Reader Awards.
"What a great start to 2012.” said Gabriel David. “The best kind of awards are those where the public vote. These are the people drinking our juices and voting with their taste buds. We are thrilled.
“The team and I work tirelessly searching for the finest ingredients, refining our classic recipes, and looking for new blends and twists to ensure that our drinks lead the way in taste and flavour.”

If you’re avoiding alcohol this month, here are some tips from Fiona Beckett over at the Guardian website.
According to Stefan Chomka, our Hot Ginger Beer is a top 10 drink for Winter.
“Ginger beer is the drink du jour and Luscombe's fiery non-alcoholic version is one of the best around. Not only is it a blessing for drivers and non-drinkers tired of having make do with sickly sweet softies, it's equally good when used in cocktails. Lashings of Dark 'n' Stormies anyone?”

We’re really rather chuffed that our Hot Ginger Beer is the only non-alcoholic drink to have made it into Anthony Rose’s list of the 50 best wines.
‘No fuss’ – that is the ethos behind our new Raspberry Lemonade recipe. The team has been busy refining one of our firm favourites, reducing the time it takes to get the raspberries from the bush into the bottle. The result? A lemonade that is even zingier and fresher on the palate.
Once picked, the raspberries are pressed and carefully blended with our Sicilian lemons, spring water and touched with Madagascan vanilla and a tad of sparkle. There are no additives, colourings, enhancers, preservatives or short cuts of any kind, meaning the Luscombe Raspberry Lemonade retains the delicate character of the fruit.
A great substitute for a fruity rosé, it is the perfect companion to spring/summer alfresco dining or to toast that special person. Match Luscombe’s Raspberry Lemonade with game terrine, smoked duck breast, smoked chicken or smoked venison, cheeses such as Brie and salads that include berries. It’s also great with American-style cheesecake, particularly if topped with fresh berries, and the Scottish dessert cranachan with raspberries.
