Belvoir Shiraz Without the Hangover
If you favour a more full-bodied red, Belvoir’s non-alcoholic blend of single strength Shiraz red grape juice with elderberry and blackcurrant juices, and a hint of black peppercorn and vanilla extracts, really hits the mark.
It has a very ‘grown-up’ taste with a nose of blackcurrant, a touch of vanilla and a semi-sweet fruity flavour with an astringent, slightly mouth drying finish and a hint of spice typically associated with a Shiraz red wine. Just like the alcoholic variety this rich dark red alcohol-free version slips down nicely with steak or boeuf bourguignon.
Handmade drinks from the heart of the countryside
Belvoir Fruit Farms nestles deep in the English countryside in the idyllic Vale of Belvoir, where they’ve been making fruit cordials and presses since 1984, pressing fresh fruit and infusing flowers to mix with spring water.
Renowned for their elderflower drinks, they still use the same elderflower recipe developed by co-founder Mary Manners all those years ago. Originally, all the elderflowers were handpicked from bushes growing around Lord and Lady John Manners’ garden. The whole family helped to make the first batch of elderflower cordial, chopping the lemons and stirring the syrup. Lord John then popped the 88 cases of drinks into the back of his car and went round local farm shops, persuading the owners to buy a bottle here and there.
Today, demand is so high that Belvoir calls on the local community to help with the harvest, picking flowers from their own 90 acres of orchards and from hedgerows in the surrounding countryside.
To achieve the unique taste of Belvoir’s elderflower products, it’s essential to use nothing but fresh flowers. Peverel Manners, Lord John’s son, says: “The secret of a really good elderflower cordial is to use masses of flowers that have been picked in the sunshine when they’re warm and heavy with yellow pollen, then get them into the vat within three hours. This gives the drink its delicate floral taste.”
Over the years, the company has expanded its beverage range to include a wide range of flavours and the brand now produces more than 40 products, many of which have won multiple awards. Belvoir Fruit Farms is still owned and run by the Manners family.
