Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How is Everleaf made?
We use different methods of extraction according to the plant, so that we get the best flavour in the most sustainable way. Vetiver for example, uses steam distillation, while voodoo lily is dried and ground to a fine powder. The 18 plants are then blended together by hand during a 48 hour process before being bottled.
Does Everleaf contain any alcohol?
Some of our botanical extractions use alcohol as it’s such a great solvent, but Everleaf is less than 0.5% alcohol, so under EU and US regulations, is classified as non-alcoholic. When used in a spritz, this drops to around 0.1%. For comparison, ripe bananas and orange juice can contain as much as 0.5% alcohol.
How many calories are in an Everleaf Spritz?
A large Everleaf Spritz contains 48 calories – 26kcal from 50ml of Everleaf and 23kcal from 150ml of light tonic.
If you prefer your drinks a little sweeter, you can mix with regular tonic which brings the total to 67kcal per 200ml spritz.
Does Everleaf contain sugar?
Yes, Everleaf contains unrefined organic cane sugar. We tried lots of alternatives, including agave syrup (not very sustainable) and honey (not vegan), as well as sweeteners (which all impacted the taste in a very negative way) – we thought cane sugar was the best option.
Is Everleaf Vegan?
Yes. (We don’t current have independent vegan certification, but Everleaf is suitable for vegans and we are careful to ensure that things like our sugar are vegan certified)
Is Everleaf Gluten Free?
Where is Everleaf made?
Everleaf is blended and bottled in the UK.
How do you store Everleaf?
Unopened, Everleaf should be drunk before the BBE date on the bottle. After opening, Everleaf is best consumed within 3 months. It doesn’t need to be refrigerated, but we do prefer our drinks chilled!
Why is Everleaf a similar price to alcohol?
We use the best natural ingredients, including two of the world’s most expensive spices (saffron and sustainable Madagascan vanilla). We have also developed our own proprietary production method to add complexity to Everleaf. No other drink uses the same techniques.
Is it safe to drink Everleaf while pregnant?
Everleaf is perfectly safe to drink while pregnant. However, if you have any concerns around any of the ingredients listed please consult your GP.
