Teetotalling Non-alcoholic Shloer hamper {giveaway}

I was not paid to host this amazing giveaway of a Hamper valued at $365 or to write this post, I was gifted 4 bottles of Shloer : sparkling juice drink , to review.

How sad it was I did not receive this Hamper - full of Shloer and Simon Johnson gourmet goodies worth $365 !

For health reasons I have given up drinking wine. Medically it's my choice to be a teetotaller 
or not , I've had 2 x 1/2 glasses in 10 months.

I drink mostly 'under the sink filtered water' for refreshment (and copious amounts of white tea and green tea), sometimes plain soda or mineral water and a lemon wedge; rarely soft drink due to added sugar I don't need.

Shloer is made from  crisp white and aromatic red grapes, blended with the purest water to create a unique tasting sparkling juice drink. Not unlike wine produced from premium quality grapes, though it doesn't taste like the wine I prefer to drink.

As it boasts no preservatives, artificial colours, sweeteners or flavourings, Shloer is an alternative to alcohol and apparently the drink of choice for many expectant and new mums. I can't vouch for that claim.

I do know it's nice to enjoy a 'light fizz' drink of something other than water with my hubby, to unwind. I miss da' vino though Shloer doesn't really taste like wine , I can pretend.

I juice my own fruit and vegie juices but it's not the same in a wine glass..., green foamy and with floaters or cloudy beetroot red.

I enjoyed the Shloer Red Grape, chilled - with pleasant fruity flavours , though I found it a bit sweet it was refreshing. I am too used to plain water. My children liked it immensely.

The Shloer White Grape flavour was my preference. I liked it more with a little carbonated water to reduce the sweetness too.

I think I'd enjoy using Shloer more as the base for  non-alcoholic cocktails and add a zing and zestiness with other mixers.

I didn't even know it has a rich heritage stretching almost 80 years, still based on the original recipe by Professor Jules Shloer of Switzerland!
