Gotta have it: Coastal Juniper

Want to supercharge your Dry Jan with a super-tasty alcohol-free tipple? Muddy has just the thing to gird your willpower, and it's zero-calorie too!

Wading through the Dry January desert? Well done you! But just in case you find your hand hovering over the Hendricks, here’s a tried-and-tested, Muddy-approved suggestion… try a drop of Sea Arch’s Coastal Juniper first.

Why? Well, apart from the fact it’s Muddy’s favourite alcohol-free drink, and really hits the spot when you’re craving a G&T, it’s also local – invented in Torquay by a husband and wife team.

Pop it in a glass with a slug of tonic and some ice to chink, you can almost imagine you’re having a gin, it’s that good – maybe because it’s a spirit, distilled just like gin, packing the zingy kick of citrus, samphire and sea kelp.

And it doesn’t hurt that the bottle is a beautiful blue, and makes a comfortingly alcoholic squeak when you take out the cork.

Even more virtuously, if you buy a Gift Pack (£20.50), Sea Arch are donating £1 from every pack sold throughout Dry January to support the research and conservation work done by The Seahorse Trust for the likes of this little fella (above). What a cutie.

Dieters and Veganuary-ers (ites?), you can join in the fun too, as Coastal Juniper is calorie-free and vegan-friendly to boot. Feel free to knock ’em back with a slimline tonic. There’s no sweeteners BTW it’s all flavoured with natural botanicals.

And in a month where everyone we know seems to be cutting out something, we”ll drink to that.
