Brindisa BYO Boxes

Brindisa has launched a ‘build-your-own-box’ service via its online store – offering everything from elevated snacks to BBQ-ready delicacies for the ultimate al fresco get-together. Designed for easy entertaining, the two BYO boxes allow customers to pick and choose what to add to their box from specially drawn-up lists. The Picnic Tote comes with everything needed for a delicious picnic, from Brindisa’s award-winning gazpacho to a range of cheeses, charcuterie, olives and Torres crisps. The BBQ Box provides a selection of meat and veggie options – all seasoned, packed and ready to be placed straight onto the grill – including steamed octopus, chorizo and padron peppers.

Folc 2022 Vintage

After launching in 2020, Folc impressed wine critics and won numerous awards in the UK and internationally. Now, the top English wine brand has launched its 2022 vintage. It’s a blend of nine grape varieties – pinot meunier, pinot noir, pinot noir précoce, bacchus, chardonnay, pinot gris, and small amounts of ortega, rondo and reichensteiner – all sourced from family run vineyards in Kent, Sussex and Suffolk. The grapes then travel to Canterbury to be turned into wine – and the result is a wine that’s just right for summer sipping in the garden.

Gail’s Crisps

Gail’s Bakery has a new summer menu featuring a refreshed range of sandwiches and salads – and most excitingly, its first ever selection of crisps in partnership with Two Farmers, which makes hand-cooked crisps in Herefordshire. Three flavours are available: Wild Mushroom & Garlic, Cheese & Onion, and Salted, which are lightly seasoned with Droitwich salt. The rest of the menu uses seasonal ingredients supplied by local producers – think juicy tomatoes by Natoora and Eaten Alive ferments in the spelt, cauliflower and ferments salad; and a mortadella and ricotta sandwich with parmesan butter, ricotta, pistachio and olive pesto, hot pickled peppers and rocket.

amie Sparkling + Magnums

London wine studio amie has launched its organic rosé as a magnum, and amie sparkling wine. Both are available to try and buy at its studio in Belgravia or order online. The former is a magnum of the team’s much-loved organic, pale, dry rosé produced in the Languedoc region of southern France. Made from a blend of organic grenache and ginsault, the wine is light and crisp with citrus and peach characteristics – and pairs well with salads and grilled dishes. The sparkling wine is a delicate, fresh and balanced crémant from Limoux in the south of France. It’s delicate on the nose with a blend of white flowers, fresh fruit and a hint of honey.

Birley Bakery Ice-Creams

On Chelsea Green, Birley Bakery has fast become a go-to bakery in London for those in the know. Inspired by France’s traditional boulangerie-patisseries, it serves a range of breads, pastries, cakes, chocolates and spreads, as well as takeaway coffees. Now it’s introduced ice-cream to the mix. The selection of homemade ice-creams and sorbets are available in the same subtle flavours found in owner Robin Birley’s clubs (5 Hertford Street, Oswald’s) – think chocolate and coconut; and rose – alongside a delicious vegan sorbet.

BZZD Energy

BZZD Energy is the world’s first ‘energy tonic water’. While many leading energy drinks use synthetic caffeine, BZZD Energy uses caffeine extracted from 100% natural plant sources to create the ultimate all-natural, uplifting buzz. The drink is also infused with pure blossom honey and plant-based stevia to create a delicate flavour with no sugary aftertaste – each can contains just 18 calories. Ideal for those times you need an afternoon lift, BZZD Energy can be poured into a glass of ice to be enjoyed as it comes, or as a mixer for spirits and low/no-alcohol alternatives to create a highball.

Dash Lime

Dash Water – the well-loved brand that makes infused sparkling water using wonky fruit – has a new flavour. Dash Lime contains just three ingredients: fresh spring water, bubbles and wonky limes – and never any sugar, sweeteners or calories. Ideal for an afternoon drink, we also think this latest flavour would work excellently as a mixer.

Each one marries high-quality French wines or Japanese sake with natural, premium sodas for a refreshing, elevated and low-alcohol ready-to-drink option.

Starbucks X Nespresso Pods

Nespresso has collaborated with Starbucks Reserve to launch a limited-edition Remix Blend. The capsules have been created using two distinct coffee origins, Starbucks Reserve’s Aged Sumatra and Nespresso’s Ethiopian Mokaboji.
