Cawston Press Juices - Review

Cawston Press have been making pressed apple juice since 1986. The apples used to make the blended juices are Cox's Orange Pippin, Bramley, Jonagold, Gala, Golden Delicious and Braeburn. All of the juices are free from sugar, artificial sweeteners, preservatives and colourings. Also, they only use juice that has come from apples pressed within 48 hours of being picked.

They have now launched their first sparkling drinks, Sparkling Apple and Sparkling Apple Ginger Beer. Sparkling Apple Ginger Beer was our favourite, it is quite fiery and definitely one to be enjoyed by adults.  Sparkling Apple will be appreciated by both adults and children.

Sparkling Apple poured over ice.

Eye catching cartons.
Apple & Rhubarb, sweet and sharp from blended apples, and sour from rhubarb, this is a perfect combination of flavours. Cloudy Apple, their Original Signature Blend, is a winner and very refreshing. Apple & Ginger is a warming drink for the autumnal months, and this proved to be a firm favourite of ours. Apple & Elderflower has a subtle hint of elderflower coming through and is the perfect summer drink.

We poured the drinks over ice or served them chilled, either way they are absolutely delicious.

Reassuringly, the juices within the cartons are not made from concentrate but are gently pasteurised blended juices. These cartons aren't in the chiller cabinet at your local supermarket, but can be found in the ambient aisle, they can be stored unopened at room temperature. The cartons need to be stored in the fridge either to chill them down, or after opening. They come in Tetra Pak cartons and can be recycled too.

One 200ml glass of any of their juices will provide 1 of your 5-a-day.

750ml Sparkling Apple/Sparkling Ginger Beer RRP £2.79. 1 litre still juice cartons RRP £2.09. 250ml lunchbox still cartons 89p. 250ml x 6 multipacks £3.89, Kid's Blends x 3 multipacks/200ml RRP £1.79.

Stockists include:  Waitrose, Ocado, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Booths, independent stores and direct from Cawston Press.

Thank you Martin and Cawston Press for the delicious juices.
