As refreshing as sparkling water but delicately flavourful like elderflower water – this new kid on the block fits perfectly with British cuisine – we love our cucumber sandwiches  – why not some cucumber fizz too!?  I’ve thought of the following brilliant uses for it;

*As a non-alcoholic alternative to bubbly.

*Amazing for taking the heat off a curry – very smooth and refreshing on the palette

*An instant addition to gin – no tonic needed!

*Lovely and refreshing at breakfast time – waken you up for the day

*Take on a picnic.  Of course.

Qcumber is a new, unique and refreshing soft drink, inspired by the idyll of an English summer.

The effervescent and individual taste has been created by using a blend of natural cucumber essence and gently sparkling spring water, creating the fresh flavour which is Qcumber.

The distilling process has resulted in a fruit based drink unlike any other, providing a cool, refreshing drink that sublimely transports you to a taste of summer.

Made from 100% natural ingredients, Qcumber is free from; artificial sweeteners, colours, preservatives and flavourings; and contains just 67 calories per 250ml.

The Ingredient

Quintessentially British, famous as a key ingredient in afternoon tea, cucumbers have been a favourite of the nation for centuries. Technically a fruit, although commonly referred to as a salad vegetable, cucumbers are not only used to make the delicious Qcumber, they also contain an array of beneficial properties.

Famous for the phrase ‘cool as a cucumber’, they can be up to 20% cooler inside than the surrounding air temperature.

Low in calories and fat, cucumbers also contains many vitamins and minerals that make them a healthy choice – such as potassium, magnesium and fibre that work effectively for regulating blood pressure.

Due to a high silica content, cucumbers can help to prevent splitting and spoiling of nails of the fingers and toes, and stimulate hair growth.
