PH: 1 Is there a maximum amount of recommended drinks per day?
Three: Three 50ml doses do normally get the party started!
But no there isn’t a maximum amount per day. The drink has been designed to make you feel good which peaks at three serves. However, going beyond three will just maintain the effect of the drink, it doesn’t work like alcohol or intoxicate you. That said, we wouldn’t drink more than three in an hour and certainly wouldn’t drink a whole bottle in one session.
2 Yerba Mate is an everyday revered drink in Argentina, how did you come across this ingredient?
Our Head Botanical Alchemist Dash discovered Mate on a trip to South America and fell in love; he makes up a brew every morning. Coffee is delicious and a great for a quick hit of energy, but Yerba Mate offers a more gentle and steady increase throughout the day. It’s also rich in antioxidants, nutrients and contains the active compound theobromine. Understanding the science behind the feeling and figuring out how we apply that to functional, delicious drinks, is what gets us really excited. Three Spirit contains Yerba Mate and 10 other plants selected for both flavour and effect. But beyond that, we are able to select desirable compounds or actives whilst omitting those that we don’t, such as caffeine which is removed. That’s what we call Botanical Alchemy.
3 Are there any health benefits associated with Three Spirits besides a ’natural high’?
Yes, we have added B vitamins – Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), and vitamins B6 and B12 – all of which contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system and have been proven to reduce fatigue. Another ingredient, coconut vinegar, offers a delicious woody flavour, but it’s also a natural probiotic and very good for gut health. We’re all about curating ingredients synergistically – understanding that if you’re not feeling 100% then you’re not going to have a good night whatever you drink. We pre-empt that and give our customers the best possible opportunity of having a great night with Three Spirit.
4 What is the most popular cocktail made with Three Spirit?
The Double Stimulant which is an Espresso Martini made with Three Spirit. It can be made with or without vodka, and we like to garnish with nutmeg. The Botanga is also great – Three Spirit, mezcal and coke with a garnish of salt and lime. Lots of our customers experiment at home and there are all sorts of creations out there, but one favourite seems to be the Three Spirit with ginger ale or beer.
5 Would you recommend it as a hangover remedy?
It’s something that we’re hearing from customers at home but we still need to test this as it’s not what we set out to do. It certainly can be preventative if you, say, swap out drinks 4, 5, 6 with Three Spirit! Our typical customer is someone who is reducing their alcohol intake and the ABV of their drinks rather than cutting alcohol out completely.
Also, some of the ingredients of Three Spirit such as the B-vitamins and coconut vinegar have body functions benefits so it is likely to make you feel better, hungover or not.
Thank you guys, lovely product, cheers!
