Amplify is a non-alcoholic spirit distilled using an iStill, which is one of the latest and most advanced stills on the market, allowing more accurate temperature control and rectification.
Like traditional spirits, Amplify is distilled and made with a host of invigorating ingredients such as juniper berries, coriander seeds, Angelica root, lemon peel, lemongrass, and ginseng root. These fragrant botanicals combine with vibrant, punchy orange and citrus notes to provide a drink that satisfies the taste buds, without any need for alcohol.
Amplify’s perfect serve is on the rocks with Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic and a zingy twist of fresh pink grapefruit, but it’s refreshing flavour profile means it also tastes fantastic in classic cocktails, summery Spritzes, and spiced seasonal serves.
Amplify is available from Morrisons, Tesco, Amazon, Harrods, Drink Supermarket and Master of Malt. RRP £15 (50cl bottle).
