Radnor Hills have been busy carefully concocting a seventh flavour to add to their Heartsease Farm Premium Pressè range, introducing a Strawberry & Mint Pressé. Made with sweet juicy strawberries and refreshing garden mint making this the perfect drink for the warmer weather!
Using its very own fresh spring water as the foundation for its beverages, Radnor Hills pay keen attention to the ingredients that are used to make its range of sparkling premium pressés. “We try to source the best available ingredients,” says William Watkins, managing director. “From the finest Sicilian lemons to traditional British blackcurrants that arrive from a farm just down the road in Herefordshire. Provenance of our ingredients is key to each flavour.”
With other concoctions like Apple & Rhubarb and Raspberry Lemonade, the company errs on the side of sophisticated flavours, and even has smartly-designed bottles to suit the theme. This was a conscious decision, admits William. “Central to our business belief is to create products that look and particularly taste better than those of our competitors. With that central core value in mind, we have assembled a team of experts in developing and producing delicious products. This is where some great ideas turn into reality.”
The pressés are available in both 750ml and 330ml glass bottles, as well as 425ml premium PET bottles. These creative flavours can be found in local delis, food halls, farm shops, garden centres, pubs and cafés across the country.
Named after the Welsh farm that has been in the family since 1903, the company began producing bottled mineral water in the nineties as part of the Radnor Hills brand. William’s family wanted to create a drinks range that reflected the heritage of their beloved farm, thus Heartsease Farm was born.
“There was a clear gap in the market for a really premium range of sparkling pressés that are bottled in both glass and plastic,” says William. “Many outlets can’t stock glass and this gives them the chance to sell a super-premium pressé range in plastic bottles. It’s because of this, and many other reasons, that Heartsease Farm is performing extremely well.”
William believes that the Heartsease Farm pressés complement Radnor Hills’ other range of beverages. “We have become a one-stop shop when it comes to soft drinks,” he says. “Buyers can order mineral water, flavoured water, healthy school compliant drinks, fruit juices and premium adult pressés all from under one roof!”
