Our favourite vegan companies and products of this month
Taking part in dry January? These delightful alcohol-free tipples will see you through. There are four varieties, but the raspberry flavour is a strong favourite. Crafted from pure sugar cane molasses, FLUÈRE Raspberry is carefully distilled with fresh raspberries which give a fresh, smooth and slightly sweet nose and ripe fruit on the palate. It's great in mocktails or mixed simply with tonic and ice, for a guilt-free but delicious evening drink.
New vegan company, Grateful Pies, only launched in November 2020, but they make use of a dish that has evolved over time from the pages of a family recipe book. Grateful's pies contain only ten ingredients and a blend of aromatic spices. Inspired by the classic French-Canadian Tourtière, each pie is made with a light olive oil crust and a delicious filling of green lentils flavoured with Bramley apple, onion, celery, mushroom, potato and seasoned with aromatic spices.
