COMPLEMENTING GOOD FOOD
NINE ELMS No.18 is the first in a range of alcohol-free drinks specifically designed to complement good food – not to emulate wine, but as a satisfying alternative when people choose not to drink alcohol.
Created in London and produced using an innovative combination of traditional & contemporary techniques, the NINE ELMS range bridges the divide between alcoholic and non-alcoholic products.
Intriguingly complex, Surprisingly versatile
the straight pour
NINE ELMS No.18 has great acidity, mouth-watering tannins and a good long finish – but most importantly, it’s delicious! This sensorial depth is achieved by skillfully blending the juice of 4 types of berry and the botanical infusions of 20 different flowers, herbs and spices.
Although NINE ELMS No.18 was designed to serve as a straight pour with food, it also has enough character to shine in a cocktail. To demonstrate this versatility we have created some signature recipes for you to try.
Sophisticated and moreish with refreshing bitterness and a gentle caffeine kick.

10ml cold brewed coffee

Juicy twist of pink grapefruit
Measure the NINE ELMS No.18 and cold brewed coffee into an ice filled highball or rocks glass. Give it a gentle stir then add the rosemary sprig and grapefruit twist. Top with the tonic.
A little indulgent glamour. Delicious after dinner, after dark or anytime you desire.
90ml NINE ELMS No.18
Generous dash of Peychaud’s Bitters

Add everything but the twist to an ice filled shaker. Shake vigorously, then strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass. Finish with an orange peel twist.
Traditionally, restaurants have only been able to provide relatively limited and unsophisticated drinks options for guests who aren’t drinking. NINE ELMS No.18’s complexity and sensorial depth means it pairs well with a broad range of dishes and it doesn’t have to be made in-house.
Its distinctive 75cl bottle makes a bold but refined statement on any table, allowing restaurants to offer the same high level experience to all of their guests.
