Humblebee Refresher is refreshingly simple. Just three ingredients – pressed apple juice from the gardens and orchards of Gloucestershire, mixed with strawberry juice or raspberry juice, and a splash of water. Nothing else. The result is a light, crisp, thirst-quenching drink - beautifully refreshing on a summer’s day.
As well as being a treat for you, Humblebee Refresher is good for bumblebees. How come? For every bottle sold, a contribution is made to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. We need bees to pollinate our fruit trees and they need our help to protect their habitats. Unsprayed orchards are a haven for hundreds of species of flora and fauna, including bumblebees, so it’s a match made in heaven.
Unsprayed Gloucestershire apples that are at the heart of what the makers do. From Ashmead’s Kernel to William Crump, we are spoilt for choice with wonderful traditional varieties, most of which you won’t find in the shops. Surplus apples are also collected from orchards and gardens all over the county, with free juice (or cider) given in return – BYO apples, GYO juice! It’s all part of a commitment to conserving traditional Gloucestershire orchards that inspired David Lindgren to retreat from corporate life and set up The Cotswold Fruit Company in 2014. Humblebee’s sibling brand, Bushel+Peck cider and perry, embodies these same principles; local, sustainable - and delicious.
