Having produced its classic sparkling water for more than a century, the S.Pellegrino name is synonymous with a light and refreshing Italian style of mineral water. Now, for the first time, S.Pellegrino is producing a range of flavoured waters with its signature gentle bubbles.
The Essenza range is a creative blend of fruit flavours, with three in the initial line-up: Lemon & Lemon Zest; Tangerine & Wild Strawberry; and Dark Morello Cherry & Pomegranate. All are made with natural flavourings, have zero calories and are sugar-free.
While they have very enticing aromas that are redolent of cherries (in the case of the Dark Morello Cherry) and citrus (in the case of the Lemon & Lemon Zest), the flavours are actually very subtle.
Available in sleek cans, they add a stylish, harmonious touch to casual dining. Consider matching the Dark Morello Cherry & Pomegranate with red meat dishes, chocolate desserts and rich sauces.
The Lemon & Lemon Zest is perfectly paired with lighter, more delicate dishes such as fish, salads, fresh greens and fruit. Try the Tangerine & Wild Strawberry blend with medium-flavoured dishes such as white meat, cooked vegetables, pasta, and ice cream.
We think it would also be great for mixing in cocktails. Available from cafés and independent retailers; RRP $10 for an 8-pack.
