Hill Farm Apple Juice

This is Chris, and alongside his wife Carol and their team of local staff they run Hill Farm Juice.

Hill farm is located in the heart of the Hampshire Downs; here there is a micro-climate beneficial to the growing of excellent apples and pears = perfect for juice making.

I can’t think of any other fruit that carries so much history and British heritage, which is why we went to visit Hill farm to see their range of juices.  Hand picked fruit is brought in from the orchards and carefully hand selected to remove any unsound apples.  The apples are then crushed and gently pressed to extract the juice. The juice is flash pasteurised before being immediately bottled to lock in the orchard fresh taste.

Urban Beach now offer the seasonal variety of juice which changes depending on what variety of apple are at their best and ready to pick.  You can also buy them at the Urban Reef Deli!!

Saskia from “Fever-tree” visited us for a tasting of what we know as mixer drinks.

Tonic water, Ginger Beer, Ginger ale, Bitter lemon and Lemonade are all classic examples of mixers available in bars. All are featured in Fever-trees portfolio, however theirs are unique in the fact they use natural fine ingredients (sugars & botanicals) carefully sourced from around the world.

Other rival drinks companies around the world use artificial sweetners (saccharin) and flavourings which create a false and poor tasting version.

Urban Beach has supported Fever-tree for over two years and continue to pour their range – thus guaranting you with the very best quality spirit and mixers!!
