Refreshingly Pure

There is nothing better than enjoying a cold glass of water after a workout, but are you aware of what might be lurking in your bottle?

Harmful toxins could be present in your drink if you don’t use BPA free containers.

BPA, Bisphenol-A is a chemical which is used in the production of plastics. Products using BPA have been in commercial use since 1957. BPA is also used to make linings of food cans which forms a protective barrier between the metal of a can and the food.

Storing your food in glass is proven to be your safest option, plus it will save you time and money. Here’s why:

Glass is produced from naturally abundant material and will not degrade over time.  Unlike some plastic products, Kilner jars and bottles will give you years of use.

Glass enhances food flavours. The natural glossy surface of glass repels food odours, colours and flavours so you can enjoy your homemade preserves and stored food to their full potential.

Money-saving and greener. Glass jars can be re-used over and over again for many purposes without deteriorating, offering you maximum cost effectiveness.
Glass eliminates food staining.  Do you scrub your plastic containers for hours on end trying to remove stains?  With Kilner glass jars, you will not need to do this, making life simpler.

Try infusing your water with lemon and lime for a citrus twist.

Infuse with Elderflower

There are many different flowers, herbs and spices you can use to infuse alcohol or soft drinks, but elderflower has to be our favourite.

Elderflower cordial is made from the elderberry plant, mixed with sugar and water. Elderflower dates back to the Roman times when they acquired a taste for the sweet and delicate drink.

Elderflowers are coming back into season and grow in most of Europe and Africa. The cream flowers smell like honey and are crisp and juicy, highlighting the aromatic scent and flavour of the plant.

To make a cordial, the elderflower heads are steeped in a concentrated sugar solution and then removed and replaced with  lemon juice to help preserve the cordial. The mixture is then covered and left to infuse.

You can buy the cordial from most supermarkets and you can simply add it to fizzy water or mix a little in a glass of champagne, wine or beer. The taste is sweet and delicate and adds something special to your beverage.

You can make your own wine, cider or beer at home with Kilner’s 4-week wine making kits, or bitter, beer and cider brewing kits, which will allow you to add the elderflower easily and let it infuse during the process.
