Floreat is the result of our tireless pursuit to establish a new way of optimising socializing and using herbs for more than just flavour
We passionately believe that a balanced approach to alcohol is a justified way forward. Herbs have traditionally been included in foods and drinks for many thousands of years and science is beginning to explore these uses more thoroughly.
Floreat is both lower alcohol (5.4% ABV vs. 12-12.5%) and calories (36 vs. 72Kcal/100ml) than sparkling wines. We use only the best herbal sources, so Floreat contains organic, biodynamic botanics and manufactured to medical grade herbal standards to ensure top quality herbs.
A patented method of blending twenty six different herbs, vitamins and botanical extracts including violets, rose petals, lime flowers & milk thistle seeds.
Taking its name from the Latin term, meaning ‘let flourish’, Floreat is the brainchild of Anne-Marie Hurst, a qualified medical herbalist and former Diageo executive, who has united British expertise and craftmanship to reinvent tonic wine with the modern drinker in mind.
Addressing the global shift towards more mindful living and consumption, Floreat is uniquely crafted with a special blend of herbalist quality botanicals that have been thoughtfully handpicked by Anne-Marie who regularly uses these herbs.
