Eleven years ago, when founder Ed Rigg blended his first all-natural eager apple juice in his own kitchen, he’d grown tired of suffocating his favourite tipple, Zubrówka Bison Grass, with overly sweet, concentrated apple juice. Today his range of premium fruit juices, soft drinks and mixers are blended to be clean and clear, the perfect high-end companion to the fine craft spirits revolutionising the drinks market.
From the ripe flesh to the aromatic peels, eager uses the entire fruit in the making of its range of drinks. Their understated flavours, all-natural ingredients and totally fresh perspective will help you achieve a delicious balance in every mixed drink and cocktail created.
eager drinks know their place. That’s not to say they’re not impressive — all eager fruit juices are 100% natural, with no artificial additives, while tonics are made using natural dried fruit peels, gently steeped for hours.
It’s just that they’re designed to play their part in creating the best cocktails and mixed drinks, rather than hog all the limelight for themselves.
eager fruit juices and tonics are crafted to celebrate their extroverted soulmates: artisan spirits.
With complex flavours and delicate subtlety, these spirits are overwhelmed by most mixers, the sugary sweetness and cloying flavours dulling taste buds and neutralising their potency.
Pure, clean, clear and balanced. eager Cold Brew Tonics are made differently so they taste different — whether that’s on their own as refreshing alcohol-free serves, or combined with delicious premium spirits.
Designed with balance and tone in mind, they perfectly accentuate the subtle taste of artisan gins, vodkas, and any other craft spirits that take your fancy, rather than overwhelming delicate flavours with sugar.
Each tonic in the range is created by packing bunches of dried fruit peel into hessian bags and steeping the oil-rich rinds in cold water for 24 hours. Further natural ingredients are introduced, before the whole formula is gently carbonated.
Small batch Cold Brew Tonic is different to the tonics you’ve tried before. Cloying sweetness gives way to crisp minerality, resulting in the perfect counterpoint to a premium gin. The range includes regular Cold Brewed Tonic Water, Light Cold Brewed Tonic Water (low in sugar) and Smoked Cold Brewed Tonic Water — particularly delicious when teamed with craft tequila.
Lower in sugar, and purer in flavour than mass market tonics, eager Cold Brew Tonic lets the essence of artisan spirits truly shine.
Inside every colourful carton of eager fruit juice is a riot of flavour, just waiting to transform a tasty drink into something truly special. With eight delicious flavours to choose from, eager is the brand of choice for master bartenders and cocktail bars.
eager Apple is naturally cloudy, pressed from the finest of European apples, and offers a sour hint, for a lighter, less sweet tone. eager Cranberry contains juice from the plumpest of North American cranberries — tart and toothsome, it sets artisan vodka or rum off to perfection.
The sun-kissed Valencia oranges that are squeezed for every carton of eager Smooth Orange Juice and Orange Juice with Bits provide bursts of mouth-watering citric tang. eager Pineapple contains 100% cloudy pressed juice sourced from Central American fruit — high on zesty flavour and lower on sweetness, with flavours that won’t overshadow high quality rum or gin.
Each drop of eager Pink Grapefruit Juice is squeezed from fruit nurtured in the groves of the finest grapefruit growers, so taste and consistency reaches the perfect balance. Each carton of eager Pomegranate is bursting with ripe pomegranates sourced from the Middle East, while eager Tomato is made with fresh Marmande heirloom tomatoes for a smooth texture.
eager simply doesn’t mess about when it comes to the creation of their fruit juices. All their drinks are 100% natural, with no artificial additives, while their pure, clean flavours team perfectly with premium spirits, and are also impeccable served on their own.
Popping the flip-top stopper on a carbonated bottle of eager fruit juice is one of life’s simple pleasures. With the sound of gentle fizzing, anticipation builds and taste buds begin to water.
Each elegant glass bottle of eager contains plentiful supplies of fruit, gently carbonated for an effervescent pop. Only the finest ingredients are used to create four delicious, thirst-quenching flavours: Cloudy Apple, Pink Grapefruit, Valencia Orange and Sicilian Lemon.
The juice inside every bottle of naturally Cloudy Apple has been gently pressed using ripe European apples, for a flavour that’s less sweet and incredibly zesty. Each drop of Pink Grapefruit is sourced directly from the groves of the finest grapefruit growers, resulting in a finely balanced freshness.
Valencia Orange is high on fizz and bursting with refreshing fruit aromas, the perfect combination of acidity and smoothness. Sicilian Lemon is the ultimate hit of sour citric tang, a crisp drink that sparkles on the tongue and mixes perfectly with premium spirits.
By sourcing the finest fruit possible, and keeping ingredients simple, eager makes delicious soft drinks that don’t just shine — they sparkle.
