Natural Soft Drinks with a kick – NIX&KIX gets a new look and lower sugar content

View the whole press release

London-based drinks brand NIX&KIX have spent the last nine months working with leading bartenders and beverage scientists perfecting their range of three variants. Through rigorous testing they’ve achieved below 4.8g sugar per 100ml for their range of Mango & Ginger, Peach & Vanilla and Cucumber & Mint without adding any artificial sweeteners.

The drinks feature a unique discovery element – a hint of cayenne chilli. This gives the range a more sophisticated taste profile and opens up the world of opportunity for non-sugary, non-alcoholic drinks. Delicious on their own, the drinks can be used as a simple mixer with alcoholic beverages to create exciting new flavour combinations and healthier cocktails.

Founders Julia and Kerstin have already won a number of awards since the creation of NIX&KIX in 2015 including Best New Beverage Concept at World Beverage Innovation Awards. Both traveled the world on the hunt for natural ingredients with health benefits that enhance the daily lives of consumers. Cayenne chillies instantly got their attention as they noticed that life expectancy is surprisingly high in countries that consume a lot of chillies*.
Julia and Kerstin couldn’t ignore the positive effect that chilli seem to have on people.

“After a bit of research we found that capsaicin in chillies has metabolism boosting and energy releasing properties. More interestingly, it gives you an endorphin rush. As the body defends itself against the heat of a chilli it releases endorphins, which leaves you with a ‘high’” explains Kerstin.

“That is what makes our drinks such a great pick-me-up.” adds Julia “In addition, the flavour kick from the chilli means that we can get away with a much lower sugar content. Which is great if you need a little refreshment during the day or a healthier mixer option at night”.

Back in the UK, Julia and Kerstin found a local chilli farm in Bedfordshire where some of the finest chillies in the world are grown and where they now source their chillies from. In each of the three flavours the chilli has been blended with high quality ingredients such as Bourbon vanilla, or cucumber sourced locally from Bedfordshire.

The range comprises of the following flavours:
Cucumber & Mint:
A full bodied journey of cucumber – fleshy with skin and juiciness balanced with green garden mint leaf undertones with a slight sweetness and cooling note on the tongue, and then a contrasting warming prickle from chilli.

Mango & Ginger:
Juicy, fleshy mango notes which develop into a rooty, green almost earthy ginger character with some prickling heat from the added chilli kick.
Similar to a ginger beer, just without the high sugar content.

Peach & Vanilla:
Soft creamy Bourbon vanilla with juicy full bodied fleshy peach notes, some soft stone fruit notes and a slight chilli tingle.
Often described as a less sweet cream soda.

NIX&KIX is available in cases of 12 x 330ml bottles / 6 x 750ml bottles / 12 x 250ml cans (coming soon). The range is produced in the UK countryside and vegan friendly.
