I came across ZestCo by chance, thought I’d give them a go and have never looked back. The fruits’ intense taste is amazing and makes my gin sing out – the only problem I have is working out which fruit works best in my fave gin. That’s some research I don’t mind doing. The bonus question for me is when the glass is empty of gin: do I gobble the gorgeous fruit or top up the glass with water and leave it overnight in the fridge for a fruity pre-breakfast pick me up? Great admiration for ZestCo’s sustainable angle, organic fruit simply prepared and packaged in environmentally compostable paper bags. Yes please. I will be a repeat customer for many years. Thanks.
I first came across The Zest Co last year after seeing them feature in several of mumslovegin posts.
Sarah offers a great variety of dehydrated orangic fruit products that come in recyclable paper bags from blood orange to strawberry, kumquat to bergamot.
Ive tried the mixed citrus bags, apple, kumquat, bergamot and my personal favourite the blood orange bag which is perfect for adding to a Negroni.
Sarah also kindly gifted me a bag of the bergamot slices after I contacted her to find out if this was something she stocked. Sadly at the time this wasn’t a line she stocked, but I was sent a bag to try once this was in production.
The standard size bag contains a minimum of 35g and range in price from £4.50 to £7.50 with shipping costing £3.25. Certain fruits come in smaller 25g bags like the kumquat and kiwi fruit. The latest product Sarah has added are tasting packs. These come in 25g bags and contain a citrus fruit and your choice of botanical and are ideal for trying out with a new gin.
I always find that Sarah gives excellent customer service and is open to suggestions for new products to add to her fantastic range,
I have been using Zest Co Garnishes for some time now and they are just brilliant. Fresh, and delicious, when you open the packets the smell is just amazing. My absolutely favourite are the Blood Oranges, but I have had citrus mix, lemons, juniper berries, raspberries, strawberries, limes, oranges, and grapefruits. You get a decent amount in the packs and they are really good value for money. Sarah gives great customer service too and is always on hand to answer any questions you may have. Give these garnishes a go, they are really great.
