Review for Dash Water – I’m Inspired by a taste of cucumber
Alcohol alternatives come in all shares and size, and in our world anything that offers an alternative is to be welcomed
Overall Rank for Dash Water -Rating 10/10
Its terms of alcohol alternatives particularly as summer is upon us I am always excited to come across new examples I can share with you if you have not come across it already. Dash water got a high score for me.
Usual statutory rights apply but they are clear on calories, ingredients but supply the usual caveat on health benefits as you would expect.
Dash Water is basically Sparkling Water infused with cucumber but they do it so well. The one I tried is cucumber flavor and I got it straight from the fridge and ordered some for my fridge at home. Just basic flavors that is all really ! Zero calories warning.
0.0% ABV so alcohol by volume so it’s a winner and of course it would be. A zero calories product and free from sweeteners as well so you really know what you are getting here. The branding is clear and distinguishes itself in the market. They also make a claim that is wonky.
Don’t worry it’s wonky veg so you know the sort of veg people turn their nose up at veg stores. I can never understand why as I have bought wonky fruit for years and by doing this they reduce the waste. Great strides and all that!
I struggle with the cons apart from the fact it’s not an alcohol free beverage in the traditional sense but sometimes it’s nice to drink something similar but different. Bearing in mind zero alcohol products do have sugar in them this is a good way to watch the waistline so the con is not the sugar or the “fix” some people like.
Dash water comes in at around £13.99 12 cans. (buy online here) which is a good deal, yes it is water but if you are looking for alcohol free alternatives rather than the traditional fizzy pop it seems a fair price. Just compare what you could pay for a bottle of spring water. In my view it needs to be cold like many of my suggestions!
So for me this would be great at a festival watching a parade or quench clincher at a BBQ. It’s got a healthy taste and the cucumber brings something different. It’s no win for picnics.
I welcome any addition to bring something unique to the 0.0% abv market and maybe its ginger beer or fizzy cucumber water but it’s choice and that’s important. It’s certainly on my long term beverage list and yes of course you could make your own I guess!
