Soft Drinks

Sicilian Lemonade

Our organic Sicilian Lemonade was one of the first drinks founder Gabriel developed when he set up Luscombe Drinks back in 1997, after returning to the family farm from his time living in Sicily. He was inspired to recreate the thirst-quenching tang of homemade fresh lemonade that’s served across the island that he had so enjoyed during his travels. We have been sourcing our organic Sicilian lemons from Antonella in Palermo for over ten years now. It took Gabriel many years to find an organic Sicilian lemon grove that produced lemons with the perfect balance of sweet acidity. It’s what makes our Organic Sicilian Lemonade so popular with leading chefs and restaurants across the country.

It’s the climate in Sicily that gives its lemons their unique tart but sweet flavour. Sicilian lemon groves can be found growing on the island’s rich volcanic soil. The long sunny days coupled with the cooler nights allow the lemon trees to produce intensely flavoured fruit packed with a tart but sweet juice, that is impossible to beat.

A classic still lemonade of sharp Sicilian lemons rounded off with an indulgent splash of Madagascan vanilla.

About Luscombe

Since 1087 the Luscombe Estate has been a hive of farming activity, with the farm making an appearance in the Doomsday Book. Since then, Luscombe Drinks has continued the Estate’s story, crafting and perfecting small batch, organic, artisanal drinks on the farm since 1975.

Luscombe itself is an ancient name; ‘hlose’ from the Saxon for ‘valley of the swine’, while ‘coombe’ is Anglo-Saxon for ‘short valley’. Inspired by our rich history, the logo’s winged apple represents the fruit of our orchards entwined with the wings of the angel Gabriel, Luscombe’s founder Gabriel David’s namesake.

Apples have always been at the heart of Luscombe. Cider has been pressed and fermented on site since the twelfth century. Traditionally, workers were paid, at least in part, with cider – up to a rather generous five gallons in the summer. That’s how things were done here right up until the 1970s.

The Luscombe family left the farm around 1750, and it wasn’t for another two centuries that the current owner, Julian David, opened the next chapter in the Luscombe story. Julian relished the opportunity to rejuvenate Luscombe’s cider pressing heritage, and continued the tradition, selling freshly pressed drinks from the farm gate. Production increased over the years and, in 1983, Luscombe cider earned first prize and the Reserve Champion Award at the Devon County Show.

In 1997, Gabriel David returned from a spell in Sicily, to join his father in the family business. Inspired to bring home the evocative flavours of his travels, he began crafting classic English soft drinks and juices from organic ingredients. Every drink was – and still is today – entirely free from concentrates, additives, preservatives, colourings, artificial flavourings or enhancers. With an ever-growing collection of awards and accolades, and Gabriel at the helm, Luscombe Drinks is still very much a family business.

Now supplying over 12 countries and producing more than 9.5 million bottles per year, the business continues to remain faithful to its principles and serve up ever more innovative natural flavours.
