About the Company

Flõ (Fun, loving, original) Drinks

I need to drink more water and get healthy. I need to cut out soft drinks and juices with all their sugar, sweeteners, preservatives, colouring and other additives.

But I want a water that I enjoy drinking, even if I’m not thirsty. A water that I don’t have to remind myself to drink, because I crave it. A water bursting with delicious real flavours, yet it’s still water and not a soft drink in disguise.

All natural, not sweetened, no calories, no preservatives, no colouring and not acidic. I’m sure other people want that too. But it doesn’t exist, so we’ll make it.

And we’ll be a circular brand that benefits humanity: producing healthy products in eco-conscious packaging and giving back by donating 10% of our profits to clean water and clean planet projects.

kidney punch feat1

Packaging Spotlight: Kidney Punch Pale Ale



Designed by

Joan Quirós

London, United Kingdom




Kidney Punch is a craft beer inspired in the East London area. Its name comes up from the Cockney rhyming slang, that means ‘lunch’. This double meaning is reflected on its personality, due to its flavour and alcohol content, it fits well as a beer table and to drink it at the pub as well. The idea was to create a powerful design with a handcrafted character, that’s why following a full calligraphic process was essential to capture the spirit of this project.

Retail Spotlight: Beyond Bread Bakery & Café Puts London On The Gluten-Free Map

London, United Kingdom: Open six days a week and offering 100% gluten-free products baked on the premises, Beyond Bread is doing things very differently in a fast-evolving market. The Bakery & Cafe is already creating quite a storm – not just among gluten-free fans – but those who appreciate good food that tastes delicious in a contemporary, stylish setting.

Since the official opening on January 5th 2015, customer feedback has been very positive and encouraging. Beyond Bread is a progressive culinary concept designed to create familiar tastes through gluten-free foods. Innovating and creating, leading and not following, the expert team is keen to promote gluten-free past any misconceptions of it being a passing fashion fad. Adriana Rabinovich, author of ‘The Gluten-Free Cookbook For Kids’, a highly respected pioneer in gluten-free cooking, assisted with the product development and the range is an diverse, delicious mix of pasties, pastries and pies, cakes and quiches, tempting tarts, sumptuous sandwiches, and of course, an excellent selection of gluten-free breads.

Lunchtimes, as predicted, are the liveliest period during the working week, and the brunch-seeking Saturday crowd are also becoming welcome regulars at the Fitzrovia bolthole. The Bakery & Café has been described as “…a chirpy charm offensive, some wry wit and an astounding range of baked treats in a fitting more fashion than focaccia”.

Feedback from customers is vital at this early stage – the team continually develop new products and seek inspiration from the very people they’re catering for. The gluten-free community has been incredibly supportive of the opening, and there are plans to introduce further innovative gluten-free products in response to demands.

Gluten-Free Is The New Black

“Half tempted to go and get a brownie, they looked awesome!”

“I’d never have considered tuna and avocado in a sandwich together but it’s amazing.”

“I am SUPER excited to swing by this afternoon!”

About the Company
In 2004 I was honeymooning in Phi Phi Island in Thailand and it was there that I first starting drinking coconut water. With coconut trees adorning our island, these young green coconuts were plucked fresh, cut open and a straw placed inside — and this is how I drank at least five coconuts a day. Drinking coconut water I felt an immediate difference in my well being: I felt energised, hydrated, healthy and balanced, and my general fatigue and blurred eyes all seemed to disappear.

Drink Spotlight: Sandow’s London Cold Brew Coffee


Sandow’s London is Luke Suddards & Hugh Duffie. We’ve been working in coffee for the last few years and have become jolly good mates during our most recent stint at TAP Coffee. We’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work as baristas, manage cafés and roast coffee.

Together we’ve learnt loads about coffee and we even spend our down time seeking out new and interesting flavours, mostly in craft beers. We’ve spent hours discussing the London coffee scene and cold brew in particular on our cycle-ride-come-pub-crawl journeys home to Stoke Newington. We believe there is great momentum in speciality coffee in London, and that 2014 is the time to bring a seriously spiffing cold brew onto the market.

Cold brew is such a great way to drink coffee – bloomin’ refreshing, ours is slow brewed with cold water and double filtered for clarity with a whopping great flavour. The long contact time drags out all the delicious fruity flavours and the cold water extracts minimal acidity – but be prepared, this method draws out more caffeine so it’s one to enjoy slowly and savour. Each bottle of Sandow’s London Cold Brew is brewed, filled, capped, labelled and delivered by us weekly.
