Altina have a vision to make sophisticated, beautiful and flavour forward drinks accessible to everyone. These are individually crafted, ready to drink cocktails that don’t mimic an alcoholic product.
Light Me Up features flavours of Apple, Forestberry, and Wattleseed. You get sweetness from the apple but also a dry finish from the green tea. There is also a nice little warming burn thanks to a sprinkling of cayenne pepper extract. Whilst the complexity is there and you do get a nice full palette of flavours; it’s a little too sweet for me and I prefer La Vie En Rose of the two Altina offerings.
I do prefer Light Me up over the TÖST. They are quite similar in terms of flavour profiles, but I find TÖST more sickly sweet than the Altina. Again the thing that’s missing for me is the balance of some acidity, but I really do have a high threshold for sour!
This would be a nice picnic offering and balanced by some bitey cheese or something nice and savoury.
Buy Again?: No, but only because I prefer La Vie En Rose
This review that links to an online retailer may pay me affiliate commissions. If you purchase I collect a small commission (at no cost to you!) and it really helps me offset some of the cost of running Dry but Wet.
