Maker The Juice Brewery claims this is the original soft brew a soft drink made using brewing methods.

An infusion of English malted barley and hops, with added fruit juice and sparkling water, it contains no additives or preservatives.

Available in Waitrose, independents and online, WP Hopper Soft Brew comes in apple, blackcurrant and citrus apple flavours, each 275ml bottle containing less than 100 calories. Unusually for a soft drink, it has a beer-like head.

"We learned that it's important to look the part, as well as taste the part," says The Juice Brewery founder Greg Watson.
