Wild Eve is an innovative, small batch non-alcoholic drink, hand crafted from an exclusive selection of organic flowers, fruits, leaves and seaweeds, hand foraged on the Isle of Harris, in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.  

The Star, a striking grade ll listed 16th century building in the medieval village of Alfriston, becomes the first hotel in England to serve the drink.

The exceptional bar team at The Star, recently named Best Hotel in the South East by The Sunday Times have created their own signature cocktail named Naked Eve to celebrate a drink which is a true taste of the isle of Harris

Prep Time: 5 Min


25ml Wild Eve 25ml Apple Juice Soda Water


These are pleasing but fleeting – Grapefruit is at the forefront giving an instant brightness as Wild Eve is cultivated with only the peel which contains the precious oil and all its key benefits. 


 Then come the middle notes, the heart of the drink – these are the warm, comforting, tastes. The florals of honeysuckle, rose, and chamomile give way to the fruity sloe, then arrives the spicy juniper and the warming oat. 

THE palate

Finally, the enduring scents and flavours that give the length – the heat of the chipotle, the earthiness of gentian, ashwagandha and bogbean and that little umami pop of the sea that Sugar Kelp always offers.
