NO. 1 ROSEMARY WATER: In the peaceful coastal hamlet of Acciaroli, villagers enjoy the good life – and they enjoy it for a while longer than the rest of us. When scientists visited Acciaroli, they identified one potentially crucial variable: the villagers ate rosemary, and a lot of it. Grown locally, the herb is an integral part of their otherwise classically Mediterranean diet. Rosemary’s benefits are well-documented: it has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties. It can reportedly ward off dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

More than one in ten residents make it up to (and well past) their hundredth birthdays, and without many of the problems that plague aging populations elsewhere around the globe.  The story of Acciaroli was reported in several high-profile media outlets – including the BBC, The Telegraph, and The New York Times – and in September 2016, it caught the interest of David Spencer-Percival, our founder and CEO.

A visit to Acciaroli with his wife Bonita turned David’s interest in rosemary into an obsession. There was, however, one problem: he didn’t really want to eat it, and there were no rosemary drinks available on the market. Desperate to somehow integrate the plant into his diet, he decided to create his own. David designed No1 Rosemary Water as a drink to remember; something that would provide a convenient means of incorporating this reinvigorating herb into conventional Western diets.
