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.
A medicinal herb that’s reported to contain unique anti-carcinogenic, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and memory-boosting properties, rosemary has been used in folk medicine for hundreds of years. Evidence suggests that a daily intake of rosemary can even help the body stay illness free and in turn contribute to a much longer life.
Want to explore the benefits but don't want to cook with it? No 1 Rosemary Water is an innovative new drink made with pure fresh rosemary extract.
After a visit to Acciaroli, David Spencer-Percival, founder of No 1 Rosemary Water, became fascinated by rosemary and its well-documented benefits. So much so, he decided to create a refreshing, luxurious still or sparkling beverage from the essential properties of the plant – retaining the health benefits and the distinct Mediterranean flavour.
Bottled according to the highest ethical standards and available in still or sparkling form, it’s a stimulating, flavourful and tasteful way to enjoy rosemary. It’s refreshing, revitalising, and above all, healthy.
