February 2022: Valentine’s Day Date Night Competition / Lighter nights & lighter mornings

We hope you are all well and enjoying the lighter nights and mornings – it certainly feels that Spring is just around the corner in the Chiltern Hills, and for that we are very excited!


Mel has been training hard over the last 3 months and successfully completed the London Winter Run this past weekend, in aid of Cancer Research. The race was a 10k, the atmosphere was great and we are very proud of her. As many of you might be aware, Mel started running as part of her own recovery from cancer, which marked in her words, ‘a turning point in life’, and ultimately led to her founding Twelve Below. If you would like to donate to Cancer Research, please follow this link: www.londonwinterrun.co.uk/fundraisers/MelanieMcNelly


In other news, we are busy preparing for the year ahead over at Twelve Below HQ and have some exciting brand partnerships to let you know about for February. In aid of Valentine’s Day, we are sharing the love and have teamed up with our friends over @box42_dates to give one lucky winner the chance to win some delicious Twelve Below Tonics and a Box 42 & A Night with Aphrodite. Box 42 send beautifully curated boxes with everything you need for a fun date night in. To enter, simply head over to @twelvebelow.drinks on Instagram to enter. You will need to like the post, tag 3 friends, and follow both brands. Good Luck!

We have also partnered with @wisebartender from February and throughout the rest of 2022. We will be appearing in their new monthly subscription boxes – for just £12.99/month, inviting consumers to better get to know the non-alcoholic brands featured. Do let us know which non-alc brands you think go well with our great tasting, all natural and low calorie drinks and mixers. Wise Bartender have a comprehensive range of the best non-alcoholic brands, all in one place. If you are interested in learning more about Wise Bartender, take a look here: https://wisebartender.co.uk/.

Our monthly blog would not be complete without our favourite cocktail (neither are we tee-total!) – this month, we are obsessed with Cupids Passion, a Valentines cocktail created by @be.ginspired



You'll need...⁠

-50ml Greenall’s Gin

-50ml Passionfruit Syrup

-15ml Simply Syrup

-20ml Lemon Juice

Served in a high ball glass and topped up with our Pear & Cardamon Tonic

For the rest of February, we are continuing to prioritise our health and wellness goals while ensuring we are having fun and keeping a balance – easier said than written admittedly! We would love to hear how you are spending these last few weeks in February, and as we offered last month, our favourite responses will win a free mixed case of Twelve Below. If you would like to win, do reach out to us either on email at Melanie@the-chiltern-mix.co.uk on Instagram or Facebook.

Stay well, keep looking after yourselves and we look forward to hearing from you.

All the best,

Mel & Ross

Founders of Twelve Below.
