Just recently my partner has been hankering after something other than orange juice and milk to drink so on our last shopping trip he chose some Robinsons Lemon Barley Water. Robinsons were established in 1823 and are well known for their orange and lemon barley water. Barley water does actually involve barley, apparently the barley is washed, boiled then strained before flavour and sweetener are added to produce this drink. Barley water is a cordial so it is recommended you dilute it 1 part concentrate to 4 parts water but it's really more a question of taste. It does state on the bottle that it is essential to add extra water if given to toddlers but I ... Read the complete review

The well known name of Robinsons can be traced right back as far as the early 1800's. Robinson and Belville sold Patent barley in a powder form, this powdered barley was added to boiling water to make a nutritious barley drink.

At the moment, I'm finding it hard to drink enough water, which I know I should do for my health. My colleague at work brought the Lemon Barley version of this Britvic concentrated juice drink, and I've been really addicted to it!

It comes in a 850 ml plastic bottle, and can currently be found in Tesco for the price of £1.59, which is pretty reasonable, especially as it lasts quite long being a dilute juice drink. Unlike the bottle in the picture, the ... Read the complete review

My favourite diluting juice drink is orange barley water. There is nothing more refreshing on a hot day, although I drink it whatever the weather. I guess the association with it being a drink for the summer comes from its use at Wimbledon - with a bottle of barley water and a tennis racket we all think we could be stars of the future. The drink has been associated with Wimbledon since the 1930's and would appear to have been originally been made with powdered patent barley that was added to boiling water and can be traced to 1823. The cost of a bottle is around £1.52 per litre and it is widely available in supermarkets. I find the ... Read the complete review
