Who is Alt + Tab Drinks?
My name is Sharon Lyons and I run a small soft drinks business in Clane, Co Kildare. I came up with my main product, a Sparkling Elderflower Drink, as something non-alcoholic, refreshing and full of flavour.
It’s hand made in small batches of cordial, infused with dried elderflowers and lemons, then diluted with sparkling Irish spring water and bottled.
I also make a range of different flavour cordials. Made with simple ingredients, some of which are from my own garden. Flavours, some seasonal, include Elderflower, Strawberry, Rhubarb and Ginger, and Grapefruit.
And there's more...
I’m also a techy! I have another job working with assistive technology which helps improve the lives of people with disabilities. People with sight loss can use Braille for reading, and keyboard shortcuts to access a computer. So I have Braille on my labels. And the name Alt + Tab is a keyboard shortcut for switching applications on a PC, hence the “Switch to Something Different”.
A percentage of the profits goes to Childvision, the National Education Centre for Blind Children, cos it’s good to give something to an organisation that does wonderful work and that loves the Alt + Tab Drinks brand.
I’m also green cos the drinks are produced with zero waste! It’s either composted, recycled or added to an ecobrick! And I reuse returned bottles as well!
