Which coconut water tastes best?


Grace coconut water juice drink with real coconut pieces

95p for 310ml


As the “juice drink” label suggests, this is only 85% coconut water, topped up with sugar and quivery pieces of young coconut that are an interesting addition (a smooth version is also available). It has a slightly thin sweetness, which makes it feel more like a coconut-flavoured soft drink than an actual coconut water.

Naked 100% coconut water

£2.50 for 500ml


Made partially from concentrate, the pack boasts “naturally 40% less sugars than other coconut waters”, and it does indeed have a very restrained sweetness, though the fact it contains the water of three-quarters less of a coconut than the same volume of Innocent’s version (see below) might explain the lower calorie count.

Innocent 100% coconut water

£2.50 for 500ml


Innocent coconut water

This has a very robust, nutty flavour, and is rich without being overly sweet. Refreshing to find a coconut water that actually tastes of coconut.

Chi 100% coconut water

£1.80 for 330ml


A rather savoury water with a toasted, almost sesame-like character. I bet this would be interesting in a cocktail.

Vita Coco 99% coconut water

£1.75 for 330ml


Vita coconut water

This unashamedly full-flavoured example packs some serious coconut punch – almost like drinking a non-alcoholic piña colada.
