Whether you don’t drink alcohol, don’t feel like it, or need to abstain for whatever reason, alcohol-free doesn’t have to be boring. Thankfully, non-alcoholic beverages are experiencing a rise in popularity right now, and these premium natural alcohol-free beverages are delicious, interesting, AND complex!
Don’t drink? Pregnant? On a health kick? Whatever your reason is, it doesn’t mean you should be stuck with something boring to drink. Enter: natural alcohol-free wine alternatives. The consensus is that de-alcoholised wines generally taste pretty bad - not to mention, removing alcohol is a process which requires a lot of manipulation (usually cooking the alcohol out of the wine, which alters its taste vastly). So instead, our alcohol-free beverage makers focus on crafting the perfect concoction, including fermented ingredients, to create a complex drink with under 1% alcohol. Yes - it’s worth mentioning that many alcohol free beverages DO contain a very small percentage of alcohol (0.4-0.5%) - but the same is true for some foods, such as very ripe fruit, yogurt, yeast based breads, and vinegars. For example, a very ripe banana contains the same amount of alcohol as the majority of these beverages, which is 0.4%.
Created using principles of gastronomy
These natural alcohol alternatives are the perfect premium drinks for anyone who doesn’t want to drink wine at your next special occasion. They are formulated with the utmost care and attention, with premium ingredients like cedarwood, fermented gooseberries, caremelised apricots, lavender and Yunnan tea to give depth and complexity. The makers create complex beverages with a lot of the same principles as gastronomy, work with small-scale farmers and even forage for their botanicals locally. The result is an alcohol free beverage that can easily be swapped in for wine - we can attest the reds go great with a cheese plate!
