DRY JAN LIBATIONS | THE NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINKS THAT ACTUALLY TASTE GOOD
Maybe you’re still hanging from the festive season, maybe you’re off the sauce for good…either way you can still make abstaining from alcohol for thirty one whole days not just bearable, but actually taste good too. From bubbly teas to botanical liquors and spirits – beer drinkers, we’ve got you covered with 0% brews too – here’s the non-alcoholic drinks we’ll be sipping on this Dry Jan…
This craft distilled alcohol-free spirit will fill that G&T shaped hole in your life during January. There’s two options to choose from, either a spicy, bold Sea Buckthorn one or a floral Verbena number that promises a zing. And these bottles are organically and ethically sourced, championing eco-friendly practices. Basically virtuous.
Straight from the Wiltshire countryside comes Sprigster’s non-alcoholic botanical liquor. The magical homegrown ‘mash’ of botanicals (featuring hops, fennel, rhubarb and ginger) is homegrown, naturally unfiltered and vegan friendly. Keep it as a simple aperitif with dry tonic or mix it into your fave cocktail.
JING Sparkling Tea
Partial to a glass of sparkling vino? Pop a bottle of JING’s sparkling tea with its jasmine aromas, hints of honey and a dry texture to stay in on the action. Perfect for those January occasions where you still need to raise a glass.
Listening to plants and people is at the heart of Everleaf aperitifs, so these non-alcoholic options are all natural and sourced sustainably. There’s one for spritz drinkers, one for gin drinkers and one for those that love a pink gin. Cheers to that.
Co-founded by model Constance Jablonski and Maggie Frerejean-Taittinger, French Bloom gives you everything you want from a fine wine, bar the booze. Le Rosé is 0% alcohol (they also do a Le Blanc) and is full of cherry, peach and wild berry flavours.
Off the wagon has never felt so easy with Lyre’s line-up of non-alcoholic spirits. From the Pink London Spirit to the American Malt to an Amaretti liqueur, you’ll be spoilt for choice this Dry Jan.
If you’re off the sauce you can still treat yourself a to bit of fizz with this Sparkling English Blush Kombucha from Suffolk-based non-alcoholic microbrewery L.A Brewery. It’s got fresh, floral notes of rhubarb and elderflower and great acidity, and as a bonus, it’s low in sugar and high in gut-friendly bacteria.
All fans of dark and smoky spirits like rum and whisky need to have Dandy Smoke from Crossip on their radar. It’s got notes of lapsang souchong, pine, ginger, cinnamon, clove and chilli, making for a rich and complex flavour, and it’s ideal for shaking up into sour cocktails or mixing simply with soda or cola.
