LICENSEES looking to stock up on low or no-alcohol products have more to choose from after a trio of recent launches.
Nine Elms No.18 is an alcohol-free alternative to wine that is created from infusions of 20 different flowers, herbs and spices and four types of berry juice. It is promoted for serving straight as well as including in mocktails and has been developed specifically to pair with food.
James Morgan of Nine Elms said there is “a huge gap in the market for high quality alcohol-free alternatives to the sort of alcoholic drinks that are traditionally served with food”.
Everleaf, a non-alcoholic aperitif designed by bartender Paul Matthew, is another product aimed at meal occasions.
The drink, which is developed from 18 different plants, was created after a year of research.
And a group of bartenders have launched what they describe as “a plant-powered social elixir”.
Three Spirit, which combines eleven herbs and spices, was launched earlier this year and is already stocked in 50 cocktail bars and restaurants across London.
