More and more alcohol brands are introducing 0% versions of people’s favourite tipples to encourage a healthier lifestyle
Whether you’re the designated driver, doing Dry January or you’ve just made the decision to have less alcohol during the week, it’s good to have tasty drink options that don’t make you feel like you’re missing out. Here are some great alternatives:
This beverage has everything the original has except the alcohol. Guinness 0.0 boasts the same beautifully smooth taste, perfectly balanced flavour, and unique dark colour so you can still enjoy a few pints with your friends and then drive home afterwards.
This drink has the same crisp and refreshing tang of the Bulmers you know and love but with zero alcohol. Even better, it’s made from the blend of 17 varieties of apple, all sourced locally in Clonmel, Co Tipperary.
The ethos behind this brand is to reward those who aren’t drinking with the beer they deserve. Its most recent launch is a Superior Hazy IPA that is juicy and hazy with notes of tropical and stone fruits. (Lucky Saint is 0.5% abv – this is classified as ‘alcohol free’ in Europe and ‘de-alcoholised’ in the UK.)
Getting a non-alcoholic wine right is not easy but this brand prides itself on innovative blends and strong flavours to ensure its customers feel like they are having a delicious glass of their favourite vino.
With crisp citrus notes and a juniper-led flavour, this alcohol-free gin has all that trademark Tanqueray style – minus the alcohol. It’s fantastic served with tonic over lots of ice and garnished with a wedge of lime. Or you can try it as a 0% alternative in your favourite gin-based cocktails.
Aldi offers a range of non-alcoholic options including Zerosecco, alcohol-free beer and lager as well as de-alcoholised versions of some Santa Rita wines. Ask in store for what is available.
This is a non-alcoholic sparkling alternative to prosecco that looks just like any other bottle of champagne. It is refreshing, fruity with a lovely elderflower flavour and great fizz.
If you haven’t tried Shloer in a while, now is a good chance to revisit it! With lots of new flavours, including ‘Pink Bubbly’ and zero calorie options, this brand provides a great alcohol alternative that is made to look, feel and taste special so that you can have fun and always feel part of social events.
