The language of Non-Alcoholic Gin

Who doesn’t love a good G&T?

For well over a century Gin & Tonic has reigned as one of the most popular cocktails in the world. It certainly is one of my favourites. (Even when it is Alcohol-Free)



Getting schooled on any spirit gives you the opportunity to fall in love with it, when you have been on the fence before OR fall in love with it even more.

Understanding the secret language of Gin flamed my obsession even more. 

There has been a rise of artisanal distilleries around Australia in recent years, they use native, local aromatics, botanicals and ingredients to produce some incredible gins with beautiful and complex characteristics and flavours. Yes, Non-Alcoholic options too!

Instead of a neutral-based alcohol, water is distilled in a giant copper pot. Botanicals are added, and the liquid is heated, which extracts vapours from the botanicals that then flavour the water. It is a delicate, balancing process and our offerings below have it just right.

What do you do when you have decided to take a break from alcohol? For a month, or longer, or you are an athlete training for a challenge? Or a mum-to-be?

Well, rest assured there are plenty of amazing alternatives for you to try. Distilleries and producers are releasing some increasingly impressive Non-Alcoholic Gins.

You will never have to decline a good old G&T ever again, thanks to these amazing options:

Ovant Grace

 
Non-Alcoholic Gin, Australian made

With zero sugar and zero alcohol - Grace sings of juniper. An intricately balanced recipe that pays homage to the classic gin botanicals that feels both fresh and familiar.

Grace is founded on juniper and the Zinigerberacae family of spice. Delicate citrus accents are drawn from dried orange peel with integration of the whole, through the judicious use of chicory root.

A drink that pairs with tonic for a refreshingly bitter perfect serve, and goes beautifully with any citrus - lime, mandarin, or lemon.

Seedlip Spice 94

 
Non-Alcoholic Spirit Seedlip Spice

Seedlip Spice 94 captures warm notes of nature with a hero ingredient of Jamaican Allspice Berries.

To create this aromatic blend, Seedlip carefully combine the Allspice Berries w/ warm Cardamom & two bark distillates. A burst of Grapefruit gives the flavour profile a bright, tart finish.

Serve with a good quality tonic and grapefruit zest.

 

 

Seedlip Grove 42

 

Seedlip Grove 42, a zesty and complex, citrus forward blend of three types of oranges and uplifting spice distillates. Blood Orange brings warm notes to the blend which are carefully balanced with Bitter Orange & sweet Mandarin.

 

These fresh & zesty flavours are best paired with Tonic to make a sophisticated and flavourful alcohol free serve, perfect for balmy summer evenings. Or try it with a cranberry juice, simple syrup and lime juice to make a sweet and sour cocktail.

Seedlip Garden 108

Seedlip Garden 108 is a floral blend of hand-picked Peas and homegrown Hay from founder Ben Branson's Farm, with traditional garden distillates in celebration of the English countryside. It pairs beautifully with a bittersweet tonic or fresh apple cider.

For a fresh twist, pour 50ml of Garden 108 over ice, top with 125ml of Elderflower Tonic & garnish with a Cucumber ribbon.

 

Lyre’s London Spirit

 
Non-Alcoholic Gin Lyre's

Lyre's London Dry Spirit is crafted to capture the essence of a classic Gin, with flavours that are distinct and contemporary. It carries upfront notes of juniper and citrus and has a nice level of bitterness that builds and lingers. With a soft and weighted mouthfeel. 

Pair it with a good quality tonic for a classic Gin and Tonic.  

Combine it with a Lyre's Apreritif Dry with an olive to create your classic virgin Martini.
