A refreshingly different drinks supplier

January has become THE month to abstain or to try new things in the world of drinks. #DryJanuary and #TryJanuary are trends that have stormed the industry with many wanting to start the new year a-fresh, looking to improve their lives through healthy choices or new discoveries. 

Not all indulgence needs to be seen as sinful just as not all restraint is necessarily virtuous, here's our handpicked collection of new, low or no alcohol drinks to refresh your bar with.


New to our shelves this January are Teetotal Cubre Libre and Teetotal G&T. Produced by The Temperance Spirit Company, using only all natural, high quality ingredient. After months of research and refinement of the recipes they created a mix of botanicals to replicate the taste of gin to everyone's satisfaction while keeping down the sugar content and the calorie count to just 52kcal per drink. Whilst 

Cuba Libre has all the flavour of dark rum and cola but without the alcohol. It is made from a superior blend of Caribbean flavours, selected spices and premium cola.

The Temperance Spirit Company believe that there is a gap in the market for a sophisticated adult-styled premium drink, designed for those who like the taste of alcohol, but for a variety of reasons are unable to partake in an alcohol beverage at a specific time.

 


 

Scavi & Ray Non-alcoholic Sparkling tantalises the taste buds with its fresh nose and fruity tang - allowing your customers to be involved in the on-going party, while staying alcohol-free.

The drink has its roots in Veneto, and has conquered the world in no time at all. It's a light, refreshing and authentic alternative to Scavi & Ray's award-winning Prosecco. Made from the same Glera grape as the alcoholic version, it certainly isn't 'too sweet'.

The gentle vacuum-based dealcoholisation process preserves the rich, round aromas to create a high-quality product. Scavi & Ray Non-alcoholic Sparkling is pure Scavi & Ray taste as you know it at 0% alcohol.

 


New to our shelves late last year, Long Tail Mixers are an emerging and unique brand dedicated to providing rums, whiskies and bourbons with ideal pairings and to help consumers discover dark spirits in a new light.

The mixers come in three carefully selected flavours - Blood Orange, Island Spice and Ginger Lime - they are blended from natural ingredients with carbonated spring water to produce unique and balanced mixers that are designed to enhance and complement the flavour notes of your favourite dark spirit. 

Founders, Alex and Tom comment "Long Tail is born out of a true passion for drinking dark spirits, we found it hard to find the right mixer for our favourite spirits other than the standard soft drinks and mixers that you would ordinarily add. We wanted to find the balance in mixers that are fresh, but not overpowering, invigorating, but not over-sweetened, and to produce drinks that harmonise with dark spirits, rather than mask their unique flavours. We believe we have created mixers truly unique to the market and products we think our customers and drinkers of dark spirits will love."

Long Tail mixers offer you something different, something crafted especially for drinking with dark spirits that you can enjoy again and again. We want to bring more choice and fresh flavours for your mixers, to create a new experience with every drink. 


With over three million Brits interested in taking part in 'Dry January' in 2018, it's no secret that we are all thinking more about what we drink. A recent addition to our portfolio, Sheppy's Low Alcohol Classic Cider has been crafted to have the same flavour profile of their traditional cider range but with less alcohol. It is made with a carefully selected blend of Somerset's finest traditional and dessert cider apples and is designed to be just as enjoyable as their classic dry cider.


David Sheppy, 6th generation master cidermaker, describes it for us: "at just 0.5% ABV, this traditional, classic cider remains true to our cider-making heritage and methods, featuring the same award-winning base cider blends that make up our core range."
