This FebFast we’ve got your back with a range of new zero-alcohol wines to enjoy

non alcoholic wine

Will you be joining the Febfast challenge this year? Well, the good news is, if you are, Fourth Wave Wine has launched a delicious range of new, zero-alcohol wines to make the perfect choice for any social occasion this Febfast.  Let us introduce you to Sobriety Society, a new vegan-friendly and organically farmed range of wines; Plus & Minus Premium, and Plus & Minus Prosecco in a handy 250ml can. The demand for zero-alcohol wines has rocketed in the last twelve months with many Australians simply choosing to consume less or even no alcohol, said Ross Marshall, general manager of Fourth Wave Wine. “This is seen across all age groups but particularly amongst 18–24-year-olds, where the number of non-drinkers has doubled in the past 20 years.” He added part of the reason for the alcohol-free trend was many young people were making either healthier choices or choices more suited to their lifestyle or beliefs. In many cases either reducing their alcohol or simply having decided not to start drinking alcohol at all. He said there were those who preferred to reduce their alcohol intake, as well as a growing number of ‘Sober Curious’ in the older age groups who are looking to moderate their drinking habits. The Sobriety Society range ($17.99 per bottle) Blanc de Blancs All the fizz without the fuzzy head. A classic example of Blanc de Blancs, brimming with citrus and apple and a freshly effervescent mouthfeel. The palate is full-flavoured and ends dry with a hint of sweetness and cleansing acidity.  … Read More

Monday Distillery launches refreshing Aperitz Spritz in time for Ocsober

Monday Distillery

Ocsober is just around the corner! And the good news is Monday Distillery has partnered with one of Australia’s most popular textile brands, Bonnie and Neil, to celebrate the launch of alcohol-free, Aperitz Spritz. This sunny afternoon refresher blends spiced-gin and vermouth flavours with Italian orange, grapefruit, aromatic rosemary, cherry and a hint of espresso with smoked vanilla.  “Think of a vibrant orange spritz that will allow your mind to wander to the Amalfi Coast. Then think about how amazing the eye-catching Bonnie and Neil designed packaging will look on your table, beach towel or picnic rug,” says Monday founder Sam Manning. “Ocsober is a month when many of us consider cutting back on the booze, and the Aperitz Spritz is the perfect libation to enjoy in the sun whilst being safe in the knowledge that your head won’t fall off. It’s getting spritzed without getting blitzed.” This partnership with Bonnie and Neil marks the beginning of Monday Distillery’s packaging collaborations and the choice was an easy one, according to Sam.  “I am obsessed with linens and homewares. I’m also an avid supporter of shopping and supporting local and I’ve been a huge fan of Bonnie and Neil for a long time. When the Aperitz Spritz was dreamed up, the colours and feel of the product felt like a natural fit for their designs.” Monday are all about keeping things fresh and bright, and the new taste and package design are reminiscent of spring and summer vibes. So what ingredients are in the Aperitz Spritz?… Read More

Forget Friday, I’ve got Monday Distillery on my mind…

Monday Distillery

With Monday Distillery launching their sophisticated, non-alcoholic beverage range in time for Dry July, there’s no need to feel guilty any longer about enjoying a refreshing G&T on a school night. Gone are the days when you have to wait for Friday (virtual) drinks to quench your thirst with your favourite G&T bursting with refreshing botanicals.  With many discovering healthy alternatives during iso and turning to non-alcohol alternatives, Monday Distillery’s offerings have come at a very good time. With fun choices such as the G&T Classic mix with rosemary, seasalt and other botanicals and the G&T Exotic Spice mix with selected spice and botanicals, what’s not to love!  There are no artificial additives or flavours in the G&T range, and it’s also sugar and gluten-free. Refreshingly carbonated, Monday Distillery is naturally sweetened with stevia and has subtle hints of natural bitters such as quinine and cinchona bark.  Beautifully presented, the four-pack gift box also makes a great gift idea for your health conscious friends and family members. When organising a gathering at yours, it’s also a nice offering for the designated drivers who are yearning for a chilled, G&T in an old fashioned crystal glass with a sprig of rosemary. How very civilised!  If you’re more of a whiskey or vodka type looking for an alcohol-free alternative, the good news, it’s in the pipeline, with ‘whiskey without the wobbles’ and ‘vodka without the vengeance’ coming soon. Watch this space!
