13 Alcohol-Free Spirits At Club Soda Mindful Drinking Festival

13 Alcohol-Free Spirits At Club Soda Mindful Drinking FestivalClub Soda, the mindful drinking movement, is once again holding the UK’s only festival for mindful drinkers, at its favourite east London hangout: Spitalfields Market. The festival boasts a fantastic line-up of botanical alcohol-free spirits; 13 brands will be making their mark at this summer’s event, including a number of new players to the UK scene.

Plus visitors looking to experience a great botanical and tonic or create the perfect Espresso Martini will get the chance to put some exciting flavours to the test by participating in one of the cocktail masterclasses, curated by Camille Vidal from La Maison Wellness and kindly supported by The British Soft Drinks Association and Martini Dolce 0.0% Sparkling.

Distilled botanical spirits at the festival include:

  • CEDER’S is a distilled non-alcoholic alt-gin made with classic gin and exotic South African botanicals and available in three variants, all juniper based.
  • Caleño is inspired by founder Ellie’s Colombian family roots.
  • The Bitter Note, all the intense and unique flavour of the traditional ‘Amaro Italiano’ with none of the alcohol.
  • Sea Arch is made by Geoff and Sarah, who run a pub in Torquay, and contains sea kelp.
  • Senser Spirits is being launched at the festival and the world’s first range of botanically-active, alcohol-free PLANT SPIRITS™ .
  • Borrago was developed by Tom Tuke-Hastings and named after the borage – a bright blue edible flower.
  • Everleaf, a non-alcoholic aperitif that can be mixed with soda or tonic in a Spritz, used in cocktails, or even just drunk straight on the rocks.
  • Peak Zero Proof is an alcohol-free cordial which when used as gin makes an alcohol free G&T which only has 6 calories in a measure.
  • Silk Tree Botanics comes from Dublin, Ireland.
  • Teetotal GnT is made in Skipton, Yorkshire.
  • Xachoh – another new launch, authentically distilled using only premium purposeful Silk Road herbs and spices to traditional recipes.
  • Stryyk – also new to the festival this summer, offering three expressions; NOT VODKA, NOT GIN and NOT RUM.
  • Atopia is the first ultra-low alcohol spirit from family distillers William Grant & Sons. At just 0.5% ABV, Atopia is now available nationwide at Sainsbury’s and Ocado.

Other sponsors of the July festival include Lindeman’s Wines, Big Drop Brewing Co and CEDER’S Alt-Gin.

Seven million people in the UK are sober curious1, and sales of adult low and no alcohol drinks are at an all time high2. Festival-goers will get the chance to taste 40 of the best alcohol-free drinks including beers, spirits, wines, kombuchas, shrubs, elixirs and a whole host of delicious cocktails invented by radical alchemists, before soaking up the sunshine in a deck chair to enjoy live DJ sets from London’s musical talent.  The free to attend event is expected to attract over 5,000 fans, from the sober curious and mums-to-be, to foodies and fitness fanatics.

All the drinks at the festival can be found on the Club Soda Guide (clubsodaguide.com) and Club Soda is collaborating with some of the best local venues for mindful drinkers on great special offers, so that attendees can continue to enjoy the great drinks they have discovered long after the festival has ended.

Club Soda co-founder Laura Willoughby MBE, said:

“The festival is great for those going sugar-free, on a fitness regime, drinking more mindfully, or going alcohol-free. 

“Not only have we built up an amazing knowledge of the range of drinks out there, but we are also witnessing the explosion in the number of well-crafted and enjoyable alcohol-free drinks. Mindful drinkers too deserve beautifully served concoctions, that take them on an intriguing taste journey and so this event gives everyone a chance to try newly released products and find a new favourite tipple.”
