As more people than ever ditch booze  – especially in the run up to the stressful Christmas period – drinks brands are launching a ton of new non-alcoholic spirits for all occasions.

With sales of ‘no and low’ alcohol set to rocket by 455% by the end of 2020, here are six new brand new non-alcoholic spirits deserving of a place on your drinks trolley…

Six amazing non-alcoholic spirits

WINE YOU CAN DRINK AT BREAKFAST

Say a sober hello to the first non-alcoholic “wine” designed to be drunk with gourmet grub. Nine Elms No.18 is made from 20 different flowers, herbs, spices and berries. You’ll find it at Michelin-starred joints like The Clove Club. Undoubtedly the best thing to happen to Dry January 2020.

The mocktail: Mix 75ml of Nine Elms, 10ml of cold brewed coffee and 75ml of Fevertree Light Tonic. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a twist of pink grapefruit.

The mocktail: Top with ginger ale and garnish with a twist of orange.

LIDL’S ALT GIN

Aldi was first to launch an alc-free gin, so it was only a matter of time before arch-rival Lidl returned fire. CeroCero is Lidl’s spin on a premium 0.0% gin – and it’s half the price of Seedlip. Prefer a premix? Hackney-based Square Root make ace non-alcoholic spirits, including this booze-free G&T

The mocktail: Top with tonic and garnish with a slice of pink grapefruit

Buy: £9.99 lidl.co.uk

ALCOHOL-FREE “APEROL SPRITZ”

Remove the alcohol from the world’s greatest cocktails? It sounds crazy but that’s what Highball Cocktails has done. Set to be one of the hottest non-alcoholic spirits brands of 2020, the range consists of six booze-free classics including Cosmopolitan, Mojito and Italian Spritz. They’re healthy too – each bottle contains less than half the calories of a regular cocktail.

THE TROPICAL BOOZELESS WONDER

In 2017 Ellie Webb was at a latin-funk club in Bristol. She didn’t want a hangover but all the barman could offer was a Diet Coke, so she did what anyone would do: fly to Columbia to create a banging tropical-flavoured non-alcoholic spirit. Caleño is an infusion of citrus and spice botanicals distilled in stainless steel drums. Tangy with a hint of pineapple.

Serve: Top with pineapple juice and a dash of lime
