Yes, we know, we know. Before you say it. “Alcohol-Free Gin? Is that really Gin?”. But with Dry October approaching fast, we wanted to let you know about something special from the truly wonderful Scottish craft distillery, Old Curiosity, creator of Secret garden Gins.
They have just launched their first non-alcoholic spirit, distilled with six natural gin botanicals which combine to deliver a guilt-free tipple that perfectly captures the genuine flavour of a real gin.
Containing zero per cent alcohol, the The Secret Garden Non-Alcoholic Spirit is the perfect alternative to the usual G&T, ideal for nominated drivers or those who simply want to enjoy a delicious gin and tonic without the alcohol or calories, making it the perfect drink for when you’re ‘not drinking’.
The Secret Garden Small Batch Non-Alcoholic Spirit (£19.95, 50cl, 0% ABV) is distilled with Juniper, Coriander, Cardamom, Lemon Balm, Yarrow and Calendula, which are grown and hand-picked at the distillery’s very own Secret Herb Garden, based on the outskirts of Edinburgh. In contrast to other non-alcoholic spirits, The Secret Garden Non-Alcoholic Gin is completely natural, containing no preservatives or flavourings at all.
To create the perfect serve, simply fill a tall glass with ice and add 50ml of The Secret Garden Non-Alcoholic Spirit. Then top with a high quality light tonic and garnish with a slice of lemon.
Hamish Martin, Director at the Old Curiosity Distillery, commented:
“What makes The Secret Garden Non-Alcoholic Spirit so special is that by using our extensive knowledge of botanicals and distilling we have been able to create a liquid that delivers all the flavour you would expect of a classic London Dry gin, simply without the alcohol. This liquid is completely natural and contains no preservatives or flavourings, and we believe we are the first-to-market in that respect.
The Secret Garden Non-Alcoholic Spirit is created by the Old Curiosity Distillery at The Secret Herb Garden on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The Secret Garden is an award-winning herb nursery with over 600 naturally grown and tended varieties of herbs and flowers which are picked, dried and infused by hand to deliver the pure essence of nature.
It is most renowned for the highly acclaimed and multi-award-winning collection of premium, 100% natural, Secret Garden Gins which are stocked by some of the UK’s most prestigious retailers and now exported to 11 countries around the globe.
