Alcohol free gin launches in the UK at £20 a bottle


Borough Wines has launched an alcohol free ‘gin’ that mimics the aromatic profile and complexity of the spirit, just in time for Dry January.

The 0% alcohol ‘spirit’ is made by Surendran & Bownes and is designed to give “discerning drinkers a detox-friendly spirit alternative”.

Its makers claim the organic, vegan-friendly, alcohol-free ‘spirit’ is similar to the ‘London Dry’ gin style, but has added complexity from the use of exotic aromatics more common in perfume making than gin production.

Among the botanicals in the juniper-dominant blend are tonka bean for richness, wormwood to add a herbaceous edge, rose water, cranberry and orris root for fruity, floral notes, and coriander seed, cinnamon, cardamom and clove for spice.

Labdanum has gone on sale at Borough Wines’ nine shops priced at £20 for a 50cl bottle.
