Alcohol-Free Pink Gin: 5 great reasons to try it
So what is Alcohol-Free Pink Gin anyway?
Non-alcoholic spirits use the same production process as those with low alcohol content: a neutral grain spirit is added to a still with botanicals, distilled multiple times to remove all the alcohol.
Since Gin has a high ABV, you can’t call it Alcohol-free Gin
However, it’s all the ingredients and botanicals that give it the pink colour. Raspberry and rhubarb, for example.
There are some great reasons to drink Alcohol-Free Pink Gin, aside from its great taste and quality.
I’m up for it. Are you?
5- A farm can make pink Gin without alcohol.
That’s what the cow said. I’m serious!
That’s pretty sweet.
Every day you learn something!
It’s all thanks to this brand I discovered
Warner’s Pink Berry – 0% Botanic Garden Spirit is a tasty, non-alcoholic fruity spirit.
You might like this Alcohol-Free Pink Gin if you like dry Gin.
My headline would be tangy and aromatic.
It certainly felt fresh, and I was pretty impressed
I went with a Fever-Tree Tonic Light and added some raspberries, which added to the colour.
It’s excellent, especially for the strawberry, raspberry, and blackcurrant flavours. Drink it with plenty of ice, and it’s my top pick of alcohol-free pink gins.
0% abv, so no alcohol by volume.
Besides, it’s from a family farm, and it’s got some great botanicals in it.
4- This Alcohol-Free Pink Gin is one for the Raspberries.
Let’s see, how about this?
FLUÈRE – Fresh Raspberry Blend, Non-Alcoholic Distilled Spirit
This is a sideline since it’s meant to make non-alcoholic cocktails.
It’s a mocktail if you add some tonic water and fruit, right?
It will work for most people with its slightly off mix of Coriander Seed, Juniper Berries, Lavender and Lime Peel.
The brand is called FLUÈRE; yep, I know it’s a mouthful and not one you see very often.
It’s great branding, though, and a rather strange toilet bottle
Their alcohol-free Gin is distilled using hydro steam distillation technology
Even with a mixer like Fever-Tree, you can taste the aroma of coriander seed, juniper berries, lavender, and lime peel.
For extra zest, add some raspberries. But not too many, or you’ll get raspberries dominating the experience.
It is also vegan, gluten-free, allergen-free, fat-free, caffeine-free.
It won’t take care of all your housework, though!
3- You can get the VIBE with Alcohol-Free Pink Gin.
At first, I thought the bottle said VILE when it was brought out by my friend Ian.
That put me off, to be honest.
But, have no fear; it’s called VIBE.
It’s an alcohol-free rhubarb spirit that could pass as Pink Gin.
You probably won’t like this if you don’t like rhubarb.
However, the benefits of this again are numerous.
- Calories are zero
- A sugar-free treat
- Free of gluten
- Suitable for vegans
There’s no question that it’s a pink spirit, and you can pair it with tonic water, or you could make a full alcohol-free gin mocktail.
I enjoyed the bitter, sharp tones of the rhubarb, and when it comes to Pink Gin and Alcohol-Free, this is a good substitute.
It’s not always apparent that it’s alcohol-free, so be aware if that’s an issue for you.
But if you’re trying to cut back on alcohol units while still treating yourself! Then this could be the answer!
2- London Dry Anyone for Alcohol-Free Pink Gin
A pre-warning on this one. It is a 0.4% abv gin, and it’s somewhat confusing label wise.
So I did not try this option, but one of my best friends did and said it was perfect.
I have included it as it does get a good reputation, and 0.4 is still low alcohol.
Let’s remind ourselves of the stats from drinkaware.
- Alcohol-free = no more than 0.05% ABV
- De-alcoholised = no more than 0.5% ABV
- Low-alcohol = no more than 1.2% ABV
- Alcoholic = contains more than 1.2% AB
So technically, you could say a spirit with 0.4% is de-alcoholised in some way but not alcohol-free.
You could also say it’s low alcohol.
But for most people, it’s okay and much less than you would get in a ripe banana.
However, reading some of the reviews, people seem a bit confused.
And I don’t blame them if alcohol-free was not confusing enough.
What are we talking about?
Well, it’s a Pink Gin that claims to be non-alcoholic. So you can see why it’s not very clear.
It’s based on the London Dry taste if you are familiar with that.
Clean Co Clean Gin Rhubarb
Overall, it has some good stuff going for it, and the taste testers in my group enjoyed it.
- No Sugar,
- No Sweeteners
- Rhubarb Gin Alternative
- Vegan, Gluten-free
So that is good, right?
The take from the taster was that although they would not call it London Dry Gin its has a strong taste of juniper and balanced tart and tangy rhubarb.
Everyone had excellent stuff to say about it.
It seems to be produced just like Gin, so in small copper pot gin stills and infused with fruit and botanical flavour.
Calories wise it is not zero, but with a zero tonic or low-calorie mixer, it could be a good call.
It is just 12 calories per 50ml compared to an alcoholic gin; let’s say it scores well.
Although even Alcoholic Gin is probably the best drink to have on a diet.
Not that I am suggesting that.
We served it over ice and added some cut up lemons and a few strawberries as per the direction, and it worked and looked suitable for those drinking it.
Overall, if you are not bothered over the 0.4% abv, then it’s a good bet!
So that is Clean Co Clean Gin Rhubarb
1- An Alcohol-Free Pink Gin that tastes like “nature.”
Well, this brand would have you think that anyway.
And when you see the background information to the drink, I think it’s a fair claim.
It is called Everleaf Mountain.
I have left a link below.
As an amazon associate, I earn from qualifying purchases, but this does not affect what you pay. I do my best to make that clear at all times and follow FTC guidelines.
It sounds like a kids movie, I know. But to be honest, it’s been on my radar for a while, and I’m rather impressed.
I would not say a genuine gin alternative, but the makers are adamant that it is.
Who cares? It’s an alcohol-free choice, and we will take that.
It looks different to the other options, almost claiming to be born out of nature!
If you check the labelling, they are after the environmental market, and I can see why.
It’s aimed to capture the mountain essence, which means me sheep and cold treks, but hey, I can roll with it.
Does it taste nice?
And it certainly does, and joking aside, it does have a natural feel about it.
They use up to 12 sustainably sourced botanicals and an exciting mix of cherry blossom, rosehip and strawberry.
This one is made to create a spirit, in my view, rather than a pink gin.
So tonic that is low in calories and some other fruit, and you have a genuinely refreshing drink.
I would not suggest this with a gin alternative, but you could make a lovely pink fizz wine out of it.
As with many of these alcohol-alternative its got plenty of creds, so:
- low calorie
And if you are counting the calories, it comes in at only 44 calories.
Plus, it wins some awards as well.
I think awards in the alcohol-free world are essential, which means the producers are going for quality.
The impressive factor here is that it was founded and made by a sustainable conservation biologist turned bartender.
You can tell in the taste he is combining both here, and I was rather impressed.
I would buy frozen strawberries to go into it to add to the overall experience. And my favourite tonic water fever tree light.
.It could be a bit strong and bitter to drink on its own, but I think that is true of most alcohol-free gin alternatives.
Pink or not!
It has a slightly herbal aftertaste which is why the tonic is critical.
I would most certainly repurchase it.
Will everyone like it? No, probably not.
And if you go it thinking it’s an alcohol pink gin, it will be a disappointment.
These drinks are meant to mimic not be the same.
So if you go into it with this mindset, you will be in a good place.
What do you think of alcohol-free pink Gin?
