The recent dry January was by far the most popular.
Lots of people are cutting down on drinking, or even quitting altogether. But, until recently, doing so meant switching to soft drinks or boring old water. Worthy alternatives to booze just didn’t exist. But now, there are incredible alcohol-free drinks, including spirits, beers, wines and more. There are also low-alcohol options like 0.5% beers.

Another new trend is so-called ‘adult soft drinks’. These are slightly more interesting alternatives to classic softs like Diet Coke or Fanta. Think tonic water but more interesting. There are fiery ginger beers, tangy shrubs, playfully pink rose lemonades, new creations like ‘soft punch’ with flavours like blood orange, and even drinking vinegars (much nicer than they sound).
We were sceptical - as many were - about all these alcohol-free drinks. But, some have impressed us. We’ve gathered our absolute favourites into this list, in the hope of spreading the word about companies that are getting it right. There are some alcohol-free beers, for example, where you can’t actually tell the difference. There are even alcohol-free spirits that will enable you to create seriously classy mocktails for your friends.
We’re not saying drinking is going out of fashion. After all, who doesn’t love an ice-cold pint, a glass of wine or gin and tonic after a long day at work? And when out for the night, the occasional cocktail can be a real treat. But drinking a little less could do most of us some good health-wise. And what better way to do so than a top-notch alcohol-free alternative. That way, you won’t miss out on the fun, just the hangover.
So, without further ado, here they are. The cream of the crop when it comes to low or no alcohol drinks. We’ve split them into four categories to make things a little easier to find.
Skip to the right section:
- Best non-alcoholic and low alcohol spirits
- Best adult soft drinks

What: For some occasions, only bubbles will do.

Saicho makes sparkling no-alcohol teas which take the place of Prosecco beautifully. The team behind the brand is headed up by Matthias Lattaile, an award-winning mixologist and industry expert well-used to working with Champagne houses. So, he knows a good serve when he sees one. You serve this chilled, in a champagne glass, just like the real thing and there’s a true sense of occasion when you crack a bottle open with that signature hiss of bubbles. We loved the floral notes and gentle acidity these brought, and thought they made an exciting alternative to the usual supermarket options without falling into the sugary pitfal that many others fave. There are three flavours to choose from – jasmine, Darjeeling and hojicha – and each bring a unique and complex profile which work equally as well as an aperitif or paired with food.
