For folks who enjoy the complex flavours alcohol provides, but without the hangovers

Whether it’s for health or safety reasons, there’s no shame in avoiding alcohol. During times when you’d prefer going for an alcohol-free drink, try these following few non-alcoholic spirits and beers. Besides being suitable for any and every occasion, you’ll also be able to remain sober and alert while enjoying them, and that’s a huge plus. Bottoms up!


Carlsberg Alcohol Free Pilsner and Alcohol Free Wheat
 

These libations by Danish brewery Carlsberg are alcohol-free creations set to be game-changers. Created with not more than 0.5% ABV (making them technically alcohol-free), these Pilsners and Wheat beers are also meant to go well with food, making them great pairing options. The refreshing and lager-like Pilsner should pair perfectly with meats, while the easy-drinking Wheat beer will work well with seafood. Both are now available at convenience stores, major supermarkets and hypermarkets islandwide.


Heineken 0.0
 

Health conscious folks who wish to live a little, this one’s for you. A low-calorie, non-alcoholic beverage that can be consumed anywhere and at any time, the Heineken 0.0 boasts fruity notes as well as a slightly malty flavour. That quintessential Heineken taste stays too, so you won't know the difference between this and the actual beer. Just grab these for the fam at major supermarkets and convenience stores islandwide.


Lyre’s Dry London Spirit
 

Named after the Australian lyrebird that’s known for its ability to mimic sounds, Lyre’s and its full range of non-alcoholic spirits has arrived in Singapore. Unlike most non-alcoholic spirit replacements, no distillation process is used in the making of its products. Instead, the blending of natural essences and extracts take centrestage here. Try one of Lyre’s best selling products, the Dry London Spirit, that’s best used as a gin replacement in the making of a classic G&T. Or, if you prefer bourbon, choose the American Malt. Find any of their 13 variants at the Marketplace or select Cold Storage outlets.
