With Father's Day fast approaching, many of us are struggling for gift ideas. So I've put together a list of alcohol-free drinks that I think will go down a treat with the dad in your life.
For dads that like gin
The taste: With the same iconic flavour of the original Gordon's gin, this zero alcohol version has a smooth texture, and a complex flavour profile featuring bold juniper notes and a subtle hint of citrus.
What customers are saying: "This is truly the best alternative gin; it smells and tastes like normal gin - so happy to have found it and highly recommend it."
The taste: Capturing the essence of a classic Dry London gin, this alc-free spirit is the perfect base for any gin mocktail, with aromas of orange blossom, lime, jasmine and juniper. Featuring distinct juniper and citrus flavours along with earthy notes that fill the mid-palate, the finish is warm, pepperberry and dry.
What customers are saying: "Team it with a good tonic and a slice of lime and it’s close to the taste of a real G and T. A very grown up drink."
The taste: This set contains a London Dry, a Apéritif Rosso and an Italian Orange.
For Dads that like Rum
The taste: With all of the characteristics of a classic spiced rum; hints of caramel, toasted nuts, spiced vanilla, toffee and fig.
What customers are saying: "Pretty good! I enjoyed it."
The taste: With the essence of a classic dark rum this alc-free spirit features aromas of dark, salty caramel, hints of vanilla, orange and maple.
What customers are saying: "It certainly doesn't disappoint. It has a warmth, slight sweetness and spicy notes that you'd associate with drinking a rum and mixer."
For Dad's that like Bourbon and Coke
The taste: "Crafted to capture the essence of Bourbon and Coke this drink has rich flavours of vanilla, toasted nuts and complex herbal notes and a long mellow finish.
What customers are saying: "Smells exactly like a true bourbon or whiskey and cola."
For Dad's that like beer
The taste: With both Halletauer and Saaz hops alongside Munich malt this beer has a deliciously balanced flavour.
What customers are saying: "This is one of my favorite non-alcoholic beers. It was hoppy and not watery at all."
Plus & Minus Pinot Noir
The taste: A highly refreshing ale that's 100 per cent Aussie, with a fruity aroma, golden hue and crisp finish.
What customers are saying: "Excellent flavour and definitely the best non-alcoholic beer I’ve tried. Highly recommend!"
Budvar Budejovicky B:FREE
The taste: This is an easy drinking and refreshing non-alcoholic lager with true beer characteristics. Expect a bold, sweet, toasted malt profile from Moravian barley, a fresh, lightly spiced citrusy aroma from Saaz hops and the perfect hint of bitterness.
What customers are saying: "As close to the original as you can get!"
The taste: With a crisp, hoppy, bitter flavour, Hero looks, smells and tastes like a quality beer.
What customers are saying: "I think if you gave this to a beer drinker they wouldn't be able to tell the difference between this and a full strength beer!"
For Dad's that like wine
The taste: This wine has aromas of dark fruit, subtle vanilla and spice tones. The palate is well balanced and has a fine tannin structure and soft mouthfeel.
What customers are saying: "Best non alcoholic red I've tried."
The taste: This Pinot Noir features aromas of red fruits and dried herbs. It's medium-bodied with silky tannins and the palate has notes of cherry and dark chocolate.
What customers are saying: "When I opened this bottle I was shocked at the smell - I’d was exactly like opening a regular bottle of red. It’s light to drink, but has the smell and mouth feel of a nice red."
For Dad's that like a surprise!
