But what's trending this month? There has definitely been a seasonal swing away from winter warmers with Rose, sparkling wine and mocktails all flying off the shelves.
Here are the big trends that I'm seeing.
We Love Gin Mocktails
Lyre's Dry London is a consistent best seller at Sans Drinks. But joining the Dry London in non-alcoholic gin sales is the new Hellfire Blush and Gordon's 0.0.
(If you want to read more about all the new alcohol free gin in the shop, have a look at this post on 7 new gins to try)
The complex flavour profile of this Tasmanian non-alcoholic gin includes a hint of Szechuan pepper and pimento on the finish.
What customers are saying: " My current favourite Non Alcoholic Gin! Spice heavy like a winter gin rather than a traditional London Dry style, and with more depth of flavour than some of the others I've tried."
From the global best seller, Gordon's Gin, Gordon’s Alcohol-Free 0.0% has the same iconic flavour as the original gin, with a smooth texture, a complex flavour bold juniper notes and a subtle hint of citrus.
What customers are saying: "Over the past few weeks during COVID lockdown restrictions, my family members and I have been having a virtual happy hour making gin based cocktails. Gordon's gin has been perfect and has gone well with all the cocktail recipes so far."
New from Naked Life, this ready to drink Negroni has a full flavour profile featuring cherry, apple, lemon and orange extracts with the bitterness of cinchona and bitter orange.
Spring has been in the air, and judging by the orders coming in, that means non-alcoholic Rose.
An instant favorite when it hit Australia in early August, Noughty Rose is hitting her stride now that warmer weather is coming. A beautiful rose in colour, this sparkling wine is invigorating on the palate, with a perfect balance of smoothness and acidity.
what customers are saying: "I would drink this any summer's afternoon, it was even better with no alcohol, no post drink headache. Tempted to now buy a case!"
The newly released, 2021 vintage, has a bolder flavour than the 2020. Boasting aromas of strawberries and a bright palate of ripe berry fruit and a dry profile.
What customers are saying: "I love Rose and this is amazingly close to Rose's I used to drink, you forget it isn't alcoholic."
If you want to get your hands on one of my discounted Spring Rose bundles you will have to hurry as there are only a few left now.
