A few local drinks to help you go dry in July

Artisan Distillers The Deceiver Gin

A pretty drink that changes colour and is bound to be a crowd pleaser. When mixed with tonic water this zero alcohol gin changes from bright purple to pink. The magic is due to the fascinating butterfly pea, a flower that changes colour when the pH balance is altered.

Made from Langhorne Creek chardonnay grapes, this bottle of bubbles is light and well balanced, sparing its drinker from the overwhelming sweetness often associated with non-alcoholic wine. It’s low in sugar and calories, making it a good fit for those watching their waistline.

Sidewood Estate Nearly Naked sauvignon blanc 0% alcohol

No need to find a cause for celebration to crack a bottle of Sidewood’s zero alcohol sauvignon blanc. Produced with grapes from the Adelaide Hills vineyard, this sauv blanc has delicate flavours of gooseberry, citrus peel and grapefruit. Sidewood’s marketing manager Sam Evans says it pairs well with seafood dishes or a mushroom risotto.
“It’s really good at barbecues and dinner parties,” he adds.

Hills Cider Company Non-Alcoholic Apple

Crisp and refreshing, this fruit-driven non-alcoholic cider supports local farmers by using Australian apples. Quality or flavour isn’t sacrificed, with the zero alcohol beverage bringing about subtle notes of crunchy apple, vanilla and lemon while being slightly sweet. It contains no added concentrate, flavours, sugar or water.
