Here is a solution for interesting drinks for when you cut back or stop drinking booze


So long boring soda and lime! Taking some booze-free options to a social gathering or being "sober curious" no longer means dull companions - in fact local crafters around New Zealand have created a wide range of delicious, innovative brews that we have curated in our "Nine & Dry" box selection that means no hangovers, no anxiety, and that are even good for you. You've likely landed on this page as you, like many these days, are thinking about your relationship with alcohol (sorry Frank the Tank, your days might be numbered).

AF Classic - Sugar per serve: 12g. An alcohol free expression of the classic Gin and Tonic – juniper, quinine, a crisp spritz of lemon, and Afterglow™ - the botanical extract that mimics the pleasant warmth of drinking alcohol – without the alcohol.


New Leaf Hopbucha - Sugar per serve: 3g. Hopbucha is special. It was made with only four ingredients. They took pure Riwaka hops from Nelson and fermented them with their organic kombucha culture. To this, they added organic cane sugar and filtered water. After a week of careful fermentation, most of the sugar is consumed and the magic of the hops is transformed into this sparkling and thirst-quenching elixir loaded with probiotics. Hopbucha is non-alcoholic and only has 3 grams of sugar but it delivers a snappy kick that beer lovers and non-beer drinkers can both appreciate. Non-alcoholic. No gluten. No guilt. Hangover sold separately.
