Seedlip Imbibing Without Booze

Imbibing without booze was once a sad state of affairs. But in recent years, top mixologists have started to put considerable thought into their no-ABV drinks in order to make a zero-proof libation with the sophistication and complexity of a classic cocktail. 

Enter Ben Branson, an entrepreneur with a small copper still, a background in farming dating back nine generations, and a desire to elevate the alcohol-free cocktail. Using techniques he borrowed from a 17th-century book about non-alcoholic distilling (“The Art of Distillation,” 1651), Branson created Seedlip, a distilled zero-proof spirit using all-natural botanicals without artificial colorings, flavorings, or, for that matter, calories.  

In this box you’ll find Seedlip Spice 94 — an aromatic blend distilled from six botanicals: Jamaican allspice berries, lemon peel, grapefruit peel, cardamom, American oak bark and Cascarilla bark. Mix it with tonic and a squeeze of lime for a ginless gin & tonic, or get adventurous and try it with some of your favorite mixers (we highly suggest Fever-Tree Spiced Orange Ginger Ale). However you enjoy it, be sure to raise your glass to Ben Branson, a true innovator.
