When it comes to mid-year, you may be looking for the chance to refresh your body to prepare for the rest of the year ahead. Try your hand at reducing your alcohol intake by partaking in Dry (or damp, we’ll get into that later) July and use it as a chance to reset and experiment with fun drinks and non-alcoholic options.

If you’re sober-curious and want to experiment with alcohol-free options, there are endless options available to experiment with. Sites like Sans Drinks are dedicated to creating accessible alcohol-free alternatives to your favourite tipples and most bottle shops offer non-alcoholic options. 

Aaron Trotman, founder of label NON who creates luxurious and unique alcohol-free beverages, explains it’s never been easier to go sober without sacrificing flavour.

“As awareness of alcohol’s drawbacks grows, demand for better alternatives is rising. Non-alc products have dramatically improved in the last few years, with top chefs now choosing pairing them at the best restaurants around the world,” Aaron told WHO.

“At NON, we’ve redefined the wine occasion with premium, ingredient-led non-alcoholic beverages. Our original formulations aren’t mimicking any wine style – they’re their own creations.”

If you’re stuck at where to start, read on to find our top picks for alcohol-free alternatives that are full of flavour and will satisfy your tastebuds and sober-curious musings.
