Have You Tried a “Nocktail”?

Have you ever wanted to enjoy the presentation and flavour complexity of a hand-crafted cocktail, but without the effects of the alcohol? Welcome to the world of “Nocktails” or “Mocktails”.

These beverages share a sense of sophistication with their alcoholic counterparts, but lack the addition of actual liquor. Nocktail recipes typically combine various juices, syrups, fresh ingredients, sodas, and even non-alcoholic/simulated spirits to provide the consumer with a complex and diversely flavoured, non-alcoholic beverage alternative to traditional soft drinks.

Due to a growing demand specifically among Generation X and Millenial populations, the range of non-alcoholic/simulated spirits on the market is increasing. A brand called “Stryyk” has just launched 2 new zero-proof distilled spirits in the UK, Stryyk “Not Gin” and Stryyk “Not Rum”.

Stryyk claims their zero-proof spirits contain “all of the spirit, with none of the alcohol”, and both varieties also contain zero sugar, zero fat, zero carbs, and zero artificial flavours. Unique from it’s competitors in the non-alcoholic sector, Stryyk claims their spirits provide intense flavour profiles that make them a satisfying alternative to alcohol when served neat or added to a Nocktail.
