A year in review
It's Clear Head Drinks' first birthday! 🥳
To celebrate, I caught up with Ricky to reflect on Clear Head Drinks' first year in business being New Zealand's first and largest online store for non-alcoholic and alcohol-free drinks.
We chat about the highs and lows of the first year – kicking off with the launch at Beervana which was closely followed by New Zealand’s longest lockdown, causing a magnitude of supply chain issues and delivery delays. Thankfully those days are behind us now!
We reflect on the rapidly changing non-alcoholic drinks market, how the attitudes and perceptions towards non-alcoholic drinks has changed alongside an increasing demand for top quality non-alcoholic beverages, even within the short space of one year.
I find out what the top selling products have been - I can’t say I was surprised to see the Noughty range of non-alcoholic wines by Thomson & Scott featuring high on the list. Wines from this range are among my personal favourites, the sparkling Rose in particular is hard to beat!
We chat about seeing a bunch of locally produced non-alcoholic craft beers coming to market, and the standard of these beers being outstanding. With the likes of the All Day Non-Alcoholic IPA from Bach Brewing and Garage Project's Tiny, these beers are on par with some of the best available from around the globe. We look forward to seeing more great non-alcoholic craft beers coming out of NZ breweries in the year ahead...
We also talked about some exciting new beverages that Clear Head Drinks will be releasing soon - watch to find out what they've got in store for us to try next!
