Festive Alcohol-Free Cocktails with Ecology and Co

by Clear Head Drinks

Ecology & Co are a social enterprise producing small batch crafted, distilled alcohol-free spirits in New Zealand. Frustrated by the lack of good alcohol-free drink alternatives and feeling “socially challenged”, Founder Dianne Miller asked her husband Will, “why can’t someone produce an alcohol-free G&T?” So he did, and here we are.

Made from distilled botanicals and blended to give a flavour packed, aromatic beverage that is not only alcohol-free but also free of artificial flavours, aromas, sugar, and carbs. Ecology & Co come in two distinct styles, London Dry and Asian Spice. For an easy summer BBQ option, you can even grab one of the convenient premixed RTD options featuring London Dry and Asian Spice 👌

Ecology & Co London Dry

London Dry is a traditional style, blending juniper, coriander and lemon, with floral and pine notes for a familiar, fragrant taste and a long, refreshing finish. This one is the perfect alcohol-free replacement for a regular gin and tonic.

Ecology & Co Asian Spice

Asian Spice is a more unique and complex blend of cardamom, cassia, sweet basil and citrus. Earthy black pepper notes round off the flavour profile for a soft-spiced, warm, sensual finish. Invitingly aromatic and uniquely sweet, this one is perfect for the adventurous or evolved palate. 

Simply pair with a quality tonic or soda of your choice to enjoy a grown-up drink anytime or try one of these delicious cocktails that we think would be perfect to serve over the festive season!
