It's no secret that consumers are becoming more health-conscious. The 'better for you' movement is more prevalent than ever.
Now, with the biggest sober month of the year upon us, is the perfect time to invest in expanding your range of non-alc beverages - especially given that the margin on non-alcoholic drinks is similar to their alcoholic counterparts.
Over the next few posts, we'll bring you the best of four categories in the non-alc space, with a focus on products that are high in quality and charisma. Today, we're kicking off with spirits, with RTDs, beer and wine to come.
Log in to Kaddy Marketplace to discover some of the hundreds of new non-alc (and full-strength) products added weekly.
Lyre's - award-winning market leaders
To get their non-alc spirits as close to their alcoholic counterparts as possible, Lyre’s have their own flavour architect constructing the mixes. David Murphy is one of Australia’s most respected sommeliers. He picks apart flavours and builds them up again, thinking of everything down to the mouthfeel. In fact, some products contain slight amounts of chilli to replicate that alcohol burn.

ALTD - award-winning small-batch distillery
Their mission is to explore the Australian landscape and its vast botanicals creatively and alcohol-free. ALTD's three spirits are named after Australian Cicada species and are made from ingredients all exclusively from Indigenous-owned and run, ethical farmers. Their Golden Emperor spirit has a luxurious choc-orange flavour, thanks to botanicals including organic orange peels and dark roasted cocoa husks.

Brunswick Aces - distiller & distributor
It started in 2017 with a group of people who enjoyed homemade food and alcohol, until a pregnancy and a triathlon made them question what drink they could share. The group went on to create Australia's first non-alc gin (sapiir). Now Brunswick Aces both distils and imports high-quality non-alcoholic spirits, wines, beers and RTDs, and an impressive portfolio of products.
