New Year Trends

Our theme for 2022 is exploration, and what better time to expand and explore your palette, try something new and possibly find a new Harvest favourite.

With a new year comes a fresh start. It’s a time to reflect on the past year and plan for the year ahead. This year, our wish for you is to create special moments, lasting memories and new traditions that carry with you for years to come. For those looking to celebrate with non-alcohol alternatives, we carry a delightful collection of alcohol-free options. Here are a few of our favourites for 2022.

Sobrii 0-Gin is distilled using a traditional blend of botanicals, including juniper berries, coriander, allspice, star anise. Also added is Canadian Ginseng, grown in Ontario, to create a uniquely Canadian flavour and give a nod to our natural heritage. Sobrii 0-Gin finishes clean with lasting acidity, and signature dryness one would expect from a London Dry style of gin.

Sobrii 0-Tequila was inspired by artisanal tequila and mezcal distilleries in Mexico.  Familiar tequila taste and heat are achieved by infusing agave with spicy jalapeno, hot black pepper, savoury coriander and Canadian ginseng. Sobrii 0-Tequila is best served chilled with a premium cocktail mix.

Enjoy the same great taste of Budweiser you know and love without the alcohol. Bud Zero is a non-alc brew with 50 calories, 0 grams of sugar and is made for those who want to cut back on alcohol without missing out on the full flavour and refreshment of Budweiser.

Master Brewers started from zero and spent years exploring, brewing, and tasting before they finally created a recipe defined by its refreshing fruity notes and soft malty body – perfectly balanced. One that deserves the Heineken mark. Of course, with the uncompromising Heineken characteristics since 1873: made with top ingredients and Heineken’s unique A-Yeast. It wasn’t easy, but not impossible.

Benjamin Bridge Piquette Zero is a lively and delicious alcohol-free wine-style beverage, offering a creative and unprecedented craft option to industrially dealcoholized wines that are so often stripped of their character. Not identical to wine, this new sensory experience is to be discovered for its own unique deliciousness.

Upstreet Libra Non-Alcoholic Pale Ale is about finding your balance. The balance between being social, and being busy. Between being fun, and getting things done. A light, fresh artisanal beer that fits your life, not the other way around.

For those looking for lighter, less sweet, alcohol options, we love the NÜTRL7 Mixed Pack. A collection of stronger NÜTRL7 Vodka Sodas in great looking, easy to carry, “suitcase” mixed packs that offer the variety of four Blackberry, four Black Cherry and four Black Raspberry.

For a Canadian interest, Guy Lafleur Gin is distilled from 100% Canadian grains. Gin no. 10 is peppery and powerful. The floral and subtly spicy side of this exceptional gin will delight connoisseurs and will not fail to inspire mixologists.

So whether you’re looking for an alcohol alternative or trying something new, we have an exciting option to fit any celebration. Cheers to a New Year and to new beginnings!
