From low-ABV bottled cocktails to flavourful alcohol-free ‘spirits’, the availability of low- and no-alcohol products has expanded in recent years to offer consumers more choice.

To examine the quality of products available to drinkers, The Spirits Business hosted its first Low & No Masters blind-tasting competition last month. The blind tasting was held virtually, with Wine Sorted packing and delivering each entry anonymously to the judges’ homes in the UK.

The inaugural competition was judged over Zoom by Melita Kiely, editor of The Spirits Business and chair of the tasting, and Bryan Rodriguez, wine and spirits buyer for Harvey Nichols.

The tasting saw entrants judged in categories such as Pre-Mixed, Non‐Alcoholic White ‘Spirits’, Low-Alcohol and Hard Seltzers.

Here, we look at 10 products that grabbed Master and Gold medals in the competition, along with prices and tasting notes.
