Sayvll Beverage Co alcohol free drinks are the answer to NO more hangovers

Have you ever gone along to a party and felt a little left out as you can’t join in with your friends and family and enjoy a nice refreshing cocktail as you are driving or just can’t drink alcohol? Well now thanks to Savyll you to now can sip and enjoy a refreshing tasty non alcoholic cocktail which really does look and taste like the real thing.

A non alcoholic drink is usually known as a virgin cocktail or mocktail and is usually styled around a classic cocktail except without the alcohol. Non alcoholic drinks have been around for decades and used to be known as Temperance Drinks. The first mention of mocktail came about in America 1916.

Evolving over time the 1980s saw the resurgence of a mocktail movement with sugary drinks. Following the sophistication of cocktail culture of the 2000s, the zero proof drink became more refined.

With mocktails becoming more and more popular, as many people are swinging away from alcohol they can now often be found on cocktail menus within restaurants and bars. Plus many supermarkets also sell mocktails within bottles and cans.

Did you know that mocktails are are crafted using more or less the same combinations of sodas, juices, herbs, and syrups to create a refreshing mocktail, just minus the alcohol. Mixologists also use the same mixology methods and tools in which they would use when making a regular cocktail.

I was kindly gifted courtesy of Savyll their two great gift packs the Simplicity Tasting Pack and Bon Vivant Tasting Pack.

Savyll Beverage Company

The Savyll Beverage Company was set up by founder Avnish Babla as he believed that everyone deserves classic and distinguished alternatives to alcohol when choosing not to drink.

We are a nation of gin drinkers, and as a lover of gin myself, I and many others are naturally curious about how gin is made and flavoured. Thanks to Vemacity I learnt the basis of how to make a gin with botanicals at home. I never knew that gin started from infusing vodka with juniper berries for 48 hours before adding botanicals to flavour and infuse for yet another 48 hours. After 96 hours it then was soon gin o’clock time where I could celebrate with a lovely glass of my homemade flavoured gin within a balloon copa gin glass.

I was gifted on a courtesy basis from Vemacity their ultimate gin making kit and engraved gin glasses.
