NON-ALCOHOLIC SPARKLING WINE ALTERNATIVES FROM REAL

Non-alcoholic wine can be a difficult sell. Many people will make the assumption that it’s just a form of grape juice and wonder what the point is.

At REAL, we know that it’s all about the acidity, the nose, the mouth feel, and the ability to sit just right when pairing with food. We also know that it’s as much about the quality of the ingredients as it is the brewing process.

We’ve also realised that, in order to achieve those key elements, you don’t even have to use grapes in the first place.

Instead, we’re brewing fermented teas, and sommeliers, chefs and fans of non-alcoholic drinks are coming to us in droves. Our two styles – a great non-alcoholic sparkling wine replacement and an exquisite non-alcoholic Champagne option – sell in over 2,000 locations across the UK, including over 50 Michelin-starred restaurants.

A Non-Alcoholic Alternative to a Champagne

Royal Flush is our Champagne. A very regal brew.

Produced from fragrant First Flush Darjeeling, picked by hand as the first tips of tea emerge in spring. First Flush is known in India as the Champagne of Teas.

The tea is richly fragrant and creates a brew that is fresh and floral. We add nothing, but the tea alone develops notes of rhubarb, white peach and a touch of blackcurrant. The fruit and spice flavours round out the acids to make it soft and delicate.

Pair anywhere you might use a sparkling or full bodied white wine such as a chardonnay: white fish, white meat, cream sauces.

A Non-Alcoholic Alternative to a Sparkling Wine

Imagine a fresh, sparkling, dry Sauvignon Blanc.

Brewed from Dragonwell, a pan-roasted green tea from the area of Longjing in Zhejiang, China. Being pan-roasted, the tea has nutty notes of straw and hay rather than the typical cut grass notes of green teas. A much more sophisticated brew.

Dry Dragon is light and citrusy with notes of sweet lemons and grapefruit, but with a delicate leafy undertone. Dry and fresh, it is a perfect light summer spritz to be drunk at any time of day.

Pair in place of a dry white wine: shellfish, particularly oysters, green vegetables such as broccoli or asparagus, green salads and fruit.
