This exciting new premium brand of Non-Alcoholic drink contains all the flavours of a traditional London Gin, just without the alcohol. It is themed towards designated drivers and consumers who wish to enjoy an uncompromising drink without the effects of alcohol.

THE STORY BEHIND THE DRIVER'S TIPPLE


Created by former British racing driver Hamish Gordon, The Driver’s Tipple is described as a distinctively British alternative to gin, uncompromising in taste, just without the effects of alcohol.

This exciting new premium drinks brand is distilled in London with all the flavours of a classic London Dry gin, made from classic gin botanicals including prominent notes of juniper with ginger, angelica, cardamom, grapefruit and coriander.

Due to be released across the UK from September 2018, The Driver’s Tipple caters to designated drivers and consumers who wish to enjoy a sophisticated drink, without the alcohol. And what’s more, its entirely sugar-free ingredients also make it a low calorie alternative appealing to those seeking a health-conscious alternative to a cocktail.

Having given up drinking alcohol, I noticed a distinct lack of decent drink alternatives that are not overly sweet and sickly, and also taste good. I’ve always enjoyed a good gin and tonic and so it’s been really exciting to develop a drink with all the flavour of a traditional gin, just without the effects of alcohol.
— Hamish Gordon, Founder of The Driver's Tipple

Produced in 70cl bottles The Driver’s Tipple is being brought to market with a dose of quintessentially British humour synonymous to the brand, featuring characters conceived by renowned illustrator and cartoonist Bryn Parry OBE.

Reviews


Saturday afternoon Gin and Tonic in the sunshine anyone? OH YES PLEASE!! Even better the taste of Gin and tonic and I’m not having to worry about calories or a potential hangover. A close friend of mine, also based here in Oxfordshire, gave up alcohol 2 years ago and has lost over 2 stone. Being a Gin-lover, he has just launched a very exciting distilled spirit with all the flavours of a dry Gin, including juniper, just minus the alcohol. My hubby and I have just had it served over ice with a Schweppes slimline tonic and a wedge of lime.

Ingredients includes juniper, ginger, angelica, cardamom, grapefruit and coriander, is entirely Sugar Free /sweetener free and so in theory it should be 0SP on Weight Watchers but I’m waiting for them to confirm.

I’ve been given some to try for myself as a gift and so I wanted to share with you all as I reckon a few of you might quite like this. It’s not even in the shops yet so I was very excited to try it. Admittedly it’s not cheap at £27 a bottle but then neither is the Seedlip competitive product at £28 which has in itself been a very successful drink. I know I’m hooked already and I’m honestly not just saying that. He has literally just launched it over the last couple of weeks and as of yesterday it’s available to buy from his website www.thedriverstipple.com which can also be found in the link on his bio of his Instagram page @thedriverstipple he’s hoping to have it available in the shops soon too so do keep an eye out for it as I really hope it’s a great success for him.

You may know I’ve been sticking to #MocktailMonday serves since the end of January, so no I’ve not fallen off the Monday wagon today, this isn’t a G&T or is it…
.
In fact it’s a new Non-Alcoholic Spirit called The Drivers Tipple from The Driver’s Drink Company! Recently launched in the UK by former racing driver Hamish Gordon, he set out to create a juniper forward drink with the flavours of a London Dry Gin, but with zero alcohol
.
It’s aimed at those who don’t drink, no longer drink like Hamish, or indeed are not wanting to drink e.g. a designated driver and want something flavoursome to drink. So that coupled with Hamish’ motoring background explains the name and the reason for creating this new drink
.
In addition to Juniper the other botanicals include Coriander, Angelica, Cardamom, Ginger Grapefruit & Mint many of the botanicals you find in a classic London Dry Gin. The perfect serve recommends 50ml of The Driver’s Tipple over ice with tonic with lemon or lime wedges. I added both via some strips of lemon zests, 3 lime slices, but also 8-10 Juniper berries, paired with Fevertree Premium Indian Tonic
.
As with some other zero alc spirits there’s no sugar, salt or fat. But being juniper forward it does offer an alternative to a G&T as the flavours did come through. I could pick out the Juniper for sure, the citrus grapefruit comes through as tart sour note and with angelica and strong cardamom and subtle ginger finish
.
It comes in stylish bottle, with 2 labels designed renowned illustrator & cartoonist Bryn Parry OBE that plays on bygone English humour.
.
Their timing is great as they gear up for #SoberOctober and I look forward to creating a Mocktail that plays to flavour profile of this drink. In the mean time I doth my cap and raise my glass to another #ZeroHero for this creation and adding to the growing trend and demand for drinks in this segment.
