Gifts for Christmas with no alcohol

Are you looking to put together some hamper gifts for Christmas with no alcohol? Perhaps you're making up a box of ethical, sustainable treats. Whether you're buying for a family member or purchasing gifts for employees, it's always good to go for an alcohol-free option. It's best not to assume anything about people's drinking choices. The thing with going for drinks with no alcohol as gifts is that everyone can enjoy them. Even those of us who do enjoy alcohol tend to do so in moderation. So, gifts for Christmas without alcohol always have their place. Let's take a look at a few ideas. You'll be pleasantly surprised how many alcohol-free drinks are available in Switzerland these days!

Alcohol-free wine

 

Are you driving to visit friends this Christmas? It's always polite to arrive with a bottle of wine. But if you're not drinking yourself, it can feel like rather an empty gesture. Why not opt for wine gifts for Christmas with no alcohol? Whether you prefer red, white or rosé, we have the perfect alcohol-free wine for you.

 

Thomson & Scott Noughty Alcohol Free Rouge

 

It is indisputably difficult to find alcohol-free red wine that tastes just as good as its alcoholic counterparts. Fortunately, Noughty Rouge does just that. Dealcoholized to under 0.5% ABV, this delicious wine fully retains the rich flavour of a beautifully balanced South African red. Its deep colour holds hints of red fruit, black pepper and rose petal, along with candied cherries and the tannins of French oak.

 

For anyone looking for a healthy alternative this Christmas, Noughty Rouge contains only 14 calories per glass. Its sugar content is just 2.5 grams per 100 ml.

 

We suggest serving this wine chilled. For food pairings, this can be treated as a deep, rich red wine. Think strong cheese, creamy mushroom dishes and dark chocolate.

Thomson & Scott Noughty Alcohol-Free Sparkling Chardonnay

 

If you are a white wine lover, you are in for an absolute treat with Noughty's alcohol-free chardonnay. Like its red cousin, this delicious sparkling white has been dealcoholized whilst retaining its rich flavour. At only 2.9 grams of sugar per 100 ml and 14 calories per glass, this is a much healthier option than other low-alcohol wines.  

 

Better still, it really is ideal for everyone. Certified halal, gluten free, vegan and organic, the bottle contains less than 150mg per litre of sulphites.

 

Treat this as a regular champagne or sparkling chardonnay and pair with fish dishes, asparagus, salads or pizza. Refrigerate before drinking to fully appreciate all this no-alcohol chardonnay has to offer.

Thomson & Scott Noughty Alcohol-Free Sparkling Rosé

 

There's no better gifts for Christmas with zero alcohol than bottles of fizz that everyone can enjoy. For some reason, pink bubbles always seems a little more luxurious. So, why not become the guest of honour by bringing a bottle of Noughty alcohol-free sparkling rosé?

 

Dealcoholized to retain its unique flavour, this no alcohol rosé contains just 4 grams of sugar per 100 ml and 18 calories per glass. So not only will you escape without a hangover, you'll enjoy the same stunning rosé taste and avoid adding to your daily calorie intake.

 

The versatility of sparkling rosé means it can pair with pretty much anything. An ideal party gift if you're not sure what's on the menu! We suggest enjoying it with a light dessert. Think lemon sorbet or chocolate mousse.

Spirit gifts for Christmas with no alcohol

 

If you're buying a gift for someone who likes to be at the cutting edge of consumer trends, look no further than our newest additions to the VE Refinery range.

 

Pentire non-alcoholic botanical spirits are made by distilling plants from the Cornish headlands. Created in a similar way to gin, this delicious drink contains no alcohol or juniper so it boasts its own unique flavour. This Cornish delicacy was created with two things in mind, both of which are important to the Swiss way of life: healthy living and outdoor activities. Two varieties are available.

 

  • Pentire Adrift: Herbaceous, fresh and crisp with notes of citrus, sage, rock samphire and sea salt. Unlike alcoholic spirits, Pentire is actively good for you. Rich in vitamins C, E and K as well as flavonoids, carotenoids, iodine, antioxidants, fatty acids and omega 3, adrift is plant based, vegan and gluten free with no added sugar.
  • Pentire Seaward: The newest offering from this dynamic alcohol-free spirt brand, Pentire Seaward is replenishing and invigorating with zesty grapefruit topnotes. Its natural green tones come from the Pentire plant blend, and these are layered with a hint of natural berry from sea buckthorn and wild seaweed. Said to aid circulation, recovery and sleep, this elixir is plant based, gluten free and contains no added sugar.
