ABOUT VE REFINERY
Why did you create VE Refinery?
On a sober curious quest to find a flavoursome, alcohol free, adult experience our founder, Victoria was left feeling uninspired by the lack of sophisticated options, so she decided to do something about it! VE Refinery was established to bring the finest of alcohol-free, to the Swiss table, with zero compromise on taste or style. Our thoughtfully crafted, adult, alcohol-free selection tastes good and does good. VE Refinery is not an anti-alcohol movement. We're here to change attitudes towards socialising and celebration by offering elegant alcohol free alternative with zero compromise on taste, and therefore establish a new equilibrium. Our carefully selected non-alcoholic beverages are best savoured slowly.
Will VE Refinery be offering other alcohol free products?
Yes indeed! In addition to expanding our alcohol free NOUGHTY range with a still NOUGHTY ROUGE, ROSÉ and BLANC in the coming months, we'll be introducing a range of other non-alcoholic beverages, all with the same brand values and promise. Sign up to our newsletter to find out when our new bottles drop (not literally!)
Does VE Refinery deliver outside of Switzerland?
Currently VE Refinery is serving the Swiss market exclusively. We do not deliver outside of Switzerland & Liechtenstein.
