WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT WILFRED'S BITTER SWEET NON-ALCOHOLIC APERITIF?
A quest for the perfect Spritz.
As we became increasingly frustrated by the uninspired, overly sweet and usually unhealthy non-alcoholic options available, both at home and when out, we decided something had to be done. And so started our quest to reinvent a drink for the new era of drinkers, a drink that captured all the complexity of the greats but without the alcohol. We unwittingly found ourselves reinventing the spritz…
It starts with innovation, and ends with great taste.
As an engineer and inventor with a passion for cocktails, our founder Chris Wilfred Hughes embarked on a journey of exploration and experimentation. Flavour, quality and complexity were of the utmost importance, and this mindset led Chris to over 18 months of experimentation and more than 100 unique recipes to get Wilfred’s just right for the perfect Spritz.
Nature in a bottle, made with Great British quality.
Inspired by his travels around the world, Chris sourced every botanical he could find, from rare Japanese hibiscus to the aromatic English rose. His journey eventually led him back home to the authentic flavours he associates most with London - freshly picked rosemary from his mother’s garden, and the bitter oranges in his father’s homemade marmalade.
Made in Britain with natural botanicals, 0% alcohol and only 21 calories per serving, Wilfred’s aperitif pairs impeccably with tonic over ice for a truly distinctive and irresistibly delicious Spritz.
It’s sunshine in a glass.

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?
