Whether you're sober curious, heading into your first booze-free Christmas, or have long been bored of the lacklustre nonalcoholic drinks on the market, there is a shiny new site that could be just what your tastebuds have been waiting for. Sippers is the one-stop shop for all drinks "low and no", and it's full of options that bring all the fun, with none of the hangover.
Founded by Talia Broederlow, the site officially launched in November and we are hereby suggesting you bookmark it for future reference. Why? Because Broederlow knows what she's talking about when it comes to alcohol-free goodness.
Broederlow came to the sober space after contracting Dengue fever, a viral infection spread by mosquitos, and was recommended by her doctor to take a year off booze. She soon recognised a gap in the low and no-alcohol market, with so many brands left gathering dust in bars or being difficult to find in supermarkets. And she wanted to push the message: alcohol-free does not mean fun-free.
Sippers is essentially ASOS for the mindful drinker, helping you to navigate through a huge array of wine, beer, spirits, ready-made cocktails, and mixers. Stocking a range of well-known brands like Gordon's and Guinness as well as independent labels such as Crossip and Gnista, it's got all you need for filling up your booze-free drinks cupboard.
There's also recipes so that you can get creative yourself (we're making the Christmas Virgin Pornstar Martini asap), and a blog that is updated with fun posts debunking myths and offering sound mindful drinking advice. So whether you're new to the sober space or have been long after ways to revamp your drinks choices, Sippers needs to be your new go-to.
