Our Hot Picks!
Wise Bartender is a growing family business launched in 2017, nestled in the heart of sunny, sunny Somerset! The aim is simple to make alcohol-free drinks as accessible as possible! Because of that we care about every purchase and every order, be warned your order may cause a little dance! We always love to hear from our customers, let us know how your doing and if we could do anything better :)
All of our beers, ales, ciders, wines and spirits have been tested (and yes some didn't make the grade) and are available as single bottles with no minimum order. Our drinks are also clearly labelled with the benefits they hold, such as being vegan friendly, gluten free, isotonic or low in sugar. We encourage you to try as many drinks as you can initially and then come back and order in larger amounts for the best savings.
Back in 2017 we were the first alcohol-free estore to offer drinks by the single bottle, before that you had to buy in multi-packs...crazy I know! Since then we have continued to innovate in this exciting sector, attending a number of events, in 2019 we met half a million people chucking out 10,000s of samples! Our mission to make these drinks ore accessible carries on and at the end of 2019 we launched WiseBarTrader.co.uk the first and only online alcohol-free trade website!
What about 2020? Well wait and see but we have lots of new drinks on the way and the next round of innovations to ensure these drinks are easier and easier for you to get hold of!

What does alcohol free mean?
Within the UK food labelling laws 'alcohol free' or 'non-alcoholic' means containing up to 0.05% alcohol. Drinks with alcohol between 0.05% and 0.5%are known as 'dealcoholised'. However, a number of our drinks are imported from Europe and are labelled as 'alcohol free' when they contain up to 0.5%. This is because European law states 'alcohol free' can be used on drinks containing no more than 0.5% alcohol.
Drinks containing no more than 0.5% alcohol fall outside of the Licensing Act. This means that a license to sale is not required and the drink is not age restricted.
Finally, can you get drunk off of these drinks? Official advice says that in excess of 6 units is a drinking binge. To reach this threshold you would have to drink 24 of the 500ml bottles of 0.5% drink in a short space of time. As your liver will be processing the alcohol quicker than you can drink this amount we are confident when saying that, no you can't get drunk!
