Borrago is a delicious grown-up drink with no alcohol, sugar, fat or calories. It is full of natural botanical flavours and smells, built from the ground up to give a complex, dry and flavoursome non-alcoholic spirit. It is an awesome base for exciting and discerningly different non-alcoholic cocktails. The signature serve is to pour over ice, top up with a Double Dutch Indian tonic and garnish with lime and a sprig of mint.
Bottle Size is 500ml
Alcohol free spirits are made through the distillation of botanicals, up to 35! These are then mixed to create the flavour, many of which now go past just imitating a gin, vodka or vermouth taste but instead create a whole new flavour! Across Europe drinks below 0.5% ABV are classed as ‘alcohol free’. In the UK drinks that are between 0.05% and 0.5% ABV are classed as non-alcoholic.
Is this really sugar free?
Yes this sugar has zero sugar! Products with a higher sugar content cause a spike in insulin and we react by storing more carbs as fat. You may also notice that although lower in sugar there is some carbs, this is usually more complex forms of sugar such as starches and fibre and the body uses these for energy.
