Salcombe Distillery 'New London Light (NLL) Alcohol-Free Spirit (0% ABV)
New London Light (NLL) 70cl is a critically acclaimed, bold and refreshing non-alcoholic spirit with an outstanding spectrum of flavour. With its delicious full body, complex layers and thirst-quenching zest, NLL is making waves in the low and no alcohol category as it looks to set a new standard in taste.
Named after an iconic lighthouse marking the entrance to the best deep-water harbour in Long Island Sound, New London Light was once a beacon for the crews of 19th century Salcombe Fruit Schooners trading cargoes of exotic fruits and spices with the new world of the Americas.
NLL is crafted by first distilling a combination of three botanicals: rich Macedonian juniper berries, zesty ginger and warm habanero capsicum, to create a full-bodied base spirit. The base liquid is carefully blended with 15 further hand-picked botanicals including orange, sage, cardamom, cascarilla bark and lemongrass; creating a complex and layered spectrum of flavour with thirst quenching hints of citrus orange and sage.
A blend of bright orange citrus, aromatic cardamom and herbaceous rosemary and sage on the nose.
An aromatic and warming balance of juniper, ginger and habanero capsicum on the palate with fragrant bitterness from sage and cascarilla bark.
The finish is long and smooth with sweet orange and star anise, lengthened with floral coriander and lemongrass.
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?

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.
