The Nolo (no or low) alcohol lifestyle is the fastest growing trend in the UK, and if you fall in that category, there’s no need for you to feel left out this festive season. There are a LOT of options to choose from. Here are our top five must have Nolo drinks on your Christmas shopping list:
Fortnum’s Sparkling Teas
Fortnum’s new Sparkling Teas are perfect for festive celebrations and a must buy this Christmas. They’re fresh and crisp and contains zero alcohol.
There are two options, Original Sparkling Tea made with a certified organic blend of eight of rare brews. It has complex flavours and notes of tropical fruits on the nose, and a palate of lemongrass, water mint and Darjeeling, leading into drier tannins and a long-lasting hint of jasmine on the finish.
For rosé lovers, there’s Rosé Sparkling Tea – a wonderfully crisp and elegant rosé with a pale pink hue and a subtle sweetness. It opens with notes of tropical fruits, cranberry, hints of ginger, and deep layers of Darjeeling – complemented by light, fresh Japanese Sencha.
