Whether you’re doing Dry July, taking a week (or afternoon’s) sabbatical, or you’ve never drank a day in your life – we’re quite pleased to announce that we have something special for you!
Look, we here at Blackhearts are obviously huge advocates for all things flavoursome and fermented: wine, beer, spirits, cider, and all iterations and combinations of that bunch. At the root of it all, however, we’re simply supporters of tasty things – alcohol or no alcohol. We’ve long had a selection of non-alcoholic beers (alongside tasty soft drinks, chips, cheese, and other snacks, of course), but we’re always on the lookout for new and exciting options.
With this mission in mind, it’s with great pleasure that we’re now stocking a couple of tasty drops from NON. Brainchild of William Wade (chef and former owner of ‘Long Time No Sea’, as well time at Noma Australia’s drinks pairing station), NON’s mission is to expand the range of quality non-alcoholic offerings, with their ‘provocative interpretation of flavours without comparison or compromise’.
So far, they’ve released three beverages, lovingly crafted from high-quality ingredients, each with a distinct character. These are all incredibly versatile drinks – great on their own, over ice, as a spritz with citrus, or whichever way you find tastes the best to you!
1. Salted Raspberry & Chamomile, $30
Sparkling with red fruit, salty brine undercurrent, and a delicately floral nose. Reminiscent of a pet nat, and beautifully complex.
2. Caramelised Pear & Kombu, $30
Effervescent with caramelised pear, vanilla spice, kombu, and honeyed fruit. Beautifully round and refreshingly balanced.
3. Toasted Cinnamon & Yuzu, $30
Non-carbonated, with complex florals, Sri Lankan cinnamon, bitter-sweet balance of orange and yuzu, and a nice saline touch.
