Food & Drink Business : Lilly Pilly Pink 0.0%

Gin producer Manly Spirits Co. Distillery has released its first non-alcoholic ‘spirit’, Lilly Pilly Pink 0.0%, an alternative to their award-winning Lilly Pilly Pink Gin, without the alcohol and sugar, but with all the flavour.

Lilly Pilly Pink 0.0% retains the floral and fruity flavours of the original gin, using the same botanical mix with flavours of the native lilly pilly, blood orange, native limes and a juniper backbone.

The pink hue and berry overtones is the result of an 18-hour infusion of fresh raspberries.

Manly Spirits master distiller and co-founder David Whittaker, said it had taken years to bring the product to life.

“It’s been interesting for us to go on this journey of creating non-alcoholic products – it’s like searching for the holy grail; the challenge we faced was to create a similar tasting experience to an alcoholic beverage, a rounded mouthfeel and tasting journey with a lingering complex finish.

“Most people assume that making a non-alc spirit would be easier than making gin but in reality, it takes a lot of hard work, way more than we expected. We were very conscious not to simply create a sweet fruit cordial with no resemblance to an alcoholic drink,” said Whittaker.

Manly Spirits Lilly Pilly Pink 0.0% is now available for sale in over 400 Vintage Cellars, First Choice and Liquorland stores nationally and from the Manly Spirits Co. Distillery in Brookvale NSW or online.
