No-abv pioneer Three Spirit will be bringing two new expressions to the on- and off-trade at the end of October. Livener and Nightcap will be joining Social Elixir, the first product from the company which launched in January 2019.

Described as ‘the world’s first plant-powered social spirit’, Three Spirit is a culmination of the work of some of the best bartenders, herbalists and plant scientists in the UK, namely Robin Honhold (ex-Dandelyan), Tristan Stephenson and Thomas Aske from Fluid Movement (Black Rock, Worship Street) and Professor Michael Heinrich, head of the centre for Pharmacognosy and Phytotherapy at UCL School of Pharmacy. All three have been involved in the creation of the two latest expressions.

The lowdown

Livener

Ingredients include: Guayusa, schisandra berries and energising plants

Tasting notes: Notes of red berries, background of heat and tannin from the guayusa and guava leaf

Best enjoyed in: Margarita, Daiquiri, Bellini

Nightcap

Ingredients include: Valerian, turmeric, ashwagandha, lemon balm and hops

Tasting notes:Notes of oak, citrus and freshly cut grass along with bitterness from Hüll Melon hops and lemon balm

Best enjoyed in: Old Fashioned, straight over ice

As with Social Elixir, the new spirits have been created using ingredients that co-founders Tatiana Mercer, Dash Lilley and Meeta Gournay believe recreate the positive effects of alcohol, with Livener’s berry and heat qualities making it a party starter, while Nightcap’s notes of oak and vanilla make it something more soothing.

The spirits are also designed to be used in drinks that adopt the concept of micro-dosing, be that with alcohol, CBD, caffeine and other stimulants. ‘For this new breed of Conscious Hedonists – people who love to go out, let their hair down and have fun but who still want to be on form the next day – we offer the dream,’ says Mercer. ‘Great flavour, new function and unique drinking experience.’  

The team are also looking to expand their market reach in 2020, with some specialist bars in New York already stocking the original product.

Available to the trade from late October, RRP £24.99/70cl, Enotria&Coe
