Alcohol-free spirits not only look beautiful on your bar, but taste great, and some brands fall into the functional category, which include adaptogens & euphorics that make you feel amazing too.
Mix Your Favorite Mocktail with Non-Alcoholic Spirits
You may have noticed, but a shared mindset focused on “overall wellness” is changing the social standard to be more inclusive. This has led to a growing desire for elevated alcohol free spirits. Sophisticated non-alcoholic alternatives that are full of flavor, free of sugar or gluten, and most importantly; actually worth drinking.
At Sèchey, we carry a curated selection of non-alcoholic spirits that create an alternative sober bar that is perfectly unique to your taste, and those of your guests who might not drink alcohol.
What are Alcohol Free Spirits?
Alcohol-free alternatives are defined by a variety of companies that produce a range of zero proof alcohol spirits perfect for a social setting without the negative effects of alcohol the next day.
From classically distilled dealcoholized spirits to small batch botanical blends crafted by hand, there are a wide variety of options for every taste profile. For instance, you’ll find an emerging style of non-alcoholic beverages called euphorics, or functional beverages. They’re made with brain benefiting compounds called nootropics, adaptogens for stress relief, and botanics rich in antioxidants. These exist in a separate, yet similar class, to the popular hemp infused options.
Regardless of the method used, the goal remains the same across all these emerging brands - to develop a great tasting alcohol-free spirit that elevates the standard and shatters preconceived notions of “enjoying a drink.”

This means a more controlled experience as the active cannabinoids are absorbed more efficiently.
