Until recently there had been very limited options for those searching for vegan wines, ethically friendly alcoholic beverages and no-alcohol alternatives. So much so, that in most cases, consumers opt to stick with what they know, rather than continuing with the search.
Luckily times have changed; with more than half a million people participating in the Veganuary movement. But with an abundance of choice, how do you narrow down the perfect vegan-friendly alcohol for you.
If you are struggling with Veganuary or want to try out some alternatives, we have curated a list of our top six vegan alcoholic beverages. Ranging from complex floral champagnes to distinctive red wines, we have something for everyone to enjoy. So you can finish Veganuary with a bang.
The new ‘Green Label’ is the first wine from Lansons that is entirely made from organically farmed grapes certified by Eco-Cert. Highlighting environmentally friendly products with socially conscious practices. It holds a unique blend, made up of 50% pinot noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 20% chardonnay. Offering a complex nose of white peach, chalky soil tones and gentle floral tones. This is a crisp, full focused organic wine from the world-renowned Lanson.
A vegan light-bodied wine, packed with plenty of flavour. All grapes going into Felix are handpicked from vineyards undergoing organic conversion, tended with the priority of protecting natural biodiversity. Holding a slightly cool yet spicy nose on a palate of orchard fruit, a hint of green beans and flavourful citrus notes. With a bittersweet, slender finish. Great as an aperitif, paired with tofu, shellfish or roast chicken.
A distinctive red wine, the Louis Jadot Macon Rouge ticks all the boxes. Made in Burgundy, it holds fresh and savoury berry fruit flavours. Pairing perfectly with a light game, and rich meats, depending on your lifestyle. Unoaked and heavily fruited, this is a truly enjoyable Macon Rouge Wine. Formed primarily with Gamay Grapes. A vegan and vegetarian-friendly wine that everyone can enjoy.
If you are participating in Dry January or simply are looking for a non-alcoholic beverage, take a look at Clean Co’s Non-Alcoholic Agave. Clean T is a low-calorie Tequila alternative. Holding soft, fresh green agave and new oak aromas. Complemented perfectly with sweet melon and subtle fruit flavours. Gluten-free, hangover-free and suitable for vegans. Serve neat over ice, with tonics or in hangover-free margaritas.
Bloom London Dry Gin is carefully crafted with three key botanicals - chamomile, honeysuckle and pomelo. Each contributes to the unique drinking experience. The citrus notes from the pomelo bring freshness, the edible nectar of honeysuckle provides smoothness, and the chamomile creates gentle floral calmness. Best enjoyed with premium tonic water and garnished strawberries. A delicious gin that's sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan friendly.
