Freixenet releases non-alcoholic sparkling wine range

Spain’s Freixenet has launched a 0% alcohol range of sparkling wines, tapping into the growing market for low- and no-alcohol beverages.

Available in both White (70cl and 20cl) and Rosé (70cl) variants, the white is made from Moscato, while the rosé is a blend of Moscato and Tempranillo.

Both are produced using a low temperature distillation system to preserve the natural aromas of the grapes, and are described as a substitute for the “often much sweeter alternatives” in the non-alcoholic sparkling wine category.

Demand for non-alcoholic beverages has been growing, with larger swathes of the population now choosing to drink less, and a younger generation increasingly shunning alcohol altogether.

Most recently, non-alcoholic spirit company Seedlip announced it was setting up a sister business producing no ABV apéritifs made with grapes.

Æcorn Aperitifs, which will launch in early 2019, are made with English grown grapes, and aromatised with herbs, roots and bitter botanicals. The drink, which will come in three separate flavours and sold in 50cl bottles, is designed to be enjoyed with food.

Freixenet 0% Alcohol Free Sparkling Wine will be available to buy in Tesco at £5 (70cl) and £1.50 (20cl), with other retailers to be announced.

    Several non-alcohol beverages, originally wines that have undergone special de-alcoholizing processes have been produced in Spain for several years. In my book, CAVA, Spain’s
    Effervescent Treasure, I included a chapter specifically dedicated to these beverages. One of the more widely used de-alcoholizing processes was developed by Carl Jung in 1908.
    Among the other Spanish Sparkling beverages are Emino 0’0 (Bodegas EMINA), Nubiloa Sin Alcohol (CANALS i NUBILOA), éLLiVO ZeroZero (éiVO), Vidris Brut (Bodegas BONJORNE),
    consumption by muslims.
    One important fact must be remembered, no de-alcoholied beverages made from wine can be termed as wines after having been de-alcoholized, be they still or sparkling.

    I like this brand of Cava, but in this market (Taiwan) they is only the Rose version and the Negro (black bottle) of this line, however, I have had some produced by the company, under a different name…I have seen a gold bottle in Japan (I think tis Blan d blanc), but I have yet to have the opportunity to taste it, hopefully next time I go out there.
