Whether you’re taking part in Dry January, trying to cut down your alcohol intake after a heavy festive period or are indeed just curious to discover some delicious alcohol-free alternatives to gin, fear not! We’ve pulled together our top non-alcoholic gin alternatives for you to try this January.

The best part? These little babies are all part of our non-alcoholic tasting kits – meaning you can try them all with their perfectly paired mixers, in one perfectly packaged box!

Conker Spirit, Bowser Leaf.

Brought to you by Dorset’s Conker Spirit Distiller, Bowser LEAF is an exploration of the fresh, herbaceous foliage of plants, derived entirely from the spring water distillation of five honest botanicals.

A genuine alcohol-free alternative to your G&T. Bowser LEAF & tonic is crisp and bright, with a big botanical flavour and intriguing dryness punctuating every sip. Mint, Tarragon, Patchouli, Thyme and Basil come together to deliver a lively and complex alcohol-free drinking experience like no other. A fresh bouquet of savoury green flavour, spice and natural sweetness pops from the glass.

It’s total ‘New Year, New You’ friendly too – no calories, sugars or fats. Vegan and gluten-free. Most importantly, no alcohol whatsoever!

For the perfect serve, enjoy with Folkington’s Indian Tonic Water, loads of ice and a wedge of fresh lemon.


Warner’s 0% Juniper Double Dry

Warner’s 0% Juniper Double Dry is the perfect twin to a tonic: herby, aromatic & zesty, pairing spicy cinnamon and cardamom with fresh lemon verbena and lemon thyme.

With 0% ABV and 100% natural botanicals, their Juniper Double Dry is the perfect non-alcoholic alternative to their sustainably crafted farm-grown gins. Packed full of flavour, with 90% of the ingredients sourced directly from their farm: a taste of the countryside that brings people together. Folkington’s Earl Grey Tonic has notes of quinine, bergamot and black tea.

For the perfect serve, enjoy with London Essence Co Grapefruit & Rosemary Tonic. Garnish with rosemary and a wedge of grapefruit for the full non-alcoholic G&T experience!


Warner’s 0% Pink Berry

Warner’s motto for non-alcoholic beverages? “If you’re going to have a drink, make it a proper drink.”

We couldn’t agree more. Long gone are the days of having half a pint of warm squash as your alcohol-free alternative.

Warner’s 0% Pink Berry is a delicious non-alcoholic alternative to a fruity or pink gin: fragrant & tangy, combining raspberries and blackcurrant sage with a kick from chilli, ginger and Szechuan pepper. As with the Juniper Double Dry 0%, Warner’s Pink Berry is packed full of flavour, with 90% of the ingredients sourced directly from their farm. Double Dutch Double Lemon is full of natural lemon flavour with a bitter tone and a hint of lime. A great option for those who really don’t like a tonic!

Perfect serve: Enjoy a double slug with Double Dutch Double Lemon Tonic Water and loads of ice.


Spice 94, Seedlip.

For those who love warm spicier flavours, there’s Seedlip Spice 94. A sophisticated blend of Allspice berries & Cardamom with a bright, zesty notes from Lemon & Grapefruit peel, balanced by a long bitter finish from the highest quality Oak & Cascarilla barks.

Seedlip is on a mission to change the way the world drinks with the highest quality non-alcoholic options. They have three unique & complex blends – Spice 94, Garden 108 & Grove 42. All can be simply served with tonic or mixed to create sophisticated non-alcoholic cocktails.

Perfect serve: Enjoy a double slug with Double Dutch Cranberry and Ginger Tonic Water and loads of ice.

After 4 years of being together we never thought that we would one day be in business together. Who knew where a simple text message could lead….

It all started with a conversation with Nicola at one of The Little Gin and Rum Company’s events in Leeds. Amy sent a message to Ian saying “Do you fancy buying a gin and rum company?” and the wheels were set in motion.



“As a sales professional travelling the UK and the world, I have made travelling and alcohol my thing.  With over 20 years experience supplying the hospitality industry with software and e-learning, I can’t wait to start sharing Queen Cleo Spirits with the industry I love.  You’ll usually find me with my favourite Queen Cleo Rum with ginger ale.”


“Where Ian loves sales, I love marketing and as a digital marketing trainer and professional public speaker, I always have a lot to say.  When Nicola and Emma started virtual events in lockdown, I jumped at the opportunity to talk about gin and rum and nearly 200 events later, I still love it.  Old Tom is my favourite tipple and I’ll even drink it neat with just a cube of ice and a squeeze of lime.”


Nicola and Emma have created a gin and rum legacy and we are honoured to take it into the future.   

We can’t wait to share our plans with you and we promise to make Queen Cleo proud. 

You know our favourite Queen Cleo drinks and we’d love to know yours.  Share them with us on Instagram #littleginandrumco.
