Try our delicious new juices

You already love our Rochester Gingers and Mulled Berry Punch – and if the forecast this weekend is anything to go by, you might want to put a couple of these in your basket!

Our juices section has just been extended to include a fantastic Rochester Dry Elderflower Presse that hits the spot better than any of those syrupy varieties you’ve tried.

You’ll love the tart and tangy Blood Orange and Mandarin Presse, Cranberry and Raspberry Presse, Lemonade Presse, and Raspberry Lemonade Presse.

And when the arctic winds hit us, there’s the new Rochester Organic Root Ginger to ward off the chill and the traditional Rochester Rum and Raisin to sip beside the fire.

Drinks to savour from dawn to dusk

You already love the award-winning potent Rochester Ginger, the spicy Jamaican Dark Ginger and the festive Mulled Berry Punch.

Now you can try a host of new drinks from the unrivalled Rochester stable.

You can enjoy the best yet Organic Root Ginger that’s blended with organic lemon juice and natural lime oil to create the height of delight or the classic Rochester Rum and Raisin.

You’ll also love the new sparkling drinks from the Rochester Presse including the Premium Dry Elderflower you’ve been longing for, the tantalisingly tart Premium Cranberry and Raspberry, a botanical blend Premium Root Ginger and the juicy, fruity Premium Lemonade and Premium Blood Orange and Mandarin.

These non-alcoholic drinks use only the best natural ingredients, are mainly gluten free and great for vegans.

The Hero of Zero!

We have our loyal customers to thank after we landed the overall winners trophy as The People’s Choice in the national Zero Alcohol Awards.

Actor Larry Lamb, famous for his role as villain Archie Mitchell in Eastenders, presented us with the trophy at an awards ceremony on Thursday at London’s Barbican.

The awards, sponsored by Britvic, are organised by the alcohol education charity Alcohol Concern which is behind Dry January.

Judges – including industry experts and journalists – were impressed by the testimonies submitted by those who regularly use our services and those who discovered us during Dry January.

Some of your touching stories were read out by the soap star who added his own experience of the negative effects of alcohol.

Stories such as these can be an inspiration to others, whether you’re avoiding alcohol due to medical conditions, to pursue a healthier lifestyle, to protect your unborn child, or to overcome dependency on booze.

If you have a story that you’d like to share, we’d love to hear from you.

It’s Alcohol-Free Week 2016!

Today we celebrate the beginning of our 10th annual Alcohol-Free Week which runs from 10 – 16 February.

We started Alcohol-Free Week in 2007 to encourage people to reduce their drinking and avoid alcohol at least two days a week.

Since then interest has grown every year and we’ve been pleased to see major charities follow our lead with Dry January initiatives in recent years.

Instead of a punishing 31-day thirst, Alcohol-Free Week aims to help people make healthier choices for life and still enjoy the benefits of wine and beer.

De-alcoholised wine has all the heart-health benefits or ordinary wine and alcohol-free beer has been found to significantly reduce cholesterol. They’re also up to 70% less fattening than alcoholic equivalents. 

We’ve stocked up on all your favourite wines and beers so you can drink to your hearts content.

Thanks for your vote

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been nominated for two national awards!

A panel of industry experts has short-listed The Alcohol-Free Shop for the Best Independent Retailer title in the Zero Alcohol Awards.

Votes from our valued customers have also put us in the running for The People’s Choice prize in the awards organised by Alcohol Concern, the charity behind Dry January, and sponsored by Britvic.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony at London’s Barbican on Thursday 25 February.

We’ve been touched by some of the moving testimonials from customers old and new who’ve spoken of the positive impact our service has made to their lives.

Whatever the final decision of the awards judges, we’re proud to have made a difference and thank you for your support.

Super fizz from Carl Jung

You already love the beautiful Carl Jung Sparking white wine.

Now this renowned winery has produced a fantastic new Blanc de Blancs bubbly.

Blanc de Blancs is a sparkling wine made exclusively from the Chardonnay grape – unlike standard sparkling wines which are a blend of different grapes.

We now have this stunning wine available at the great-value price of £5.99.

Drink to good health!

The truth is out: alcohol is bad for your health.

The UK’s Chief Medical Officer has announced today that there is no safe level of alcohol consumption.

Those who do continue to drink alcohol, despite the warnings, are being advised to have three alcohol-free days a week and drink no more than 14 units a week.

This year we celebrate 10 years since we launched The Alcohol-Free Shop to a hostile reception from the alcohol industry and ridicule in parts of the media.

We hope customers old and new will join us in raising a glass to our continued success and a happy healthy New Year.

And, as always, we thank you for all your custom and support!

Cheers!
