Buy Ariel now – before it's too late


Ariel wines have announced a decision to discontinue some of their products.

We have on order the full current range of Ariel wines which are being transported from California as we write.

We are expecting this stock will be delivered to us in early August.

We are offering you the chance to place a pre-order now to ensure you have an ongoing supply of these best sellers.

This will be your last chance EVER to buy Ariel Rouge, Ariel Blanc and ArielZinfandel.

When it’s gone, it’s gone.

We have a limited amount of Ariel Rouge in stock now. Our final delivery of Rouge, as well as Blanc and Zinfandel, are due to arrive in August.

When you place your pre-order, you will guarantee your place in the queue to be among the first to receive your wines when they arrive in our warehouse.

Ariel Merlot and Brut were discontinued earlier this year.

In future, Ariel will produce only Chardonnay (also on pre-order now) and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Don’t delay. Place your order today.

The Alcohol-Free Shop supports community drama

We were delighted to help VIPs enjoy the red carpet treatment when the Alcohol-Free Shop was invited to support a new theatre production.

Residents in Stockport Greater Manchester formed a community theatre group to raise awareness of the impact of alcohol abuse.

The play was based on personal life stories and findings of local research into the effects of alcohol misuse on individuals, families and the wider community.

Volunteers worked for six months alongside The University of Manchester, as researchers and attracted Arts Council, local authority and health service funding to translate their findings into drama

The play “Pints and Pork Scratchings” premiered at Stockport College and was preceded by an alcohol-free drinks reception when guests enjoyed products from The Alcohol Free Shop.

Clausthaler wins top award!


Clausthaler Classic alcohol-free beer has been hailed the world’s best.

The superb quality of this German beer has earned Clausthaler the title of Best Alcohol-Free Beer in the World Beer Awards 2013!







This is the fifth time Clausthaler has snapped up first place having previously topped the bill in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Judges found the beer to have a ‘graceful’ lemon and grain aroma with a clean flavour, great body, very good carbonation and refreshing finish.

Go to Clausthaler …

We've made a great move!

We’ve had a very busy start to the new year transferring to a bigger, better warehouse.

Our business has expanded so well in 2012 that we have outgrown the facilities we took over three years ago and have had to go in search of pastures new.

The new warehouse does not have a purpose-built shop that customers can visit as the previous one did so we are having to suspend our tasting and counter sales for the moment.

But our internet and phone ordering service has been uninterrupted – thanks to our hard working team who completed the move in a weekend – and we will carry on providing our high standards of customer service.

We’re designing a new shop at the entrance to our new warehouse and we’re hoping to welcome back our visiting customers soon.

In the meantime, customers who prefer to buy over the counter rather than have them delivered, can order online and opt to collect their goods.

The new warehouse is just five minutes down Oldham Road towards Manchester city centre and it’s opposite the Holiday Inn Hotel so it’s easy to find. We’ll have new signage up soon.

The new address is Units 1 and 2, Manchester Industrial Park, Holt Street, Newton Heath, Manchester M40 5AX.

World's first gluten free 0.0% abv beer

Ambar Green 0.0% Gluten-Free
Ambar Green 0.0% Gluten-Free

We’ve often been asked for gluten-free alcohol-free beer and now we have found the answer to that call!

Ambar Green 0.0% is the world’s first gluten-free alcohol-free beer. But even if you’re not gluten intolerant – don’t dismiss this beer. You’ll be missing out on a treat! And with only 14 calories per 100ml, it’s very low-calorie too!

Ambar Green is brewed in Spain and is a refreshing beer with golden colour and a clean taste of bitter hops.

The beer is made from barley malt which has been treated to ensure a content of less than 6 ppm gluten. The process maintains the flavour and its very low gluten content makes it particularly suitable for coeliacs.

If you would like to replace a couple of bottles of your regular beer with Ambar Green to try it out, we’d be happy to oblige. Just add a request to the comments box on your order or phone us and ask.
