6 of the best non alcoholic gins we’ve tried

Published by Finn Hayden

Of all the spirits that we consume in the UK, gin seems to have emerged as our favourite to drink, with recent polls suggesting gin has overtaken whisky and vodka in popularity. And to be honest, it's not hard to understand why gin has become so popular - it's an incredibly versatile spirit which goes with just about any mixer, and is also delicious to enjoy on its own.

However, the one downside of gin for people who want to enjoy it casually is the alcohol content. Luckily though, if you're wanting to enjoy the taste of gin without the alcohol then you've actually got lots of great options. We thought it would be useful to round up the best non alcoholic gin that you can buy in the UK, based on our experiences and third-party reviews. Let's get into it:

CleanCo Clean G

CleanCo is quickly becoming one of the most popular non alcoholic drinks brands in the UK, and with products like this, we're not surprised by that at all. The Clean G product from Clean Co is supposed to act as an alcohol free alternative to gin, and we definitely think this product fits that description. Made using real juniper along with a host of other botanicals, this product really tastes like gin and goes perfectly with mixers such as tonic and lemonade. On top of this, it contains no added sugar and no sweeteners. We noticed that this product is highly rated on a few of the supermarket websites, with a 4.3/5 rating on the Tesco website and a 3.8/5 rating on the Sainsburys website. Learn more and buy it here -

Kopparberg alcohol free strawberry & lime gin & lemonade

Most people will be familiar with the cider produced by the Kopparberg brand, but you might not know that this brand also makes gin and non alcoholic gin. We weren't sure what to expect from the non alcoholic Kopparberg gin, but much like the cider from the brand, it had a lovely sweetness and was very fruity. It comes premixed with lemonade in cans, and we feel that the taste of the lemonade really compliments the strawberry and lime flavours of the non alcoholic gin. Learn more and buy it here -

Strykk Not G*N

Strykk is a brand which actually produces a number of non alcoholic spirits, including a great alcohol free rum that we included in a recent guide. But we think the 'Not G*n' from the Strykk range is probably the best spirit that the brand produces. Made using a blend of blend of juniper, coriander, sage, and basil, this non alcoholic gin has wonderful botanical flavours and works perfectly with a sprig of rosemary and a good tonic water. It's made from 100% natural ingredients and contains absolutely no added sugar or artificial flavors. If you look at the Strykk Trustpilot and search for reviews which mention the Not G*N product, you'll see lots of 5 star reviews. Learn more and buy the product here -

Sipsmith FreeGlider

Sipsmith is a very popular gin brand, and the FreeGlider non alcoholic gin that the brand has produced oozes the same quality and class as the rest of the range from Sipsmith. With notes of eucalyptus on the nose and citrus on the palate, it's a product which has as much flavour as any alcoholic gin you'll try. The customer ratings for this product on the Sipsmith website currently sit at 4.6/5, which is pretty near perfect. If you're looking for a really classy non alcoholic gin to enjoy with a premium tonic water (such as one of these), then this is a great option. Learn more and buy it here -

Gordon's 0.0%

Gordons is one of the biggest gin brands in the UK and probably needs no introduction, but not many people realise that Gordons also produces non alcoholic versions of its gin, and that these versions are actually pretty excellent in terms of taste. The only reason we haven't included this gin higher in the list is because it's made using sweeteners, which is a real shame. Learn more and buy it here -

Tanqueray 0.0%

If you'd prefer a non alcoholic gin with citrus notes, then this Tanqueray 0.0% is an excellent choice. Made with natural botanical flavourings, this product tastes very similar to the normal Tanqueray and definitely does a great job at providing an alternative to alcoholic gin. It's also interesting to note that this product currently has a very good rating on Amazon, with a 4.3/5 rating from more than 2000 reviews. Learn more and buy it here -
