Distillation & Botanicals

A delicious, distilled Non-Alcoholic spirit we hear you ask?
That’s right. Not everyone drinks, and whatever your reasons are, that doesn’t mean you should settle for unexciting, belittling renditions of non-alcoholic fruit punches luminous mocktails. Not to mention soft drinks. You deserve a delicious, sophisticated alternative that is made through a bespoke distillation process and painstakingly amassed from some of Cape Town’s finest indigenous flora.
We give you Abstinence: a great grown-up, non-alcoholic option for those that don’t feel like drinking.

Distillation Process 

The 8 botanicals are infused in alcohol for a duration of 24 hours under vacuum. Water is added and the product is distilled at an absolute pressure of 65 mbar resulting in a boiling temperature of 37 deg C to remove all of the alcohol. At no stage does the mixture exceed this temperature thereby leaving the natural flavours of the botanicals unaltered. The final product is a true “non-alcoholic distilled spirit”.
