FAQ

Will I be able to tell the difference between this and the "real thing"?

Sure, the same way that you know it's not really Tom Cruise jumping out of the helicopter into the burning building. But there you are, gripping the arm rest of your chair, enjoying the heck out of the action.

Do I drink it straight or mix it into a cocktail?

Use Free Spirits the way you'd use a traditional spirit. We're big believers that a great cocktail needs to have the warming burn and bite that is typically associated with alcohol. So each one of the Free Spirits are blended to balance flavor with bite. That said, if you drink it straight, like any spirit, it'll leave some teeth marks. But when mixed into your fav cocktail, we think it creates the perfect nibble for a slow-drinking cocktail.

Cool, cool, cool but how's it made?

Through a process called Distillate Reconstruction, each one of the Free Spirits is crafted by identifying that spirit's unique fingerprint (all of the raw materials, flavors and interactions that give a traditional spirit its unique flavor profile). Then we source those ingredients (like Blue Agave, White Oak and Juniper Berries) and distill them into natural flavors, extracts and botanicals. We then reconstruct that spirit, to form something much bigger than the sum of its parts. And, instead of a fermentation process that generates alcohol, we simply infuse the source liquid with nutrients like B Vitamins and energy to help enhance your mood, the social experience, and your spirit.

"mood enhancers"? Say more words.

Part of any great cocktail experience is the way it makes you FEEL. So we started the Company with the question, "what if a cocktail made you happier AND healthier?". So, instead of Alcohol, we infuse each of our products with vitamins B3 & B6 to aid in all kinds of good stuff, including helping your overall mood.

So, you guys are for an alcohol free lifestyle?

Nope - just one that involves more choice and balance. The truth is that we've gone through our ups and downs with alcohol. We love a great cocktail. We love going out with friends. And we love having a cocktail in hand that is this magical mix of crafted ingredients that come together, all for you in that moment. But what we have learned is that it's not always the alcohol that makes the moment and that there are times when alcohol is right and times where it's not. Free Spirits is for those who value choice without sacrificing the quality of their cocktail experience.

Gluten? Vegan? Humane? Cage free?

Yep. All our products are gluten-free and vegan. And, we don't test on animals because have you ever seen a pig with a cocktail? It's ridiculous. Oh, and we're not a fan of cages. Free Spirits helps you break free from anything that may be holding you back to be your best self.

How should I store it?

Once opened, use the same way you would a traditional spirit. Refrigerate for best results, but do not freeze. Best if poured within 3 months of opening.

What's the point of a non-alcoholic cocktail?

We love a good cocktail. We love the ceremony of making it - or having a professional thoughtfully make it for us. The weight of the glass, the cut of the ice, the slow-drinking bite and the richness of the ingredients as they mingle with one another to form totally new flavors. And, if you're anything like us, you've figured out that it's not always the alcohol you crave. It's the ceremony. The social interaction. And it's knowing that what's in your glass has been painstakingly crafted from sources around the world by passionate people, all for the moment you're in right now. You may also notice that we don't use the word "mocktail". It's no big deal but, for us, it conjures-up images of those overly sweet, syrupy, imposters, posing in a hurricane glass and wearing a whipped cream hat. Mocktails are missing something. They're "less than". Cocktails made with Free Spirits lift you up. They are "more than" your traditional cocktail.

    Excellent experience

    I took a chance ordering this Bourbon. I am impressed with the body and flavor profile. It is more pleasing than I expected. It works neat, rocks, and mixed. I will definitely be ordering another.

    Perfect substitute

    Really have enjoyed using Free Spirits. It helps me cut back on my alcohol consumption. So glad I found this and will continue as it’s helped me also lose weight.

    Closest to the real thing

    I don’t drink anymore but I used to love bourbon. This is just about the perfect NA replacement. Aside from the intoxicating effects, you would not be able to tell the difference between this and the real thing. This is further enhanced when mixed with a soda like coke.

    Love being able to drink as much as I desire without having to worry about the side effects from alcohol.

    Low calories, a shot of vitamin B, and excellent taste.

    Great alternative

    This is not bourbon. But, if you’re looking for an alternative to alcohol that is nice to sip and has that satisfying burn, this is great.

    I like the taste

    But I don't seem to keep it on my radar. For some reason It's not something I think about or look forward to.

    I have a glass of red every evening, replaced by The Spirit of Bourbon one time and it enjoyed it.

    I just don't go back to it. I will say, I am not a soft drink person. I drink water, coffee, red wine and bubbles for Sunday brunch. The Spirit... doesn't replace the wine or the bubbles. Not sure what to do with it.
