I am in Mexico right now and I just spiked my limonada with the Free Spirits Co. “tequila” and am feeling fierce and completely sober. I love everything about this brand!
My go-to when I want to make the nonalcoholic version of a fancy craft tequila cocktail, Free Spirits The Spirit of Tequila is solid and reliable no matter the context. Agave is the main flavor, slightly acidic with a big dose of green bell pepper and the slightest touch of sweetness, with a substantial but not overwhelming burn.
I love this one. Best NA Tequila on the market. One of the few NA spirits I can sip straight.
One of the few no-ABV spirits to nail that burn in the throat, Free Spirits’ approximation of reposado tequila is surprisingly successful and a serious delight to sip — though it’s been specifically designed to mix well in a margarita.

Absolute blown away by the Free Spirits tequila! The aroma and flavors are eerily close to a great reposado, and the overall mouthfeel and experience is just really solid. Having made many AF margaritas, this one was the best.

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.
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.
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.
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 and natural Aminos like Taurine that your body naturally produces to aid in all kinds of good stuff, including helping your overall mood.
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.
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.
Since environments vary, we encourage you to store your Free Spirits in the refrigerator for longest shelf life.
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.

With a wonderful jalapeño margarita mix, ice and salt on the rim tastes like the real thing!
- VJVictoria J.Verified Buyer4 days agoRated 5 starsColor me surprised
This year I made a decision to dial back on my alcohol consumption for health reasons. I am a big fan of tequila, the high end stuff. I didn't have high hopes after tasting other types of "spirits" but was pleasantly surprised when I received this. Definitely not for sipping but great for making a spicy margarita, my fave! This is agave forward, somewhat vegatal with a lovely spicy kick. I will be repurchasing for sure!!
- MMarissa2 weeks agoRated 5 starsNice night cap
I really love the taste. I’m doing dry January (and honestly considering going AF in general) and this substitute has really been great for a nightly routine! I love that I don’t wake up with a headache or regrets yet I still get to enjoy my tequila drink at home. It’s got a nice burn feeling and I can feel the B vitamins lightening the mood. I feel way better and honestly being sober and enjoying a skinny margarita is the best. I’ll definitely be buying more.

This is not tequila it does not taste like tequila but it does mix very well with other alcohols and mixers
- GGiGiGoVerified Buyer3 weeks agoRated 5 starsObsessed!
We are usually gin and tonic drinkers, but this has become our favorite free spirit product. We usually make margs with it, using real orange liqueur. For dry January, however, we made our own "free" sec with simple syrup, oj, and orange zest. We like jalapeño margaritas and use Tajin on the rim rather than salt. It's so nice to have a healthy alternative for our evening drink ritual.

It blends so well with my expensive Tequila, don't notice the dilution.
