  • Hops, Grapes and Spirits Ltd catering for all tastes with zero alcohol and reduced alcohol spirits, and ready-mixed alcoholic cocktails

     

    11th May 2020

    We are catering for zero alcohol, reduced alcohol spirits and ready-mixed alcoholic cocktails with a new range of innovative drinks from Hops, Grapes and Spirits Ltd.

     

    Ginologist is a new zero-alcohol gin from South Africa, perfect for people who are drinking mindfully and removing alcohol from their lifestyle.

     

    Ginologist selects the most potent botanicals and extracts the maximum flavour. The distilling process ensures that there is no trace of alcohol. Once mixed with tonic, it’s hard to believe that this is an alcohol-free gin.

     

    There’s a growing trend for cocktail consumers to drink more lower-alcohol options. BOTICA Light meets this need, with a pink or orange London dry gin of only 14.5% ABV.

     

    Using these hand-crafted, small batch spirits from Barcelona, the bartender’s blend of 1/3 part of BOTICA Light and 2/3 parts of tonic creates a perfect gin and tonic with 4.5% alcohol.

     

    In these times when shopping for all cocktail ingredients can be inconvenient, people can guarantee the perfect negroni, manhattan or espresso martini by using Alembiq urban craft pre-mixed cocktails from Spain.

     

    Alembiq pre-mixed Negroni is a classic bitter-sweet gin-based cocktail based on tempranillo grape alcohol with the addition of a mix of botanicals, a craft sweet red vermouth and a bitter liqueur.

     

    The Alembiq Manhattan uses their triple-distilled single malt with grains from the Castille region of Spain, aged in oak barrels and mixed with aromatic bitters and sweet red vermouth to give a distinctive fruity, slightly bitter taste.

     

    The signature ingredient in the Alembiq Espresso Martini is their tempranillo grape alcohol-based vodka. It’s blended with 100% natural cold brew espresso and a craft coffee liqueur with vanilla and orange liqueurs to create a luxuriously rich cocktail.

     

    These are the latest in successful brand managements from Hops, Grapes and Spirits Ltd, an independent licensed UK importer and distributor.

     

    Hops, Grapes and Spirits Ltd specialise in rare, innovative, quality products with providence, and drinks that stand out. We provide artisan, craft drinks and brands from around the world, working closely with on-trade and off-trade partners, providing high quality, unique drinks.

     

    Previous brand management partnerships include bringing ISH Spirits to the Holland & Barrett zero-alcohol product range, the world’s first sparkling gin, Kaava, to independent retailers in the UK from Barcelona, and the oldest Italian gin, Bordega, to the UK high street.

     

    David Smith, Founder of Hops, Grapes and Spirits Ltd, said: “This market doesn’t stand still. It needs innovation and we’ve searched across the world for the best artisan products to meet these needs. It’s incredibly exciting to bring a new suite of zero alcohol, low alcohol and alcoholic spirits to the UK.”

  • Fiona Davies, Food Buyer at Holland & Barrett, speaks about the new ISH range.

     

    9th July 2019

    Fiona Davies, Food Buyer at Holland & Barrett, said: “I chose ISH because it fills a gap in the growing alcohol free market. Its flavour profile offers customers the perfect satisfying switch for gin and rum unlike any other alcohol free spirit on the market. The branding is smart in both look and name and most importantly, the range has extension potential. Innovation that delivers great quality and value to our customers are key in my range making decisions.”

  • HG&S Ltd bring innovative alcohol-free spirits from Denmark to Holland & Barrett

     

    8th July 2019

    ISH Spirits were announced as part of the new Holland & Barrett product range on 5 July 2019. ISH is a new drinks brand from Denmark, using natural ingredients to provide alcohol-free alternatives for gin and rum, called GinISH and RumISH.

     

    HG&S (Hops, Grapes and Spirits) Ltd is an independent licensed UK importer and distributor and this is the latest in our successful brand management. We find and partner with innovative brands from around the world to help realise their ambitions in the UK and Europe.

     

    The Danish entrepreneur, Morten Sørensen, created ISH spirits to provide an alcohol-free option for those who can’t or don’t always have the desire to drink alcohol, but crave the same familiar flavours.

     

    GinISH and RumISH satisfy the taste buds as spirits in their own right, and tasters confirm that they have the same flavour and sense of gin and rum and are perfect mixed into cocktails.

     

    Fiona Davies, Food Buyer at Holland & Barrett, said: “ISH alcohol-free spirits are an important part of our new product range. It’s been exciting to work with a relatively new and ambitious company like HG&S Ltd to open up access to innovative brands.”

     

    We focus on rare, innovative, quality products with providence. We work closely with brands from around the world, on-trade and off-trade partners, providing them with high-quality unique drinks.

     

    Our previous successful brand management projects brought the world’s first sparkling gin, Kaava, to independent retailers and hotels in the UK from Barcelona, and the oldest Italian gin, Bordiga, to the UK high street.

     

    David Smith, Founder of HG&S Ltd, said: “We are delighted to work with Holland & Barrett and to continue to offer retailers and consumers in the UK a broader choice of innovative drinks from around the world. I’m proud of our brand management, which is going from strength to strength.”
