Wise Bartender is an alcohol-free online store and pop-up bar (back in the day before Covid-19). Started in September 2017, they specialise in drinks that are below 0.5% ABV. They have possibly the biggest online collection, over 90 different drink varieties including beers, ciders, wines, spirits, craft sodas and even Prosecco and a GnT!
Sourced from across Europe including some from the UK. They specialise in presenting the qualities of each drink, highlighting drinks that are gluten free, vegan friendly, isotonic and ones that are enriched with vitamins.
Tom the founder and main man is very knowledgeable about everything from the ciders to the wines and the botanicals.
I am a big fan of replacing alcohol with some great ‘grown up’ drinks, for when you want a decent drink at home, and particularly now over the festive season when you just don’t want to be drinking constantly and feel the effects of too much alcohol then you can have your beer and drive and remember the great time you had without a dreaded hangover.
Here’s what Tom the founder says on his website…
‘Tom and Wise Bartender ethos blends two of the most important things in life health and family. We are very much a family business with the initial idea of an alcohol-free e-store was very much nurtured by my wife Bia and dad Kim.
I’m happy to say that I like a beer, yes, an alcoholic beer! However, there are times when I want the experience of a beer without the alcohol. You know the occasions, the night before you plan to go for an early morning run, ride, swim, you’re the designated driver or it’s a school night! I want a convenient, easy, reliable way to purchase alcohol free drinks past the token couple in my local supermarket. Also, I don’t want to have to buy a case of 12 or 24 without having tried the drink. So Wise Bartender is all about flexibility, all our drinks are available as single bottles with no minimum order.
