Amanda Thomson, Founder and CEO of Thomson & Scott loves sparkling wine and loves to know exactly what’s in her bottle, so she created a delicious, luxe, non-alcoholic sparkling wine that is also 100% organic and vegan certified. The market for zero alcohol drinks isn’t particularly exciting and Thomson & Scott are changing that!
The grapes used in Noughty are grown with minimal intervention in the harvesting and production process. No animal by-products such as crustaceans, egg or fish, are used in the filtering process meaning it’s also vegan friendly and suitable for those on a Halal diet. Thomson & Scott also avoid adding unnecessary sugar to the production process, so this is great if you are conscious of your sugar intake, with just 2.9g/100ml.
Bottles are 100% recyclable, as is the cork, cage and box.
Noughty Sparkling Wine
Noughty is produced with 100% organic Chardonnay grapes from the sandy and calcareous vineyards located in southern Spain, and the wine is de-alcoholised using an historically patented technique without any additional sugar or artificial aromas but retaining the rich flavour of beautifully crafted Chardonnay.
“It is, hands down, the best alcohol-free sparkling wine I have ever tasted, and one of the best alcohol-free wines I’ve tasted overall.”

With 3g of sugar per 100ml, it’s almost half the sugar content of other non-alcoholic wine. Traditionally made in stainless steel vats for de-alcoholisation by vacuum distillation with aroma recovery. The wine is then lightly carbonated and has an elegant pale colour with a crisp and ripe apple scent accompanied by a touch of sweetness.
Noughty is a great alternative to wine for aperitif and party nibbles, as well as with all manner of cuisine for those who choose not to drink alcohol.
