Original ideas for non-alcoholic aperitifs

Gone are the days when the non-alcoholic aperitif was just a simple orange juice or a glass of soda! Today, there are a multitude of alternatives for having fun and refreshing yourself with a delicious non-alcoholic drink.

Soft drinks: a booming market

The French are more and more aware of their consumption. Attitudes are changing and alcohol is now consumed in a more reasoned and reasonable way. Its consumption is thus no longer a prerequisite for celebration, as it was a few years ago. The numbers prove it, increasing by +40% in 5 years, the non-alcoholic drinks segment is soaring. This is reflected in particular by a change in the habits of the French: 1 household in 4 testifies to consuming non-alcoholic beverages.

The choice has also developed enormously, it is possible to find many products such as non-alcoholic beer, non-alcoholic aperitifs, non-alcoholic cocktails, non-alcoholic wine and even non-alcoholic aniseed… There is literally something for everyone!

We want you to discover the many alcohol-free alternatives for a festive summer without excess!

Our favorite brands for a non-alcoholic aperitif!

VENEZZIO Spritz! You will find the taste of the famous Venitien Spritz cocktail, with the power of its bitter orange, all in a non-alcoholic version and made in Italy! As you have probably understood, it is not because we do not consume alcohol that it is impossible to enjoy a very fresh cocktail with a dolce vita trend!

Looking for an even more festive product, nothing better than alcohol-free bubbles! Take advantage of Artigny’s wide selection of non-alcoholic sparkling wines. These non-alcoholic wines can be drunk neat or in a cocktail, always chilled (but be careful without ice cubes, otherwise the bubbles will break). There is something for every taste: Grand Classic, Rosé, flavored or organic non-alcoholic wine or Prestige Cépage Chardonnay…
