Savyll Beverage Co are producers of alcohol-free premixed cocktails. They currently have a number of different options ranging from a Mojito and a Gin and Tonic through to a Moscow Mule. This time around I am reviewing the Savyll alcohol-free Bellini cocktail.
The classic Bellini cocktail was created by an Italian chap called Giuseppe Cipriani in 1948 who produced this fruity and refreshing drink by stirring two parts Prosecco with a one-part fresh peach pureé. Why is it called a Bellini? Well, its thought that the drinks sunset colouring reminded Cipriani of the paintings by the 15th-century Venetian artist Giovani Bellini.
Savyll has recreated this classic cocktail using all-natural, alcohol-free ingredients, perfect for a night out or summer’s day. What did I make of this non-alcoholic cocktail? Well, you’ll just need to read the review to find out.
Is alcohol-free Bellini any good?
First of all, I am not one who chooses a Bellini cocktail at a bar, I would normally go with a gin and tonic or whisky and coke. That said I have drunk one before so I can tell you that this version is a pretty authentic version of the alcoholic variety. The carbonation is great and refreshing and tastes like a slightly weak Prosecco. You can pick out the floral and peach flavours on the first sip enhancing the experience. All that said, it is a VERY sweet drink and too sweet for my taste buds. I enjoyed drinking one but would struggle to finish off another.
Aroma & Appearance
Once poured into a glass you get the aromas of a classic Bellini cocktail i.e the slightly bitter peachy smells. It doesn’t have the vibrancy of an alcoholic Bellini but still has a realistic light peach colour to it.
Well, this is certainly one of the healthiest Bellinis you’ll be drinking for a while. For starters, it has zero alcohol and is vegan-friendly and gluten-free with only 42 kcals per 100 ml. Frustratingly Savyll isn’t so prominent in supermarkets so you’ll need to purchase this from online retailers.
Buy Alcohol-Free Bellini
This isn’t the easiest cocktail to find on the high street so I suggest checking out the following specialist retailers.
When it comes to alcohol-free spirits, Masters Of Malt has a great selection on offer. Choose from premade cocktails as well as bottles of non-alcoholic spirits.
