Australia’s love affair with alcohol is long and filled with good times (along with plenty of regret), but as we enter a new age of healthier living the demand for non-alcoholic beverages in public settings is certainly on the rise.
Earlier this year the first fully alcohol free bar opened in Melbourne, and while Perth is probably a little ways off there yet, the supply is definitely beginning to catch up with demand.
And this July hospitality group Australian Venue Co are getting in on the action, launching a Zero Proof Drinks List on July 1 at their eight Perth venues, to go with 57 nationwide.
Which is great news for folks partaking in this year’s Dry July while still wanting to socialise with pals, or those who just need a bit of a break after a libatious first half of 2021.
The list will provide customers with genuine zero- and low-alcohol alternatives to alcoholic counterparts like Espresso Martinos, Nogronis, Amalfi Spritz’s and a Dark & Spicy to name a few.
“At AVC, we understand what our customers want and are proud to be the first hospitality group to roll-out a zero proof drinks list at scale… With our new Zero Proof cocktail list and low alcohol range, there’s no reason to feel left out on a night out,” says Australian Venue Co Chief Marketing Officer Kylie Moncur.
