The Business

We were tired of sugary soft drinks and rubbish low-alcohol options, and we knew others were too - so we decided to do something about it. That’s when we developed Clean G, using traditional methods to create something with the character, quality and complexity of a proper grown-up drink.

General product

We make drinks in two different volumes – 1.2% ABV, which is classed as low alcohol, and 0.5% ABV, which is considered alcohol-free. Whilst there’s still a tiny amount of alcohol present in our alcohol-free range, any drinks containing up to 0.5% ABV are considered alcohol-free almost everywhere in the world.

Yes. We launched pre-mixed cans of CleanGin & Tonic and CleanRum & Cola in 2020, but in March 2021 we proudly launched our first ever alcohol-free spirit, CleanVodka.

You’ll find the range over on our Shop page, and there’s more on the way too, so watch this space.

We’ve created the best tasting range of low alcohol spirits on the market. We’ve had to distil 50% more of our key ingredients to get the taste impact we need. This is both expensive and laborious, but we believe the flavour of our spirits show it’s worth all the hard work. There are of course cheaper alternatives out there, but we want to use the best techniques and botanicals to create the best liquids, without compromise.

No, at the moment we only sell our CleanCo spirits in a 70cl bottle. We plan to expand our range in the near future though and might look to bring out different sized bottle then too.

No.

There’s some trace alcohol in our drinks, but not enough to get you drunk, in normal consumption.

Since we launched in November 2019, we’ve worked hard to bring you clean versions of a whole range of spirits - starting with gin, then rum, limited edition flavoured gins, pre-mixed drinks, and more recently, vodka. We’ll keep expanding, because we know people want more – so watch this space or get in touch if there’s anything in particular you think we’re missing from the range.

Our spirits are best served as a double shot (50ml) with your mixer of choice, or as part of your favourite clean cocktail. Take your pick from the delicious array of recipes we’ve created.

Alternatively, if you’re all about convenience, choose from our two pre-mixed recipes - CleanGin & Tonic, and CleanRum & Cola.

Please don’t freeze our drinks. Do keep them in the fridge to keep them fresh after opening though, if you wish.

Clean G

No. For a drink to be classed as a gin, European law states that it must contain 37.5% alcohol and have a predominant flavour of juniper. Our belief is that we’re opening up a new category, which allows people to enjoy properly distilled and expertly created drinks without the alcohol. We have the predominant juniper flavour but only a fraction of the alcohol.

We spent much of 2020 perfecting our original Clean G recipe, and as a result we now offer a punchier, more juniper-heavy version, that’s even more reminiscent of full-strength gin. The new and improved recipe has a cloudy finish due to the unique blend of juniper berries we use, and it’s a characteristic that can be seen in other premium gin brands too.

Suitability

All of our drinks contain some alcohol (albeit a small amount). Some contain 1.2% vol, and others 0.5%. If you’re looking to completely avoid alcohol for dependency reasons, or because you’re concerned about possible relapse, CleanCo drinks might not be for you. Before you make the decision to give our drinks a try, we’d always recommend asking the advice of someone professional who’s supported you on your journey.

We sell our drinks in two different alcohol volumes - low-alcohol spirits at 1.2% vol, and alcohol-free spirits and pre-mixed cans at 0.5% vol.

To add a bit more perspective, you’ll find less alcohol in our drinks than in a freshly baked bread roll, or in some soy sauce. Our alcohol-free range contains even less alcohol still, but it’s all about what makes you comfortable. We’ve always had fans who are pregnant or breastfeeding, but it’s a topic that often divides the crowds.

If you’re wanting to avoid alcohol altogether, then our drinks may not be for you, but if you’re seeking a second opinion then we’d always recommend asking your health visitor or doctor.

Most of our fans drink our products and drive legally – but alcohol affects everyone differently, so ultimately, it’s a decision you’d have to make yourself.
