The Duchess Drinks Studio in Cape Town has introduced a new addition to its range of premium alcohol-free drinks, The Duchess Spritz.
“The Duchess Spritz came about amidst a rapid rise in the demand for alcohol-free wines, but quite frankly, we could not find a great-tasting alcohol-free wine on the market. So, we decided to create one ourselves, but with a twist,” said Johannes Le Roux, founder of The Duchess.
“Experimenting with the natural sweetness of botanical and fruit extracts, we landed upon the perfect blend to match the wine’s acidity. The result is an incredibly refreshing wine spritzer.”
In 2016, The Duchess released the “world’s first” alcohol-free gin & tonic, targeting those who actively seek to drink less alcohol without compromising on taste and experience.
“Duchess Spritz is ‘La Dolce Vita’ in a bottle. From the taste, to the design, to the tone of voice, we want consumers to be transported to carefree moments of joy and vitality,” said creative director and co-founder, Inus Smuts
“In 2020, we can all do with a bit more of this and the time to offer something new, exciting and unique is perfect.”
Global marketing manager, Talita Calitz commented: “We have always viewed The Duchess Alcohol-Free Gin & Tonic as the embodiment of an elegant, sophisticated and classy female persona, but now it’s time for The Duchess to let her hair down.”
The spritz will be available in two flavours: Berry Rose and Elderflower White.
It will be available from Yuppiechef and SPAR stores in August 2020.
