The Temperance Spirit Company

If you’re avoiding alcohol, swigging sugary drinks is often the last thing you want to do, and there are only so many glasses of fresh orange you can stomach.

Fear not, help is at hand in the form of the Temperance Spirit Company from Skipton and their Teetotal G’n’T, which claims to be as close as you can get to the taste of a real gin and tonic… without the gin.

Brendan Duckworth, Ian Jowett and Ian Ackroyd formed The Temperance Spirit Company in 2015. It was former research chemist and doctor of chemistry Ian who was tasked with developing the recipe for Teetotal G’n’T using only natural, high quality ingredients. He spent many months refining the taste.

Eventually he came up with the right mix of botanicals to replicate the taste of gin to everyone’s satisfaction while keeping the sugar content and calorie count down to just 52kcal per drink. Sceptics were quickly quietened when bottles cropped up in some of the best bars in the country, and now for the perfect serve you can take a chilled bottle of G’n’T, then add to ice in a glass, garnish with a slice of lemon, lime or cucumber, and enjoy!
