Best Gin & Tonic: Ritual Zero Proof Gin Alternative
Best for Cocktails: Free Spirits Spirit of Gin or Ceder's ClassicWith distinct citrusy notes backed up by bright juniper berries, these versatile gins are our go-tos for mixing up a wide range of cocktails, from a no- or low-alcohol Negroni to a French 75.
If You Love Hendricks: Ceder's Crisp
If you love Hendricks, this cucumber, chamomile and lemon zest-infused gin-alternative is for you. Softer and more subtle than other options, it's great with tonic and makes a delicious Southside riff.
If You Like Citrus: Abstinence Cape Citrus
Best for Something Completely Different: Ceder's Wild
Inspired by the native flora of South Africa, Ceder's Wild infuses rooibos tea, resinous juniper and pine along with spicy cloves for a truly unique gin alternative. We love it with ginger beer for a spicy Ginger Highball.
Best for Something "Gin-Adjacent": Bax Botanics Verbena & Sea Buckthorn
Love gin but looking for something new? Check out Bax Botanics' sophisticated, complex spirits. Verbena offers a zingy citrusy-floral experience while Sea Buckthorn brings resinous herbs and crushed berries to the mix. Both are great with tonic and can be substituted for gin in a range of cocktails.
