Having a non-alcoholic concoction is becoming more or less the norm as consumers continue to establish preferences in a more understanding culture. The concept of mocktails has been part of the scene, but Mocktails™ Uniquely Crafted is taking this trend to the next level. Recently, the international award-winning alcohol-free cocktails brand added to its medal cabinet a Double Gold and three Silvers at the prestigious 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
“We at Mocktails Uniquely Crafted take an uncompromising small-batch mixology approach to create our adult drink solutions using the finest ethically and sustainably sourced non-GMO ingredients in the world to deliver on flavor, quality, and the versatility customers are asking for. We have redefined what a ‘mocktail’ can and should be for consumers around the world,” said Bill Gamelli, Chief Executive Officer. “Clearly, the market is demanding better quality experiences, and everyone from the public, to the Hospitality industry, to spirits experts, can taste the difference. Our awards at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition are a confirmation from the two years of awards we received in London, and a further testament to the hard work of our Head Mixologist, Ezra Star, and our entire Mocktails team.”
Earning top Double Gold honors is the company’s Karma Sucra Mockapolitan. Following close behind are the La Vida Loca Mockarita, Scottish Lemonade Mockscow Mule, and Red Sevilla Sansgria, all earning Silver in the Non-Alcoholic Cocktails category.
According to the release, there were only 18 medals awarded in the category, with Mocktails taking home four, including one of only two brands to take home the top honors.
Launched in the U.K. in 2018 by former investment bank executive Bill Gamelli, Mocktails produces a range of premium alcohol-free cocktails developed using proprietary innovations by Gamelli and Head Mixologist, and industry Hall of Famer, Ezra Star.
Founded in 2000, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition is one of the oldest in North America and allegedly the largest competition of its kind in the world.
