As F&B consumers move towards increasingly health-conscious lifestyle choices, Giffard equips bartenders with high-quality alcohol-free liqueurs to boost their non-alcoholic menus.

Maison Giffard has been in the liqueurs and syrups game since 1885, producing some of the most exceptional flavours in a bartender’s arsenal for over a century. Having lasted this long not simply by chance but by a good intuition for what’s needed in the market, Giffard has now come out with its alcohol-free range to help bartenders extend their creativity in an increasingly low-alcoholic world.

“We wanted to answer the need for non-alcoholic, sophisticated cocktails,” says Emilie Giffard, the brand strategy and innovative projects director for the French family-owned business. The new portfolio, which offers four non-alcoholic flavours—Elderflower, Grapefruit, Ginger, and Pineapple—was developed using the same plant ingredients as Giffard’s liqueurs; however, when it came to the macerating process, vinegar was used instead of alcohol.

“The acidity of the vinegar is a way to preserve, but we also use pasteurisation, and it’s thanks to this process that we can also guarantee quality,” explains Giffard. “I think it’s the only non-alcoholic product on the market like this, as it has a long life with no refrigeration needed.”
