Lower Alcohol Beer
Since the release of Adnams Sole Star in cask earlier this year, we've had many requests from customers asking us to bottle this lower abv beer. At 2.7% Sole Star benefits from a lower duty rate, yet is still high in flavour.
We've got a new addition to the range too - Adnams Ginger Beer. At 2.5%, it has a lovely citrus and ginger twist.
For an ever lower alcohol beer, try Bitburger Drive. This German beer is brewed in the same way as full strength Bitburger, but the alcohol is removed - at just 0.05% abv, it is almost alcohol free.
Lower Alcohol Wine
About ten years ago, the Adnams wine team began to receive comments from customers who'd noticed the alcohol levels were creeping higher and higher. It was not always clear whether the increasing alcoholic strength was the result of global warming, vineyard management practices or a general winemaking preference for big, strong wines.
Times are changing, however, and although the majority of quality winemakers still look to achieve balance, not all are focused on achieving high alcohol blockbusters.
Dr L Riesling:
"An ice-cold mouthful of not-dry riesling feels good in the same way it feels good to bite into a chilled chunk of melon, dripping with sweet juice. I say not-dry because the idea of sweetness seems to put people off, and this has 46.5g per litre of residual sugar. Think apple snow with mouth-tingling acidity that fences with the sweetness."
