Ceder’s Non-Alcoholic Beverage

Ceder’s offers up a gin alternative for those looking to abstain from alcohol.

The husband-and-wife team, Craig Hutchinson and Maria Sehlstrom, married their homelands in the creation of their alt-gin brand Ceder’s. While on a visit to Craig’s homeland, South Africa, the couple found inspiration in the indigenous natural botanicals of the Cederberg mountains. Believing they could distill a non-alcoholic gin using rare cape botanicals, they returned to Maria’s home of Sweden to work on its development. Each botanical and ingredient are individually distilled or macerated to extract its unique flavor profile. The process uses many of the same distillation techniques and ingredients as gin, such as juniper berries, but it is a new innovation to create a distilled non-alcoholic spirit. It has 0% sugar and 0% calories and is full of flavour. It is designed to be mixed with your favourite cocktail. Using South African ingredients and Swedish waters, they launched Ceder’s in 2018 – a juniper-led line of exceptional and refreshing gin alternatives.
