An award winning alcohol-free spirt Mahala Botanical created in South Africa, has announced its launch in the UK. Here is what Mahala Botanical has to say “Mahala is a non-alcoholic, triple distilled spirit. Mahala is made in South Africa, using nine hand-sourced botanicals that are infused under vacuum to extract the flavour. “Mahala” is the Zulu word for “free” … Mahala Botanical is free from sugar, alcohol, colourants and artificial flavours.” (1)
The spirit was awarded the trophy for best No/low Alcoholic spirit at the 2020 Michelangelo International Wine & Spirit award. The distillery employs disadvantaged employees, supports local workers and contributes a percentage of sales in South Africa to The Botanical Society of South Africa, which champions biodiversity conservation to protect the extraordinary plant diversity and ecosystems.
Schoeman the founder has this to say, “Mahala was born out of a desire to create a premium, healthy and distinctive alcohol-free spirit in a booming category that offers little choice for consumers looking for quality sugar-free and alcohol-free alternatives.” (2)
Mahala is available online at mahalabotanical.com and through a carefully selected range of retailers, including SPIRIT and Master of Malt. The brand is also being introduced through a number of UK-wide tasting events and trade shows.
