I’m Charlotte, passionate about nature and product innovation. As a little girl, I enjoyed making my own drinks from the herbs I found in the charming fields of a nature reserve close to Ghent. Growing older, my love for nature and interest in food technology has led me to finish my academic studies as a bio-science engineer in 2017.
On a mid-summer Friday night during an afterwork drink with friends, I was looking for a non-alcoholic alternative for my favourite cocktails. The bartender served me a drink much too sweet for my liking. From that moment I started experimenting with herbs and botanicals to create NONA June.
I didn't stop experimenting, meanwhile I also developed NONA Spritz and NONA Ginger.
“My living room soon became my laboratory. Suddenly the room was filled with test samples and labels… all for the purpose of creating the perfect recipe for a non-alcoholic spirit which reminds of gin.”
Guided by topchefs & sommeliers
I sought feedback from several top chefs and sommeliers to perfect the recipe of NONA June, NONA Spritz & NONA Ginger.
NONA June combines nine herbs in a balanced flavour profile with fresh citrus flavours followed by a spicy touch.
NONA Spritz is a sophisticated blend of 27 herbs with fresh citrus notes and a slightly bitter finish.
NONA Ginger combines 12 herbs in a balanced palette of flavours with fresh citrus flavours and a spicy finish.
These three spirits are the result of a complex distillation process.
distilled from nature
Our premium non-alcoholic spirits are produced using a highly intensive and innovative steam distillation process. With no alcohol and barely any sugar present as a flavour enhancer, it is less easy to find the perfect balance between different flavours. That is why NONA June, NONA Spritz & NONA Ginger combine as many as 9, 27 & 12 herbs respectively in one spirit.
The natural ingredients, sophistication, balance and complexity in NONA's palette of flavours makes these premium non-alcoholic spirits the perfect choice for any mocktail enthusiast. Discover them below!
