Saoirse, Rum Alternative, 0%

Non alcoholic drinks are expanding at a rapid rate.

It’s always good to see an Irish Distillery – Old Carrick Mill Distillery in this case – get in on the act. Especially when offered at an attractive price in Aldi too!

Saoirse means freedom in Irish – yet the nose offered up a pleasant sweet fruity fragrance.

A tad watery on the palate – similar to other non-alcoholic spirits – that lacked body & depth.

Sadly the finish faded rather quickly too. Leaving little taste or flavour behind.

Perhaps these kind of drinks are more suited for cocktails – which aren’t my thing.

A pleasant nose, an attractive bottle & affordable price still don’t compensate for a rather weak drinking experience – but then I’m not really the target audience.

A worthy entrant to the non-alcoholic category.
