You don’t need to tell us how amazing it is to switch up the drinks and go no and low, so the team have pulled together their top five reasons to go undrunk.
1. They’re just so good! For every alcoholic drink that people enjoy, there are so many alternatives and they taste amazing. The experience you get from stocking up a traditional drinks cabinet…it doesn’t just need to be limited to collecting alcoholic spirits.
And it’s so exciting to share that concept; to change the way we think about drinks, to look forward to interacting with them, and maybe most importantly, create an occasion. Imagine if the designated driver at a gathering wasn’t just handed a lime and soda, or cup of tea – but instead could select from a range of beautifully packaged and delicious low or no spirits and mixers, in the way someone might choose their favourite whiskey. We’ve missed this as a society so far, and it’s what Undrunk is all about.
2. A community to engage with - people talk about wine and other drinks in a way that creates a real feeling of community, and belonging – wine clubs, gin subscriptions etc. There’s a real comradery, and an exclusivity to feeling like part of the club. But that shouldn’t just be limited to alcohol. You’ll be able to share your experiences with other Undrunk members, see what has been their favourite box, if they’ve added a twist, and maybe what meal they’ve selected to accompany it.
We’ve learned that there are so many people who want to communicate with others that have chosen, for so many reasons, to stop or reduce their drinking. We’ll be sharing these stories soon! So, watch this space.
There are so, so many benefits for your health when you go no and low and we could write a whole series of blogs about them but we will save that for another day... From the obvious physical health benefits, the mental wellbeing that limiting alcohol intake can have, to the empty calories – there aren’t really any downfalls to choosing low abv versions of your favourite tipple. Looking after yourself is definitely an important consideration and why we wanted to create an alternative that competes.
4. Money, money, money
The average UK household spends £918 per year on alcohol. That’s just over £75 a month – a lot of money, and many will spend significantly more. Imagine what else you could do with nearly £1,000. That would pay for the Mac used to write this blog!
Spending £35 a month, or as often as you like (and don’t forget your £10 first order discount!), on your Undrunk box feels like a treat, but one that’s significantly cheaper than alcohol.
5. Beer fear
This is so big for many of us – we all have a story of waking up the morning after a big night and dread slowly descends upon us. It’s the most horrendous feeling. What did I do? Did I make a fool of myself? Did I upset anyone? I don’t remember going to bed!! There are so many people that have hugely decreased their alcohol intake for this reason – it just isn’t worth the fear.
None of these points are intended to say drinking alcohol is wrong and the root of all evil, far from it, there’s much to be said for balance. Some of the Undrunk team still imbibe on a weekend. However, it’s just useful to understand why people opt for this lifestyle, and feel so good as a result.
Undrunk aims to provide the best ingredients, personally selected by us, to provide more choice and allow you to buy yourself a well-deserved treat that you can look forward to receiving. And the discovery element just adds to the excitement…
We hope you love our drinks as much as we do. Cheers!
