NONA Drinks produce Nona June, a gin alternative. NONA is the Latin word for nine, as 9 botanicals make up the spirit. June refers to the juniper berry, the main ingredient of gin. NONA June gives you the choice to drink differently. This spirit inspires you to create classy cocktails. No compromises should be made in flavour, experience and atmosphere when you are looking for a non-alcoholic option.
On a mid-summer Friday night in 2017, Charlotte and some friends decided to have some drinks after work. The place was packed, a nice tune was playing in the background and the atmosphere was amazing. She was looking for a non-alcoholic drink, but the bar only offered a very limited selection. She picked one of the mocktails they were serving. Unfortunately, the drink was way too sweet and had no complexity whatsoever. She was disappointed I couldn’t find a non-alcoholic alternative for the cocktails she loved. Charlotte believes that you shouldn't have to compromise on flavour and experience when you don't want to drink. This is how the idea of creating a premium non-alcoholic spirit was born. Charlotte began experimenting with herbs and botanicals in her living room. She enlisted the help of chefs, bartenders and gin enthusiasts, in order to perfect the flavour profile. After testing and sampling for about a year, she came up with a sophisticated but balanced spirit. This is how NONA June came to be.
