Just hours before the SA government announced it was lifting the ban on booze sales, the ZA Confidential tasters took a sober look at alcohol-free booze.
We tasted two wines and a beer, and not a drop of alcohol passed our lips.
We bought them all in Woolworths (the bottles, not the tasters): the beer was the Devil’s Peak Hero. We also tasted the DE-ALC Chenin Blanc and the Lautus Savvy Red.
My fellow sufferers were Michael Olivier, Malcolm MacDonald, Duane Newman, Jeff Osborne, Chris Hart and Mike Schussler.
See what we thought by listening-in to our tasting, which started with a chat on the damage the lockdown has done to SA’s economy, businesses and – especially – the booze producers.
