Nine Elms No.18 Bottling Note

A non-alcoholic tipple from London-based Nine Elms, No.18 Ruby Velven is the first in a series of releases from the brand specially designed to complement food. It takes the juices from four different varieties of berry and botanical infusions from 20 different flowers, herbs and spices. It's quite the cocktail of botanicals. The idea is to sip it neat alongside a good meal, though a dash of tonic wouldn't go amiss either.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Bright and vibrant, with a refreshing acidity, cranberry tartness, with other red berries in tow, and a hint of tannic black tea, and an earthy, leafy note.

Nine Elms No.18 Ruby Velven Reviews

Very good

A lot of my friends have stopped drinking and this makes a perfect gift, especially as it’s very lo-cal compared to a lot of other non-alc alternatives. I also love the beautiful bottle: I keep the old ones for putting olive oil in.

Excellent red wine replacement

I think I read in some of their publicity materials that the makers wanted people to see this as something distinct from non-alcoholic wine, and flavour-wise, fair enough, it IS different. All the same, though, the perfect niche for this is certainly as an accompaniment to food where red wine would otherwise be.

The makers have not only created a suitably complex flavour, but by also paying attention to body and mouthfeel, they've avoided the insipid, watery character that dealcoholised wine or n-a gin substitutes can have.

On its own terms, I don't think the flavour reaches the level of interestingness that the best non-alcoholic aperitifs achieve, so I'm not that keen on the idea of putting this in cocktails. But then, who wants to drink an aperitif with dinner?

Definitely agree with a previous reviewer that I look forward to offering this as an option at future dinners, and I hope the Nine Elms people have other good things coming up for us to try.

Best of the non-booze boozes!

I gave this to my partner as a birthday gift and it went down a storm - much more flavour and body than the usual booze substitutes. Tasted great with main (steak) and dessert (chocolate). Will be perfect for the drivers and non-drinkers as soon as we are having dinner parties again!

Great alcohol alternative

Nine Elms No.18 has become a firm favourite in our house since we decided to rein-in our booze consumption a bit. As advertised, it goes great with rich savoury dishes, so is a perfect accompaniment for Sunday roasts, bbqs and even takeaways. But we also love the Nine Elms Spritz (NE, tonic, ice and a slice of orange) - it makes a great non-alcoholic aperitif or just something to unwind with at the end of the day. Nine Elms also makes a great present or something to take to a get together with friends or family - always sparks an interesting conversation...
