FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is meant by the term "Alcohol-free"?
Here we quote from "Club Soda" one of the more informed Low and No category experts
"The terminology used about alcohol-free drinks in the UK is inconsistent and badly needs to be reviewed. Descriptions of drinks as “alcohol-free”, “de-alcoholised”, “non-alcoholic”, and “low alcohol” have very little in common with what consumers see on the bottles and cans they buy and are the cause of significant confusion. Following the growing international consensus, we consider alcohol-free” or “no alcohol” to mean any drink at 0.5% ABV or under.
Definitions of “low alcohol” are even more ambiguous. In the absence of any agreed thresholds, we consider low alcohol beers and ciders to be under 3%, wines under 8%, and spirits with an ABV less than half of the usual alcoholic drink strength.
We would also like to note that food products and drinks in the soft drink category do not have to add ABV to their labels, despite products in this space often being 0.5% or above.
