Perfect mocktails for summer and ‘sober conscious’

At ‘The Mocktail Club’, summer is celebrated with refreshing flavors perfect for sunny weather! The Mocktail Club lets you enjoy an array of flavors without a drop of alcohol. Summer weather really is the perfect setting for their refreshing drinks, which stimulate the senses and put a smile on your face. The non-alcoholic sector is growing year after year, the industry is maturing and some trends are becoming apparent. These trends reflect a rising awareness of health, a pursuit of premium experiences and a surge in the popularity of low- and no-alcohol beverages. Another notable trend is the pursuit of premiumization within the non-alcoholic segment. Consumers are no longer satisfied with simple substitutions for alcoholic beverages. They seek unique and premium experiences in their choice of non-alcoholic options. This has led to a greater diversity of flavors, ingredients and product presentations within this segment.

There’s a flavor for every moment of the season at ‘The Mocktail Club’

‘The Mocktail Club’ sells 7 unique blends that takes you to a different part of the flavor palette each time. From apero to dessert, everything has been created for you and each delicious dish comes with a matching mocktail. With each mocktail we also offer a matching botanical to serve the mocktail.

The perfect serve of their mocktails is made by gently shaking the bottle and serving the mocktail over ice, with the recommended botanical as garnish.

Meet the sisters behind this club

The beating heart of ‘The Mocktail Club’ are the sisters Marie and Kaat Claessens. The story started with Marie. When she discovered at the age of eighteen that she had an intolerance to alcohol, Marie considered it a small tragedy at first. But soon she turned that into something positive. In 2015, she started a blog on which she shared recipes and inspiration for original mocktails. In 2017, she bottled her first bottle. Barely one year later, Marie was voted most promising entrepreneur of East Flanders. Since 2019, sister Kaat has been co-founding the business. Together they mix and shake with great passion, from the first to the last drop.
