Three Spirit alcohol-free drinks, Livener, Social Elixir and Nightcap

BIOHACKING: drinks with active botanicals.

Unlike the usual alcohol-free drinks you may already know, Three Spirit have taken a completely different approach to drinking. Rather than choosing between alcohol or alcohol-free, they opened the door to a new, third way of drinking - using natural botanicals, with functional properties to have an effect on your mind and body. The plant scientists at Three Spirits created three unique drinks designed to start your night with an energy boost, make you tipsy and even relax you before bed, all by using carefully chosen, active ingredients.

This is why their range is loved by biohackers - people who are experimenting with their bodies to boost their cognitive and physical abilities. Biohacking is a very broad term and can cover everything from tracking your sleep to much larger experiments with your body, but the goal is the same - improving the physiological state through experimentation.

The alcohol-free drinks made by Three Spirits compliments this completely. Wherever you are interested in improving your sleep or lifting more at the gym, each drink contains a number of natural, active ingredients that have an effect on your body without a trace of alcohol.

Take a closer look at their three, unique flavours and their fascinating ingredients:
