Lyre’s non-alcoholic spirits have been impossibly crafted to capture the essence of their alcoholic counterparts. Whether you are looking for a Gin, Malt or even Absinthe! Lyre’s just don’t mimic, they have their own distinction as a premium, non-alcoholic beverage option. Their use is endless and you can really truly create some magical non-alc concoctions: such as Fegroni; Foulvardier, Fol Fashioned, Fanhattan, Fartini*…

To Taste: Anise and aromatic to taste. Fresh. Distinct flavors of verbena, anise, fine herbs with a touch of sweetness to give it balance and length. No examples of hallucinogenic symptoms.
