Brand Spotlight: Pentire
Pentire are serving up incredible alcohol-free drinks, made using some unique ingredients sourced along the North Cornish coast.
Over the past 6 months I’ve discovered some amazing non-alcoholic drinks brands, and Pentire has to be one of my favourites. Not only do they make some delicious drinks, but they’re also giving back and thinking about sustainability at every point of their journey.
I first discovered Pentire when I was doing some research for my recent blog post about the best alcohol free drinks, and I was blown away by their ethos. They are channelling their love of nature and the outdoors into making an amazing product, whilst also giving back a percentage of their sales into charities and organisations that support the oceans and environment.
Pentire are based in North Cornwall, and use a lot of the ingredients that grow along the coastline to make their drinks. The ingredients they use really sets them apart from other alcohol-free spirit brands, and this comes across in the quality and flavour of the drinks as well.
I’m not sure if I’ll be alcohol-free forever, but when I feel a bit like I’m missing out on having a drink, having options like Pentire are such a good substitute that my desire for something alcoholic soon goes away. The flavour of their Seaward certainly makes it feel like a luxurious gin & tonic, and being hangover free the next day is always a great feeling.
More and more people seem to be cutting back on drinking or going completely alcohol-free, and if you’re looking for a real alternative to something like gin, Pentire should be your first stop!

Their use of unique Ingredients
Pentire source all their ingredients as locally as possible, and being based in Port Isaac in Cornwall, they use products that grow along the surrounding headlands. For example rock samphire and sage in their Adrift spirit, and sea rosemary and woodruff in their Seaward spirit.
Their focus on sustainability
Pentire have thought about sustainability throughout their whole process, from sourcing ingredients as locally as possible, to using plastic free and recyclable packaging, and even offsetting the carbon on all their deliveries!
This is my favourite of the Pentire spirits range! This has a fresh and zesty grapefruit flavour, and is also made with sea rosemary, woodruff, sea buckthorn and wild seaweed.
Pentire recommends serving this with a light tonic and a wedge of fresh grapefruit.
This is the Pentire’s original 0% spirit, and they describe this as having a coastal, herbaceous and fresh taste. It is made using botanical ingredients including rock samphire and sage, and Cornish sea salt.
Serve this over ice with Indian tonic, a wedge of lemon and a sprig of rosemary.
This is a blend of Pentire’s locally grown coastal ingredients including sea rosemary and oakwood, with bitter blood orange. The rich amber colour of this spirit is amazing!
Serve with a light tonic or soda and a wedge of orange.
Unlike Pentire’s other drinks, this is an alcohol free pre-mixed cocktail that is ready to drink. I ordered a bottle of this to serve with a Mexican meal I was cooking and it was super tasty.
This cocktail is made using Pentire’s signature coastal botanicals alongside lime, agave, seasalt and Mexican chilli. To serve, simply pour over ice and add a wedge of lime.
