Non-alcoholic drinks

Non-alcoholic drinks, or soft drinks as they are also known, provide hydration and quench the thirst without any of the effects of alcohol-based beverages, such as dehydration or driving impairment.  A wide variety and choice of non-alcoholic beverages are available with something to suit every taste and occasion including cordials, fruit drinks, juice drinks and carbonates.

Many social situations, cultures and religions eschew drinking alcohol -indeed, close to forty percent of the adult population is unable to drink alcohol at any given time for reasons ranging from pregnancy, medical conditions, and designated driving. 

Under EU law a non-alcoholic drink is classified as a drink containing less than 0.5% alcohol.
