NINE ELMS DRINKS was established in London in 2016 to provide a solution to the: ‘What do you drink if you’re eating but not drinking?’ problem.

Our first product – NINE ELMS No.18 Ruby Velven – is a new type of sophisticated non-alcoholic drink designed to complement good food. Made from an intricate blend of 4 types of dark berry and 20 different botanical extracts, it recently won the ‘Best No & Low Wine / Wine Alternative’ and ‘Best Food Match’ trophies at the Imbibe 2020 Awards. 

With herbaceous, warmly-spiced red & black fruit, gentle acidity, soft mouth-watering tannins, a decent long finish and complexity that reveals itself (like a wine) during a good meal, NINE ELMS No.18 complements a broad range of rich savoury foods, including antipasti, charcuterie, chargrilled vegetables, roasted meats and cheese. It is also vegan friendly, has no added sugar and is only 20 calories per glass!
