Following the highly successful release of Mockingbird Spirit, the alcohol-free alternative tequila, launched in August 2020, founder Fern McCoy is back with a new exciting product – just in time for the fast approaching, hazy summer days and drawn out light nights spent with friends and family.

With a willful ambition to create a ready-to-drink Mockingbird Spirit product, a drink more suited to the ‘every day’ rather than those special occasions, Mockingbird has created a non-alcoholic, Mexican-style Cerveza – something unique to the usual ready-to-drink summer mocktails currently on the shelves.

Celebrating the traditional taste of tequila, Mockingbird Spirit marries with beer in a way that other alcohol-free spirits cannot. A light and golden non-alcoholic beer with a touch of tequila taste and reminiscent of a refreshing Mexican Cerveza with those all familiar flavours, Esmeralda was born.

As with the original Mockingbird product, Esmeralda contains carefully selected, authentic Blue Weber Agave sourced directly from Mexico, with tasting notes of sweet vanilla, cinnamon and the perfect hint of habanero. Mockingbird Spirit also includes the hero ingredient Ashwagandha, an adaptogen that helps your body manage stress and anxiety. Prominent in the art of Ayurveda, this medicinal herb can diminish cortisol levels and boost your energy, leaving the consumer feeling productive and creative rather than bored or lethargic.

Fern tells us –  “Everything about the Mockingbird brand needs to be unique so a Mexican style Cerveza was the perfect addition to the growing portfolio. Keeping it authentic, functional, versatile, vegan & gluten-free was a must and also bringing something to market that hasn’t been done yet – the non-alcoholic, ready-to-drink category seemed to make perfect sense. The drink keeps it fresh, innovative and carves out a brand-new offering to the consumer and just in time for Summer 2021, ready to hit the beach or picnicking and sipping on a light, golden, refreshing alcohol-free beer”

Running alongside the release of Esmeralda is the new 70cl sized bottle of Mockingbird Spirit which also comes in 5cl and 50cl bottles. The whole range is available via the website
