Following last year’s (2020) highly successful release of ‘Mockingbird Spirit’ (the alcohol-free tequila brand), Founder, Fern McCoy IS BACK with an exciting new product: a tequila-infused beer product, called ‘Esmeralda,’ – which will be available from May 1st (2021), onwards.
As part of this new launch, Fern partnered with beer expert, Thomas James from Fortitude non-alcoholic drinks. Combining creative minds and expertise, the pair had the vision to create a non-alcoholic, Mexican-style Cerveza, which is completely unique to the usual ‘ready-to-drink’ summer mocktails currently on the shelves.
Celebrating the traditional taste of tequila, Mockingbird Spirit marries with Fortitude’s beer in a way that other alcohol-free spirits cannot: a light and golden non-alcoholic beer, with a touch of tequila, – is reminiscent of a refreshing Mexican Cerveza with those all familiar flavours.
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 a hero ingredient: Ashwagandha, – an adaptogen that helps your body to manage stress and anxiety. Prominent in the art of Ayurveda, this medicinal herb can help to diminish your cortisol levels and boost your energy, leaving you feeling productive and creative, rather than bored or lethargic.
Fern explained: “Keeping it authentic, functional, versatile, vegan and gluten-free was a must, and bringing something to the market that hadn’t been done yet, – made the non-alcoholic, ready-to-drink category a match made in heaven for Mockingbird to launch into the market with ‘Esmeralda.”
She also said: “The drink keeps it fresh, innovative, and carves out a brand-new offering to the consumer: just in time for Summer 2021, for those ready to hit the beach, picnic, and of course, – sip on a light, golden, refreshing AF beer.”
Running alongside the release of Esmeralda, is a new, larger 70cl sized-bottle of Mockingbird Spirit, which has been available since April 16th, with the product currently coming in 5cl and 50cl bottles.
