CROSSIP: Non-Alcoholic Spirits Made With Botanical Ingredients
CROSSIP is a non-alcoholic spirits brand (that uses botanical ingredients): it was Founded in 2020 by the well-known cocktail expert, – Carl Anthony Brown.
Inspired by Carl’s love for cocktails, his passion for fitness, AND his passion for supporting mental health issues, Carl wanted to design a “better-tasting” alcohol-free drink.
Unapologetically bold in its branding, ethos, and flavour, – CROSSIP is unique in the market: rather than replicating the taste of alcohol-based spirits (such as gin or whisky), the drinks’ start-up boasts a mature mouthfeel, and a flavour profile, – which is typically associated with alcohol. Therefore, it can be used to create sophisticated cocktails, or even added to a mixer to create depth and texture.
Unlike other non-alcoholic alternatives, CROSSIP is created through a process of maceration, as opposed to distillation, meaning that it contains zero alcohol (unlike other brands, which may still contain a residual trace, due to the production process).
Social responsibility is also a huge part of CROSSIP’s business model: the brand donates 5% of it’s profits to a number of causes that affects modern society, ranging from mental health through to addiction. Their current charity partners include(s): Alcohol Change UK, Papyrus, CALM, and Centre Point UK.
The full CROSSIP product range includes: FRESH CITRUS, DANDY SMOKE, and PURE HIBISCUS.

“Launching CROSSIP marked a life-long ambition of mine to create a quality, great tasting non-alcoholic spirit that I could enjoy whilst socialising with friends and family in a healthy way. I had been perfecting the recipe for many years. It’s a privilege to see how it is being received and I’m so excited to develop and grow CROSSIP in the years ahead,” said Carl.
