Inspired by a growing movement in the UK towards adult tasting non-alcoholic spirits, Alastair set out to create his own distillation that reflected the natural beauty and ingredients of his new homeland, Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Utilising his design skills, having run one of London’s largest branding agencies and Carolyn’s background in innovation working on some of the world’s major alcohol brands, together they set sail to create a new type of spirit.
He began experimenting with seaweed sourced from the local beaches. First distilling batches in his kitchen, then experimenting on different stills and in distilleries, until after two years he struck on a unique process that allowed him to capture the essence of the fresh sea air and local herbs.
And so Seadrift was born, an adult tasting, non-alcoholic spirit.
