Vegan Alcoholic Drinks

Is my drink vegan?

Not many people know this one, but lots of the beers and wines out there that we all drink aren’t technically vegan at all. This is because of a fining agent used at the end of fermentation called isinglass – a gelatin made from dried fish bladders (yep – we’re serious, and it’s as gross as it sounds) - to filter out the yeast and residual haze.

It is flavourless and harmless, but chances are if you told people that’s what’s in their drink, they’d probably be more than a little confused (as we were when we found out!) However, ethically speaking, for those looking for an alcoholic vegan drink it can understandably leave a bad taste in the mouth, and is part of the reason why we created Long Shot.

It seemed weird to us that there weren’t many decent vegan alcoholic drinks out there in the UK. We’re not just another ‘vegan’ drink – we wanted to make sure we created a great-tasting drink that also happens to be suitable for vegans. So we did.

Our drinks are predominantly made from mineral water and fruit juices, which are of course both vegan (amazing what they can do these days right?) and are mixed with a neutral grain spirit – which is derived mainly from wheat and doesn’t undergo a filtration process.

All our Drinks are...

  • Suitable for Vegans

    Because we also watched 'that' Netflix documentary

    It turns out most of the beers and wines out there aren’t actually vegan-friendly at all (I know, it was news to us too!) So rather than just ticking the ‘vegan’ box, we wanted to make a great-tasting drink first, which also happens to be suitable for vegans. Check ingredients >

  • Gluten Free

    Because that’s cool, right?

    A rigorous distillation process for our grain alcohol helps to break down and remove the proteins that trigger any gluten intolerances and allergies. So if you’re simply trying to cut down, or have a more serious issue, you’ve nothing to worry about with our gluten-free hard seltzers. Check ingredients >

  • Keto Friendly

    Low carbs mean it’s perfect for washing down that avocado & egg salad!

    That’s right – it is possible to still enjoy a drink whilst on a keto-diet, you just might need to stay away from the beers. With only 2-2.5g of carbohydrate per can (all of which come from naturally occurring sugars in our fruit juices), Long Shot can bring that keto-friendly option to the drinks table.

  • Low Calories

    So you can have that second cheeseburger after all!

    But seriously, why waste all that hard work with the diet when enjoying a drink? We noticed that those couple of drinks can all start to add up and is partly why we created Long Shot – to bring that lighter alternative. And with roughly half the calories of your standard G&T, you can get more of the flavour, with less of the guilt. Check ingredients >

  • Low Sugar

    Basically the opposite of those sugary canned cocktails you see everywhere.

    We got frustrated by the lack of high-quality ‘lighter’ options out there and weren’t so keen on the teeth-rotting level of sugars we found in most ready-to-drink options we found. So the only sugar you’ll find in our drinks comes from naturally occurring sources in the fruit-juices we use.  Check ingredients >

  • 4% ABV

    The same kick as your standard journey juice, with less of the guilt

    We wanted the individual fruits we use to be the centre of our drinks – and we’re sometimes told it’s hard to taste the alcohol in them – but there’s nothing stopping you topping yours up with a splash of vodka for more of a hit if you fancy! Check ingredients >

Our Ethos

Some rules are meant to be broken. Not these ones!

  • Always big flavour!

    If something’s worth drinking, it should be damn tasty.

  • Always the real deal!

    Never anything artificial. The only thing that flavours our seltzers is real fruit. And plenty of it!

  • Always refreshing!

    The sparkling mineral water gives an uplifting boost to picnics, after-work drinks or post gym celebrations. Cheers!

  • Always naturally light!

    Natural, no-nonsense ingredients mean we always keep our seltzers under 100 calories.
