Hangover-Free Whisky? Healthy? Good for everyone?August 6, 2012 By: Nightclub and Bar
If you like the taste of whisky when socializing but don't want to risk impairment, take a look at the world's first alcohol-free, whisky-flavored drink ArKay. This golden substitute has the appearance, taste, and aroma of traditional whisky – but with 0 alcohol, 0 calories, 0 Sugar – and just like any shot, it is popular for drinking straight-up, on the rocks, with your favorite mixers, or blended in a cocktail.
"ArKay is produced with no alcohol, at all, in the first place," says VP of Sales, Josh Polky; in the Fort Lauderdale office of ArKay Beverages Inc.
ArKay's process has no maturation and no fermentation, so there is never any alcohol. It is also calorie-free, fat-free and sugar-free. Not only can you drink as much as you want and not get even slightly impaired, but men and women alike can drink as much as they want even if they are watching their weight. In addition, there is no hangover!
It took five years of beverage industry research, surveys, and tastings to create a genuine whisky-flavored alternative for mass consumption. To date, the response from the public has been incredible, Polky says, and the secret recipe for this whisky-replacement is in accordance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations.
The beverage is not a replacement to the real thing but is a promising answer for those who enjoy the taste of a drink, a shot, or a cocktail but can't do it due to personal responsibilities or medical reasons. Envision, for example, being able to enjoy several whisky-flavored drinks at a social gathering without the worry of driving home. Further envision the enjoyment without the calories, fat or sugar associated with other beverages.
"This beverage is not intended to be medicine," states Polky, "but is a healthy alternative substitute to liquor and may we mention again: Hangover free."
