Mooze is a unique and delicious 12% Alt.Gin, distilled in small copper still batches. Our Master Distiller only uses 200 litre stills, to be able to precisely remove the heads and tails (first bit and last bit that gives you a hangover) that we don’t want in our bottles.
The water used is filtered by reverse osmosis (RO) to an exceptionally pure standard, over three times purer than Evian water.
Mooze is made by redistilling our base alcohol with these 6 botanicals: Juniper, Coriander, Orange, Clementine Zest, Cucumber and Macadamia Nut, but without one overpowering the other.
There are no added sugars, sweeteners.
There are no added sugars or sweeteners in our lower calorie spirit drink.
A 25ml measure of Mooze is 18 calories.
Yes, Macadamia Nuts.
But did you know that most gins contain nuts?
As it is not a legal requirement to add a list of ingredients to an alcoholic drink and we are choosing to always be transparent and still state everything.
We have added the nuts to achieve the ‘alcohol mouth feel’, when drinking Mooze, although our distiller has assured us that “the molecules in the nuts, are too heavy to travel over the column”.
Here is an interesting read on gins with nuts.
We really tried our best not to include any preservatives, but felt the downsides of not adding a small amount of potassium sorbate were far worse then the downside of the small amount we have added.
We wanted our drink to last for a long time without this affecting the flavour.
No it is an Alt.Gin. The European classification of gin is that it must contain 37.5% or above alcohol and contain juniper.
Mooze is 12% and contains juniper but it is made by the same process as a traditional Gin.
Made and bottled at a well known distillers, local to us in Great Yeldham, Essex in the United Kingdom.
We have chosen to keep everything local for our carbon footprint and our boxes are 100% recyclable, so don’t expect a glamorous box, but we wanted our product to be kind to the planet as well as your body.
Please don’t forget to put your glass and cardboard packaging back into the recycling process.
A regular glass of a 25ml shot of Mooze and 50ml of slimline tonic, contains just 18 calories, this is less calories than in a cup of celery.
You would have to drink 11x Mooze and slimline tonics to equal a glass of red wine or a pint of beer.
In the UK, the alcohol limit for drivers is 80mg of alcohol. To put this more clearly, this allows a man of average height to drink as many as 4 units of alcohol (equivalent to 2 pints of normal strength beer) and an average women 3 units (equivalent to a large glass of average strength wine).
A 25ml measure of Mooze contains 0.3 units. So for example, 4 glasses of this would equate to 1.2 units, still half of the recommended levels for women before driving (3 units).
Please be aware that we do not encourage Drinking and Driving. There is no fool-proof way of drinking and staying under the drink drive limit. The amount of alcohol you would need to drink to be considered over the driving limit varies from person to person. You must know your limits.
Let’s compare a glass of 25ml Mooze & Tonic which is 0.3 units:
A regular (37.5%) Gin & Tonic, for example, is 0.9 units, so 3 times more.
A large glass of White Wine is 3.3 units.
A large glass of Red Wine is 3.2 units.
A glass of Prosecco is 1.5 units.
A pint of Beer is 3 units.
We recommend keeping Mooze in the fridge, once opened. Like any alcoholic drink, it is best stored away from light and heat, as this disperses the alcohol in the drink. Do not store in the freezer.
We recommend you use a mixer for example a high quality tonic water. For more ideas, take a look at our Mooze Cocktails page.
We would like to refer you to NHS guidelines:
NICE antenatal care guidance (CG62, published June 2010 on NHS website) gives the current recommendations regarding alcohol in pregnancy.
Pregnant women and women planning a pregnancy should be advised to avoid drinking alcohol in the first three months of pregnancy because it may be associated with an increased risk of miscarriage.
If women choose to drink alcohol during pregnancy they should be advised to drink no more than 1 to 2 UK units once or twice a week (1 unit being equivalent to half a pint of ordinary strength lager or beer, or one shot [25 ml] of spirits. One small [125 ml] glass of wine is equal to 1.5 UK units). One glass of Mooze & Tonic equates to 0.3 UK units.
Although there is uncertainty regarding a safe level of alcohol consumption in pregnancy, at this low level there is no evidence of harm to the unborn baby.
Women should be informed that getting drunk or binge drinking during pregnancy (defined as more than 5 standard drinks or 7.5 UK units on a single occasion) may be harmful to the unborn baby.
Anything you eat or drink while you’re breastfeeding can find its way into your breast milk, and that includes alcohol.
An occasional drink is unlikely to harm your breastfed baby.
But never share a bed or sofa with your baby if you have drunk any alcohol. Doing this has a strong association with sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
