POLKA, the new wave of South Australian non-alcoholic beverages including wine, spirits, and aperitifs, is deliciously perfect for any occasion.
Made with love in South Australia’s wine region, POLKA’s beverage range is gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and low in calories, making them the ideal drink of choice for everyone on any occasion.
Since 2021, POLKA has expanded into a vast range of de-alcoholic drinks including Sparkling cuvée with wild harvested native Lilly Pilly, Sparkling Rose made from the native botanical Davidson Plum, Blood Orange Italian Aperitif and a refreshing Pink Grapefruit Botanical Spirit.
The husband-wife duo behind Polka, Ben and Emma Mellows, share a love for new product innovation and a desire to offer more to the health-conscious consumer.
With a passion for exceptional taste and quality ingredients, they wanted to create a more elevated brand in the market with a range of drinks that would stand out by offering more complex and nuanced flavours, worthy of any occasion.
To achieve this, the pair teamed up with high-profile South Australian winemakers and brewers to create a range of non-alcoholic beverages that have all the characteristics of their full-strength counterparts.
“Like any food or beverage product, a key driver of the de-alc uptake is taste. By first making wine or spirits in traditional methods, then extracting the alcohol, we can give people products that they will truly enjoy on every occasion,” says Ben Mellows, director of Polka.
“With over 10 years in the food and nutritional manufacturing industry, we are dedicated to sourcing and using the best ingredients to create our delicious drink offering which includes the highest quality South Australian grapes and native botanicals that present an innovative, sophisticated, and delicious beverage.”
Built around principles of quality and sustainability, Polka is dedicated to sourcing the best ingredients to create their delicious drinks, whilst ensuring they are also minimising their environmental impact. Their eco-friendly packaging and support from local manufacturers set them aside from the rest of the non-alcoholic market.
POLKA is available to purchase online at polkadrops.com.au or through various bottle shops and premium grocery stores as well as on-premise venues across Australia.
