January can be dry It’s just getting started, but the new non-alcoholic bottle shop in Minneapolis embraces the cool, curious movement all year round.
News promotion: Honeycomb salon owner Erin Flavin recently opened Marigold in Kingfield after giving up alcohol more than two years ago. This retailer specializes in non-alcoholic (NA) liqueurs, wines and spirits for anyone interested in reducing or eliminating their alcohol intake.
Important reasons: Despite the cool curiosity movement and the growing popularity of NA cocktails, they are often also sold in places that sell alcohol, such as liquor stores and bars.
- Marigold’s is a boutique-like space that is comfortable, relaxed, and alcohol-free.
What to expect: The bright and cheery store sells NA versions of nearly every liquor store staple, including spirits like tequila, wine, cocktail mixes, and beer.
- Prices vary, but are mostly comparable to what you’d pay for a mid-range alcoholic version. Wines from $25-35, spirits from $30.
conspiracy: Half of the store is dedicated to legalized THC products, including over 60 beverages and locally-made gummies.
- “Sobriety is a spectrum. We wanted to provide an option for people who might be interested in trying less THC alternatives,” Flavin told Axios.
What we tried: We sampled NA tequila and NA gin. Both tasted similar to the real thing, but were a little sweeter and didn’t have a sharp alcoholic aftertaste.
📍visit: 3506 Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis. Open Monday through Saturday from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
