CleanCo use traditional distillation methods to create a range of delicious "spirits" that contain no more than 0.5% ABV. They currently offer alternatives for gin, rum, vodka and tequila, as well as pre-mixed drinks and limited-edition flavoured gins. By distilling 50% of their ingredients, their drinks don’t compromise on flavour or character. Earlier this year, they partnered with Positive Luxury to work towards the Butterfly Mark accreditation. Switching to Flexi-Hex packaging was one of the first steps in their sustainability journey.

After ten years working in the wine trade, Founder and drinks expert, Bethan Higson, started to make this drink during her pregnancy. Bethan is passionate about using organic ingredients from regenerative farms – these ingredients increase soil fertility, conserve CO2 emissions, reduce waste and offer us a higher nutritional value. Plus they taste delicious!
Caleño was born out of a personal frustration when Ellie Webb (Founder) was disappointed by the alcohol-free drinks on offer at bars and restaurants.

Sustainability is at the heart of Caleño and they are currently on course to becoming a B-Corp.
