Global Luxury Brand, Coco Safar unveils World’s First Non-Alcoholic Botanical Micro-Brewery in Cape Town

Yay for beer lovers who are trying to quit alcohol but still like the taste of beer!

Coco Safar has unveiled the world’s first alcohol-free botanical micro-brewery in four refreshingly new non-alcoholic, house-brewed drinks at their Sea Point flagship store. The drinks are made completely from natural botanical ingredients and South African ‘antioxidant superfood’ – rooibos.

Founders, Wilhelm Liebenberg and Caroline Sirois, have spent years developing the new micro-brewery. The brand’s signature Botanical Couture Collection of beverages, consist of a rich and refreshing Red Rooibos Cold Brew, a subtle and herbaceous Green Rooibos Cold Brew, an elegant and invigorating Coffee-Citrus Cold Brew and a complex and timeless Rooibos-Infused Tonic Water. All these beverages are available on-tap and for purchase in beautifully designed copper-foiled Coco Safar bottles, which also comes in a convenient 4-pack bottle carrier.

The Coco Safar beverage line is leading the pack by not only utilizing nutritious botanical ingredients, but also powerful antioxidants and superfoods such as rooibos and 100% pure maple syrup.

So, what are the health benefits to the ingredients?

The polyphenols in rooibos have proven to be anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral, and is one of the most exciting ingredients in Coco Safar’s new beverage line. Rooibos is also rich in many minerals such as calcium, magnesium and fluoride which all promote optimal bone health and is also very low in tannins, which means it is the perfect drink to calm nerves and to ensure a good sleep.                                             

With the rising societal awareness of health problems associated with excessive sugar and alcohol intake, the non-alcoholic beverage market is currently experiencing unprecedented growth. With Coco Safar’s commitment to only sell and serve Coco Safar in-house developed and made products of the highest quality in its café and store. The founders of the brand took a bold decision to not only develop a bespoke cold brew coffee and rooibos beverage line, but to also create a street-level in-house botanical micro-brewery to deliver a signature collection of lightly sparkling bottled drinks that can now be enjoyed at home, and soon in world-class 5-star hospitality establishments across Africa.

If you’re in Cape Town, you definitely should make a stop there and experience a world first taste!
