Alcohol-free endorphin-led alternatives to alcohol set to disrupt the future of socialising
London, UK: 1st March 2021 – The newly established Endorphin Dealer Institute (Edi), founded by two Formula E racing futurists, is pioneering a new category of drinks – non-alcoholic distilled endorphin spirits. These ultra-premium endorphin-led alternatives to alcohol offer a new kind of alcohol-free enjoyment thanks to unique blends of active ingredients that trigger feelings of pleasure and relaxation, without the downsides of alcohol.
“Drinking, its effects, and the ways we socialise have been untouched for thousands of years,” says Jean-Éric Vergne, Edi Co-Founder. “Despite initial industry scepticism, we’ve seen first hand the disruption of high-performance racing without petrol and see a place for feel-good spirits without alcohol. Our non-alcoholic distilled endorphin-led spirits replace the effects of alcohol and will be a key driving force behind the future of socialising and mindful drinking.”
Alexander Jakobi, Edi Co-Founder, adds: “In establishing Edi, we’ve been on a quest to reinvent socialising with an entirely new drinking experience – endorphin-led alternatives to alcohol. Put simply, we’re on a mission to find new ways to feel good, without intoxication. Modern drinkers want more choice, sometimes preferring non-alcoholic drinks for certain occasions and at certain times, but not necessarily wanting to forgo that unwinding feeling.”
Spirited Euphoria is Edi’s first signature release, a unique alcohol-free distilled endorphin spirit made from real hemp and a complex blend of high-quality, natural, active, and uplifting ingredients. Its ‘nootranical’ blend of natural hemp terpenes (extracted from real hemp plants), pure cannabidiol (CBD) isolate, natural nootropics and relaxing adaptogens combine to help drinkers feel good and unwind after a busy day, without inebriation or a hangover.
The beneficial effects of Spirited Euphoria’s nootranical blend builds over a period of time to create the ‘Edi Effect’, a ‘feel-good’ sensation. The active functional ingredients work in synergy to create the effect – which is different for each person, but generally an uplifted and relaxed feeling.
“Spirited Euphoria is the world’s first – and currently only – non-alcoholic distilled spirit crafted using natural hemp terpenes and CBD,” says Helene Locke, Edi’s General Manager who was also behind developing and pioneering many of Diageo’s award-winning brands. “Alongside its functional endorphin effect offering a new way to unwind, Spirited Euphoria showcases the depth of flavour, range and variety of natural hemp, bringing an entirely new category and intriguing palette of flavours to life for bartenders and consumers.”
Describing what goes into crafting Spirited Euphoria, Anthony Wilson, Edi’s Master Blender and creator of Seedlip, says: “I placed endorphins and hemp at the heart of my approach; my focus was always on the outcome of drinking Spirited Euphoria, which is to trigger endorphin pleasure and unlock good feelings using natural uplifting ingredients. The result is an entirely new drinking experience – a noticeable functional effect, without alcohol, achieved from the endorphin effects of hemp and our nootranical blend,” he adds.
In creating Spirited Euphoria, Wilson developed a range of breakthrough distillation processes and used pioneering new technologies to extract ingredients at a molecular level. This allowed him to capture an entirely new palette of interesting flavours from hemp, as well as specific endorphin effects from the nootropics and adaptogens. This physical breaking apart and separation of flavours represents a step-change in the crafting of a new drink and blending them together into a delicious non-alcoholic distilled spirit takes real artistry, likened to the skill and art of whisky blending.
