The concept of Solbrü was born out of the idea of wanting to encourage healthy holistic living all packed into one bottle. After enrolling in a holistic nutrition program 3 years ago, the concept of Solbrü began brewing. I stopped drinking alcohol 3 months into the program because I finally asked the difficult question, “why was I taking part in something that had a such a negative impact on my physical, mental and emotional well-being.” Even though I was always conscious of what I ate and had a regular workout routine that was formed from a young age while playing competitive sports, alcohol was the one component in my life that just didn’t seem to fit the rest of my healthy living mindset. After making connections to digestion and mental health issues with booze, I decided to stop drinking.
It has been quite the journey, learning new things about myself and unlearning negative behaviours that no longer serve me. Working through the awkward social moments while remaining sober all night and drinking cranberry sodas and pop, have provided me with clarity about who I really am and how I want to show up for my friends, family and community. It was in these moments that everything clicked, all my experiences lead me to create the sophisticated alcohol-free option for other folks who want a night off from booze or to stop drinking all together.
SOLBRÜ ALCOHOL-FREE ELIXIRS
Ancient wisdom describes an elixir as a magical or medicinal potion designed to cure. Solbrü has redefined a modern elixir as a liquid infusion of herbs that serves a function in the body.
We have soulfully infused a blend of balancing herbs and functional
mushrooms, to raise vibes and ground souls.
Our brü replaces alcoholic spirits in a sophisticated way, with its own unique flavours and novel functionality; delivering a bold authentic bite without the hangover.
Drink it as a shot, sip it on the rocks; or enjoy it in an AF (alcohol-free) cocktail. Pour over a glass of nut or oat milk, or mix it with orange or grapefruit juice for an extra Vitamin C punch.
When we consume beverages that are healthier for our body and mind, we feel more empowered and connected to our souls. We call this mindful consumption. Our brü is soulfully curated for both flavour and functionality, creating a novel social experience.
We produce in small batches in Winnipeg, Manitoba:
no artificial flavours and sweeteners
no refined sugar
non-distilled for flavour and functionality
Our mission is to reduce the negative impact of drinking culture. Our business model includes a portion of profits contributing to addiction recovery programs in Winnipeg.
