Ecology & Co
Ecology & Co is a distillery situated in Auckland, New Zealand. The alcohol manufacturer earned the “artisan producer” tag due to its non-alcoholic beverages manufactured only in small quantities.

While others are in awe of the bitter-sweet appeal of gins and tonics, the company choose to go for an alternative minus the alcoholic content. What you get is a mix of distilled botanicals perfectly combined with select ingredients to achieve an aromatic equivalent. The range is free of sugar, carbs, aromas and artificial elements and can be paired with a nice glass of tonic.
